88th Challenge Result (His mistake or mine?)

June 21, 2010

Good grief, where have I been?! I apologize for the month-long sabbatical, people! I’ll try my hardest not to let it happen again!

Before we get to Sharon’s pick, let’s review…

Stephen Kellogg gave us a very sweet rhyme:

Sleeping in my bed
With a pillow for my head
And my wife – now wed

and a fairy tale:

Sleeping in my bed
Is a blond little girl
The little bear said

and a bit of seduction:

Sleeping in my bed
Thoughts of you drift thru my head
Sweet dreams of you love

Ben reflected on some unfortunate circumstances:

Sleeping in my bed.
That’s where I should be, but it’s
the drunk tank for me.

And now to Sharon…

Among the few entries, some were really sweet, but I had to go with the one that made me laugh, by CuJen:

Sleeping in my bed
is a man I’ve never seen.
His mistake or mine?

(It also has a good last line for a first line, but that’s beside the point…)

Thanks, Sharon! And congratulations to CuJen, who probably doesn’t even remember writing that haiku after all this time! 🙂 So our new first line is His mistake or mine? Since it has been awhile, I will remind you that capitalization and punctuation may be changed. Start writing, and I will do my very best to be back early next week with CuJen’s pick!

Yours,
Joanna

    His mistake or mine?
    Either way, we’re stuck here in
    Haiku backwater.

    His mistake or mine–
    rhetorical wheel-spinning;
    the end is the same.

    His Mistake, or Mine?
    I chose the gold mine, left his
    limp portfolio.

    His mistake, or mine?
    Well, just what would you do with
    a Vuvuzuela?

    His mistake, or mine?
    Nine months or a test result?
    only time will tell.
