Clean Slate


Everyone likes a clean slate, a fresh start - to have this we must first have the courage to have nothing. To be ready for change we have to be willing to put everything aside - make room - create a void. There is an innocence to nothing that offers the opportunity for change, growth, knowledge. This (painfully awkward) attempt at haiku addresses this week's prompt from Weekend Wordsmith.

Stark barren nothing
empty of expectation
Hopeful potential

I like it. And I love your blog colors and backgrounds!

Mmmmm does "potential" have three syllables or four? In the South, I think it's four. ;-) Good job though - I need to write more haiku, I've been slacking.

Empty-headed thoughts
of things other than haiku
drift through my small brain.

Okay, I've shot my wad for today.

I'm glad you're so rewardingly busy!
