happy paddy day

I didn't think I could add much to Mark's bonnie Irish fest, until Rachelle Gardner put up a haiku challenge on writing or St Patrick's Day. Of course I incorporated both. (contest open until 3/18! awesome prizes!)

Starting to query
Fingers crossed. Sure could use some
   Luck o' the Irish!   


And here's some March Madness, a 50 word challenge from Cafe Muravyets using the bold words.

He looks left. He looks right.

He plucks the ball like a plum before it can ripen and dribbles down court.

Under a downpour of cheers, he makes his move.

He shoots and is snagged by moronic defender. Mercifully the ref calls foul.

Two shots, all net.

We win!

Very nice poetry even if I am not a particular fan of basketball. I am able to watch the last 10 minutes of a game. That's the only time it's exciting.
