About Adam Hapworth
(Show Details...)
Bloggers PhotoFor all the wonderful people who post comments on my writes, Please don't mind me as I'm not much of a reader.  I've never been one to read with emotion, I'm a Technical manual, or news kinda guy.  If I pick up a book (rarely) its non fiction. So I fail to comment on much and I apologize.  It is though a great joy to be able to express my feelings with words and see them touch many of you. Thank you all1

I'm just a regular guy in my mid 30's with 4 kids (14, 12.5, 5, 3.5) and a loving wife of 14 years. I work for a power company as a computer programmer, which has its days.

My wife has been working nights and I decided to send her haiku's for fun for her late night breaks. I was in a low spot when I started and now 5 months later it has become a fun challenge finding the words :)

I may not be the most graceful writer or best user of grammar but it doesn't stop me from trying :)

I hope you all enjoy.

(Don't mind me as I try out a bunch of new forms till I find my niche :) )

Thank you to all who entered my first contest. It was great to see the creativity shown using just a simple random prompt. I enlisted the help of my lovely wife and we had a nice time reading them together to find our favorites. Looking forward to the next bright idea I come up with for another entertaining contest.

Till then Have Fun.
Adam

    It was called a Tough Mountain Challange held here in Maine. A 5k obstacle race up Sunday River Ski Resort. It is based on the Tough Mudder 12 mile obstacle challanges. We did one of those last year :)
