Valentine's Erotica, VDay Hate Contest

Dear Silliest of the Sweet Sillies,

Happy February! We like to celebrate the month with a contest. You're challenged to create an offering that bashes the commercialized, yucky, sticky, sappy, misguided fantasy "romantic love is all you need" and blah, blah, yada yada Valentine's lovers' nausea. 

This year, your challenge is to submit a Haiku: Three lines that consist of 5 syllables in line one, 7 syllables in line two, and 5 syllables in line three. You'll vote on the winner, and that lucky person shall receive a very sweet package in the mail. 

Simply leave your haiku in the comments section. Please, only one entry per person, and admissions will be accepted through Sunday 2/11 at midnight, PST. 

Also, I'm so, so close to becoming a millionaire! Less than 10,000 page views to go. Woohoo!  It's unbelievable and will merit hearty celebrations.  

I look forward to seeing your entries. 

Another note: I loved Wonka and may even see it again. Timothee Chalamet brought to the screen a remarkably charming portrayal of young Wonka. Highly recommend. 

Love you, my Sweet Sillies. 


  1. Everyone says Wonka is really good.
    Will think on my entry and be back!

  2. Loved Wonka! Chalamet did a wonderful job.
    I'm also going to have to think a minute and come back.

  3. Some masterful hyphenations in your new poem, Robyn! LOL! Looking forward to reading everyone's Valentine haikus!

  4. Roses are nice,
    Violets are fine,
    I’ll be the six,
    If you be the nine. Haiku!

    1. Mike, it's great. It doesn't follow the rules for haiku, but so far you're in the lead. Thank you!

  5. Love the strategic hyphenating! ☺ Sounds like a fun contest, Robyn.

  6. Haiku :
    Slurped some bad oysters
    Conjured past V dates with you
    Washed down with champagne

  7. I would love to hear you read some of these at an open mic!

    1. Thanks, Diane. It's so fun - very different from reading it on paper. I'm going to work on recording and sharing more of this here.

  8. Bring on more haikus, my Sillies. Let's see whatcha got.
