National Poetry Month -- Haiku 2
Ferry Wake
It was stormy here this morning, although that's already hard to fathom,
with the sky turning toward blue and the birds content.
I lay in bed listening, wanting to incorporate the sounds of the storm into my dreams,
knowing I had to get up and start the day.

My Thursdays are long... the alarm goes off at 5 a.m. and I finish teaching at 9:30 p.m.
How do you look ahead at a day like that without getting overwhelmed? 
How do you stay present in each moment when there are so many moments tugging at your sleeves?

Haiku 2

Thunder black and deep;
there's so much to say today
it shakes me awake

Re: moments tugging at your sleeves

O thank you, m'dear...

May I make an ink illustration for your haiku

Would you like to collaborate on a book? I make ink drawings, they may fit well together. I could send you a sample, let me know,

Tampa, FL


at 5a.m. can barely be considered morning. Chances for 15 minutes cat nap in there anywhere?

Beautiful haiku Liz. I'm glad for your poetry month vigor.


Oh so very lovely. You were able to whip that out so early in the morning? Wow!

I think we got some of that black and deep thunder our way (middle TN). Thanks for the haiku.


Thank you all for reading!! (And I DID take a nap!! A totally haiku-worthy nap!)
