Haiku & Other Poetry, tutto e niente

like smoke

memories held tight

‘til like a viper they rise

unfurling like smoke

I’ve been largely AWOL this past month for various reasons but I’m trying to reengage, so thanks to the following for inspiring me to do a bit-o-thinking and writing.

Shout out to my always favorite haiku challenge at Ronovan Writes and to the MLMM photo challenge. The photo gave me mood and Ronovan gave me words. (I substituted viper for asp and rise for jump, but you get the idea.)
