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.

Sail On…A Thought For Tuesday

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.

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.
