Composed In Love

In Response To:

Ragtag Daily Prompt – Sangfroid

Your Daily Word Prompt – Lapse – January 14, 2021

With a lapse in composure

many things can be 

said and done that can

cut deep into the soul of

a fellow human being

leaving them broken and

feeling like they are worthless…

Let us be composed in Love

knowing we are all

precious and valued creations

of God

always conveying this truth 

to others in words and

most importantly…

actions

To Weep Words – Tanka

Written In Response To:

Frank J. Tassone Haikai Challenge # 85 (5/12/19):  rainy season (tsuyu) – This week, therefore, our kigo is rainy season (tsuyu). Write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to rainy season (tsuyu).

Have you ever woken up early on an autumn morning? Creeping downstairs as quiet as humanly possibly in order to keep the peace? After you brew a pot of coffee, you sit on a window seat and gaze through the glass, admiring the foggy stillness. The red and yellow leaves blanket the ground, while others hang precariously off of a young maple. Taking small sips from the bitterness in your cup, you realize; this is autumn- the rawest season of all.

raindrops on window

remind me of my own tears

souls rainy season

precious gift to weep words

heart is unable to speak
