One Deep Breath - Solitude.

This week's prompt from One Deep Breath is apt, given that in the past two weeks, I've been spending a lot of time alone - cocooning. I am lucky in being comfortable in my own company (and strictly speaking, since Trixie is with me, I am seldom, indeed, truly alone). Normally, I share only one Haiku, but today, three have emerged, so forgive my indulgence in offering them all to you:


Now I am alone
no-one else drinks from my cup.
My tea has gone cold.


......This is my own space
......my rooms, my floors, my own walls,
......my own voice speaking


She sits here with my,
my silent shadow-sister.
Her hand touches mine.

There will be more Haiku on the theme HERE

I like the second one best--you're really claiming your life as an independent woman.

These are just gorgeous! I particularly like the second one, attesting to your strength in aloneness.

It's interesting how we're each drawn to a certain one - though they each have their own particular beauty, the last one resonates particularly with me.
Thank you.

I like very much the idea of a "shadow-sister." Very cool.

My favorite is number three - I love the idea of a shadow sister (could yours be Trixie?)

I like the one about the tea best, but love them all. What a wonderful genre haiku is.

I like each of these. There's a sadness to them, but also a strength and determination.

you stopped by my 'fortune cookie' post on MessagefromtheMuse.com and left me a comment. i'll have you know it has inspired me to create a mini-poster of my "more" list. so many folks have asked about having it for their wall and YOUR post convinced me to go forward. so when you see it on our site, know that you instigated it!!

have now read a few of your posts and poetry. beautiful work. *applause*

will be back again.

brightly woven,

angi

I love them all - perfect in every way and although all three sing to me, I have to go with the second verse, this eloquent reclaiming of your space and power.

Wow that is just lovely - thanks so much for baring your soul like that - very brave, very touching.
