    Writing down haiku,

    Finding words to match my thoughts

    Joins me to the world.

    Leaves fall from the trees.

    Branches wrap in winter wealth:

    Diamonds and fine lace.

    I am here, and now

    I am so fiercely living

    In the here and now.

    Tick tock. My life clock

    seems much faster to me now.

    And louder. TICK TOCK!

    Welcome Abracadabra! Glad to see soneone posting!

    Words on paper sing

    When thoughts are captured quickly

    No time for critique

    Oh my painful back

    clearly a pain in the butt

    My bad attitude

    Swallow poison? I think not!

    Need psychiatrist

    ......


    By poison I mean

    Nasty drug prescribed to me

    Where's the right choice here

    happy comfort dog

    stays by my side when needed

    long walk tomorrow

    It's late. I can't sleep.

    Too hot. Too cold. Too worried.

    Why is sleep so hard?

    Thanks for the welcome Moonflwr912, and thanks for starting this thread. I'd heard of haiku before but didn't know the structure ... this is a fun place to try it out.

    Spider on ceiling.

    Science knows how you cling there.

    It's magic to me.

    Dust motes in the air

    Dance and float in golden light

    Then they disappear.

    To swallow poison

    Knowing it might only help

    Requires much strength

    when cancer arrived

    the first time staggered me

    how about next time

    I am ER plus,

    so A.I.'s are my future?

    I can live with that.

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    *Note: In this case, A.I. is short for Aromatase Inhibitor, not Artificial Intelligence (which is also probably part of the future, but that's another haiku!)

    I'm an old-timer so remember when ER stood for Emergency Room; and like you think of A.I. as Artificial Intelligence. Oh! now that part of days gone by was good.

    love research studies

    agreeing with my beliefs

    cocktail for my pain

    The absence of pain:

    clear thought, movement, well being;

    presence in your life.

    Careful with Advil

    Settle for new normal low

    Just take the edge off

    Still too many things

    Going wrong and needing work

    But, I guess, "That's Life"!

  • Sara536
    Sara536 Member Posts: 5,937

    I'm used to thinking

    it's my fault when things go wrong

    'snot good to go there

    I long to roll up

    in a nice warm ball

    and wake up rested

    starting something new

    how dreadful and delightful

    would a (((hug))) help you

  • Sara536
    Sara536 Member Posts: 5,937

    Just in case it does,

    Here is a hug from me too

    What an adventure

    on my face. Work was fine, your

    haikus made my day!
