Poetry Friday: Lemons #haikuforhealing


Terrific poetry can be found at Lisa at Steps and Staircases.  She has a neat visual project with poems invitation:

  Respond to “When Life Gives You Lemons…” or write a poem using an object/making a drawing, as Amy Krouse Rosenthal did with a lemon drop.] If your poem can be expressed visually through a picture or drawing — like Amy Krouse Rosenthal’s “When Life Gives You Lemon Drops”

December 8 #haikufor healing

I’ve been thinking about the SoCal fires.  What’s burning it precious ground for me and I am in despair over the winds and the destruction.  This on top of the Columbia Gorge fires of late summer.


Prayers for the winds to calm and be still and for the wreckage to end.

  1. I’ve been following the heart wrenching news on the fires–I hope they will subside soon. Your haiku does say it all, in so few words, thank you for sharing it Jone.

    Jone, your haiku says so much — Thank you for sharing your take on the lemon prompt. I am gathering the images from Poetry Friday to make a photographic post on Tumblr. I will link back to your blog, if I do this. #Haikuforhealing demonstrates the power of words.

  3. Lovely, heartbreaking haiku. My heart aches for those affected by the fires in California–and the seeming never-ending natural disasters around the world this year.

    Ouch. And you probably bark your knuckles while grating… Hard times.

    Your brief haiku says all, Jone. I am sorry for all the devastation, and particularly for your own connection. I hope that there will be some change today.
