Haiku for You - Celebrating

Celebrating life
The minutes, days, hours go by
Everyday a gift

Very nice! Do you write it on the spot, or practice it before typing it in?

I have a word document and sometimes I'll open it and read what I have. Then, I'll think about what is going on in my life or word that I heard that I liked and I'll just write. Sometimes I'll throw out 10 poems and others I won't even get 1. I'm super sporadic. :)

Cheryl Houston said...

I'm re-reading the poem... is hours one syllable or two? Is Cheryl one syllable or two? It depends on how you say it. Damn accents and proper English!

Peggy said...

Good catch.... yes its the accent and dipthong.... if you'd like to know more.... http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080423114218AAibjzK

Bottom line...life IS a gift!
