#Haiku Happenings #5: Shannon Blood’s latest haiku for #NaHaiWriMo!
Sometimes I think half the fun of writing to prompts is the rabbit hole of research it sends me down. Take today’s NaHaiWriMo prompt “pig’s feet” — over time, I’ve assembled bits and pieces of trivia on pigs from reading books like Charlotte’s Web, Little House in the Big Woods, and Drums of Autumn. However, a little keyboard tapping reveals “pig idioms and expressions” or a brief historical lesson in pig ownership and usage. And what about pig’s feet and the White House? Maybe a bit more soul food would be good . . . So! Take the plunge and dig a little with the daily prompts. You never know what you might learn. Bon Appétit!
