modern HAIKU…teachable moments

And by teachable, of course, I mean me. The fabulous one-of-a-kind Janis Ian led me straight down an enticing rabbit hole with her Godzilla haiku, and although I haven’t sent her my own personal homage to the Big Guy yet, I’m having fun with the new toy. Since I’m hoping you’ll add your own quirky lines in Comments (so I can psychoanalyze you), it’s time for me to branch out and experiment with alternate rhythms from yesterday’s teachable moment:

Three five three and I like it!

Two three two? What are the odds?

.

TA-DAA!! That’s the most fun I’ve had since last night and once you screw your brains out into left field and let them freewheel (were you getting worried?), the stanzas jump up and dance. You have to do this, okay? because it’s so much fun and you’ll be so.freaking.proud of yourself. Truth.

.

I’ll just leave this here as the embodiment of inspiration for each of us today:

the-voice-of-the-bagworm

Six five four, did you catch that? Just do it.

      Sorry to miss it, but it isn’t in my WordPress comment notifications, the post itself, or on the dashboard of my site where everything gets done. Please post again!

        I also checked my Facebook page for Playing for Time, and all my spam folders. It somehow didn’t get posted!
