The Poet In Me

I joined a haiku writing contest over at Scrap N' Art. A haiku is a form of poetry that originated in Japan. It consists of 17 syllables. The requirement was to make a haiku with a "School's Out" theme because it's summertime in the U.S.

My "composition":

Hey let's roll, let's run
Let's go out and have some fun
'Cause guess what? School's done!

And guess what? I won! Yahoo! Never thought I had it in me. Hahaha! But seriously, I was lucky that they drew my name out of more than 50 entries. And the good news is I get a prize from Rusty Pickle! Double yahoo!!!
