haiku – flicker & eyes ~ 9/19/22

I loved the prompt words today. They reminded me of flashbulbs memories. We all have them. Some claim these memories are false. I’d like to think these memories are how we cope & make sense of things. Lord know I need help making sense of things. Life, it’s not for the faint of heart ❤ And now without further ado, my two cents worth 1/2 penny.

flickering memories

the light behind the lens

eyes filled with her tears

haiku – rolling & steady ~ 8/8/22

she remains steady

as rolling waves pound the surf

her heart keeping time

Written for Ronovan Writes #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge 422 ROLLING and Steady.

My heart is tender, a little worse for the wear but had I not tried, I’d always be wondering what if & if only. Sucks sometimes but I have also experienced pure joy because I have also experienced deep pain. Forever trying to get back there like an addict needing a fix. Only the drug is belonging.

As always, more to come.

haiku – sand & life ~ 8/1/22

life rolls you over

sand in the hourglass time

waiting for no one

The first thing I thought about when I read the prompt words was the song that follows. That’s Life ❤ by Frank Sinatra, Songwriters: Gordon Kelly L / Thompson Dean K. Life is doing that to me lately, kicking me in the teeth. But today is another day & I feel better. Not going to say I’m over my troubles yet because my acceptance is only going to happen once I’m dead, by default. Instead I’m living with the pain. Helps me see true joy though.

haiku – prize & wait ~ 7/25/22

for years I wondered

the prize just beyond my reach

was it worth the wait?

Okay, I’m not crying you’re crying. I’m sure many things are worth the wait but when one has an idealized notion of things, as I surely did, disappointment is inevitable as you learn the truth. Or the truth as you see it. Nobody likes me, everybody hates me, no wonder I was kicked to the curb.

I’ve always had a flare for the dramatic which means I could be making stuff up. I was so sure that knowing would make all my cares go away. I’d get a benefit long overdue. Instead I have more turmoil (self induced) & heart ache coming from unreciprocated love. My heart is bursting at the seams.
