open windows
on a summer's day
the only words
I've heard my neighbour speak
'You've never loved me'

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
moon on the wane
the sound of wings
at dusk

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
finding it again
that still place
where it all begins

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
a wisp of cloud
losing itself in deep blue
tail end of a dream

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
the growing
impatience of the queen -
autumn deepens

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
city street
I fall into step
with a stranger

Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011
falling leaves more of the sky


Blithe Spirit Vol.21 No.4 December 2011


can't stop the evening colours fading

Nahaiwrimo - completed!

I did complete nahaiwrimo and wrote every day but I only posted the first few here then went over to just posting them on the Facebook nahaiwrimo site. I found the prompts, and the element of responding to them publicly within a short time, to be fun - occasionally maddening, and often challenging it's true - but always motivating. I'm not sure that would continue to be the case over a longer period though. Nahaiwrimo rolls on from month to month but I need to move on to other things.

I still haven't quite worked out what I want to do with this blog.

NaHaiWriMo #1 apple

ageing skin
the warmth and softness
of a baked apple

NaHaiWriMo x 2

I'm going to try to write a haiku a day for NaHaiWriMo and post it here on this blog. I'm also going to try to write something else (haiku, tanka, short poem) a day that I don't post. Even if I don't manage that every day it will be something to aim for and at the end I should have at least some work to send to journals that don't accept the previously blogged.

NaHaiWriMo

I might do NaHaiWriMo this year and post the haiku here. That should warm this cold soup up a bit.
