Haiku to Meditate

Wednesday, November 16, 2011

Debonnaire Definition and HaikuThanks Jenn for this haiku theme


Burst of emotion.
Crumbling down inside of you.
Relax, take a breath.


There are these days in our life where everything seems to go wrong. Since early morning, it feels like getting off on the wrong side of the bed. Nothing... just nothing gets as you wish! Days like these make me wanna scream or even cry. But, screaming and crying actually won't bring you anywhere. So, what to do? Well, you could give yourself a break and start to meditate. It's the art to reach some peace of mind. Focusing on the positive rather than seeing the negative. Finding a way to release your stress or even anger, leading to clear thoughts that help you carry on and reflect on life. A media to energize!

On a side note I gotta tell you, sometimes I feel like Jenn can read my mind. It has been a couple of times that the given themes correlated so well with my present life.  Like today, I felt quite hectic from the start. But, thinking about this theme made me realize that I needed to relax from these burst of emotion, crumbling down inside of me. It really helped me to get back to my usual self with this meditate haiku theme. Thank you. If you feel in distress, may be you should try to take on haiku too?

The meme basics:

Haiku is simple!
It is 3 non-rhyming lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables respectively
(a great way to use your fingers!)

I don't create poetry, I create myself,
for me my poems are a way to me.

~Edith Södergran

Keep a poem in your heart.

*hugs* Rosidah :) I think too many of us are stressed out these days, and I'm sorry you share that trait with me! I've started seeing a massage therapist, and will be starting back to the gym this week also. I am also going to attempt meditation, but finding the quiet time and spot may be a challenge for me! Perhaps I'll do it while my masseur is torturing me!! Hrm. Perhaps not.

I feel your haiku, and love it. Truly.
