6 Years of Blogging

Today is my blogging anniversary. I’ve been chasing this lifestyle for 6 years now. I have enjoyed it and I plan to continue. Life has not gone where I wanted it to, and I’ve been hit with quite a few sad surprises that have affected my writing this last year. Depression wants to creep in and take over, but I am finding ways to combat that. Surprisingly this time around, writing has not been my main outlet. Prayer and meditation have been. Prayer has always been a part of my life, but rarely the main part. For the last year, daily prayer (as in Quiet Time that lasts for an hour or more) and reading Christian self-help inspirational books, and caring for my son (of course!) has been my main focus. But I am writing here and there.
The haiku above is one of my newest. I hope to start writing more regularly soon. I plan to blog more than once a week from here on out. Thanks for reading, and leaving me such great comments! I hope you all are writing regularly and are brave enough to share it.

sunlight so bright in our eyes

This was written for a National Haiku Writing Month prompt on Facebook. I don’t know why I haven’t shared it yet.

First Snow Haiku

snowfall,snowing,snow,
first snow fall
adults sigh
children shout

I forgot to post this at the first snowfall in my area because I was at work and it only snowed for like 10 minutes before it switched back into rain. I hope you can enjoy it today!

Dripping Haiku

drip drop drop

quickly becomes a roar

summer rain

 

How is your summer going? Are you getting enough rain, too much? How are your flowers and animals doing?

no paper in my pocket
we sail a stick instead
