THE WRITER GAMES, Part 3: Short Skate


Welcome to The Writer Games.
If you're peeking in for the first time,
this is a competition in the spirit of the upcoming
Olympic Winter Games. Only, this competition is for writers
and does not include endorsements on a Wheaties box.
There are prizes, though, including blog interviews, medals, and something bright...

Today's competition is The Short Skate,
or Haiku.

In case you need a refresher, a Haiku is a poem of three lines.
The first and last line contain five syllables, the middle line has seven.

Haiku Event:
Write a Haiku about Winter, Love or Sports
(in honor of the upcoming Olympics, and St. V's day)

You have until February 19 at midnight to enter any of the competitions.
For more details, check out Monday's post.
I can't wait to see what you come up with! This is a fine batch of writers, and so far it has been a hoot reading your entries.

My try: "Winter Springs"
Come grow old with me
We'll laugh at the gray hairs and
Count the wrinkles there

school is closed today
the kids are jumping for joy
mommy is crying

True love is the way
He recharges my cell phone
Before he does his

Julia Kelly said...

Winter is here forever
A Winter with no Christmas
Oh, where is Aslan!

Ha! Made me think of another author to add to my kids reading list- C.S Lewis and of course Tolkien-

He leans over me
waking me from the dream world
Joy - to enter his.

slick sheet of pond ice
resembles snowcone shavings
when the skaters leave

Will try to drum up a haiku later. Just hopped across to tell you there is something waiting for you on my blog.

A life of romance
Is filled with these little things,
Cat vomit for one

Yes I had a bad pet morning alright? O.K., so I don't come off as a total lout, here's another,

Her eyes hold the sky
She is my inner sunlight
Rousting my shadows

surfing:

i take two long strokes
pausing halfway to my feet
then leave time behind

Faith Pray said...

Beautiful entries, guys! I, for one, shall now cherish "vomit" as one of romance's building blocks.

New clothes on my wife
My opinion is asked for
I better think fast

Inspired by real events and hence why I am entering in the short skate but am unable to enlist in the pair competition.

Dreams of the pair skate
Were squashed by puberty
And her thunder thighs
