Yes, indeed! April is National Poetry Month and I know just how to celebrate it — by playing Haikubes! 🙂
A few months ago I bought Haikubes while shopping for my children’s clothes. It was an adorable little box sitting all by itself on a clearance shelf of men’s ties, Paw Patrol socks, and scented lotions. It would’ve been a crime to have left it. So, here we are!
I tried finding suitable haikus about haikus, but some of them were rather naughty or crude!
