Haiku Blogfest!

Below is my very rushed entry for Stephanie Thornton's Haiku Blogfest. A weekend that I thought would be available for me to participate to the fullest suddenly got overwhelmingly busy. When I thought I'd be able to visit everyone's blog and praise their efforts, instead I will be visiting with family I haven't seen in about two years. Yeah, it's an estrangement thing. Uncomfortable to say the least, so I will wish I were reading your haikus instead. I still hope to catch some during stolen moments to myself.

Without further ado, the haiku:


"WIP: a decade later"

In the hand fire sleeps
testimony of the will
written, inferno

"Written, inferno". That alone is facinating.

Very nice!

Stephanie Thornton said...

Inferno is a such a good word!

Have fun with the family! I thought this weekend would be peaceful too, but it's come at the end of a crazy week. I just want to sleep!

arggh! I wrote you a haiku response and the computer ate it. Let's see if I can remember it.

Stopping my mind now
Your words are an autumn branch

Lovely. I agree with Stephanie, inferno is a great word, so many different nuances.

Hope all goes well with the family. Isn't it funny how life has a way of intruding on our best laid plans?
