Poetry & writing to me are to me, a breath of fresh air in a life that is sometimes covered by the smoke of sorrow or self doubt. They also become the sweets I share to celebrate when life offers me a reason to. But most of all, they are to me, my life. For each word I write is a piece of my heart, a thought that just had to find its way into the world.

  1. Leo,
    Absolutely beautiful and meaningful lines complimented by a perfect picture.
    What a brilliant use of the prompt words. Together they talk of hope for the belittled minds.
    😀 Good job!

  2. Your post inspires me to try a Magpie Tale! Thank you 🙂 You create an amazing overall concept combining the prompt with haiku. Found the resolution in the second stanza to be very uplifting.

  3. Explanation through reasoning is sought when conflicts in the mind seem to mock. 🙁

    Once these are justified the suspicions die down and it is time to move on towards brighter opportunities. 🙂

    Hope my reasoning of those astounding lines are doing justice. 🙂

  4. This requires a bit of thinking through.
    I think I agree with the sentiment if I understand it correctly.
    Just need to try and place it in your psyche.
    Unless it is not meant to be personal.
    It is definitely a 3-pipe problem (Conan Doyle), these days updated to a 3-patch problem :-).

  5. How comforting the light is as the darkness of doubt fades, and we escape once more!

    I love these words and the image – very beautiful!

    Thank you.

  6. love the visual introduction to your deeply thought out haikus…
    compelling, thought provoking. oh how we all desire to be seen, heard, without judgement.
    great resolution.
    enter in the light!

  7. go to the light…i like how you set the tone and bring some resolution with the second yet leave us room to breath our own…nice magpie.

  8. Leo,
    This is quite amazing. I think that it takes quite a talent to use a prompt and to create a haiku that gives a voice to those whose weight and value is not recognized in the world. That is what I have taken away from this beautiful haiku of yours. It is a gift to the marginalized of this world. Lovely. I am on a trip to Santa Fe right now or I would have gotten to it sooner.
    xo,

    • thanks Noelle 🙂 glad you could take something back from this haiku of mine 😀 yes, marginalism is rampant these days, even we do it with our thoughts 😉 It’s ok, have a nice trip.. I always leave a link back to my contributions 🙂

  9. Very Hopeful voice…
    ‘Light beckons’ are so powerful words…
    Brilliant take on the prompt…:):)
    Absurd thinking should be totally promoted sometimes…:)

  10. Is this what I think it is?? 😀 😀

    Am I #100?? 😉 I am seeking impartial judgement…and I have the right to be heard!!! 🙂

  11. Everyone wishes for a balanced world, no prejudices, but…sad to say that’s just a figment of my imagination now… 🙁

    I am beginning to like WordPress…I very much like your blog’s look now…am loving it! 😉

    Could you help? Don’t say no! 😛

    • yeah.. lots of people want that.. but still, thoughts remain unheard.. or heard partially Amity..
