TBD on Ning

Since my interest in the Haiku form arose out of my exploration of mindfulness, most of my efforts will somehow fall under that heading. So rather than try to force-fit them into previously existing discussions, I will start my own. I make no pretense now, of understanding the nuances of the form other than the 5/7/5 requirement, so I guess they will mostly be "basterdizations". So be it, sometimes the message trumps the format. That being said, I promise to take the time to at least try to understand the rules that I may be breaking. I will start by collecting here the few that have been offered elsewhere.

I agree on both points, PTB.

I had to laugh about the problems of ADD. Both my beloved and I have ADD, and one or the other of us would often break into whatever we were saying with a loud "SQUIRREL!!!"  ツ

Do not be afraid,

the world is waiting for you,

to dance all alone.

i've danced all alone
fearless in the face of death...
now i fear living

Early morning chill

The wind is playing in leaves

Autumn symphony.

Flowers still blooming

In a world of grief and pain

Even then, life shines.

Not seeing sunlight,

the winter camelia blooms.

Faith in the Cosmos.

"Down in depths unknown

I struggle to find the cause --

The thing that eats me."

To Be, or to Do?

Nobler to Stay, or to Act?

That is the question.

being is doing

a prince in peasant clothing

answers await all


elusive answers
ephemeral as blossoms
floating on the wind

a blue eyed farm boy

a tattered butterfly net

colorful answers

Beautiful, M!
