Poems This Week From My Writing Journal

Sipping tea, writing time, and an interrupted robbery all appeared in my writing journal this week.  Here’s a few:

For Haiku Heights: urn

we sit in silence
sip tea from the samovar*
weekly ritual

*a samovar is an urn for tea

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

One Single Impression had the prompt “seeking.” I preferred using the word seeker.

patient snow seeker
watches for signs grey, cold nights
frosty smell of snow

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Tuesday began this way:
phone rings, voice trembles
home robbery stopped by me
invasion of life

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I found time to visit the West Linn Library this week to write.

library write time
settle in, revise manuscript
down the rabbit hole

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Thanksgiving Day
family, friendship, freedom
abundant blessings

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

And after the food and family time…

midnight hour strikes
doors open, bargains appear
crazy Black Friday
