Dictionary Word of the Day Haiku Challenge 1


NEW! Word of the Day Haiku Challenge!

Some of you have expressed interest in participating in my weekly Word of the Day Haiku Challenge based on Dictionary.com’s Word of the Day. Back when I took the Blogging 101 Class this idea was born as a result of one of the assignments. I mentioned this new challenge in a “soft launch” on my Friday WOTD post (You can see it HERE.) PJ Priceless Joy gave it a go on Saturday! I would love to see a taker for each day of the week. Not only is it fun, but its a great way to learn new, interesting, and often rarely used words!

A (short) Week of Word of the Day Haiku


Internecine (Dictionary.com)
Polarized rivals
Engage in futile stances,
internecine wars
kat / like mercury colliding


Natter (Dictionary.com)
bitter natter
I should not let it matter
It drives me insane.
Priceless Joy / Beautiful Words

Thanks PJ! Hopefully we will have company next week! 🙂

If you’d like to join us here are the rules:

Word of the Day Haiku Challenge

1. Pick a day that works for you. Once you pick your day, stick to it. This is what makes it fun and quite a challenge.

2. Choose an online dictionary that features a word of the day. I use dictionary.com but there are others. Pick your go-to dictionary.

3. Create a Haiku using the word of the day. In this challenge, no synonyms allowed.

4. A Haiku is a three line poem with the syllable structures 3-5-3 or 5-7-5.

5. (Optional) If you want, you may also post a expanded history of the word, your thoughts about the word, or some unusual facts about the word of the day.

6. Post a link to your Haiku in the comments so I can find you.

7. I’ll post the weekly roll call list on Sunday. So you have until Saturday at midnight (EST) to post your haiku.

8. Have fun!

I’m renaming this weekly post Word of the Day Haiku. Hope to have at least one haiku for each day of the week. I’m looking forward to reading your Word of the Day Haiku!
