Poetry Friday Olympic Haiku

Since the 2008 Olympics have been keeping me up late watching swimming, beach volleyball and ahh yes....gymnastics, I've been napping more and writing less during my commutes to downtown Chicago.

Having said that, I offer the following silly haiku (17 sylables is a good representation of my output for the week).

Nastia wins gold
The all around champion
But Shawn is butter

If you didn't see this link earlier in the week at Big A, little a (or elsewhere), viewing it will help you understand.

Roundup is at Read, Imagine, Talk.

I love the idea of writing a Haiku! I believe I will start this. Thanks, Jim!

That is ridiculous, in the best possible way. :-D

Kelly: Glad I made your evening

Tricia: Haiku can be fun!

Lisa: In terms of ridiculous -- how about the Shawn statue's choelesterol level??? :-)
