About Me

My Blog SCRIBBLE AND EDIT reflects my love of creative writing, design, literature and film. Check out my Poems & haiku, Romantic Flash Fiction; Blogfest Entries; Blog Awards and other prose and Flash Fiction. Do bear with me, as I will reciprocate with those genuine commenters on my blog.  BTW I sometimes withhold comments for challenges until later. Comments about the post are much appreciated. Thank you.
Comments based on others' comments can lead to misunderstandings that spread like whispers!

The only SURE way for me to follow you back is if you leave a comment. However, if your Blog has a black background and white writing then it makes my eyes squiffy...

Joy Haiku

Check out http://www.youknowthatblog.com/ weekly's challenge.

This week's theme: JOY

Sometimes I search for images and then write the haiku, othertimes, like today, I write the haiku and then find the images to fit them. Poems should be able to stand alone without illustration, but I love to illustrate my posts. These haiku should also stand alone without the images.


Thrilling sensations
The colour of happiness
To lift up the soul
Joy, peace, harmony
A season of such goodwill
Love and hope preside.
Soaring through the sky
Lifting our spirits cloudwards
As light as the air

The wonder of Joy
A current of excitement
Blossoming within.

Cute kitty meows
Please come play with me, he says
My heart melts with joy.

I prefer to write haiku where each line is a separate stand alone sentence rather than an enjambent into the next line. What do you think?

Sorry I've been neglected blogland these past 2 days. I've had migraines like someone attaching electrodes to my scalp and then pulling them upwards or like walking under an electricity pylon. I ended up having to lie quietly in a darkened room for agess or else they'd come back!
