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.

Our hardship forms the backbone of our success. Without these travails – as unpleasant as they may be – where would our stories of triumph be?
Your past is not your anchor
Be the master of your sea
Your boat has many ports to visit.

Enfolded in warm brawny arms
their hearts thump in a blissful state,
love is a good thing
Haiku Challenge – Bliss&Brawn
My dark, silent thoughts
are no longer at peace with me.
Restless, they simply have
to spill into lettered words.

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.’
The chances are equal,
to fail or to succeed
the choice is yours.
I took a chance
and it doubled my gains
I’ll take another one.
