Written for:  Carpe Diem #852 Healing
Healing we can find in almost everything. A beautiful comforting song or poem. Or in a wonderful movie or novel. but also in our direct surroundings. As I look outside my window I see the swirling leaves, I smell that sweet perfume of autumn. I can feel the wind and the rain … it cleanses my heart, my soul, my body and my mind.

That’s our goal today … try to write/compose a haiku and let it be that little wonder, that little miracle that makes you happy.

one heartbeat
a flash of light cuts through the sky
a shooting star

a flash of ruby
flutters before my eyes
jeweled neck of hummingbird

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
