#Alphabet Haiku: This Week – Letter V – Vultures

 Alphabet Haiku, which is a Weekly Challenge of Abigail Gronway, this week it is the letter (V)

  • Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.
  • When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5
  • Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions. They possess no references to the natural world and thus stand out from nature/seasonal haiku.

      • I had to stop writing for a bit , with so much happening to me and my family. I have been reposting poems from a while back, and keep expecting to get back to writing the next week. But so far I have not managed it. I have managed mostly to keep up with those I follow, but not to get back to writing.

      • Yes, I won’t be writing everyday either, but that’s a great idea, I can’t keep up with all I follow, but I certainly will read the ones that like or comment on my blog, as I don’t have the spare time as I used to have to spend on WordPress. Thanks for the reply, hope your Sunday is peaceful.

  1. I am so pleased to see you, Elsie; my little heart lifted when I saw your ‘like’… 🙂
    I read, above, that you have a gum infection! Here’s hoping that gets sorted real quick, and that you’ll feel well enough to make the occasional post. They really are wonderful – and you have been missed..

    • Thanks for the nice comment, I have missed you all also. My mouth isn’t very good, it’s very sore, my tongue is very sore, it has lumps under it, and the top is very tender like it’s been burnt, that’s extra on top of toothache on both side of my gums. Oh well, hopefully it gets better soon with antibiotics, which is upsetting my stomach. Peace my friend hope you are having a nice, not too hot weekend.

      • Oh, Elsie; that isn’t at all good. I know what you mean about the antibiotics and tummy upset – and yet they are a necessity; until something better is found.
        Sending hugs over the waves… 🙂

  2. My dad gets that tongue problem- thrush- caused by overgrowth of yeast because the good bacteria get killed along with the bad bacteria. There are remedies for that. I know he gets some oral rinse from his doctor. My mom always tells him to eat yogurt with the live cultures. And lay off sugar for the time being as those bacteria feed on it. My heart goes out to you. I hope it clears up very soon. Glad you’re back!
