TJ’s Household Haiku Challenge – Calendar

This old desk calendar with its celluloid months and numbers marks off the fleeing days.

Where does the time go? Already 2 weeks into 2016!

This week’s prompt is “Calendar”. See what you can do with this. You don’t have to be literal about the prompt or use the word in your haiku. You could be writing about an actual calendar, a picture on a calendar or the idea of time itself. It is all about having fun and being creative.

Last week’s prompt “Tap” led to some wonderfully creative responses.

Tap at the Mont St Michel

Bastet and Sekhmet’s Library is running with a range of tap motifs here is this collection of wonderful haiku and other micro poetry forms.

Judy of Edwina’s Episodes has gone cold for this refreshing haiku.

Kia of ‘The Recovering Know It All’ has taken the prompt and turned it about in 3 ways to produce some very clever haiku.

Creating a Home has gone with other meanings of “tap” and matched them with some great images too! Check them out!

And finally this week – Elusive Trope with a deep haiku dripping with possibilities and meaning.
