Minding My Haiku

Just a single spark —
all you need to fire up


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!!
