National Poetry Month -- Haiku 24
Yesterday morning I posted about haiku and I linked to a haiku video and I thought about haiku,
but I didn't have time to write and post my own.

(I know, I know. 17 syllables. Should take 17 seconds. But it doesn't. At least not for me. I am the queen of spending about 6 months on 200 words which may well be a sign of illness but so be it...)

I'm good to my word, though.
A haiku a day.
So, yesterday afternoon my daugher inspired this when she updated me on her Painted Lady caterpillar (named Lazy Jane, after a Shel Silverstein character):

Haiku 24

caterpillar spins
her silk button and holds fast --
waits for it to rain

Tanita Says :)

The clouds are hanging heavy here, and I am disappointed not to have yet seen one caterpillar!

I don't think I'll get caterpillars this year...but hopefully next year.

And I'm with you...these take a long time to do right. There are only a few of mine that I think are close to "done" and the rest are all waiting for revision. I don't get enough time to sit and think, which is really what you need to do to capture that moment in time.
