Every Monday Ronovan hosts the haiku challenge. This week the prompt is Field and Beacon. The form is simple, and of course he gives links so you can perfect your form. I use a thesaurus app and an on-line syllable counter. I like to write without the restrictions of counting syllables. When I think it sounds like I want it, I’ll click syllable count. From there I can see where I need to clean it up, less words or more words. It’s my process. The more I write the easier it gets, the more I enjoy it.
Martha and I are delighted that we are able to contribute and especially create! Today the first two are her’s, she finished first. Ha! I haven’t even started.

Bare Bottom Beacon I spy you ore field Your bare bottom a beacon Causing me distress
This is dedicated to my son, Wesley Markham Haynes, who one hot Alabama summer stripped to his cowboy hat, white, and his cowboy boots black, for relief from the heat. I’m nine months pregnant, I think I suffered more than Mark, and I don’t care what the neighbors think. For mercy’s sake folks, he’s only three! My pictures are stored or I’d scan it and post it. It is a treasure.
