Easing my way back into writing with mindfulness, introspection, and writing challenges.
well done Maggie. I like how you have used the cult of Cybele in your haiku. I didn't know she was the base of Mother's Day, but I liked her story very much.
She's not the base of Mother's Day...just someone I could write about a mother to/for. Thank you for liking it. I can't do "Mother's Day".
drum me your heartbeatthat one line is a masterpieceall by itselfyou can do mother's dayi see the evidenceand it's beautifulCheers!JzB
When I first learned to drum (self-taught), it was suggested that the first rhythm we do is our heartbeat. That's where that comes from. Thanks so much for your wonderful comment, Jz! Made me smile.
I agree with JzB, that first line is excellent but very ably supported by the lines that follow.The sound of the heartbeat of someone we love, just can't be beaten ;)Mother's Day
Nor the last sentence of your comment (can be beaten), JRB :)
Wow, thank you both. I feel like I got this one right :))
Soul needs to be nurtured...and it is done the best and most precious way by someone who loves. Unconditionally. Beautiful, Maggie.
I do drumming also ~ not much lately but feel the energy of all when I drum ~ exquisite haiku ~ Happy Day ^_^
I am going to my drum circle in a few minutes....I will try to 'drum my heartbeat'..
Am wondering if you did and what it was like for you. When I went to my drumming circle we always started off with one person doing their heartbeat.
Drumming your heartbeat - sounds like a wonderful way to get in touch with the place within where you can become mother to yourself - a fine place to heal and be reborn! You go girl!!Humming
Self nurturing truly sucks when needed as opposed to an indulgence. But knew I had to learn to teach others as a therapist. Beautiful insight. Sometimes I forget. Thank you always for your lovely comments.
Great haiku, and I agree the drum is just excellentThe dishes
Thank you, Björn!
