TJ’s Household Haiku -Cut

A little tanka to start!

Wondered where he went
He took a week hiatus….
Computer issues!
But now TJ is back here
With a new prompt to tease us

The prompt word is …

Cut

I was inspired to write 3 haiku tonight. The first is associated with the photo TJ shared

Japanese Crests

Snip

Scissors snip paper
To create a masterpiece
Just open and see

The second inspired by my last week’s pursuits

Cut

As I decorate
My hard work is rewarded
With cuts on my hand

And a tanka about self-publishing

Profits – Tanka

Lining the pockets
Of the large conglomerates
To earn but a cut
Blood sweat and tears shed while writing
And self-publishing my book
