DMC: "something strange inside" by Catherine Johnson

something strange inside
the dishwasher is groaning
it's not the dishes.

Bob Raczka has challenged us to write a monster-inspired haiku this month.  Click HERE for details.

To add your haiku to the monster mayhem, send it to TodaysLittleDitty (at) gmail (dot) com, or use the contact form in the sidebar to the right. All submissions will be included in the wrap-up celebration this Friday, November 28th, and one lucky participant will win a personalized copy of Bob's delightful new haiku collection:


  1. Hahaha... I can only imagine - sounds much more scary than dirty dishes! :0!
    Great image, Catherine.

  2. You must have visited my kitchen, Catherine--our ancient dishwasher makes terrifying sounds! Wonderful haiku.

  3. Cheers ladies and thanks Michelle! Ours is definitely inspiration.

  4. Ours groans so loud, we run it at 2 am with all the doors shut! We thought it was just on it's last legs, but now I'm wondering how many legs it actually has! Great job, Catherine.

  5. Oh my gosh, Catherine...I absolutely love this. :) I've had dishwashers that groan and moan...never thought a monster was stuck in there...but you never know. :)
