"Wordplay Wednesday"#3!

Thanks so much for all of your congratulations for Chelsea and me on the birth coming up in our family!!  That was so nice of all of you!!  I heard from Krissy last night and she is holding up.  John finished his chemotherapy yesterday and is still able to sit in a chair, so that is a good sign.  The doctors called him a "Star Patient".  Please pray for his transplant on Friday.  I will keep you all up-to-date as best as I can.

Today is Wednesday so I have an installment of "Wordplay".  I hope you guys take a stab at this one.  It takes some thought, but it will be lots of fun!  Here it is...


One of my favorite poems to write is the haiku.  I like the flow and rhythm of them.  I like that they don't rhyme. 

Haiku defined from Merriam Webster - an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively.

Paper holds choice words
          Plucked while dancing in my thoughts
          A haiku is born

I would love to read a haiku you have written!  Leave it in the comment section or write it in your journal and leave me a link so I can go read it!  Write on a favorite subject of yours!  Go ahead, give it a try!!  You know you want to try it =)!!  Thanks for playing!

Have a good day everyone! xox

    Koda is my pup
    He runs, plays, has too much fun
    Running through the snow

  17. OK I made it back to read a little more about you!  Congrats on becoming a grandma!!  I am not far behind you.  I just turned 30 - BUT I have 3 stepkids that are 18, 16 and 15.  Then my 5 kids are 13, 9, 6, 4 & 3.  So I am probably just a few years behind you!
    Now I really stink at this poetry thing!  So I am not even going to try!  HeHe!  You have the link to my main journal!  Here is the link to my other one also!


Please leave your thoughts - fun, intelligent, silly, joyful, spacy - it matters not =)
