Haiku Journal Day 70 – Embrace Joy

Joy smashed by my Fear
Fear pushed out by gratefulness
Savor the goodness

Playing fearful tapes
Avoiding disappointment
Expect the worst, hope….

How can you possibly know?
You don’t need to be

Am I also numbing?
Savor instead of avoid
We all do somewhat

Give up busyness
It is my form of numbing
Not savoring life

Haiku Journal Day 69 SHAME, PAIN, SHAME

And shame appeared today
I knew one day would happen
What I did caused it

I feel guilty for it
I hate I did this to you
I cry because I did

Sorry I caused doubt
Sorry I made you cry and fear
My action did this

I phoned in a friend
Crying only helps a bit
Empathetic ear

Haiku Journal Day 65

So much violence
Available like head scripts
Dream world disrupted

Birds are chattery
Eight AM meeting coming

Bring on the coffee
Class with friends, passed flying high
Plus, learned a few things

Storms’ rolling thunder
Clouds billowing full and lit
With strong wind and rain

Crept fun in between
Through exhaustion, enjoy love
Food, drinks, love, laughter

Haiku Journal Day 51

No words for today
Blank mind, yet at peace mostly
Cherish little things

Sighs, tickles, laughter
Every day chores, silliness
Planning and helping

Nothing too special
Just comfortably happy
Every day marriage
