Charming STAR IS BORN haiku, Clara! Hope you and yours are having a Happy Easter and/or Spring Holiday of Your Choice! :-)
The Hollywood Haiku contest sounds like fun; good luck to you! I can't think of a snappy haiku offhand, but years ago I whipped up this little limerick, for what it's worth... :-)In a film magazine readers’ poll,Folks suggested an Orson Welles role,’Twas quite hard to say, but: “A pudding!” cried they,“For his belly’s as round as a bowl!”
I like your haiku very much, Clara. Too bad there isn't a limerick contest -- Dorian would have a shot! I'd like to know more about the contest? Are you doing several haikus, or how does it work?
DorianTB: Thank you, hope you had a great day too! Oh, first time ever I hear about limerick being something else than an Irish city :) But I googled it, and yours is great! Thanks for sharing!ClassicBecky: Thanks for visiting :) About the contest, it's organized here:http://bestforfilm.com/film-blog/competition-hollywood-haikus/And it's open to everyone. I decided to post one a day, to have more opportunities to win and because I liked the idea :)
Oh my goodness--a haiku competition--are you serious? You are going to laugh when you see what I have pre-posted instead of links for the month of May. I've been planning it since January! This is a crazy coincidence. . .
By the way--your haiku is lovely. You really get the spirit of the movie :-)
Wow, it's Hollywood Haiku fever! On behalf of Team Bartilucci, I've come up with a haiku, too. It's posted on my TALES OF THE EASILY DISTRACTED blog post -- and here, too, for your convenience! :-)SUNSET BOULEVARDI'm still a big starIt's the pictures that got smallFace-down in the poolGood luck, everybody!
Clara, Becky, thanks ever so much for your nice words about my Orson Welles limerick! :-) You gals are the best!
