Three Haiku’s Published at BlogNostics!

I am delighted to share that three haiku’s I deeply enjoyed writing, Mine, Match, and Staged, have been published at BlogNostics!

BlogNostics is an online collective of artists that takes pride in showing people you! So write what you know and feel and let it shine.

I began writing poetically with haikus. I loved sitting outside beside the pinking hydrangea bushes and encompassing a huge thought in small words. Also, given their syllable count, haikus were also easy to learn to write.

I was frightened of free verse; frightened at the thought of too much freedom, afraid to see where it would take me. So I continued to condense thoughts into tiny poems because my longer pieces seemed too long; too unclear.

Over time, as I read the work of fellow writers, I began to loosen up. I wanted to harness the ability to tell a story freely, in as many words as needed.

At first I copied the styles of known writers to find my own. Then I looked past styles to learn how to present a scene, capture a feeling, tell a story.

We read, ultimately, to learn. We learn something new about fast fashion, about dog collars, even Italy reading articles, blog posts, and books. Whether we know it or not, we absorb what we learned. And when we sit down to write, we call on what we know.

These little things I absorb over the day work into my writing. Stories from my rural mountain home, faraway Italy, which I have never seen, a bit of Egyptian pottery I once saw in a magazine turn into the focus of my writing. I write what I feel and think I know and that makes it true.

These three haikus are deeply what I know, coming straight from experiences living in the mountains of Virginia.

I hope you enjoy Mine, Match, and Staged, a story, if you will, in titles.

Mine

Not all godmother’s . .

Match

We are all knights at. .

Staged

Adore a sunset . .

Please continue reading here and feel free to share your beautiful thoughts!

  1. Congratulations on getting three of your haikus published! Nothing wrong with trying out different kinds of styles. Sometimes, you need to try out a style and make something out of it too in the end! It is great that your work is getting the spotlight! Keep it up!!

  4. Congrats on being published! That’s amazing!
    I call myself structurally creative, so can relate to the security felt in starting with Haiku for poetry. I feel there’s such a challenge in creating an image with so few words, though, and you do it so well. Thanks for sharing your journey in writing too. I love hearing how you’ve grown into the poet you are today πŸ™‚
