A White Pumpkin Family Review

Cotton Candy is a pumpkin who
Is known as White Pepo too.
Her nice rounded shell
She keeps very well,
And one day she met Baby Boo.

Baby Boo is quite small, and at night
He might glow, an albino pure white.
He is both good looking
And good at cooking!
He and white Pepo make a rare sight.

Cotton Candy (White Pepo) and he
Got together, and baby made three.
With skin color cream,
The baby’s a dream
And he’s part of the Ghost family.

Like his Mom, maybe better, is he.
Ghost can keep for a long time and be
Just like his Dad too.
Like that small Baby Boo,
In the oven he can bake sweetly.

Another White pumpkin, meanwhile,
In Carol’s patch sat on a pile.
Smooth, round and pure white,
An adorable sight,
Is this pumpkin with decorative style.

Other pumpkins can read this and weep
For Halloween has a new peep!
For MINE, cute and small,
Has the name of Snowball
And clear up to Christmas can keep!

White pumpkins eh? well I can honestly agree with Joyce that many foods do not taste like foods anymore and that is the reason I like to grown my own. Nice poem on pumpkins. Good luck in the contest. love phyl

Great writing Andrea. I wasn't very nice in my assessment of the white pumpkin. It is because I am so unhappy about what they have done to our foods, just to give them long shelf life. Maybe white aren't in that ilk. I get no enjoyment of corn on the cob anymore and I used to love it. They have sweetened it up ad nauseum. As well as strawberries now taste like wood and watermelon has no texture and something has happened to canteloupe. Chicken tastes like no chicken from the farm ever tasted and I could go on and on. My brother went through several cartons of diet pepsi a week. I tried to get him to drink the sweetened kind but he said it didn't taste right. I think along with all of the medicines he took that it was the cause of his kidney failure. Joyce

the lamps go out is the same as the last. Andy I think you have a misconception that the content can make a haiku, but it can not. Light go out has two parts. the lights and the giggle and the cut. Senry would just say "the light go out and I hear giggles" there's a big difference.

the definition of a haiku is and has been three lines of poetry. two lines which form a phrase and one line which is a fragment (the subject). The fragment can go above the phrase or below it but never between. The two lines of the phrase have to link grammatically and conceptually to each other and be related in some way to the fragment, either directly or opposing. but in a way to recognize a shift from a sensory perception in the first part of the poem to another in the second part.

i don't think you have had time to see the first comment this poem, but in addition let me add this. Haiku has long been moving away from nature into the nature of man and then on into everday man affairs. Some of my haiku reflects this new trend. Although nature was all that used to be written about that was never a rule of the form. That was all the master wrote and the people did likewise.

Andy the difference between haiku and senryu is not what is written about. It is the form. Senryu is written in three lines but unlike haiku, it only make one statement. Haiku makes two, and one is a comparison of the other at a little bit later point in time. Senryu, you just see it ane write it. One statement. Thats it. Senryu is also comical, light hearted much like the limerick, where haiku is serious about being true. Even a comical scene will still maintain the haiku look.
