high tea – NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo Challenge Day 9

high tea

silver teapot
scalding vapor squealing

jasmine leaves
raw honey sweetened

sandwiches stacked
atop plated doilies

creamed cheese
dill dappled dainties

biscuits, cookies
to the bourgeois

tongues wagging,
who’s doing who

when? how?
more, do tell

raise your pinky
sip, don’t slurp


For today’s NaPoWriMo/GloPoWriMo Challenge Prompt: the hay(na)ku (I decided to do the sonnet variation). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem. For example, you could write a hay(na)ku sonnet, like the one that Vince Gotera wrote back during NaPoWriMo 2012!
