DisorganizedToday my haiku is from January 8th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for the Happily Disorganized and Others of Jumbled Mind, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Shadows”:

hide in the shadows
pretend no one can see you
forget why you’re here

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.


You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

One thought on “Shadows

  1. light versus shadow
    unseen armies at war in
    eternal conflict

    shadow and darkness
    fueled by imagination
    creating demons

    fears doubts and unknowns
    emerge from their shadowy
    sinkhole of the brain

    shackled by shadows
    imagination succumbs
    to uncertainty

    devoid of shadows
    imagination is freed
    for creative thought

    as the light bursts forth
    shadows flee from art, music,
    literature, dance!

    light won this skirmish
    darkness fears light; it retreats
    into the shadows

    fears doubts and unknowns
    return to their shadowy
    sinkhole of the brain

    soon they will battle
    again when the shadows have
    secured a re-match

    light versus shadow
    unseen armies at war in
    eternal conflict
