Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Numbered Haiku

This week's challenge set by Jenn at www.youknowthatblog.com is NUMBERS

Puzzling numbers
Establishing a pattern

Mind boggling grid

Those minus numbers
Dictate the season's weather
Chilling reminders
Scary row of men
An identity line-up
Whose number is up?


Complicated sums
Challenging relationships
All in a school day

To write Haikus there are just a few rules:

  1. The lines should not rhyme
  2. The first line has 5 syllables (e.g. Put on the ket tle)
  3. The second line has 7 syllables (e.g. Pol ly make a cup pa now)
  4. The last line has 5 syallables (e.g. Take it off a gain)
  5. Traditional haikus involve the seasons and nature.
  6. Each line should be able to stand alone and not carry to the next line
Have you got a haiku to share?
