till he can breathe free

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. Yeah, I'm quite patient and persistent like a spider, MMT ๐Ÿ™‚ ๐Ÿ™‚ but I wait patiently for another fly if one goes out of my grasp, rather than fuss over the lost one ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you liked it.

  2. I think that spiders are patient and seem to represent the fragility of the world, slowly weaving something so thin a translucent that raindrops are caught in it. There is a tenderness about their task that is little appreciated. Very nice haiku for this little Charlotte.Noelle

  3. Oh! ๐Ÿ˜€ I have just the two, Amanda ๐Ÿ˜‰ This one, I had b4 I shifted to WordPress bcoz of a technical error. Its where I started out blogging. ๐Ÿ™‚ And regards the font, I just embedded it in my template code.

  4. This is a lovely haiku and image. ย Yesterday I had to practise breathing in deep on a very crowded, noisy train that came to a stand still whilst I was getting a feeling of being hemmed in! ย This is what came to mind – practising patience.ย 

  5. Oh, that patience is already acquired by me a while back itself, Susan. It still is easy to reach the limits of that patience though.! Glad you liked the haiku & image.

  6. hi, Vinay / Leo. I have a different interpretation here, I thought it is about the feeling of "the spider victim " : being trapped by the web. you know: you must walk very patiently to release yourself, since you'll never know when you'll be free. Anyway, great haiku! Btw, sorry for double comments, if any. Happy rally.

  7. This is interesting. I see many people associate it with the spider, but my opinions is somewhat similar to Eclipse. I see it from spider victim's point of view. To gain freedom, even though we're trapped in spider web. Thanks for sharing, happy rally. ^^dhitz of dhitermination.wordpress.com

  8. Patience will never stop trying:PI loved the crisp delivery and definitely the spider photo:)Always wondering how you manage to shape your thoughts with duplicate meaning in a flow.Amazing!

  9. Your haiku is beautiful . . .ย  Of all the poets that I read, you absolutely amaze me the most.ย ย  It's wonderful that your readers search between the lines of your work.ย ย  You've gained their respect as a writer.ย  Blessings.

  10. It is possible to see it from both angles I think. Glad you liked the haiku, Dhitz. No probs for the double comment.. Thank you for the visits ๐Ÿ™‚
