Assorted, in Haiku

Registration for
summer Bravewriter courses
begins tomorrow.


Ants in my keyboard:
Not that I would ever eat
cookies while blogging…


Do you know all these
? ‘Merican Heritage
thinks high school grads should.

Most of the words on
that list are entire lines of
haiku by themselves:

obsequious xenophobe


I’m nearly certain
I have counted wrong somewhere.
Are you checking me?

I can’t decide how
many syllables in the
word "entire." Two, three?

Perhaps it depends
on just how Southern you are.
En-tye-err? Ent-ire?

    Fun post, Lissa! I was counting syllables without even thinking about it… how’d you know? Maybe “entire” technically has 2, but it sure sounds like there’s another 1/2 syllable in there when this lifelong Hoosier says it and I’m sure there are Southerners who can get at least another syllable or two out of it!

  4. Ellen says:

    I thought the Southerners would be the ones pronouncing entire with 2 syllables: en-TARR. Loved the one about the ants!

  5. Theresa says:

    Baa haa!I was counting and entire totally threw me. I know it SHOULD be 2, but goldarn it if it don’t sound like 3 when I say it. Y’all.

    LOL about the ants!

    As I read, my kids are watching Paula Deen on the Food Network. My vote is for *at least* three syllables.

    Ellen has a good point about en-TARR. Maybe it depends where in the South?
