Three Classified Ad Haikus - a Poetry Princess Post

This month's poetry sister project was haiku - specifically, haiku in the form of classified ads. Three of them. And man, I found this so much harder than it sounds. Here are what I came up with:

Chickachickachick
Single cicada seeks mate
Chickachickachick

For free: one mattress
Includes foam mattress topper,
Future ex-husband

Want: Cabana boy
Grapes and fans not optional
Life is too damned hard

I hope you will check out the wonderful work by my poetry sisters:

Laura Purdie Salas

Tanita Davis

Andi Jazmon

Liz Garton Scanlon

Tricia Stohr-Hunt

Sara Lewis Holmes
