Kim from MomImpact is giving away a ticket to Type-A Parent in Asheville. All we have to do is write a haiku discussing why we want to go. And - of course - we have to be members of MomImpact.
Easy, right? Then why did my mind go blank? I couldn't even remember the form of a haiku. Three lines, I remember that. And umm 5-7-5? 5-7-6? Thank you Google. A haiku is 5-7-5, so some of my high school English classes stuck with me. New knowledge? A haiku traditionally contains a seasonal reference and a cutting word. Now that's pressure.
So here goes:
Summer, let me go:
Knifing my way to Asheville
Vision board, fulfilled!
Hmmm... not quite up to standards. Then again, that might be as best as it gets for me. More tries:
Type-A Parent opp:
Spring-like renewal for blog
Slice away stale edge.
Kids home for summer.
Husband home, too, then there's me.
Kim: help a girl out!
Blissdom: learned to
create Facebook page for blog.
What will Type-A add?
Asheville, peace, learning.
Good reasons all, yet there's more.
Friends... and alcohol.
Oops, those last two forgot the season and the cutting word. Last try!
"Cut it out!" I say
Summer returns old routine.
Save my sanity?
My ambition to be a poet has been killed. My apologies to all who enjoy good poetry! As for the hair donation reveal? Tomorrow. I'm giving it a full week to get used to it, but I promise - details and a picture tomorrow.
