I didn’t know how to put this forward or make it clear, but here it goes. I’m going to be making some noise in this little space of mine for a little while. I’m working on a little series for the poetry fans who wonder this way, hopefully it will be for fans of any kind of written work. This is something to get me playing with style a little bit more, keep me in touch with the blogger-sphere and fellow writers, I’m calling it …

Poems for Planets!!

 

Don’t worry, I’m saving the creativity for the actual content, hopefully this allows me a pass on this title.

I’ll open the series on a light note, something to brighten the tone. Here I present to you my opening Haiku.

 

 

Sun Light

heavens bands of fire

Washing the earth with light.

Waiting for winter.

Stay tuned for the rest of the 9 planets, feel free to play along or share the fun.

 

Writing 201 – Day 1, part 2: Haiku “Floating/fleeting”

IMG_0338-0

Today’s Challenge for Writing 201 has left me revelling in the allure of a newness. I’ve spent my evening pouring over the various submission to the days prompt with varying degrees of understanding, curiosity and awe. 17 syllables have trapped me in fascination and I fail to shake there grasp. With the same brief still in mind I have decided to contribute another poem. Another haiku to further confuse my idea of rhythm, meter and prose, and to better talk in a finer tuned tone of brevity.

FLEETING/FLOATING

Sprawling anxious waves
Alive like stolen secrets.
Every breath recedes.

Another brilliant blogging U by the wonderful team at Daily post. With the prompt for the day being “water”, I had to whip up a Haiku, and throwing in a simile for good measure. Enjoy!

Heaven opens up,
It bleeds, Like broken mirrors.
Earth surrenders thirst!
