If you attended the wonderful Inlandia Book Fair held this past Saturday at the Barnes and Noble, Riverside, you will remember that I invited participants and guests to try their hands at the Ashberrian (or is it Ashberryian?) haiku: 5 syllables, 7 syllables, 5 syllables in each line of your poem. Make as many lines as you want for your Thanksgiving oeuvre.
Here’s an example of this sort of poetic line:
Thanksgiving turkey? Yes, it can be fabulous — if I don’t cook it.
Please keep your poems free of extremely dirty words, and of racism, sexism, homophobia, ableism, classism, ageism and the like.
Put them in a comment, and I’ll post — subject to moderation.
PS — please support Inlandia by buying books at Barnes and Noble and using the special INLANDIA code: 11484482 — good through 11/28!
