I was browsing the web whilst trying to come up with some inspiration for a fun blog entry, something a little bit light hearted maybe or some theme that readers could follow on with on their own blogs.
I have looked at hundreds of pages. Then I stumbled across a site that had held a Haiku competition.
What's a Haiku I hear you ask? Well, I didn't know what it was, maybe I was just being a bit blonde!
Definition of a Haiku ~ a mini verse of 3 lines of 5/7/5 syllables.
Sounds easy enough I thought, so I decided I would give it a go. It really cannot be that difficult to write 17 syllables about a topic. It doesn't even have to rhyme.
How wrong can you be! 'Easy' would be to copy some of the entries from the competition and claim them as my own, but plagiarism isn't really my style, so I continue to sit here, trying to write 2 or 3 Haiku for your pleasure.
An hour has past since I began this entry and I have made some progress.
I thought it would be fun to try and cover different areas of my life and/or thoughts with each one. So after a little more effort, and a lot more thought, here are 5 little Haiku covering different aspects of my life.
PS - Does anyone have a spare delete key, I think this one's worn out!
Wake every morning
Wondering what thoughts to share
With my blogsphere friends
~My loves ...
Rough seas, tidal flows
White horses a crest the waves
Crashing on the shore
~... and my hates
The blue screen of death
Ate my entire life's work
Fresh page. Start again
~My past ...
Death. Dark. Depression.
Lost him, he's gone forever
Sad thoughts, heavy heart.
~... and my future
Husband, Son, Daughters
Love and adore them always
They are my riches
Goodness, its harder than you think to write something meaningful with so few words!! I hope you enjoyed them. I know which one is my favourite, but that's for very personal reasons; which do you like, if any?
