Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
There is something haunting about this set.
there is a mystery behind the words / the wordsmith alone knows
Thank goodness haiku was meant for the reader to interpret. Thank you both for reading and taking time to comment. Just want to say to all Carpe Diem friends that next month I am going on a spirit/vision quest of sorts in hopes of taking my long years of healing to a kind of conclusion. But purging the yuck thoughts and feelings, that I thought would happen on that journey, seems to be happening now with my words. And I feel like my words (even when disguised) need a witness. I hope you will be my witness even if my haiku is not so pretty for a bit.
So much pain! Writing out the pain can be so purifying, therapeutic even! Keep writing and one day all the yuck will be gone and you can see something else to write about! Peace. Enjoy your journey! Your link at Haiku Heights isn't working!Reflection
Your words brought happy tears of understanding and acceptance to my eyes. Thank you for your very kind and supportive words ♥
Awesome series haiku Maggie. Soemthing in this haiku gives me the shivers, but I also sense a deeper understanding of the way you write your haiku. Very strong spiritual being you are I think. Wish you a great Vision Quest and the Power of the Divine Energy which is all around us.
Thank you, Kristjaan. Yes, very spiritual and embracing of life's energy and other invisible forces that guide us. I'm really looking forward to next month's journey...wherever it might take me.
From where I sit you are very much alive and kicking Grace. A powerful and haunting story, the telling of which takes to ever closer to your chosen destination methinks. Bravo :)
Thanks, jrb. Means a lot.
exquisite set... made my spine tingle. but humming beneath the haunting tone, i believe, is a feeling love and a sense of acceptance and healing even
Thank you, kz. Have been healing for years but coming to a kind of new awakening perhaps. Time to live life. That's my objective.
Having read some of your other stories... I lay a puzzle of a past that no-one should have. I can feel though in your word that this is the best therapy. Healing will come.
No one should have ever. Gosh that made me cry to type. But it still goes on. My journey has led me to haiku and now this vision quest. Haiku is not just a stepping stone though. I realize it is a part of me. Thank you for your words and caring. Something good is coming :))
