Haiku Wednesday – Whim

“Whim”

Here by some odd twist,

remaining for a moment

at another’s whim.

I normally prefer my existentialism with a dose of humanism, or perhaps some wide-eyed cosmic awe, but I’ve been in a rather negative frame of mind the last couple weeks. Hence, the above.

I’m also not really at liberty to explain why I’ve been in a negative frame of mind, but I’ve been stressed and frustrated, and it’s been difficult to compartmentalize that part of my day from the things I care more about, like my family.

Also, I’m still trying to finish “Uprooted”, but the closer I get to the ending, the more I think I need to spend a little more time in the final place my characters end up. I need to find a way to close this story off without feeling like it’s abrupt, and still leaving room for part 2.

Haiku Sunday – Undiscovered

“Undiscovered”

Recommendations

lead down the rabbit hole to

new musical lands.

Anybody want to listen to some power metal/melodic death metal? Unleash the Archers had popped up in my YouTube recommendations before, but none of their songs caught my ears until the one below. After listening more closely, I’ve just ordered this album Apex off their site.
