Y is for Yeti

Yeti:  A yeti is a mythical creature that’s said to live in the Himalayan mountains. Another name for a yeti is “abominable snowman”.

The faes bestowed gifts 
upon my birth: long, smooth hair, 
deep, expressive eyes; 

Tall and powerful, 
you will get notoriety. 
all around the world.

A wicked fairy smirked 
although all that will be true,
you´ll be called Yeti.

This is my Spanish haiku counterpart: Y de Yeti. Why, do you ask? My wonderful crew, #NaNoTribuMX started a micro stories challenge in Spanish this month. (We´re still voting the words we will use this month).

The team’s theme of the April Blogging from A to Z Challenge this year is:
ACCOMPLISHING YOUR DREAMS, AND THE DUALITY OF 22; to see all cool bloggers participating this challenge, you can click on the Master List of #AtoZChallenge.

Senryu 25 of 26 I´ll be doing this April to participate in #AtoZChallenge, #NaPoWriMo and #CampNaNoWriMo. Did you like it? Don´t be shy, leave a comment. I´d love if you add a blog hop so I can visit your post, too.

Today´s NaPoWriMo prompt: In certain versions of the classic fairytale Sleeping Beauty, various fairies or witches are invited to a princess’s christening, and bring her gifts. One fairy/witch, however, is not invited, and in revenge for the insult, lays a curse on the princess. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a poem in which you muse on the gifts you received at birth — whether they are actual presents, like a teddy bear, or talents – like a good singing voice – or circumstances – like a kind older brother, as well as a “curse” you’ve lived with (your grandmother’s insistence on giving you a new and completely creepy porcelain doll for every birthday, a bad singing voice, etc.). I hope you find this to be an inspiring avenue for poetic and self-exploration.

If you are participating on these challenges, I wish you good luck and lots of success. 😀
