I’m back! Did you miss me?!
Was distracted briefly by hospital stuff then seemed to lose my haiku-a-day mojo for a (long) while and once I stopped it felt like such an effort trying to go back and fill the spaces in the days that were missing a wee poem. And then the days turned into weeks. And it seemed like even more of a Herculean task to catch up given it seems to take me a stupid amount of time to compose such a small verse. Small but perfectly formed though is what they need to be and that takes a lot of thinking.
Anyhoo, I will try not to worry about the lapses in my daily haiku challenge for now and just start doing them again! You never know I might be able to scrabble together notes and try and remember what was going on these last few weeks and do a couple a day to fill in the gaps. Then before you know it we’ll be back up to date. The sad thing is I know of one person who used to look forward to my daily haikus who won’t be reading them anymore – another reason I lost my mojo, I’ve also been losing too many friends to this stupid disease these last few months. So this first one of my new batch is for the beautiful Carol, whom I miss very much. I will think of you each time I try to capture and enjoy the beauty or magic of a tiny moment in time in my writing, just as you did in real life. See you on the other side for a ‘brew’ lady…. x
