Weekend Poem Blog Hop

Hello, I'm back doing the Weekend Poem in Your Blog Hop,Hosted by What She Read.
If you're just joining us for the first time, you can post a poem about anything at all (yours or someone else's) then link back to What She Read and visit other poem-rich bloggers.

Today I am featuring the poetry of a friend of mine, Hope of Hope-Full Universe.  She is an amazing poet and artist - I absolutely love her positive, whimsical attitude and the wonderful colours in her art.  Her work always makes me smile and feel happy, so I thought it would be fun to share it here.  If you like her work, you can check out her Facebook Page here for more.
Hope is the master of the haiku, amongst other things.  Here are some examples:
inspiration comes
at the strangest of all times
keep a pen handy
random acts of kindness
make the world go round and round
so take time today!
refreshing, cooling
the breeze blows gently today
trees sway happily
imagine free will
of mind, body and spirit
harnessed into one
they are laughing and
dancing, carefree, existing
'bout campfire. FAERIES!
what do i need? BrAiNs?!
probably, since i feel like
a hungry zombie
each tiny step is
just a little bit closer
to your highest goal
take a deep breath, relax
you can do it, whatever
you put your mind to!

Reading Hope's poems make me want to try to write haiku's today.  Anyone want to join me?  The structure is three lines, first line 5 syllables, second line 7 syllables, third line 5 syllables.


  1. Daedalus

    In the interstice
    between sleepiness
    And slumber,hope
    flexes muscle, pumps
    the hearts blood,
    drags taut, the
    wings feather-

    and dreams take flight.


  2. I especially admire the first haiku: such a helpful reminder!
    And PL's Daedalus poem's a fine addition too.


I really appreciate your comments.
