Plinky Question of the Day


The Plinky Question of the Day is a weekly feature I added to the blog to get to know you guys better and vice versa.  Sometimes the questions will deal with books or reading but, most of the time they won’t.  Because, let’s face it, there’s more to us than what we read.


Write a haiku about something that drives you nuts.

So I figured I’d challenge myself (and you guys) with this week’s question/prompt.  Haikus remind me of elementary school.  My 4th and 5th grade teacher would ask us to write haikus for an annual poetry competition that took place at the Dade County Youth Fair.  If we participated we gained free admission to the fair to see where our masterpieces placed in the competition (and to ride the rides of course).  I think my best ranking was 3rd.  Not bad for a 9 or 10 year old, eh?  Enough of the reminiscing.  Here’s a haiku dedicated to one of my biggest pet peeves…


Horns blaring loudly
It’s too early for this crap
Get out of my WAY!

Okay so maybe this wouldn’t rank in a haiku competition but, it’s pretty close to how I feel when I’m stuck in Miami gridlock.

How about you lovelies?  Take a crack at creating a haiku about something that drives you crazy.


  1. It's so annoying
    Talking bout all the drama
    Leave me out of it!
