we get the message, Sunday is not soon enough for Monday.
"Silver" is the theme for Haiku Monday, December 12, 2011.
Boxer, (who writes great haiku when motivated), is decorating her vintage silver tree this year. Perhaps with silver creations by Chickory. No doubt Moi is striding forth in delicate silver slippers while Fleur scatters silver noted glee. Blowfish would love to have a Silver Cloud in any season while I am content with any serendipitous silver lining. Silver bells are ringing forth from every church while Southern Belles are wearing plenty. Holiday tables are groaning from laden silver servers, punch bowls and platters. Huntsmen like Troll and Uncle are crunching o'er frost silvered grounds while the deer sip from silvered streams. Does Karl festoon his boat in silver or Czar his domain? Perhaps Buzz toasts with silver steins while Pam photographs her new smiling little boy! All speak to this season for gathering joy. My favorite is this:
Moonlight silver hair
halos my mothers beauty.
Soft. Like angel wings
Enter as many haiku as you wish. We will judge two per competitor. If you write more just let us know which two are your entries. If you post visuals at your site let us know with an "I'm Up!" as we do use the visuals in the final judging. Please post all haiku's here. The usual 5-7-5 format applies as does the use of kireji and kigo.
Good luck to all!
Blowfish thinks we should "give a little silver something" to the winner. We are in discussion on this as we keyboard.
