My Entry for TJ’s HaiKu Challenge
Here’s my entry for TJ’s HaiKu Challenge with the theme of “Bucket”. I’ll let TJ describe the challenge for himself.
“Welcome to TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge. Each Saturday a new household object for you to use as an inspiration for your own haiku. Today’s theme is bucket but you don’t have to use the word, just anything that comes to mind when you consider the object. It could be what it is crafted from, where you keep it, what it holds…anything that takes your fantasy.” -From TJ’s site, check him out.
I first found his Challenge thru Edwina’s Episodes a few weeks ago. Check her out too, Quality stuff. I skipped last week due to the stress of the work week that I talked about HERE, but I’ve really been inspired to write more poetry and HaiKu since I started responding to the Challenge and stepping up to the plate.
I will also plug another site that I have enjoyed recently. It’s Elusive Trope, where the author does a lot of Poetry and Photography together. His words and pictures come together to tell stories and encourage me to think beyond the ordinary. You should really check him out too, you’ll be glad you did. Now for this week’s HaiKu…
Fashioned to contain
Precious gifts, Priceless Treasures
Carried in Plastic.
My Purpose is not
to hold on to or to keep
But to be Poured out.
Filled with Memories
What you need, I have.
