May Day Shares

Jeffrey here, back for another week here at Unicorn Bell. Thanks for covering for me yesterday, I was out tending to a paragraph that required all of my attention. I almost had to take it to the ER (that's Emergency Revision here, just so you know), but things worked out at the last minute.

Moving into new business, it being a new month and all, May Day has arrived. For the purposes of today's post, I will take the general notion of sharing on May Day and turn it into something applicable here. I want you to share your favorite prose or poetry that you've written and share it with us. Bonus kudos points go out to anyone who can incorporate some element of springtime into what they share with us.

Here's my entry, a haiku that won me a gift card a couple of years back:

Hunger fuels my rage
Waiting by the order box
They'll be right with me.



As you can see, there's a bit of an edge to this piece, but I'm really proud of it because of the emotion it evokes. So no, the pieces you share today don't have to be sunny. The only absolute qualifier is that you're proud of whatever work you post.


Back tomorrow!

LOL. I took a completely different approach to May Day, but hey, to each their own, eh?

So, uh, for my reference, where exactly is the ER? =)

I love the haiku. It's so simple yet profound.

I want

I want
More.
Summer
Walking with my dog
Reveling in green
The evening breeze
Rippling across
The water tumbling
Over rocks
Crickets
Apple blossoms
The distant whistle
Of the train
Coming


(hope this formats properly. I'm closing my eyes...)

Congrats on the haiku. It may be fullm of rage, but there's wit there too.

I like the haiku, too; it's very appropriate for our society.
