    Siyllably smply won’t do-

      That would possibly defeat the object in my case…

    I won’t even try.
    (That’s all I have to say and it only fulfilled the first 5 syllables. Except now I’ve said too much…)
    I do agree with obbverse… only why stop at two when you could write hundreds?

      I do write hundreds but it’s strictly one per post to maintain the daily blogging schedule

    Judging by your infatuation with haikus I think the last word should have been “seductive” as opposed to “reductive.”

    James you have a choice
    simply choose to raise your voice
    Isn’t spoilt a funny word. I was going to use it in the final line and then I thought, WOW, what a peculiar word spoilt is, but I like it! I feel liberated. I might burn my bra. Oops, did I say that out loud?

    If you’re limited by Haikus Write Prose!
    We don’t all have to be poets Especially when there is so much to say

    Laugh all that you can
    Laugh when things go badly wrong
    Totally Insane

      The reality is quite the contrary. Haikus are much easier than prose but meta poetry is kind of my thing this month
