NaPoWriMo 2018: 10/30

 

JRM solThanks to Two Writing Teachers for providing space each week to reflect on life.

 

Copy of 2017 NaPoWriMo

I’ve been writing haiku/haiga most days this month.  I’m also doing a prompt-a-day from Two Sylvias Press.  They are fun and I wish I could spend most of my days writing,

Today I’m sharing a Shadorma (3-5-3-3-7-5) on a superstition, the prompt from April 2.

My grandmother always did this whenever working with cucumbers.

Cucumber Ends

grandmother
sliced a cucumber
making a
circular
motion with the end. Getting
the poison out

when I slice
garden cucumbers
my hand guides
the end piece
in circles. What a cure for
superstitious lives.

  2. Hi Jone. Thanks for teaching us about shadorma. Who knew? There are many times I sit to write haiku or tanka and wish for more syllables. Yeah! And is there really a part of the cuke that’s bad for you? I eat the whole thing!
