Admiral House Poetry

by Lindy

You can find poetry anywhere.  Here are some photos from my recent trip to Long Beach, Washington for my grandma’s 90th birthday. The guestbook in our rental home, “The Admiral House,” had some very creative entries.

One in particular stood out.  On the left page of the guestbook, some angry kid wrote “I hate this day!” This prompted another philosophical entry on the right page by a budding poet. (Perhaps who’d been smoking too much bud?)

Here was some whimsical art at the entrance of the rec room of the beach house to inspire creativity.

All beach houses need poetic wall art.

The natural beauty of Long Beach is enough to ignite the writer in anyone.

Definitely NOT Long Beach, CA – not a soul in sight.

I’m always a little homesick for Washington. Let’s write a poem about it, shall we? A Haiku would be fitting.

Submit your best Washington-inspired Haiku for judging in the comments section below.  Remember, a Haiku follows the 5-7-5 syllable pattern and is nature themed.  Submit your poem by midnight November 12th.  The winning poet will receive an autographed photo of Long Beach, WA and a personal letter drafted from my lovely typewriter, Beulah Hildegard Francis.


Our winner of the haiku contest is Hans Johannson from Fargo, North Dakota.  Hans, we’ll have that letter out to you right away.  Thank for your sharing your poetry with us.
