|Me. Dave. Working.|
Oh, it might not look like it there, but I have been hard at it. At the writing game! Long-time readers of the Ao4 Digest may remember that I have quite the poetic streak and invented my own form of poetry - the Haik-Woo. After a long dry spell, I've written a new Haik-Woo to share with you. First, a little background...
Many of you are familiar with the Japanese haiku: three lines, 17 syllables total of non-rhyming verse -- 5 syllables in the first line, 7 in the middle, and 5 in the last. Haik-Woo is similar, only the last word of that third line has to be my favorite word - "woo". It's very challenging to get your point across descriptively yet briefly. And that's why Haik-Woo is quite the art form.
This new Haik-Woo is dedicated to my kid brother, Zim. He's been through a lot lately and is on a new prescription diet. That's pretty tough to handle, but it really helps that Mom makes him his special Frozen Treats and Zim's Stinky Goodness Jerky Treats. Without further ado, I give you Haik-Woo #41:
I did a special reading for Zim the other day. This was his reaction:
|"That's one of the most beautiful things I've ever heard!"|
He's got a great appreciation for poetry.
Stinky Goodness treats for everyone!
