trying to find
my dreams and aspirations
I think I left my muse in the woods when I went for a walk this spring. I wrote a couple of haiku, so I know she was nearby, but then I haven’t been able to write anything since. Maybe her wings got stuck in a tree branch or a rose bush. I hope she gets free soon. I have been blogging for 6 years and I still have a lot of poetry from last year to show you. Stay tuned by following me on your favorite social media platform.
paper cuts at desk
or pricks from thorn bushes
in life you get cut
No matter where you are, where you work or live, you will face pain of some sort.
crawling to the edge
like a squirrel about to jump
trusting thin branches
This was written in response to a #haikuchallenge found on Twitter.
Squirrel nests high in the trees.
exquisite night for
a walk through the neighborhood
new summer old goals
I wrote this for #haikuchallenge on Twitter. I wrote it in Spring, but I am posting it on the first day of Summer. Do you have any old or new goals for the summer?
my childhood birthday parties

I can’t taste homemade icing without thinking of my Aunt Beckie.
everyone wants an
honest answer from us
as long as it’s nice
So this is not really haiku, and I almost erased it except that people on Twitter liked it so much. This may be senryu, but I think it’s a stretch. Read the definition for senryu on my What is Haiku? page and tell me what you think in the comments on this post.

through the many flowers
which party to attend
Remember to plant flowers that bees like to eat!
the frost kills it
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.

the only leaves in the tree
holding the baby
Just in case I get too busy today to post a haiku, I will post a haiku that I wrote in February 2015. But do check back for new haiku poem tonight. I wrote this while going to see my best friend’s baby.
