ALMOST PARADISE ~ Multiple Haiku




When your dream depends

On someone else to come true

There is always risk


What someone else sees

Is more likely THEIR vision

What is best for them


Not meant to deceive

They don’t even think about

How it could hurt you


It’s better for you

To do the hard work yourself

And to turn inward


You then are the one

Who designs your own blueprint

To make things work out


No interference

Exactly what you vision

Your dream is fulfilled


No regrets at all

For the time spent together

Wish them well…move on

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 tried to do a multiple Haiku once but I sprained my ankle…hahaha, I am just feeling silly in this moment. I think it’s just because I thoroughly enjoy everything you write – and did you do that artwork, I think I know the answer to that question. My question is, I suppose, is there anything you can’t do.

    And I think we’re both at the same point, maybe feeling a bit awkward with it or losing our sense of balance but you know what, there is nothing you can’t do.

    And, you are doing so much with that.

    Loving it all,



  2. I love that there is silly in your heart!! Imagine if everyone on the planet could drop into that energy from time to time πŸ™‚ I think there would be a whole lot less negative energy and, therefore, a whole lot less violence.

    Yes, my dear friend, the artwork is mine πŸ™‚ And funny you should say there is nothing I can’t do…because I have always ascribed to that thought in relation to “making things.” At this point I am learning to keep that thought…that energy…and transfer it from just making “things” to “making my life” exactly what I want it to be!!! It is very exciting ❀

    You are so dear to me…and I wish we lived closer because I know we could “while away the hours….”

    Sweet thought of peace and love…


    1. Thanks, Val πŸ™‚ “Express your self to the world,” I love it! I used to “hide” myself. But now as I get to know myself more…and more…I think I won’t be able to NOT express my self! β™‘β™‘

  3. Sweet Lorrie, I can’t help but think that this has to do with a certain friend of yours that may no longer be… I hope you are well Lorrie.
    Much love. πŸ™‚ β™‘


    1. Dear perceptive Staci πŸ˜‰ Yes…this was built around a friendship and an idea of “Paradise” that didn’t work out the way I thought it would. I am great…it is sad…but I have learned so much! Sweet blessings to you β™‘β™‘β™‘

      1. It is sad Lorrie, and I’m sorry to hear that. I’m glad that you are ‘great’ though, and that you have a teachable heart. That even in the tough thing life throws at us, you learned from it.
        Bless you, my friend.
        πŸ™‚ ❀
