From Two Lovely Soupers:


                          Brains

                          By Sandy Ivy D


                               Mmm brains

                               Nothing wrong with mine.

                               It's perfectly washed.


                          Crustacean

                          By Andrea Dietrich


                               edging to his home -

                               the sea - lone beach comber risks

                               life unknowingly




Both poems

 are posted on PoetrySoup.com


and are written

in the following poetic form:


Haiku

    Thank you Ruben, for displaying what I thought is a bad haiku. Glad Andrea, named it a senryu. Hugs S-IVY

    sandy, go back to the drawing board. I really LIKE your haiku a lot! I find it to be clever and witty. I'd just rename it senryu instead of haiku.

    Nikko, glad you liked my cherry blossoms. I removed it from the contest and put Crustacean in its place. Do you remember the haiku contests Raul used to do when he was here? that haiku was based on a picture he showed us of a sea animal in a shell. I worked a long time to come up with that ridiculous haiku!! So it is much more deserving of the worst poems contest than my first haiku I ever wrote on cherry blossoms!

    Yes, I remember Raul's haiku contests-- those were wonderful, him using picture prompts-- I don't recall that particular photo though? I must have missed that, and I was such a contest glutton before...and I have to agree, your cherry blossom haiku is loads better than the Sebastian one (haha I just watch the Little Mermaid again) I love that movie...

    I am no haiku expert but I don't think these are too bad--I like the play on "brainwashed" and Andrea ok yours made me think, but admittedly I really liked your cherry blossom haiku-- that was nice and you wrote that as a kid??

    In this poetry contest, women's bravery compared with male counterparts is remarkable! Are Souper-women braver than Souper-men? : D

    True, except for Abdul. He has been very brave so far.
