‘Lost or Found’ Published at Whispers & Echoes!

I have been aware of this delightful, whimsical, poetic magazine for some time now so, when the magazine put out a call for haikus’ on hope, I was inspired to respond.

Given that I have a section dedicated to haikus, you can probably guess I love to tell stories with as few as seventeen syllables, for that is what a haiku is: it is a Japanese structured poem, consisting of five syllables in the first line, seven in the second, and five syllables in the final line. Haiku’s are also usually themed around nature, but I sometimes bend that rule.

Whispers and Echoes is an online journal sharing short fiction and poetry. With a name that reflects its love for unheard or previously silent thoughts, I am delighted to have my poem included among their artfully crafted pieces by other writers.

For many people, journaling is the way to go when it comes to working through their emotions and finding little things to be grateful for.

Since I have so many thoughts on what is happening in the world right now, writing is my favorite way to work through emotions and decide how I feel about something. Writing is also another way I work to understand issues I feel confused about; telling a story through poetry or prose helps me see the problem from as many different angles as needed.

Find it in the blue . . . please continue reading here. Since I wrote Lost or Found a while back, re-reading its three lines now gives me a new experience of the haiku. I would love to know your experience of the poem!
