Writers’ Pantry #66: A Bat and a Haiku Walk into a Bar…

I’ve no idea how the statement (joke?) in the subtitle should end. But yesterday was the International Haiku Poetry Day and Bat Appreciation Day, so said subtitle just felt right. If you can think of how to finish that joke, dear Poets and Storytellers, by all means bring it on. I would love to read it (I’m always up for a batty laugh *cough*).

On a more serious note, I was searching the Web for bat haiku (yes, I said, “bat haiku”), when I ran into nightpoetry: poetry, prose, perspective, photography, archaeology and music. I’ve really enjoyed what I’ve read of the poet, including the haiku below:

Now, to the Writers’ Pantry! Share your poetry or prose. Let your contribution be old or new, fiction or nonfiction, short or longish (if you choose prose, then your word count should be 369 words or fewer). One link per participant, por favor. This prompt will remain open for a week. Let us write. Let us share. Let us read. Let us discuss and such…

- for our next Weekly Scribblings, our Rosemary invites us to scribble poetry or prose about April. Those who are writing one poem-a-day should feel free to share one of those pieces here (from April, 2021) rather than write a new one. Or, if you can wait until Wednesday, she’ll share a number of writings about April which you may use to inspire your own.

And happiest (belated) International Haiku Poetry Day and Bat Appreciation Day!

Weekly Scribblings #65: Bird is the Word

Hello, Word Artists and Admirers! This week's prompt is for the birds. You can shape your words around a particular type of bird or birds, or just birds in general. I'll take any poetry and prose, fiction and non-fiction. I'll also take reworked older pieces that have been significantly re-written. But just one piece per person please and do keep your prose pieces to 369 words or fewer. Thanks!
