One Deep Breath: Solitude

The theme at One Deep Breath this week is “Solitude.”
Here’s what Susan had to say about the theme: “At times we seek solitude. In traditional Japanese haiku, the poet often seeks to portray wabi-sabi which has many interpretations in Western culture. In general, the meaning implies beauty in imperfection, impermanence, and incompleteness. (see Wiki […]

One Deep Breath: Wickedly Musical

Over at One Deep Breath, the theme for the past week has been “The Sound of Music” and we’ve been urged to write and post a haiku about the role of music in our lives. I know it’s time for a new prompt, this being Sunday, but I thought I’d post something at the last […]

One Deep Breath: A Coffee Fib

The theme at One Deep Breath this week is “Coffee and Tea” and rather than a traditional haiku, I decided to write a Fib.
Tall,

I’m Baaa-aaack! (Also -One Deep Breath: The Garden)

Haiku: Pathways

I just popped over to see what the prompt is this week at One Deep Breath and found out the theme is “Pathways.” Cool! I took a photo just a few days ago that fits that theme and it made me think of a Haiku. So here we go.
My shadow rushes
ahead, eager to reach the
path. […]

Seeking: One Full Moon

This may seem like an odd day to do a TwoFer blog post, considering how loooooong (but I hope entertaining!) my painting post ended up. But I’m going to do the TwoFer anyway because I woke up this morning with a Haiku in my head and I’ve really gotta get that thing outta there before […]

Random Items from the Junk Drawer of my Mind #19

1. I finished Dean Koontz’s latest book, “The Husband.” I liked it! He does some books that have a sort of paranormal twist and some that are straightforward suspense novels. This was one of the latter. I don’t want to say much, since this is a Spoiler-free Zone, but I thought it was very good. […]
