That Was the Week that Was: A Haiku Revue

In my expression
You discern so many words
That go unspoken

Wasted time now dead
Gather up the shattered glass
Holly and ivy

Gentle candlelight
Coffee, collecting my thoughts
I feel Your presence

Try again, my boy
Headphones won’t protect you from
The wild windswept rain

A calm in the storm
Gazing at my friend the moon
I feel most awake

Your bold nonchalance
Nonpluses me more than would
Dismayed stammering

Wind down, up again
One moment of peace is found
With You in silence

That was the week that was, folks. A little haiku-a-day project I came up with, sort of like journaling. But more poetic and abstract. (My journals are for relaxed, non-fancy writing, you see.)

I quite enjoyed it, and I may have to do it again some time. Hope y’all like it!

    1. ๐Ÿ™‚ Well, thanks!
      Yeah, Tuesday wasn’t too bad. I just my time management skills… Thursday’s was inspired by the weather, in a way… (I don’t quite remember)… and Friday, I looked up at the moon through the clouds at the end of a long day spent mostly away from home… and that really was the most awake and alive I felt that entire day. ๐Ÿ™‚
      I’d love to read yours if you gave it a try!


  1. Sorry, this isn’t about your poem, (it was lovely though,) but how do you sign out of WordPress now that they updated it? Okay, that’s probably a really stupid question, but I just don’t get it.


    1. Ugh. Yes, they’ve changed it AGAIN.
      You have to click on your icon in the top right corner and then you’ll see a thing on the left that says “Sign Out”.
      Why they would make a change to decrease the user-friendliness of their website is entirely beyond me. :/


What say you, friend?
