The exercise:

On this 800th day in a row of Daily Writing Practice, write two classified ads - in haiku. They can be related or not, up to you.

I was trying to figure out what inspired this and then I remembered reading this. So, there you go: credit where credit is due and all that good stuff.

Mine:

Lost: My creative
spark, my well of ideas.
Please help this author!

Found: A voice inside
my head that for the love of
God WON'T STOP TALKING!

Yay for 800 days! And let's raise a toast to 800 more :)

I like your second haiku better, but it's a photo-finish between them really.

Classified ads

For sale: acid bath,
One previous occupant.
Almost good as new.

----

You: one leg, no nose;
We met in a subway car.
You stole my black coat.

Pure bred, parents on site, first

Greg - 'almost as good as new' - ha!

Morganna - I'm in need of the first and would buy the second, so I have no complaints about either of yours :)

Zhongming - thanks! And your first one made me want to go wander through the nearest used book store... that usually spells trouble for my wallet!
