The Look In His Eyes

A Haiku

Ravenous; hungry,
A predator devours,
Innocence undone.

Inclement weather,
Unpredictable forecasts,
Will it snow, or not?

When the cold wind blows,
It freezes your nose and toes,
The only cure is…

Chocolate and marshmallows…

Anguish within me,
I’m tormented inside. I’m
drowning, falling, lost.

The fear creeping in,
Crippling my breathing,
Violent trembling.

A Week For Haiku

A Week For Haiku

A Fortnight-Long Series

This week has been more than a little rough for me. At first, I thought it was just my TMJD playing up, but it turns out that that, combined with anxiety really can knock you sideways.

I have found myself struggling to write much of anything because of brain fuzz and migraines, so I’ve been writing a lot of Haiku’s. I thought I’d share them here.

I hope you’ve liked them. I figured I’d explain why I suddenly shared a week of Haiku, so.. I guess now, you know.

In the meantime, I am feeling a little less fuzzy, and I am hoping that I can start writing as per ‘normal’ (well, as normal as I get…)

When the block’s in place,
The answer is simply this:
Look at your life, and…

Get inspired!

When you’re feeling low,
Is when it comes creeping in,
And traps you in fear.

Fake news on the net,
Catchy headlines require “click”
& Content doesn’t match.

When I cannot write,
Every single word’s a fight,
As I stare at white.
