Time and Movement – Haiku Challenge

Every inch of our movement

takes us closer to the shallow grave

it’s a matter of time.

This haiku might sound morbid, but it’s just a statement of fact. Each moment that we receive never comes back again. When I think of time, I think of the fact that it’s our most valuable commodity and there’s simply not enough of it. Every moment counts make the best of it.

Woke and Up – Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

Once I saw Ronovans’ prompt, woke & up, I chuckled. Getting out of bed these days has been a struggle ‘cos I’ve been sleeping unusually late. The first haiku depicts this ‘bedmatics struggle’ and the second haiku has political connotations.

The shrilling alarm woke me

but it was hard to get up,

my pillow held me down.

If we don’t stay ‘woke,’

and rise up to change the paradigm

we all risk losing everything.

Home and Free… Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Challenge

Right at my homes’ doorstep
I free body parts trapped in what-not,
it’s always a blessed relief!

Everything freely wiggles and jiggles
deep sighs of contentment permeate my being
home, where I can just be me.

After a brief hiatus, it’s a pleasure to participate in Ronovan’s weekly haiku challenge ‘home and free.’

Chance and Equal….Weekly Haiku Challenge

The chances are equal,
to fail or to succeed
the choice is yours.

Chance, Winner, Loser, Chess, Life

I took a chance
and it doubled my gains
I’ll take another one.

Slim and Chance – Haiku Challenge

I got to squeeze in two haikus for the price of one 🙂 Great prompt Ronovan.

Less is More quote

They say less is more

My chance of getting slim and less

is becoming a fat chance

Opportunity

Opportunities are slim these days

Grab every chance you’ve got

Hold onto them real tight
