HuMp DaY Haiku - Splintered

broken and splintered
shadow of it's former self
holds it's own beauty
© Helen Campbell 2012

Splintered and fractured into pieces.
I tell myself that each rough spot has it's own beauty... so I keep looking.
My self tells me it's tired.
Everything in it's time.



I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. 
I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 


Would you like to share a haiku you have written?

You are so good at paying attention to the details. Nothing is too small or insignificant to be noticed. Very nice, Helen.
