Nano Poblano 2017- 30 Days of Haiku- Day 21

“Share your story here…”
The prompt on the screen mocks me
My lack of ideas

****

“Share your story here…”
My mind’s gone blank and I’ve got
No story to tell

****

“Share your story here…”
No bright ideas light my way
Stumbling in the dark

****

“Share your story here…”
Inspiration’s gotten lost
On her way to me

****

Left me all alone
Staring at a screen that says
“Share your story here…”

Nano Poblano 2017- 30 Days of Haiku- Day 19

There’s a family
Of mice that are living out
On our patio

****

Obviously the
Birds are not the only ones
Enjoying birdseed

****

The birds are messy
Eaters scattering birdseed
All over the place

****

The mice are little
Opportunists happy to
Eat whatever spills

****

Mouse peeked out at me
While I was filling feeders
‘Twas adorable

****

I’m more than happy
For them to live outside but
Outside they must stay

****

Because apartment
Management probably won’t
Find them quite as cute

I should probably
Be using prompts to help me
Write haiku this month

****

Instead I have been
Hoping for inspiration
To drop in my lap

****

That magnificent
Ideas will just spring to life
When I start to write

****

Beautiful haiku
That fill people with wonder
And inspire them

****

Instead I’m writing
Haiku about wanting to
Write pretty haiku

****

I’m sure that there’s a
Life lesson hidden in this
Waiting to be found
