Wait...what do you mean it needs some editing?????

No, I disagree...I really think the words, "severed head" work in this poem.

Yeah, well, thanks for your suggestions. Let me think about them; NO.

I do believe I'm entitled to a nap after an exhausting session ripping my poem apart..

This is Eli. Pronounced eeee-lye.

Hi there!¬† Welcome to RuffDrafts.com–I’m glad you’re here!

My original poems, posted each day of National Poetry Month 2013, are imperfect. Messy.¬† This is your chance to sneak a peek behind the scenes—before a poem is polished and published! (For my poems in 2010, 2011 & 2012, click on the Poetry link in the menu above.)

My friend Bruce Balan and I critique each other‚Äôs poems every day…so you’ll see Bruce’s comments on some of the poems.

Thanks for following so well.¬† I’m tempted to take you to the dog park and let you romp off-leash… Ready?¬† Let’s begin!

DOG PARK HAIKU


DOG PARK HAIKU ~ rough draft
by April Halprin Wayland

Warmth on my leg‚ÄĒthe
first sign of spring: a puppy
peeing on my pants.

                                                               Spring at the dog park!
