Break free..

Written in “Haiku” form, for String, the 52nd theme at Haiku Heights, and for the 63rd week of Saturday Centus.


Forget these strings; I’m
Not getting any younger
Time to have some fun

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.

  2. great Haiku! “Strings”…hmmm…strings of attachment…perhaps the writer is a serious violinist…for some reason I immediately thought of a musician…go figure…Peace and blessings

    • Haha πŸ˜€ I did think of those strings first, Jeff. But then again, I didn’t know how to put a haiku with that, so made it a strings of attachment poem πŸ˜€

  3. YAAAY!! Break free and live life king size Leo!! πŸ™‚ Its never too late πŸ™‚ You have a very meaningful Haiku here with so much of simplicity and filled with humility!! Great one Lion King!!

    Enjoy!!

    • I admire anyone who can craft haiku too, Jenny, hence the meme of mine called Haiku Heights. πŸ™‚ Glad you liked it and felt it beautiful. And your visit serves as a reminder to do Centus this time too πŸ˜‰ Thanks!
