Hashtag #HaikuChallenge

This will be quite the challenge, but I will certainly try!

HEIDI J on the LOOSe

Just as I was about to fall asleep last night, I had this intense urge to write a bunch of Haikus. And I had this thought:

One Hundred Haikus

Instead of Status Updates

New Writing Challenge.

Seriously though, how cool would it be if we just started replacing our tweets and Facebook updates with daily silly, dirty, goofy, sappy, wacky, witty, emotional and even radical haikus and we just flood the interwebs with micropoetry?!

weaving together broken strands that will tell the human story?

in this pitiful notebook that leaves no judgment to be faced.

I get so FRUSTRATED

I haven’t a clue what to write-

I am so afraid to pick up my pen-

or turn that crisp page,

because the moment I start I’ll be interminably engaged.

Once I begin, desperately I try to finish each piece,

vowing to somehow find my release.
