Twitter Haiku Challenge!
Twitter is a fun social network, great for meeting new people, exchanging ideas and info...and finding new addictions. My latest addiction was founded by a Twitter user named @baffled, who began a daily challenge to create haiku poetry (senryu is also accepted) incorporating a word-of-the-day. You can find @baffled on Twitter, or do a search on Twitter under the topic #haikuchallenge to see the latest entries. Even people who don't Twitter can join in the fun by going to Baffled's site: http://haikuchallenge.tumblr.com/
What follows are my challenge entries so far for December. I hope you enjoy reading my haiku/senryu poetry, and please feel free to comment on likes or dislikes! I'm greedy for feedback. ;)
Challenge word haze Moon glows undaunted Through haze of jealous thin cloud Celestial pride.
Challenge word field Fawn takes light steps in Wide field of unbroken white Innocent courage.
Challenge word course Glacial cold seeks and Follows its instinctive course Ancient memory.
Challenge word myth Ancient icy wind Smothers world in white, turning Footprints into myth.
Challenge word wager Sun meets horizon Wager lost against twilight Night reaps its rewards.
