Minding My Haiku

Just a single spark —
all you need to fire up
imagination.

*****

Blaming messenger
heralds avoidance when you
can’t bear the message.

*****

Some thorny problems
can’t be solved by deep thinking
and just need deep sleep.

*****

(Prompts used in this post: making fire from We Write Poems, messenger from Sunday Scribblings, and thorn from Weekend Wordsmith)

    It would take me a page and a half of close typing to get anywhere near the amount of wisdom and truth shown in your three haikus. Remarkable work!!
