Tuesday's NaiSaiKu Challenge

The NaiSaiKu Challenge is a writing prompt that lets you create a fun piece of poetry. Try it yourself.

(And I apologize for not getting around to reading some of your blogs. It's been crazy time, which continues.)

a child walks cautious,
crumpled cups on these mean streets,
everyone’s hustling
LONELY STREET CORNERS
everyone’s hustling,
crumpled cups on these mean streets
the child wishes, prays

Thanks for posting Thom!
I keep reminding my son about 'The Paperhangers' in New York... He's gone to Canada this week, but I was more worried about him changing trains in London!

Nicely!!

First of all, keep swimming! We certainly do not want a tragedy on this blog!

And - I love the sounds these words make - the idea is a little sad of course.

A little sad, but beautiful.

A few weeks ago I said I was turning a 3WW into a song...if you'd like to hear it, its on the music player widget on my sidebar over on my blog.
