Mooku Challenge

Okay –we’ve got to have some fun while everyone’s off at RWA. So I offer up a Mooku Challenge!

What is Mooku, you ask? Well, it’s just Haiku…for cows.

Your challenge is to come up with a traditional Haiku poem (three lines: first line is five syllables, second is seven, third is five) that includes cows or dairy products.

I offer these three to get us started.

Milk sits in a glass
Its color is white as snow
Is there no Hershey’s?

I wait in the field
My udder is near bursting
Won’t someone milk me?

Old milk in the fridge
You sniff it uncertainly
But who will taste it?

Give it a try.

I’m still enjoying: Delicious and Suspicious by Riley Adams

Quote of the day: Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.

So here's my pathetic attempt keeping in the spirit of the blog - Hope RWA counts as 3 syllables. :)

Off at RWA
They are. Not me. So Crying
In my glass of milk

Well, we may be fudging a little on those RWA syllables but that a good mooku. (Who needs Orlando?)

Dru said...

My scoop is ready
my ice cream dish is empty
Where's the vanila?

Love it, Dru!

I'm not brave enough to try this. Me & poems do not get along!

But at least I know what a Mooku is (as well as a Haiku).

Stacy - Well, this is as far as my poetry skills go. Thanks for stopping by.
