Our beloved Sensational Haiku Wednesday meme is taxing my brain, and I need your help.
I know you can help me. (Admit it; you’ve started to actually think in haiku, haven’t you.) Oh yes… you can help me.
Check out all the prompts we’ve used over the past year and a half (it’ll open in another tab)… some great words in there! Trouble is, I’m running out of ideas. Well, not technically true, but I am running out of ideas I can use here ;)
I mean c’mon… I used “accident(s)” for next week because I was sitting there watching the late edition news as I wrote up yesterday’s post. Clearly I need some help.
We’re down a bit in weekly Haiku participation too. That distresses me! It’s a no-pressure meme, so I’m not going to come looking for you if you miss a week or two, but haiku is so fabulous, and our group is the best on the planet, so… where is everyone? Ok, J-B is on vacation (which he really needed because he was getting crabby. Just sayin’.), Thom is on a blogging hiatus (which he really needed because he was getting crabby. Just sayin’. Oh wait, I see a theme developing here…), crazily-busy world-traveling Jade had to cut back a bit to every-other-week, and our friend Rosidah just published a book called “TERBIT: setan 911” (which I can’t find a link to just yet) and might be somewhat busy with that!! Woo hoo Rosidah! We’re so proud of you!!! Of course a few others have big projects on their hands, so it’s understandable when they need a break. I get it! No pressure, right?
So… my dear, dear haiku-ing friends, I need 2 things from you.
I need some good words to use in the coming weeks, and I need you to bring your friends. Expand their horizons… haiku is a wonderful state of mind.
Oh, and I need sleep and a vacation, but you probably can’t help with that.
Lay your ideas on me!
