{June 25, 2013}   One Minute Carnival Haiku

Today , I have combined the  One Minute Post Prompt with  Haiku Day  on the WordCount Blogathon and done a Carnival Haiku!  

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?

wcToday 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

CARNIVAL HAIKUS

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.)

Today’s Writing Prompt: Design

Today write about a design that is inspirational to you!

Interior Design that involves books in anyway is very inspirational to me! I feel a picture is worth more than a thousand words for this prompt, so here is a picture of a wonderful reading nook that greatly inspires me!

Today’s Writing Prompt: Pride
 What have you been able to accomplish so far in 2013 that you are really proud of? I feel really proud that I have been able to continue my weight loss from the last part of 2012 and I’m still losing. When you make a big life change like I have, you sometimes worry if you’re going to be able to stick it out through the long haul and here I am, 9 months in and still going strong! I feel very positive that THIS time is not like the LAST time or any other time. This time is not dieting, this is changing my lifestyle and it’s going to be a permanent change for the better!

A little over a minute, but I felt I needed to to get my feelings across. 🙂

Today’s Writing Prompt: Silly Bands
My 7 year old daughter asked if she could pick today’s prompt. She chose silly bands. Little or much to write about depending on how you interpret the word “band”!

This prompt makes me think of rubber bands, which I guess ‘Silly bands” technically ARE except in silly shapes. I’ve never tried out a “silly band” but I’ve gotten hit with a Rubber Band before and there was nothing silly or happy at ALL about that!

Worth the trouble

“He couldn’t see why people made such a fuss about people eating their silly old fruit anyway, but life would be a lot less fun if they didn’t. And there was never an apple, in Adam’s opinion, that wasn’t worth the trouble you got into for eating it.” ~from Good Omens
