Pondering on Haiku

Jenn at www.youknowthatblog.com has set this week's challenge word as Ponder


Blank, virgin pages
Pondering how to begin
Novel ideas, pause.

Life's cycle through words
Absorbing concentration
Pen poised on paper

Inspiration sought
Freeing the mind to create
Nature's stimulant


I've had a guest staying over the weekend, which was lovely but I was poorly, which was crap and I've been struggling with faulty technology and fighting bureaucracy. So that is why I've been pretty quiet in blogland earlier this week.
My fancy Smartphone is in for repair, my ADSL filter has been replaced, Hoorah!
BUT the bureauocrats are winning on the battles front so far! Poo!
Hope you've all had satisfying weeks.

I haven't forgotten to award the Talli fest prizes. Will announce those on Friday.


Oh and don't forget to check out my BLOGFEST


For those of you reading this on Thursday.
HAPPY THANKSGIVING.
Thank you to all my new followers and my existing followers

  4. Pondering can be so frustrating too when faced with that blank paper or screen. Nice use of the prompt!

  5. A large blank piece of paper can be so daunting ... and if it remains blank -- the daunting looms!! Hope you are feeling better!

  8. Haiku is fun to write. I remember one I wrote when the Detroit Lions (my team!) went 0-16 a few years back regarding their quarterback....
