Day 22 NaHaiWriMo 2017

the veins in her hand

carrying lifeblood and grace

withered maple leaf

 

Today’s prompt was “leaf” Did you write anything for it?

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…

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.

NaHaiWriMo Day 1 My Poem

anticipating the sting
having to touch the cabinet
work day in winter

Hey guys, I hope you remembered what starts today and I hope you are able to write your own haiku poem for the first day of National Haiku Writing Month. 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 meet to get a prompt and share our work. Today’s prompt is “zap”.

To make this easier on myself, I think I will use 1 image for this week, and then I will pick a different image to use for all of my posts next week. If I am going to share my poetry with you every day I will have to streamline things, and I want to share my haiku with you every day this month. I may end up skipping writing a post on Saturdays and Sundays, and posting all three on Monday, but I will try to make a short post every day. Today’s is long because I like to explain things fully.

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 bloggers’ 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 any poets that you like and check the hashtag #NaHaiWriMo on Twitter and Facebook.

This also wraps up the third I Doodle, You ‘Ku. This year was a bit bumpy and appreciate everyone that stuck through it with me and jumped in toward the end. Would love to hear what people thought, especially thinking about how the doodles differed from the last two years. Did they make you write differently in any way? What were your favorites?

I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2014 – 05

This is a “small stones” poem, which is a type of poetry that is similar to haiku.

the moon
my only company
because second hand smoke
cant reach
that far

Yay Words!

I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2014 – 13

There is always a proper way to do things. I would love to learn the tea ceremony.

I consider
myself a lady
but I do not
even know
how to pour tea

Yay Words!

I Doodle, You ‘Ku 2014 – 03

I have found a poetry challenge by Aubrie Cox and have decided to post my poems today. This challenge runs throughout all of March- she puts up a doodle and you respond with a poem. Here is my response to day 3:

white rabbit
on white snow
deep winter

Yay Words!

This is a temp version of the doodle from my phone. I’ll scan when I get home. My apologies for the lateness! Things should be more regular from here on out.

Everyone seemed to like mobile version, so I’ll leave it up. Below is the scanned, unedited version.
