Life, Small Events, Spirit and Spirituality

Heeding Haiku With HA: Life, Small Events, Spirit and Spirituality

This prompt reminded me of my second year in high school. Several of my sibling were off at college, my closest one had pasted away, and the ones at home were too busy for me.  I had some great news, but no one was home to share it with.  I walked down to the pond and sat on the hill, happy but lonely.  Suddenly a bluebird landed on my hand that was resting on my knee.  It was probably only a moment but time seemed to stop and I was overwhelmed with happiness.  I felt such a connection. It was as if God said yes you matter. This small moment still brings me joy. It made me feel so privileged.  Not able to capture it in a strong haiku but here are my attempts.

on a lonely day
a bluebird on my hand
fills me with joy

~~~

a bluebird perches
momentarily on my hand

lifetime of joy

~~~

bluebird on my hand
time stops as I hold my breath
blessed by an angel

      1. Ah, been there — ! Sometimes you like an element of this one, an element of that one … and can’t quite capture the essence somehow. But — you did well here 🙂
