Inspirational haiku for bloggers (5 more for the weekly challenge)

Ok, so these aren’t all “exactly” inspirational, and they’re not all “exactly” for bloggers, but that is how I choose to tie them together, because these are all thoughts that I have had in the last couple of hours while working on writing.

Maybe a better title for the five would be “The things that I think about while writing.”

Don’t stare at your blog
Thinking that it looks so cool
Write and write and write
Seeing your haiku
It’s always in italics
So that’s what I’ll do
Social networking
seems to be the only way
I am social now
Petting my black cat
Instead of writing down words
Too cute to stop though
Sometimes I feel smart
But sadly most of the time
Dumb as a rock pile

Daily Post Weekly Writing Challenge

A haiku series on writing

photoI wrote these five poems for the WordPress’ Daily Post Weekly Writing Challenge. It is a haiku challenge, “you choose the topic”. I thought it was a pretty cool challenge for myself to see if I could actually do it. I had some fun 🙂

I chose “writing” for my topic, which made this exercise really interesting.

I like this first line
The second is not better
Just ‘cus it’s longer
Sometimes what you say
Is not quite as important
As what you don’t say
If you have the time
Be as real as you can be
Always have the time
 The masters of art
Always say the same darn thing
Be yourself and DO!
Being musical
Does not always help me think
Being honest does
