Haiku? I have no idea.

the other day, I grabbed my paintbrush.. and out came an Angel.. she was tucked away until today and I knew why she had appeared

holding me in hope


her white wings


protect me from fear

and this is not haiku - but the best I could come up with.

today - my cancer checkup

All the best, Boonie

Lovely haiku! Wishing you well! Cathy

To be honest, I may sound sacrilegious to the Japanese creative masters of haiku, but I ask, like art, what is haiku? If yours isn't, then there isn't any. Very nice. And I love the angel. I smell the patchoulli and like it.

Peace.

Oh, how I love to shatter people's misconceptions about haiku! ("Haiku is three non-rhyming lines of poetry with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.") What you have written is indeed haiku. You weren't counting syllables, but the beating of your heart. Thank you for this precious gift!

deb did it said...

quite frankly it IS a haiku...you got it!! 5-3-5...some are 5-7-5...and yours is so beautiful. What a lovely painting. Makes me wanna pick up a paintbrush...DID YOU JUMP YET??

Imogen said...

Oh, good luck! - will be thinking of you, hoping it's an all-clear again.

I think your "Hope Angel" is going to see to it that you have a perfect check-up!

H - happy
O - optimistic
P - party
E - energy

Have a wonderful day!

it is a lovely post.... filled with hope and love overflowing... it is wonderful to know when fear comes we are not alone... shall we not get hung up on the syllable count but remain hearts poised on the vision...

She is a beautiful guiding farishta Miss R. I hope that your day went well and that the universe enfolded you in loving arms and brought you the best of tidings.

this reminds me of what Emily said..."Hope is the thing with feathers that perches in the soul."

Your sweet angel's wings seem to flutter with hope. Lovely!

Caya-Papaya said...

So wonderful and important. I am an art therapist, and I believe very much in the power of the images that we create to help ourselves heal. Your image is beautiful. I hope this angel helps and protects you in all that you do.

Your paint brush has translated your inner knowledge.

So sweet and hopeful. A good haiku substitute.

Pam said...

Trust all went well for you on Friday Robyn. Love the little angel you painted, heralding hope. I'm sure your results will be good. "Hearts poised on the vision" was a beautiful way to put it, posted on an earlier comment here. Caught up on some previous posts. The boys are beautiful.xxx

I think it's beautiful. The very essence of haiku. Perfect.

Wishing all the best.
