As part of an Online Writing Class exercise I am to boldly share my writing to the world and here it is – A Journey of My Heart Into The World. I have written this as a Haiku (A form of Poetry, traditionally written in 3 lines of 5,7,5 words). I quite enjoy the tightness required in writing a Haiku and it is an art I would love to master one day.
Here it is in its complete imperfection – “Done is better than perfection”.
Overstuffed mansion of the head
Defining culture and ID of my belonging
– Brown Desert, the emerging ancestry.
Empty corners of the heart
Dare cross to see what’s on otherside
– Temporary Life, inevitability of death.
Transitioning rights and wrongs in
15 inch space between head and heart
– Heated Assault, dead bark falling.
The timeless abyss bled surrender
Reluctantly dropping toxins of dejection and rejections
– Autumn Death, nature’s birth control.
Shining diamond in the sun
Blowing vapors of Unconditional Love and Compassion
– SO-HUM, I am That!!!
