I decided to write a poem today.  I actually wrote three haiku’s and I couldn’t decided if I liked any of them, so I put them together and they sort of work.  I think.

You live in my heart.
You fill it with dreams and love.
Til’ death do us part.
You live in my heart.
You protect it. You guard it.
Then tear it apart.
You live in my heart.
Together or miles apart.
Where you end, I start.

This is my 3rd installment of what was Haiku Monday.  Now it’s just Poetry Monday.  Hey, it’s a fucking miracle I’ve even kept it up three weeks.  Technically, this is a Haiku.

This is probably one of my favorites.  I remember just opening a blank email in Outlook and writing the first thing that came to mind.   If you follow me on Twitter and stalked by page, you may have seen this pinned to the top for the last year.

Whispers from my muse.

Feel free to share with the world.

During the writing process there are days when you just can’t get anything done.

You  need inspiration.

I did what all writers do in this situation – I logged onto to Twitter and cruised the #amwriting tweets.  This is where I discovered Haiku Monday (or was it Tuesday?).

I wrote this haiku:

“Paragraph or verse.
I string together my words.
Meaningful and terse.”

Then I started to write haiku as my main character.  It was a fun way to get inside her head.  Or just another way to waste time.  A little of both.

I’m going to start my own version of Haiku Monday with poems (not all Haiku’s) I wrote from Dani’s point of view.  Here is my first one.  Please feel free to share.  🙂


In case you’re wondering what the hell a Haiku is…..

Haiku (hi-koo) – a Japanese poem of seventeen syllables, in three lines of five, seven, and five, traditionally evoking images of the natural world.

I dare you to write one of your own.  Right Now.  And Post it to me on Facebook or Twitter.  Or leave a comment below.

Peace. Love. Haiku.
