NaHaiWriMo #29 & #28

prompt: leap day / year

leap day -
on my way back
the busker still silent

and this concludes my NaHaiWriMo contributions for Feb 2012. Prompts continue all year but February is the main month. I may still pop in and out over the year.

The prompt for #28 was to rewrite a computer generated haiku into a passable haiku / senryu. I've had a go, but it isn't great ...

generated "haiku":

rumbling echo gnaws
icicle quarrels hotly
hotly lame

my rewrite:

woken by hunger
I trip down the stairs -
an ice pack from the fridge
to my knee
