81st Challenge Result (our love’s not that strong.)

March 17, 2010

Apologies for being late (again)! Before we get to Stephen Kellogg’s pick, let’s review.

Sam2U kept us safe:

Keep closer. It’s said
that the werewolves in these woods
hate a good snuggle.

Seth bucked the ratings:

Keep “Closer” – it’s said
to be a far better show.
Cancel “Survivor”.

Izetta gave us good advice:

Keep closer it’s said
When novel pathways tempt you
Root your wayward heart

Karena B hid her haiku on a different page…

Keep closer it’s said
Much closer and I’ll be sad
You smell like dumpster

…and mich wrote a lovely haiku, but the first line was a bit tweaked:

“Keep closer to me,”
Mom said. Still, I wandered off.
“Lost child in aisle three.”

And now to Stephen:

So this was a tough pick as there are many good ones but in the end, I went with Ben’s haiku.

Keep closer. It’s said,
“love something, set it free.” Well,
our love’s not that strong.

I like the break with punctuation to change the first line and I thought it had a good twist. I also look forward to seeing what the new first line for the next haiku will yield…

Thanks, Stephen Kellogg! And congratulations to Ben! Our new first line is our love’s not that strong. Put on your haiku caps, and I’ll see you early next week with Ben’s pick!

Yours,
Joanna

  1. Our love’s not that strong
    said the politician’s wife.
    No interns for you!

    or

    Our love’s not that strong
    that you can go on flirting
    Knock it off right now!

    or

    Our love’s not that strong
    It’s much stronger than you think
    We’ve got it real good!

    Peace,

    Stephen

    Our love’s not that strong
    maybe a second date is
    a good idea?

  3. mich Says:

    Our love’s not that strong-
    willed to survive the coming
    wave of apathy.

  4. CuJen Says:

    Our love snot! That strong
    reminder of the “glue” that
    holds us together.

  5. CuJen Says:

    Our love’s not that strong-
    armed, “keep him on a short leash,”
    insecure bullshit.
