I don’t know why that first part was underlined or how to undo…so just overlook that little annoying detail and enjoy my haiku below! 🙂
Today’s Writing Prompt: Carnival
Posted: 25 Jun 2013 03:30 AM PDT
Remember those carnivals you went to as a kid, or maybe you went on a date to one?! Did you win a big prize, or lose lots of hard earned money trying? Did you see something crazy?
Today is Haiku Day, one of the most popular days of the WordCount Blogathon, where everyone in the month-long blogging challenge is encouraged to write a haiku. In case you’re not familiar with it, a haiku is a Japanese poem form that consists of three lines with a total of 17 syllables: 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the second, and 5 in the third. — Michelle
Texas heat burning
Under shade at Coin Dozer
Watch my money go
(I have always been addicted to this darn coin game where you shoot the coins in and try to knock off the cheap prizes!)
That first haiku was about a good memory….but I decided to do a second on a bad memory.
My 16th Birthday
Happiness turned to Heart Break
Carnival of Cheats
(This was based on seeing my boyfriend with another girl at the fair ON my 16th Birthday and being dumped.)
