I put a challenge out this week for Day in a Sentence — use the poetic form of a haiku to reflect on your week. Here are the haikus that were submitted.

(Note: Day in a Sentence is now bi-monthly and Bonnie will be guest hosting in two weeks. We hope you can join us.)

Gail P. seeks some peace in the days of hectic energy.

WHIZZ! THE STREAK HAS BURST.
Thanks to all you Haiku-ians and see you in two weeks over at Digital Bonnie.
Peace (in three lines),
