One Single Impression
Prompt 274: Weak


Write a poem or prose using the given prompt.

strong mind weak body
sojourn led by guardian
to the ancient way

gentle spirit guides
with voices soft as whispers
offer sweet release

heart and mind unite
violet light from soul
honor the oneness


(The name of the statue above is "Changed Woman," which I thought appropriate for my journey and the prompt.)

  1. Nice write, Maggie. All your verses, setting, action, and end result, are proper for your desired message. I lke that message of finding ones self together, body, soul, and mind.

    That said, the middle verse 'clicks' with me. I can see you had a count problem but still it is soothing to read and think about.

    1. Thank you for visiting and your thoughtful comments. I must have been distracted and fixed the second haiku. I hope it still clicks for you.

    2. It sings now, Maggie!!! Really nice and means the same! :)
      (I didn't mean you had to fix it, I was just feeling bad with you.)

    1. Violet goes with the crown chakra and spirituality and I view my soul as connecting to that. It's also a very calming color. Glad you like it!
