On Saying Goodbye

I see you, standing by the gate
examining your ticket, my
heart stops, blood fills my ears

call your name, you freeze,
turn to face me, your eyes light
up, make my heart race, soar

I hurry towards you,
a grin so wide my face aches,
hand you the roses, love

This is my final poem for NaHaiWriMo.

I used a prompt from their FaceBook page – AIRPORT.

I am in the process of compiling the Haiku into an ebook to go on sale tomorrow.

The Dreamer

wide open heart, free, full
of love, hopes for future,
full of life, promise

flying high, soaring, new
life awaits, fresh hopes, dreams
of a brand new day

This is my effort today for NaHaiWriMo.

I did not use any prompt and the haiku came to me on it’s own.

Tomorrow is the last day of NaHaiWriMo. In March I will be writing  100-word story every day. The stories will be different and don’t have a linked theme or anything. I plan to publish them as a collection on the 1 April. The haiku written this month will be released as a collection on 1 March.

Blue-Eyed Girl

heavy head, unseen weight
pinning her down, stiff limbs, like
blocks of cement, stone

she can’t breathe, trapped in
thick tar, suffocating, claw
at her throat, panic

sadness in her heart,
tears fall in the dark, light hurts her
deathly pale skin, leave scars

This is my effort today for NaHaiWriMo.

I didn;t use the prompt on their FaceBook page (BUDDHA) because nothing came to me. This haiku reflects how I’ve been feeling recently.

Our Life, Apart

we need to find a way
to not be together, to move
on, to start to heal

our love is over,
time to build our own lives,
without each other

you’re not my knight, I won’t
need you to save me, we’ll become like
familiar strangers

Out With The Old

heard you had a new
love, someone shiny & whole, no scars,
not in pieces like me

you once told me how much
you loved my broken parts, my scars
showed I’d lived

remember nights when
we’d cuddle in bed, you touched
my wounded bits, loved me

you told pretty lies, said
you’d never hurt me, love me always,
but you tore me apart

The Last Leaf Of Autumn

brown, brittle, crumbles
like ash in my fingers, last breath,
dying like our great love

This is my effort today for NaHaiWriMo.

I used the prompt for their facebook page – LEAF.

I want to release a collection of the haiku’s written this month on the 1st March. I better start thinking about compiling it, writing the blurb and designing the cover.

Heart Over Head

one look, fell for you,
hook, line, utterly sunk, lost my mind,
only aware of you

knew you were bad news,
big stupid heart didn’t care, only
wanted you, always

This is my effort today for NaHaiWriMo.

A Meeting Of Two Hearts

young lovers, tryst under
a sakura tree in full bloom,
pink cherry blossoms dance

above their head, weave
to and fro in the autumn wind,
whisper songs of love

two hearts, beating as
one, one voice, one love beneath
the ancient blooms, singing

Copyright © 2017 by Pamela Scott

This is my effort today for NaHaiWriMo

I used a prompt from their FaceBook page – CHERRY BLOSSOM.

I actually did a bit of research into the history of this flower and discovered there is a tradition of people meeting under a sakura tree in bloom. This idea inspired the poem.
