    Like a Warm Sweater

    The haiku provides you with a specific form. The Poster Project provides you with the direction and theme. It’s the writer’s role to respond to an inspiration they may feel.

    This triad works well for me. It’s also short and sweet and requires an almost game-like review in counting syllables.
    My inspiration came when I went to Armory Square to pick up stretch bread at Pastas Daily Bread.

    It’s always a special treat and something to share at family celebrations. Getting bread is a joyful experience tied to other joyful ones. I wanted this haiku to be full of joy!
