Looking for flowers

Looking for flowers
Stepping up to, around
Conflict to find peace
Snapdragons (Antirrhinum majus)

I snapped this photo of flowers along my path today. Tonight, I wrote this haiku in response to this prompt: “What kinds of situations do I avoid?” It is the fifth in what I hope to be a series of 30 posts in honor of NaBloPoMo.

Hopeful to the End

Looking for flowers
She stepped, skipped, and lept

For at least a few posts this month, I’m following writing prompts for NaBloPoMo. The prompt for Day 3 was “How would I like people to remember me when I am no longer here?” See this and other prompts at http://elizadavid.com/nablopomo2020/.

Existential Hope

I hope today isn't my last day, because I want to see when "us" realize that we are "them" too.

I tripped all over my tongue today. Err, yesterday. Now, it’s half way to dawn and my mind still meanders.

(SIGH)

My remedy? A bit of “Om Mani Padme Hum.”

This late night mindtrip was Inspired by a growing and compassionate soul.
