Orangeberry Summer Splash - in Haikus

How would I go about summing up Hatred Ridicule & Contempt in a Haiku? Like this: -

Libel action trial
Lawyer partnership turmoil
Who will win and lose?

How tempting, then, to take this a step further for the Orangeberry Summer Splash and invite fellow authors to write their own. Here are the first six: -

Donna Brown, Double Take Tales: -

Three tales with a twist
And a glimmer of bright hope
All have a message

Darlene Jones, Embattled: -

Burqas and beaches
Mysteries and miracles
Two lives. Two lovers

Keri Nola, A Year On Your Path To Growth: -

A year of growing
Authentically each step
Empower yourself

Marie-Anne Mancio, Whorticulture: -

Antebellum life
Choose friend, lover, whore, or wife
Whose lie is biggest?

Gean Penny, Bobby Jay: -

Patches fill its cloth
Stories shared between those left
Lonely for Grandpa

And finally for now, Kim Dalferes, I Was In Love With A Short Man Once: -

Crazy Southern Irish gal
Grows up to become?
Heartfelt smiles and fun.

More to follow, no doubt!

  5. It's harder than you think but a great way to define the focus of a book. Thank you for hosting!

  6. That is way cool...I've got to work on mine.
    I agree with Hotel does help define the focus of the book.
    I'm going to link to this from my blog if that's kosher.

    1. Dawn, feel free to link - only too pleased!
