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.

You can follow me on Instagram and Twitter and Facebook.

Nest Haiku

nests in the fall,squirrel's nest,

squirrel’s nest
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.

Haiku in the Sunlight

sunlight falls on
half of the flowers
the nominated grow taller


I wanted to share some extra haiku and get you guys excited for National Haiku Writing Month. Are you going to share what you write every day this year? Where will you share it?

sunlight on flowers, sunlight on snow,sunshine on frozen plants,

Strong Haiku

little vine

twisting around itself
the tender moonflower vine
held up by its own strength



National Haiku Writing Month is on its way! Will you participate this year?

Haiku in my flowerbed.

in my flowerbed

I want some bleeding hearts

but no one listens to me


I could have sworn I already posted this haiku, but apparently not. I might start sharing Louis L’Amour’s poetry in March. He didn’t write a lot, but what he did write was great. Who wants to read some L’Amour?  Leave me a comment below!

Sturdy Haiku

tall flowers,dark red hollyhock,flowers with big leaves,

sturdy stalk of the
hollyhock holds red blossoms
I straighten my spine



It’s going to be a long week. But I will get through it. Just like I have gotten through other hard weeks.

My Poem for Day 9 #NaHaiWriMo

soaring high
but not too close to the sun
my wings are fake too

Today’s poem is about doubting yourself and feeling like even though things are going really well, it may all crash down at any moment. Are you writing for the prompts on Facebook?

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

If you are unsure of the rules/definition/form of haiku then please go to my What is Haiku? page. Also, make sure to check out the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. Today’s prompt is “zeppelin”.

Nice Things

click of the switch

glorious smells fill the house

my nose deserves nice things too

wickless candle, melted wax


Do you do small things to pamper yourself?

Summer Sun Haiku

sun, setting sun, beautiful sky, water tower, sun setting

sticky skin

mosquitoes buzz

summer sun sets



How was your summer?
