NaHaiWriMo 2020: week 1

hand in hand
we walk along . . .
birdsong

[2/1 prompt = hand]


first movie!
their child talks
to the screen

[2/2 prompt = first movie]


going up!
high into the sky
on the seesaw

[2/3 prompt = playground and playground equipment]


from here to there
and back again —
this daily commute

[2/4 prompt = trucks, trains, boats, and planes]


English country dance —
Lizzy and Darcy
square off

(For the Jane Austen fans among us!- )

[2/5 prompt = accordion, street music, or folk music]


robo-firefly —
its tiny taillight
flashing

(In the style of scifiku.)

[2/6 prompt = fireflies, glow worms]


“Bad dog!”
away with a burger
the whippet

[2/7 prompt = write a bad haiku]
