HuMp DaY Haiku - Curves

Winding road ahead. 
Looking back upon the curves
shows how far we've come.
Part way up the winding road to Artist Point near Mount Baker.

I'm in a bumpy winding place right now, so am keeping my focus on getting to the gorgeous view just ahead. I know it's there, just have to hang on for another curve or two. 

A year or so ago, I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue. 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 may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to see what they've created and say hello.

Hope that bumpy winding road calms a little for you.:) Nice photo, great Haiku as always. Thanks Helen.

Don't you agree that sharing helps straighten some of the 'curves'?
