Haiku #1 – June 2013

with each stone
my joys spread wide
return unseen

Shared with Haiku Heights (Prompt: Ripples).

(June 14th, 2013)

Poetry & writing 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. I like the use of the stone as joy spreading wide ~ The return unseen- didn’t worked for me though ~ I would have preferred another image to contrast or expand that joy ~ Hope you are feeling better leo ~

    • Thanks, Grace 🙂 I meant to imply that just like the displaced water of the ripple returns unseen to us, so does our joy!

  2. C.S. Lewis wrote a book, “Surprised by Joy,” a memoir of his wife, Joy. I sometimes think our joys are like that: They surprise us, and we know not where they come from or how they arrived!

  3. Really enjoyed reading your haiku. It’s a poetry form I love. You’ve given me the courage to put some of my own haiku on my blog. Thank you for that.

  4. This captures the feeling of dropping a stone in a still pond and watching the ripples spread and then fold in on themselves. Lovely. Be well, Leo.
