This Week's theme: LIVING
A drop of water ~
Something living emerges
~Through nurturing soil.

Country Living Mag~

Selling us an old lifestyle~

All quaint and rustic.

A newborn baby~
Struggling into the world~

Clinging onto life.
Living, make it count ~
Taking measured risks each day~
Live life to the full.


  1. Another pleasurable plethora of perfect haikus. I love the baby one!! Awwww! Yay! take care

  2. I particularly loved that last one. I should make it my mantra :)

  3. "taking measured risks"; isn't that what life is all about? Great haikus this week!

  4. I liked all three haikus, but the first one is specially close to my heart.

  5. Great job. I think about the child clinging to life and actually all of us for that matter. How often we see people clinging to life. The last phrase I think is also important. It is like writing and turning in the query. It is so important to take those MEASURED risks.

  6. I like the 'Country Living' one. :)

  7. The baby one made me sniffle. My son was in the NICU for weeks, so I truly appreciate a baby's will to fight for life. Great Haiku!

  8. "Live life to the full"... often easier said than done. But we try anyway! :)

  9. I really see life in seedlings. I am a horrible thinner/pruner because of that.

  10. Profusion of Haiku -- well done!

  11. Love these! Very well done, and exactly what I was looking for with "living" :) Nice!
