    1. Thank you so much Amanda! This was our last prompt and even though I was reading and trying to do a sonnet, my attention and brain power just could not di it..so I did this haiku instead. I wanted the haiku to embody the beauty of this weathered and wiser bloom.

    1. Thanks Siobhan! I was also thinking of the blossom as a a person…my rough draft of my failed sonnet (written minutes before this as a choice then I turned to haiku)..my original had the blossom as person…with veins and lifelines…

    1. Thank you Vidya.. My haiku (this) is still in the running..I am torn between submitting this poem, the one about the Idiom “A Penny for you…or my poem, In my Dreams…which should I choose???Thank you for your comment and advice.

  1. Beautifully written – some much content in so few words – the beauty of Haiku. I saw the flower representing an aging person so your message came through loud and clear! (Shhh-maybe that’s because I see this in myself)

    1. Thank you Wendy! And I am so glad that you were able to read so much into and about my haiku…the beauty f the written word…It is amazing how it reflects our perspective at different points in our lives…

  2. Thank you Cristy! I am leaning toward submitting this haiku. I was thinking my poem about the idiom “A penny for your thoughts” but the haiku is short and saves space in an anthology… It is a toss up between the two!

    1. Thank you so much! And, thank you for commenting and sharing such beautiful words. Yes, I think poetry therapy and really looking at our words (both written and spoken) could help to heal this world.

    1. Thank you so much! I am really beginning to love and appreciate the haiku as a form of writing. And thank you for enjoying this one! It is one of my personal favourites…my anthem of sorts through haiku!

    1. Thank you Daryl! I decided to go with my penny poem and In My Dreams instead but, this was in the running and made it a very hard choice. I am falling in love with Haikus and the different ones that you can do…I think I am going to be writing many traditional haikus in my future and monostitches two…a one line haiku… I still plan on publishing all of these poems…I had a good year this year and it was less stressful (movement wise) than others.
