Day 24 NaHaiWriMo 2017

flower bud

the frost kills it

hope delayed

 
Today’s prompt was “in short” and we were supposed to write a minimal haiku. I can do sad well, so I did a short haiku about being sad. My hormones are messed up right now and the dreary days make me sad.

biting blindly
people act like animals
but pretend they’re better

the veins in her hand

Day 21 NaHaiWriMo 2017

we wish on dying stars

and tell the children they will bring us luck

the rabbit shakes his head

 

Today’s prompt was “falling.” I didn’t want to use the word in my poem, so I wrote this. It is too long to be a proper haiku, but do remember what the name of this blog is…

ripe strawberries
the tart taste of summer
tall girl child

 

Today’s prompt is “nature” but something unique to your region. I tried and tried to think of something but couldn’t think of anything that was worthy of a haiku. So I wrote about my family picking fresh produce in our own gardens and how many of us are redheads.

Day 19 NaHaiWriMo 2017

cherry blossoms

trying to beat the squirrels

to the fruit this spring

 

Today’s prompt was “cherry blossom” and I was thinking about when my mom had a cherry tree. She always tried to get enough cherries for one pie. But it was hard because she had a lot of squirrels and they would eat the cherries as soon as they turned ripe.

ducks floating on top

of the pond above the mud

I must learn how

 

Today’s prompt is “nature” but we had to write about a season that we are not in. I wrote about summer.

Day 17

the night dark and cold

but she rises anyway

full moon shines brightly

Today’s prompt was “moon”. I have written so many moon haiku, but tried to give it one more shot for today’s challenge. This poem is about perseverance.

Day 16 NaHaiWriMo 2017

my path to joy

swallows dipping in the sky

never a straight line

  

Today’s prompt was to write about something in nature. I had the image of swallows in my head and wanted to write about that. What do you think?

Day 15 NaHaiWriMo 2017

returning to joy

deadheading brings twice the blooms

guiding my flowers

Today’s prompt was “returning to”. I am consciously trying to be joyful and joy-filled this year. I also try to get two blooms out of my flowers when I can.

Day 14 NaHaiWriMo 2017

a wild rose

grafted to make it stronger

the way of Christ

Today’s prompt was “a way of” I changed “a” to “the” and wrote about the greatest love we will ever know. Christ hung on a cross for us. In doing that He made a way for us; now you don’t have to be Jewish to be a part of God’s family. Once you accept that Christ died for you then you become grafted into the family of God.

And if the people of Israel turn from their unbelief, they will be grafted in again, for God has the power to graft them back into the tree. You, by nature, were a branch cut from a wild olive tree. So if God was willing to do something contrary to nature by grafting you into his cultivated tree, he will be far more eager to graft the original branches back into the tree where they belong.  Romans 11:23-24 NLT
