>Sensational Haiku Wednesday!


Jenn from You know….that blog? hosts the Sensational Haiku Wednesday. Haiku is poetry that consists of three lines, 5-7-5 syllables. It’s really not too difficult and it gets easier each time you create one. I’m getting hooked on the exercise of it. Why don’t you go visit and linky up and give it a try?
This week’s topic is Doldrums. I went a little crazy and did a two-parter. It’s still a bit uneven, but that’s okay with me. 
Iโ€™ve loved faithfully
Endured your cold harsh beauty
Since I was a child
Now I am older
I find you bleak and severe
The weight of you cruel
the sound grew and intensity built and I waited and watched as more leaves leapt from the ground and joined in the merry dance of the wind

Reminder: Today is the last day to enter the Favorite Things Giveaway. It will officially end at 11pm EST.


About CuriousCat

I love to learn new things-anything from how to create a junk journal to the way light moves through space; why cats present their behinds to us to the effects of chemicals on our endocrine system. If it interests me, I can spend hours reading and learning about it.
