While the cat’s away (Goff) the mice will play ( Yvette from Priorhouse Blog and Cindy from The Unique Times (mmmmuah).

I got this randomly from Yvette and I always love spontaneous fun, so I thought why not post a free form “Haiku”. As you may or may not notice, we generally follow the traditional rules of 1st line being 5 syllables, the 2nd line, 7 syllables and the 3rd line, 5 syllables but since since the master Haiku partner is on is on a hiatus, I thought heck, why not take poetic license. Besides, this might make him come back faster. We miss you Goff!

What is emojiku?

The emojiku came about byΒ Cindy GeorgakasΒ and Goff James playing emoji tennis in the WP comments box. It was a natural step to take it one stage further and develop from being just a fleeting form of discourse into something more poetically constructive.

An emojiku is a hybrid poetic form, and is similar in format to a haiku / senryΕ« or haiga.

In the case of an emojiku the source image is an emoji. The emojiku is made up of three different emoji. Each emoji being the inspiration for one line of the short poem.

The process of creating an emojiku begins by a blogger sending three different emoji to a fellow blogger.

The second blogger responds by writing their emojiku and forwarding it back to the original blogger; who, in turn responds by writing a counterpoint emojiku using the same emoji images.

Join in the emojiku fun and share 

To participate use the three emoji prompts  πŸŒŠ β˜€οΈ  πŸ‹  and place your response in My Comments Box

Please keep your prompt responses family-friendly. Disrespectful and inappropriate comments will not be responded to and removed immediately.

Remember Goff is on vacation so leave your responses in my box if you want to play. I only do this once a month on a Fri-Yay Funday! I’ll keep us free form for awhile.


It’s finally time to announce the winner of the book giveaway that I announced a little while ago!

It comes with Ollie… NOT! πŸ˜‚

Thanks to all of you for playing along to win the book. This number one best seller, Wounds I Healed: Poetry of Strong Woman on Amazon is getting rave reviews and written up in publications and I’m honored to be part of it. Congratulations to Daphny for winning the book giveaway, Daphny gave a resounding and compelling reason why she should win the book and never misses a social media post or comment on my blog. I really hope you love it as much as I did Daphny!

Have a wonderful Fri-Yay and weekending! I’d love to tell you we’re all moved in but well, we’re working on it. Seems to be the story of our lives.

Which part do you think is true?

  1. No workers showed up on Wed until 7 p.m. -11:00 p.m.
  2. The quartzite looks gorgeous
  3. The medicine cabinets are off center of the sink
  4. We don’t have electrical outlets working
  5. The plumber is scheduled to instal the toilet and fixtures today but they forgot to order the water heater. OOPS!

If you guessed all of the above..You are right!

Lord give me strength.

So we just stayed in bed a little longer today because it’s Fri-Yay and there’s no one better to snuggle with than Ollie!

You know the logo Ollie… Let’s do this but 1rst 5 more minutes of snuggling!

Love and Blessings,

πŸ’–

I dare you …. do something fun!

Cindy and Ollie

My husband was not happy because our contractor started our counters 10 days early and called me the night before. My husband told me I should be glad because contractors are never early. My dining room looked like a clip from the Hoarders show. All of my cabinets content were piled in the dining room. It is funny now, not then.

I guessed right. Sorry your sinks are not synced! Ollie acts just like smuttier Butter. He loves to cuddle any time, but especially in the early morning hours. Once he woke me by putting his paw on my closed eye. That was unnerving but sometimes I don’t even know he’s there.

We have one that’s been coming round. She sleeps on a an old remnant of wood near the construction site behind our house. It’s sad to me, but she’s completely wild and seems like she has no problem feeding herself. I’ve been supplying her water, in these 100 degree temps. I don’t know how else she’d survive.

Two more notes

1) if you link a post (and not the main blog) I would get a “ping”
But I would have dropped by to catch up and would have found this
2) I realize I didn’t follow the emojiku “suggested format” and so thanks for embracing my poem anyway!
For some reason I just thought it was a bit more free verse but with chosen emoji
Meat time I will try the suggested format
