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: Native Language

on April 3, 2020

Song is a feeling
Borne on wind and blue ocean
Rooted in the soul

Melody alive
Bodies knew without lessons
From the beginning

My song is a dirge
Today ripped without warning
From a heavy heart

A bird is singing
Notes through eons enduring
So be it with us

    Thanks, Dale. I thought it might be too poetic for these times. Hence I wrote another post on the prompt Song. Look for another one today.

  3. Loved the ending especially. It will be difficult, but we will endure.

    Feel free to check out a few of my ‘discover prompt’ haikus, if you’re interested.

  4. Gorgeous Ina, I particularly love the first verse.

  5. “ripped without warning
    from a heavy heart”

    No, you are not alone….hugs
