Haiku 7

Favors and whispered

Agendas are not part of

My innocent heart


Getting weird vibes from people yesterday and I am confused as to the intention behind certain words and looks. I am an over analyzer so I can easily interpret words and action incorrectly. Photo by Luke Besley on Unsplash.

In other news, I have completed my haiku challenge! I am so happy to have this little collection of poems finished. My hope is to put together some sort of e-chapbook with original line drawings inspired by each piece. The goal would be to have this little chapbook finished by next week! I will keep you posted and let you know whats what! Thanks so much for following a long and enjoying these haikus!!

Haiku 6

Soft sleepy sunrise

Eyes pale pink and lavender

Hopeful bright conscious


Good morning world! I am seeing the first light of day when I post this poem. And I cannot help but admire the soft light of the morning. Photo by me.

Haiku 5

It was our song, that

Made me sing and dance to the

Beat of a new life


A new life where I can sing and dance freely without a care in the world with someone who wants a new life too. It is just a wish of mine, not yet a reality. Photo by Taylor Ann Wright on Unsplash.

Haiku 3

Gasping for; breathing

We collide, the galaxy

Heat, energy, love

 


Honestly, I am really enjoying this haiku “challenge”. Its got me thinking about words in a different way. Also it has come to my attention that I am really bad a counting syllables, so basically every word I double check.

Haiku 1

Tomorrow will run

Today, I will breathe boldly

What will the past hold?

 


I am challenging myself to write a haiku each day this week. Its just a way for me to spin different creative gears in my head and try to spice things up a little. And who doesn’t like spice? (Dune reference anyone?) Also, let’s see if I can actually pay attention and count syllables properly. Photo by Kristian Seedorff on Unsplash.

Wondering Somethings

Sitting here on this Saturday and sipping my coffee…

After another week, I feel as though I am left with more questions than answers. Instead of writing about what I learned, I think I just want to write my questions. Sometimes I don’t want answers, instead I want to ask and wonder, ponder and think. Hence this post.

There really isn’t a rhyme or reason to any of them but feel free to share your own questions along with mine.


When I wake up in the morning, why is there a tightness in my chest that doesn’t abate?

Will the fall time breeze make me happier than I am now?

Why have I waited so long to try and find a long lost love?

As I grow older, will I become wiser? Or do I have to develop my wisdom?

How will the children of the future view this past reality?

Is patience another word for laiziness?

Why is money so important even though it never brings me happiness?

Can I be brave enough to develop a passion into a career?
