Her mad bauble-chasing fun
Used to make me laugh.

Now it's your turn...Give it a try!
Haiku is a beautiful and elegant form of Japanese poetry. The simplified version of haiku is usually described as an un-rhymed, three-line poem of 5 syllables, 7 syllables, and 5 syllables. See what you can come up with using the theme of pets and a holiday of your choice (Christmas, Hannukkah, New Year's, Kwanzaa, etc).

Then leave your haiku in the comments section of the original post for a chance to win one of three prizes:
THREE winners will be selected at random and each will receive a

$25 gift certificate to my Etsy Shop!

Each person may leave up to three different haiku in the comments, for three chances to win.

Thanks for participating!
