Celebrate Poetry-4/16: WORK

The theme for Day 16′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “WORK.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

I have to admit, when I saw that my theme for the day was “work,” I thought, “Huh? Now why would you use ‘work’ as a theme? That’s no fun.” But, as I struggled to pull myself from the rubble of my writer’s block, my haiku came to life.

Oh, who wants to write
on such a day? Sadly, my
plot does not thicken.

  1. Must be your original haiku (which is typically seventeen syllables, three lines of 5-7-5 syllables each, but I won’t be a stickler.)
