Peyton Price is probably the nicest blogger out there. Although, I probably shouldn’t call her a blogger, because while the rest of us are blabbering on with no character limit whatsoever, Peyton is writing all her thoughts on modern parenting in three line seventeen syllable haikus.
She’s calls herself “Suburban Haiku” and writes regularly for NickMom, when she’s not penning her own book called “Suburban Haiku: Poetic Dispatches from Behind the Picket Fence“.
Think writing a haiku is easy? You should try it. They need to have five syllables in the first line, seven syllables in the second line and five again in the third.
Here’s a small sampling of Peyton’s brilliance to get you in the mood:
I feel inspired. Here’s my first haiku…
Baby’s diaper full
Hand her over to daddy
“It’s your turn sucka!”
That was fun! I’m going to write another…
convincing my kid
her dinner tastes delicious
while my food gets cold
Wanna give it a try? Write a parenting haiku in the comments. I’ll give away one copy of Suburban Haikus to my favorite haiku!
Or you know, leave it to the expert and buy Petyon’s book.
