Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

An Existential Trilogy: Haiku In Three Parts

on April 22, 2015

At a turning point
Possibilities abound.
Shall I go or stay?

Dreams dissolve in shreds
Imaginings fall apart.
Old loves comfort still.

Ponder future scenes.
Time to take a daring leap
Who knows where I’ll land.

    Thanks. I like crossroads, especially now. It means there are always choices. ❀

    I like your trilogy, what made you choose to do Haikus? It brought out your thoughts beautifully.

      I intended to do three different Haiku Challenges using pairs of words that had no connection with each other. The first one was “wait and move”. the second pair was “want and tatters”. The third was “new and time”. I followed where the first one went and the rest fell into place.

  4. If you leap, which I hope you do, I wish you much love ahead πŸ™‚

  5. Wondering what prompted this. =)

    It came about because I was working on three unconnected Haiku Challenges and they morphed into a trilogy. My cross road/turning point is real. It concerns a healthy, realistic new perspective on aging. Thanks for asking.

  7. Taking leaps are exciting , I admire your courage , your words are full of hope and mystery , bon courage mon amie not sure if thats correct but it sounds a lot more interesting than the english and I used to love when people said it to me, wishing you courage my friend. happy days from kathy.

    Merci for your bon mots. I love the way you describe my words having hope and mystery. ❀

  9. I like “old loves comfort still.” And you have us wondering what the “daring leap” might be. I hope you take us with you! ❀

      Thanks. I didn’t mean anything more specific than embracing my aging and looking forward. I’m a few weeks into my “leap” and do have words unborn to say about it. Thanks for caring.

    ”Old loves comfort still” powerful line. Very good
