National Poetry Month Haiku #14 The Wind

We are having some really, really high winds around here today and when I looked outside at the leaves and twigs and other things blowing around the yard I thought about the seeds and how the wind carries them from one home to the next like travelers looking to settle a new territory.

I don't know how useful the brainstorms are so I haven't posted that...just the poem.


The Wind

windy dancing day
tumbling, stumbling seeds
miracle to come

I have loved everything about your entries this month- the haiku, the photos, AND the brainstorms. It's fun to see how a real poet works!

Thanks! And I owe you a response but am moving it to email since I can't keep track of my LJ mails as easily. Just didn't want you to think I'd forgotten you.

That's a much nicer view of the wind than I was taking yesterday! Pretty!

Oh that wind must have been something fierce up at your place.

I think the brainstorms are a great chance to see the behind-the-scenes process.

okay...a couple of people had said that so I guess I'll put them back in. I wasn't sure if it made the post too long. :)

Thanks for the blog post idea.
Thanks for blogging Haiku poems celebrating National Poetry month. My day inspired me to write Haiku, too. Thanks.

Your Haiku poem is beautiful!

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
