I love haikus! It’s awesome how much you can say with so little…
And i love the imagery… aren’t we all climbing silently too? 😉
Thanks so much, Nanda, and I agree! I took this photo while hiking and loved it. My son helped with the final touches. Yes, I do believe we all are silently climbing…striving for something bigger~:)
There is a bit of mystery, isn’t there? 🙂
What a beautiful metaphor for life. Reminds me of my poem “A Hundred Monkeys”
Thanks, Sandra, and yes, this is very similar, metaphorically, to your poem (loved it), as well! 🙂
Lauren, I had almost forgotten how much I enjoy haiku until this post. Thank you! For me with my writing goals, VERTICAL climbing seems to hold the key!
Thanks, Rose! The metaphor is so fitting, isn’t it? I have never written haiku, until I actively started this blog less then two months ago. Check the others out and let me know what you think! (when you have time, of course! 🙂 ) I’m enjoying them, very much, and I love to add images, if possible.
I love it!! You portrayed the skill of a lizard very well!!
Thank you and it’s also metaphorical, about us moving forward through life. I usually try to use metaphor, comparing to life in some way, if I’m able! 🙂
I did read that most Haiku are written about nature. As you read mine, you’ll find I deviated at times….
I am loving your haiku’s I am not new to reading haiku but a babe still when it comes to writing them. Masterfully done
Thank you so much! I started writing them in October and have enjoyed the challenge of conveying a message in so few words. Your comment is encouraging, so thank you again! 🙂
