My First Haiku

Stillness sits between

Beauty hides in the crevice

Green backdrop of life




I’m contemplating erasing this because I have “fear” trying a new form of poetry.  Admittedly,  this is brand new to me and I’m not even sure I am doing it any justice.  But I have decided that I won’t let fear rule my life.  So I will apologize if I have not done the form justice…and I welcome any comments as to why.

My healing journey on the continuum of "It's all wrong" to "It's all right!" I love art and the creative process, reading, writing, and playing tennis.

  1. I love love love this haiku!! 🙂 It is beautiful! and like all haikus it also carries within something mysterious, something more than the obvious beauty. It is shining from both inside and outside. It is like a gorgoeus red and yellow autumn leaf floating on a river, beautiful to behold, and carrying with it the whole story of a life lived, of a tree, and a another river bank 🙂


    1. You are so amazing Line! Thank you…Thank you!! You are so encouraging and it means so much to me. The words you wrote are exceptional…I am humbled by the beauty of your interpretation. It is like a poem unto itself. Thank you, again!
