Haiku Monday: Joy
Is your calendar choc full of things you want to do but can't fit them all in? Last night was our downtown annual Fall Chili Cook-Off from 12 of our best restaurants. Last weekend was the Harvest Festival, WelcomeBack to the Farm Days with hayrides , corn mazes and veggies to explore. Every mountain community is having apple festivals with folks proudly bringing their best pies, jams, jellies, butters and applewood smoked Q.
This weekend our most skilled surgeons are carving pumpkins while children chase piglets. There are pumpkin patches and pumpkin games and pumpkin festivals of every description!
The weekend traffic counts are up on all the vista roads. Folks just plain yearn to be in the midst of all the Autumnal splendor. To experience this annual miracle in a way that triggers deep breathing , splitting smiles and the comfort of feeling all right with the world.
Joy is in the air and being shared!
Haiku Monday is the perfect location for sharing so this week our theme is: joy
Each participant may enter 3 haiku for judging.
Visuals are welcome and will be a contributing factor in case of ties.
Classic haiku format : 5-7-5, kigo and kireji are required.
The actual word "joy" does NOT have to be in your haiku but,
the emotion should be present.
Entries will be accepted until midnight on All Hallows Eve (PST)
Winner(s) will be announced by Noon on All Saints Day (PST)
To those of you who are new to visiting here at the Pond, please be advised Blowfish ,
will most assuredly participate in the judging. We will make the rounds to your individual blogs to see the visuals but please post all your entries here.
Good Luck Everyone!
