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

Haiku: State of My Year

on May 19, 2015

Half-way-between time.
Winter’s chills are behind me
Summer heat ahead.

Now whimsy-filled Spring
Locates soul’s ardent longings.
Promise uncertain.

    Thanks, Christy. I appreciate your critique of my writing. The form of haiku pushes me to hunt for essential words (in the sense of “essence”). I enjoy the challenge.
