A haiku and a diary entry, every now and then, for a year


I had planned to write (that’s five syllables). Christmas would give me the time (there’s seven). But I did nothing (and five again).


Oh well, I could make a timely resolution to try harder but those never stick. Besides, I’m enjoying this, why take the fun out of it? I’ve had some really encouraging feedback and I’m reading some inspiring work on here. I shall continue, pretend it was a planned Christmas break and not beat myself up over missed blogs.

Happy New Year.

A haiku and a diary entry, every day for a year. All in no particular order. 
I’m behind on my blog, I have a gig to write up and another important event but they are still works in progress. So Diary entries and haiku may appear out of synch. It doesn’t really matter, I hop back and forth in my head and the blog will just reflect that.

In the meantime, over a coffee in my favourite weekday haunt, with no willow in sight, I came up with the following.


The Willow weeping

Cries golden tears to the wind

For Winter draws near
