At the big book signing event at Chapter’s Shawnessy in South West Calgary on March 21st (an event so big that there were 14 authors present, including my own hubby, Neil, with his book A Warrior’s Heart: The Awakening – more on his book at www.awarriorsheart.ca ) I had the privilege of hearing 3 authors from the group that calls themselves the Magpie Poets speak.
They were delightfully entertaining, informative and inspirational! I not only bought their book Weathered Wings, an Anthology of Poetry (a lovely collection of Haiku and Tanka poems) I was inspired to write some Haiku of my own the very next day!
Here are a couple of my little poetic expressions, in the form of non-traditional Haiku:
Unseen for so long
Heart bursts with Joy
Information and passion
And a couple that I wrote on Saturday, attempting to follow the traditional 5/7/5 structure:
Boots crunching on snow
Glistening in the sunlight
Feeling so Alive!
Sipping my mint tea
I watch my naked man bathe
My heart overflows
I hope you enjoy these and are inspired to try some of this 3 line poetry for yourself!
