K Haiku #atozchallenge


When it’s windy out

the sky has spots of color

trailing twisted tails

Ready for another puzzle haiku? What word beginning with K does this little poem refer to? (Bonus points if you can sing the song from Mary Poppins.) Figure it out? Give us the answer in the comments!

J Haiku #atozchallenge


In a kitchen drawer

in the basement, the garage—

on a Chinese sea?

Okay, this one’s going to be a challenge, because the J word the haiku refers to is actually two different words. They’re spelled alike and pronounced alike, but mean two different things. Can you find the word (or words, depending on how you look at it) that describes both that stuff in your basement and something on a Chinese sea? If you can, you’ve got it! Tell us in the comments.

I Haiku #atozchallenge

IA magic metal—

hot, it wipes away wrinkles

cold, it wards demons

Welcome back to the A to Z Haiku Puzzle after our one-day Sunday break. Today’s haiku refers to an actual metal, and remember that the letter of the day for today is I. I hope you are inclined to use your imagination, and that you have an inkling of an idea about today’s interesting puzzle!

D Haiku #atozchallenge


A twisted ladder

packed inside my cells, so small—

all that I might be

We’re back for the next haiku puzzle in the A to Z Blogging Challenge! Once again, identify the word that begins with the letter D that the haiku refers to . In this case, it’s not so much an actual word as an abbreviation, or maybe two separate words if you spell it out. Not that many people could spell it out correctly – bonus points if you can!

Here’s a hint, if you need it: you will want to put on your biology hat for this puzzle. Maybe even your molecular biology hat!
