100 followers competition..........!

By way of celebrating acquiring my 100th follower, here is a thought-provoking competition, open to all Tales from a Toymaker followers.

I've been playing around with haiku poems lately, which are great fun, so all you have to do is compose a haiku and leave it as a comment.

No specific theme.... it can be about anything - blogging, miniatures, the weather.......whatever you like.

For non-haiku enthusiasts, the haiku format consists of just three lines.

first line, 5 syllables
second line, 7 syllables
third line, 5 syllables

For example,

Wonderful small dog,
chrysanthemum head of fur.
Daily you make me smile.

Simple eh? Go on......have a go.

I'll put all haiku-composer's names in a hat and draw the winner at random on 30th September.

And the prize....?

Congratulations on 100 followers! Here is my effort:

'Cute girl in purple
With ringlets coloured auburn
What a pretty smile!'

A pretty dolly

Sandra, I'll try but remember English is not my mother language and I'm not sure how to divide the syllables.Please, have mercy

Fairy mini child
by magic hands created
come to my home

And that's all I can do :o(((
Thank you for the chance of winning one of your beautiful dolls. Rosanna

A purple monster!
A purple monster, you said?
Yes, purple monster.

This haiku is in no way related to your doll. Yours is a purple angel :).

It's still very early in the morning but hey....here we go:

I must be mad but...here's my offering:

Small dog keeps her sane
Takes rather more really but
The small dog knows best

....and I'd really love the doll

Ok here's my attempt with the help of Small Dog of course.

Was a pretty doll
Lucy chewed it plenty though
Now it's rather broke!

In her beautifull pink dress
You made her with love
