Dictionary Word of the Day Haiku Challenge 2

Hey peeps! I know the words this week were crazy…words like rupestrine or florilegium or rodomontade (wow!)

But gee, I was hoping someone would take the challenge! At any rate, we have Friday! And I actually did have company on Friday! Shout out to my friend Kathryn from anotherfoodieblogger! Give her awesome blog a peek! 😊

AND…an UPDATE! We have Thursday as well thanks to Priceless Joy (PJ) from beautifulwords. Be sure to visit her other blog/challenge, Flash Fiction for Aspiring Writers challenge and give it a try!

Here’s…a look back at THURSDAY and Friday!

Thursday’s Word: Florilegium from dictionary.com – a collection of literary pieces; anthology.

my heart is content

Friday’s Word: Factotum from dictionary.com – a person, as a handyman or servant, employed to do all kinds of workaround the house; any employee or official having many different responsibilities.

They cook, clean, parent
unsung, unpaid factotums
also called “Mothers”!

Admins do-it-all!
They are office factotums
“Duties as assigned.”

When something breaks down
call a handy factotum
a hero with tools

If you would like to join us this week, here are the rules! Come join us. It’s exciting and best of all fun! 😊

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!
