At least I THINK that's what happened. Whatever the cause, my post was gone.
Fortunately my poem was only three lines long and easy to re-create.
Unfortunately I also had fifteen funnies underneath it. Not hard to reconstitute, but time-consuming. They'll be coming in a separate post later this week.
It's Poetry Monday, and this week's topic is .....BEAUTY (courtesy of Diane).
Join Diane, MotherOwl, Mimi and me in exploring this topic, or choose one of your own. Leave a poem in the comments, or post on your own blog. If you do the latter, please leave a comment so we can find you. Have fun!
It was a busier than usual week for me, but I kept the poetry topic simmering on the back burner of my mind. There's so much that can be said about "beauty", and I was trying to narrow it down and find the angle that would hook my interest.
I kept coming back to the same thing, over and over. And when the deadline was looming and my brain was mush, I did what I often do under those circumstances: I chose a structured poem format and condensed my thoughts to their shortest form.
Real Haiku is more complicated than just the number of syllables each line contains (5/7/5), but I am ignoring all the rules except the number of syllables for the sake of simplicity.
Because I can.
That's the beauty of Poetry Monday. Nobody is marking your work. Nobody is grading you on following the rules. You're your own boss :)
Beauty - A Haiku
Why don't we all just
Remember that what counts is
Underneath our skin?
That's it, from a very tired Donkey.
Next week's topic will be .............. PAPER ............ Good luck!
Stay tuned for those funnies, and have a pleasant week :)
