S Haiku #atozchallenge

We raise our voices
Marrying words to music
In sadness or joy

Welcome back for another week in the A to Z Blog Challenge! Every day in April (except Sundays) is assigned a letter of the alphabet, and participants post blog entries related to that letter. My posts are haiku puzzles. A haiku is a tiny poem, three lines with 5/7/5 syllables on each line, and I’ve written a haiku that suggests a word starting with the letter of the day. Since the letter assigned for today is S, that means the little poem up above should suggest a word that begins with S. Actually, there are several versions of the word for today, all based on the same root, and they will all work. In fact, if you come up with a different S word that fits the poem, you still win! Once you have an answer, post it in the comments. I look forward to seeing your responses!

R Haiku #atozchallenge

Though we may complain
When water falls from the sky
Without it we’d die

We’re at the end of Week 3 of the A to Z Blog Challenge, and the letter of the day is R. That means my little poem should call to mind a word that starts with R. Can you figure out what it is? If so, drop the answer in the comments.

We take tomorrow off, but I’ll be back on Monday with a new puzzle for the letter S. Until then, if you want to see all my puzzle poems from the beginning of the challenge, click here to go back to the Letter A on April 1. Thanks for visiting!

Q Haiku #atozchallenge

When we need silence
And can’t allow any noise
Shh! Don’t make a sound

The letter of the day is Q in the A to Z Blog Challenge. That means I’ve got a word in mind that begins with Q, and written a haiku that suggests that word. Can you guess what I’m thinking of? If so, put it in the comments.
