madame, thank you, I knew you could do it! I'll have to think long and hard about this. I think my brain is more suited to Sudoku, which you also taught me.

Judy, -- here are some old haiku, they're not all exactly in the 5-7-5 form, but lovely I think.

Clouds appear
and bring to men a chance to rest
from looking at the moon.

No one travels
Along this way but I,
This autumn evening.

You rice field maidens
The only thing not muddy
Are the songs you sing.

I kill an ant
and realize my three children
have been watching.

Fun to make irreverent modern silly ones too!

Many haikus on the 'net, ancient to yesterday! Here's one I made up for your party:

Snaggletoothed covens
Ripe for comeuppance. Snarky
Is as snarky does.

And a quote from Fran Lebowitz re her godchildren: "Always a godmother, never a God."

WHO the heck would ask Fran Lebowitz to guard their children's souls??

Cf. "Up for Grabs: Fifteen Boxes," in The New Yorker, July 31, 2006. The piece written for The Talk of the Town concerned a haiku contest, the prize being boxes for moving. Directions indicated that references to seasons are part of the tradition if not requisite. I never knew.

What fairy tales do you know that might fit the bill?

This porridge too hot,
This too cold: Why eat oatmeal
During a heat wave?

She brought a golden
Apple. "Here, Father." With my
Embrace, she gleams, lost.

By glass! Deign I kiss lips that
Taste of McIntosh?

House of straw, sticks, or
Even bricks won't keep me from
Eating prosciutto.

tomorrow is party night!

haikus aplenty have been typed ...will be placed around the house...

numerical pork
various haciendas
animal bad rap

I'll post some photos ....Siegfried's yellow brick road will be something to see Wink

Sophie will construct her gingerbread mansion tonight (complete with a tiny lightbulb inside courtesy of Sieg)

A couple of runthroughs of the Thumbelina story...

all finger food...fish cakes, Greek meatballs, nuts, small brownies, Toblerone truffles ~ 'n whatever else comes to mind...

the door will be open...all welcome...

how about pretending..and letting us know how you would come dressed...

this cyberspace thing can be rather fun!

hugs...
