I was challenged by a friend to deal with some anger and stress issues through poetry. I am not a poetry inclined person, but I agreed to the challenge anyway. It is simple. Write 10 Haiku's, but do so only when I am angry, tired, or stressed out. I am supposed to clear my mind, think about my day, and then write a poem. It is actually harder then it sounds. I had start by leaning about Haiku. I've adopted the english short sentence, long sentence, short sentence approach over the traditional 17 syllable method. It's just too hard to do it the traditional way.
Heat envelops my mind
as a warm breeze licks the skin
fire arcs in me again
Did it work? Well It took two hour to write. I feel better for trying. Please let me know what you think. Any help is appreciated.
There is no need for me to suffer alone, I hereby challenge the atheist blogroll to put their best Haiku forward.
