30 Haikus in 30 Days: 29-30


What a month it has been! The 2014 November PAD Chapbook Challenge (via Poetic Asides) is officially over, but now a new challenge begins. The end-of-challenge competition involves whittling a collection of 30 poems down to 20 and organizing them into a chapbook.

My initial goal of completing 30 Haikus in 30 Days turned out to be easier than I anticipated – my muse was very inspired throughout November, (thank goodness!). When it was all said and done, I ended up with 45 haikus. Perhaps, the bigger challenge will be choosing only 20 to be part of the chapbook!

Prompt: Do it agin


As the waves arrive
water meets the shore in a crash
again and again


See Sunday Abroad, Bells

November 30, 2014
Prompt: Inevitable


Leaves change green to brow
pinecones drop from the branches
so it is to be

Life begins again
where autumn left its tidings
so it is to be


First snowflakes fly
the lake falls silent

    beautiful prose that truly captures the scene.. the concept of shattering .. in such a peaceful setting will have me meandering my inner psyche for weeks to come.. very interesting…

    A DEBATE — come on — I just learned how to spell Haikus last week.. now a debate.. I’m a little uncomfortable getting up and talking in front of a lot of people about such a new topic and it being so close to the holiday season.. hey wait.. this is ALL on line… NEVER MIND..
