One Year of One Deep Breath

one
brief
moment
captured
with words on paper
memory frozen in time
One year ago, One Deep Breath began offering us the oppotunity to share haiku based on a weekly prompt. The challege of this poetry is to capture the essence of an image or experience in just a few carefully chosen words. The best haiku read like an exhalation of one deep breath, the kind you might experience when a moment of beauty strikes your heart.
Thanks to Susan and Jennifer for encouraging us to stop each week in the midst of our busy lives and ponder the wide world, searching for that special something that catches our eye in just a certain way, then pare it down to its essence and write about it.

  1. I like the idea of haiku striking your heart. It seems so much more real to me than a moment of beauty that strikes your mind. Nicely explained.

  2. Hey I luv with you written. It captures the whole essence of my passion for writing. Hope you have a great week ahead!!!
