Haiku



As pure as water,
Jenny follows life’s flows,
A feathered fairy.
.
To do all justice,
One has to be far-sighted,
Show no white feathers.

  11. White feathers were given to 'cowards' during WWI. I haven't heard the expression or sentiment in a long time.

  28. I wish I remembered more often to follow life's flow. It sounds so easy, but it's a hard, hard thing to do.

  29. I agree with Stacia on this.

    Your poetry is wonderful!!!

  30. I am so often fearful of letting the flow of life push and pull me along. Will I be torn asunder on the stones of heartache?...or broken on the rapids of drama I cannot control?

    This was a beautiful piece of writing.

    Your imagery is powerful.

    Thank you for linking to Alphabe-Thursday's letter "W".

    This was wonderful.

    A+
