It was a long day at engineering camp and the other side of my brain (not to mention my body) needed a little exercise. So after working late, eating dinner, and changing clothes, there was a short, but productive Haiku Festival held at the bunk house.
Once mentally refreshed, I grabbed the bike for a short night time commute to my office computer (great night for a bike ride).
Hoping to amuse Janet, there was a barrage of email messages with Festival results. Here’s the one I would have guessed she’d like you to see…
Long in the middle
and just as tall either way;
laying or standing
Or maybe this one…
A pile of dachshunds
three breathing donuts sleeping
it was a long walk
Instead of the bike photo above, I guess I really should have inserted a dachshund photo, but I didn’t have one handy. Wait a minute…here’s one!
There…doesn’t that look like a whole mess of trouble?
your use of “pile” is shaky, at best. 1 or 2 syllables?
Ellen,I know you are one of those deep east Texas residents, but officially “pile” is one syllable.A – syllable onepile – syllable twoof – syllable threedach – syllable fourshunds – syllable fiveThat there is a rock-solid five-syllable line, friends.
