Shorts (haiku and tanka)

1.
The grass outside hides
A cave where our dreams reside;
Let’s shelter inside.
2.
Keep On
Pursue life and love
There are enough death and hate,
Keep forever safe –
From thought of our causing harm,
To these selves freely given.
3.
Who will carry us
When we have nothing to give,
Like Winter bare trees?
4.
Their desolation
Lies thick as whimpering pups,
Whose mother is lost.
5.
Say, “Hello, today!”
Yesterday has retreated
Leaving vacant space;
Tomorrow may not arrive
For us, uncertain alive.

Prompt – Do you haiku and tanka? So now, produce.

Sunday’s Thoughts

© Jo Ann J. A. Jordan

I wrote these with a fountain pen, which is not my best instrument. These are my journal pages. If you read them, you will get insight into where and what my state of mind is.

I would have scanned them into the computer, but my equipment and the program did not cooperate with me. Therefore, I did the phone as I have for the past months.

Showing journal pages is a level of openness I can do, but it is a bit uncomfortable. I have no idea how this audience will react, so it is a gamble.

How revealing can you be? Consider that a prompt.

Blessings, I hope, always find you. Jesus, lend you peace. Live, alive, and Love cause that is why we are here on Earth.

Day 116 – 2022 Creativity Project

Trying different things. I hope you enjoy them. Likes, comments, follows and shares are appreciated.

The graphic portion of the above creation was done in CC Express. The design, photo, and poem were mine.

I recommend CC Express. It is very fun to use on all devices.

Prompt: If you are not creating, find a way to now. If you are, do something that stretches your talents.

I am intrigued by art journaling. Although I never used elements I did not make myself before, I have friends who do amazing things with found items and collage. So, I am trying different things.

Prompt: Try adding bits not your own and create.

Thank you for visiting. Follow, like, comment, or share if you wish. Any interaction is appreciated.

Gratitude: Working, talking to my son, books, salvation, music.

Days float by, a daze/ Every feeling caught in haze/ Exploring life’s maze.
