Daily Haiku Challenge - Day 8: The Day Before

This poem comes from the inspiration from a photo image offered by the Daily Haiku Challenge.  Why not join us in haiku today?

Before the shock came
My heartbeat mimicking yours ~
Those last lilting steps

Join the challenge today :-)


  1. Last lilting steps? OMG, sad...

    Someone is Special

  2. Yes, a step as a lilting one. It was, I think, my last girlhood steps. I never knew until I wrote this haiku that on this day, 21 years ago, I took my last steps as a girl.

  3. Oh shock! I recently became schooled in shock and I can say that you nailed it here!

  4. I was thinking of the shock of cold water...here, in the Pac NW, the Pacific Ocean gets to be a balmy 55 degrees F or so. It is a shock. Looks so inviting.

  5. I understand the sentiment completely. Thank you for sharing!

  6. just read your reply to SiS and your haiku suddenly took a different meaning to me. made me reminisce and the memory made me smile... beautiful haiku!
