VK - I'm not sure - was in a giant pumpkin once when we were way up north - I did have a tiny pumpkin before the frost in Sept, but was rotted by the time we had our party in mid October...  I guess if you put enough spices and sweetener (? maple syrup), anything can taste great :P

MB - I USED to be quite good with prose, but without practice...

I won a poetry contest when I was in the 6th grade, and had to read it in assembly in front of the whole school.
The bad part--my mother had written it for me.  :paranoid:  She was very proud, lol.  I wish I would have saved that.

 :lmao: My mom did the same thing for me when I was in grade 7 or 8. I was supposed to write a mother's day poem for her but she wasn't inspiring any odes within me at the time. I told her I had the poem due and she wrote one about herself the night before. I put it in fancy script and drew rose covered pillars on either side of it. The teacher loved it and made an example of it. lmao. I wish I'd kept that too. Maybe she still has it. I should ask her.

:rofl:  "Mom, I'm supposed to write a poem about how much I love you--will you do it for me?"  (My Mom would have done it too.  Obviously, I guess.)

 :lol: A whole new level of parents doing their kids' homework right there.

 :chuckle:

I mean... I don't stalk anyone...  or anything. That post wasn't some sort of weird Freudian slip. Honest.

Look *jumps around & points up at mu's poem* another beautiful haiku!!
Pay no attention to the previous posts and the stalkery insinuations within them.

Seriously though, that is a good one Mu. Sad but beautiful. You have a real gift with words.

I don't know. . .sort of feel some. . .feeling or emotion, and hear words in my head, and write what sounds alright.  sound of the words has a lot to do with it.

lately she asks me to read them to her so she can write them down; she mainly uses her phone, can't get to a computer much.  she said she might do something like that but it's up to her; they're hers so she can do what she wants with them.

I loved your haiku.  :goodjob:  rhyming and syllables and stuff is always harder.  (you know I can never remember how to spell "rhyme."  :? )

well let's make it up to her and write more haikus (sp?) later. . .
