Fresh air, autumn leaves,
Morning dew, crisp air, among tall trees,
Scents of pine, rain, and soil.
Genuine smiles, tight warm hugs,
Good news, hope, and love.
Thank you for being here and reading.
I’d like to greet my existing readers and new readers. I appreciate you.
This recent decision to write Haiku’s has helped me get out of the pressure to write long essay formats or even try to write a poem and feel like I failed somehow. I encourage you if you’re feeling blocked, try a Haiku. If you’re feeling blah, step outside for fresh air, or sit in a quiet place for meditation/prayer.
During this season, it seems for the past few years it’s been rough, and so this post, it was my intention to cheer myself up, because words have power and so do our physical environments. I hope that even for a moment, pausing to reflect on what we’re grateful for, just one thing, keeps us going.
