Thank you 🙂 And Enjoy! http://bit.ly/1hUB6Yc #poemaday #whenthesunwakes
Thank you. I enjoyed your poem very much 🙂
Thanks, I’m glad!
A great triptych of poems which hangs together wonderfully and progresses the idea of the ‘dark’ revealing the ‘light’ superbly. I have really enjoyed all three – although ‘nightmare’ and ‘3153’ only appear to be in my inbox! – hence only the one comment!
Oh dear – I think I’ve made my blog hiccup by mucking about! No matter. There should only be one hailku published, entitled ‘Joy’… I expect it will sort itself out. And thank you for your appreciation, Chris.
Well, to be honest, I like the way things appeared in my inbox!!! And you are welcome!
Full of grace. Thank you for the inspiration. xo
As I read this, I immediately thought of the Zen poet Masahide’s famous line, “Barn’s burnt down, now I can see the moon.” The last line of your haiku is a poignant reminder to try to find something redeeming even in the most trying of times. Well done, Rachael!
Such a hard thing to do sometimes. I confess I had not heard of Masahide- but good to know that the idea had gone before. Thank you dear friend. A hope you’re having a good week.
I’ve always said that a lot of your haiku poetry strikes me as very Zen, and this is another instance of that. We’re having some crazy weather over here, but nothing like farther south. Hope all is well with you!

Don’t know what’s happening with the weather, but it must be coming from your end. Severe weather warnings are out for tomorrow. Heavy rainstorms, I think.
Thanks – they just keep on coming 🙂
good, let’em 😉
Haa! Where do you get all your amazing graphics from btw? I presume some are your own? 🙂
Marvelous. Keep it up.

Your haiku are fabulous. Keep them coming too 🙂
[…] I discovered that sometimes Rachael writes Haiku and plays with other short forms of poetry (she did warn in her ABOUT ‘ And when it all gets too complicated … I curl up on the sofa and write haiku’). I found one Haiku in April of 2014 that really resonated with me. It is called Joy: […]
