Haiku Daily Challenge #19 - Debris

I've been absent for a few days... and now, I am back. Relieved and grateful.


Pale splinters, sawdust
hopeful cedar entrails

Daily Haiku Challenge: Love... In the Name of....

flames flicker in shapes
we elect to see meaning
does that hand say stop?

(because I refuse to be predictable)
This prompt is from the Daily Haiku Challenge.
Won't you join the haiku writing fun?

Daily Haiku Challenge: Day 9 - 21 Years Old

I'll never know if
Her laugh would lilt, scrape or lift
Born into silence

My daughter, Marlena, would be 21 years old today.
She died at birth.

The Daily Haiku Challenge: Day 7 ~ Anger

Anger knows him well
Daily frustration sandwich
He can't put in words...

Emotions are challenging for children on the autistic spectrum. This season has been exceptionally trying for my son. Praying he moves through this quickly. 

Join us for the Daily Haiku Challenge in February!

Amused by February's Sunrises

Small stone month is complete YET I have to continue sharing stones because... it was what I did before Small Stone month and... it is what I will continue to do.

One of my favored methods of "small stoning" was to write the sunrise and the sunset. Here in Bakersfield in January we had a true "I can see you sunrise" once or twice at best. Otherwise, I was left to be ultra creative with my stones.

February began with a bold "Ta-Da! I am here in all my rosy glory!"

So here are my first two sunrise stones for February:

February 1:
Ribbons of pink and gold sprint in the early morning light while the neighboring mountains applaud.

February 2:
Rose blush flirts with the morning star ~ Prelude to blasts of orange and gold now appearing ~ sun shows his peacock wings

Happy February, Friends!
