Haiku Sunday – Unity – JG

  • So haikus aren’t really my bag; generally, writing one makes me feel as though I have left too much unspoken, but I figured on this anniversary I’ll take a page from Stevie’s book and try my pen at subtle and poignant. Wish me luck:

This has been a strange month. I went on a five day vacation only to decide to move to Colorado for the foreseeable future, and because I can do nothing by halves, this of course meant I began planning to move immediately.

July 8 Theme: The Color of Jealousy?

We are now reaching sin number four in our seven-part, seven-week poetry series featuring the Seven Deadly Sins! We also had two guest submissions for the first time, which is always exciting.

July 1 Theme: Gluttonous Appetites

Welcome to week 3 of the Seven Deadly Sins series! Last week’s contributions to the theme of Lust proved to come from completely different directions once again. Who knew that one theme could cover the birth of a child, a hunting predator, and the physical connection between people in one shot? Continue reading “July 1 Theme: Gluttonous Appetites”
