birds from the Graphics Fairy
I grasp at warm air
unable to hold it
gray bird wings
This was written for a #haikuchallenge prompt on Twitter. It is easier to post every day of the week when I don’t try to add a story or thought to my posts. Leave me a comment and tell me if you like blogs that add stories to their poems, or if you like it when just the poem is posted. All of the statistics say that our posts should be over 500 words long and have at least 1 image if not 3. As a reader, what are your thoughts?
graduation and birthday parties to plan –
the creeks flood
I wrote this for #Haikuchallenge on Twitter. I have been trying to write 1 line haiku, but it is really hard to write one that looks right.
people act like animals
but pretend they’re better
Yesterday’s prompt was “human nature.” How do you think I did?

how the lioness
holds her cub in her mouth
a mother’s embrace
for the butterfly and moth
holding son’s candy
Today’s prompt was “hand” and I wasn’t happy with my first poem which is the one about holding my son’s candy. So I tried to think about how you use your hands in different ways. I somehow got to thinking about how moms judge each other and they forget that each kid is different and what would be terrible for your kid, my kid might actually enjoy. Did that come through at all? How am I doing so far this year?

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.
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.

call me a zealot
the flower does not bloom
unless it worships the sun

Even if you don’t write haiku, or even if it isn’t your favorite type of poetry, please consider sharing your friends and favorite blogger’s 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 me and any other poets that you like and check out the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo on Twitter.
