Day 12 of NaHaiWriMo

the week of my birthday
Valentine’s Day

Sorry it’s late. I have had a crazy long week. I think I am going to have a fun weekend though. My post for tomorrow may be late too.

If you are unsure of the rules/definition/form of haiku then please go to my What is Haiku? page. Feel free to direct any friends there who may be unsure of what is happening in the poetry community this month.
Also, tell them to check out the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. Today’s prompt was “zeugma” (a Western term for a word that has a meaning with what comes before and after it).

Even if haiku isn’t your favorite type of poetry, please consider sharing my work this month. It is getting harder and harder to share on social media as all of the sites like Facebook now hide your posts in hopes that you will pay to make them appear. So please subscribe to and follow me, and any other poets that you like, and check out the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo on Twitter and Facebook.

FF Story | Standing Tall

Friday Fictioneers is a group of bloggers that write 100-word stories after being inspired by a photo posted by Rochelle Wisoff-Fields. We are allowed to use the photo in our post and encouraged to leave each other comments. I always appreciate anyone who takes the time to leave me a comment. I write my story before I read any of the other writers creations. I wrote my story in 101 words this week.

  Standing Tall

She stood there determined to hold her head high.

They would not make her bow.

She had come so far. Long nights in a fast food kitchen that made her skin break out. Early mornings rushing to class with no make-up on, her hair barely combed. She would not be made to doubt herself. She had been beaten into a strong woman who knew not to blink when questioned.

She had not been embezzling and she would not take the rap for it.

She would stick to her story and when it was all over, she would take her boss’ place.

The Quote

That which does not kill us makes us stronger.

-Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900)

 

You see this quote everywhere. I thought I would share with you the original.

Day 11 My Poem for #NaHaiWriMo

no zest, no flavor
not being able to 
scrape up happiness
 
This was written today. I know it’s a little heavy-handed, but it’s what I got. I may edit some of these later when I am not sick and have some time to think about them.

zero flowers
seen in the flowerbed
but the plants are there

My Poem for Day 9 #NaHaiWriMo

soaring high
but not too close to the sun
my wings are fake too

Today’s poem is about doubting yourself and feeling like even though things are going really well, it may all crash down at any moment. Are you writing for the prompts on Facebook?

Day 6 of NaHaiWriMo

movies with long skirts
longing for old fashion romance
forgetting life expectancy rates

I hope you have been able to write your own haiku poem for at least one day of National Haiku Writing Month. Feel free to share your poem in my comments section below! Today’s prompt is “zeitgeist” (the defining spirit or mood for a particular historical period or location). Once again I wrote a senryu, but at least I wrote something! I have never written a new haikuish poem for every day of February, I am hoping to do that this year.

Day 5

being last in line
the Zs hate alphabetizing
can’t we just line up

Hello and Thank You to all of my new followers. I am so glad to have you. When I get some time I will try to look at your blogs. I am now full-time at my job and so I don’t have as much time I as used to for blogging. That is probably part of the reason that I struggled to get a poem posted today. I also just found the prompt really hard. Today’s prompt was “zee” or “zed”.
