This week Ronovan’s prompt words are Vast and Clear let’s see, what can I come up with…. tricky… I’m feeling melancholy today, not a usual state for me, but one that often follows the aftermath of all the Christmas festivities. I tend to be prone to a large dollop of the New Year blues!
Instead of fighting against this like I usually do I thought it might be interesting to try to focus on this sense of sadness and despair because like an actor, an author has to get into role and use feelings to good effect!
I intend to utilise this in some of my New Year writing so please do forgive the less humorous approach! Kyrosmagica blog is all about the lightness and darkness in life, in my experience both go hand in hand, and the interplay between the two fascinate me.
I’ve called my miserable haiku Nothing New, Kills Me.
I made a mistake when writing this I thought the prompt words were vast and new instead of vast and clear so apologies Ronovan, I’ve edited most of the haikus with the word clear!!
Nothing New, Kills Me
Your words lodge bitter,
Vast oceans of clear sadness,
Nothing new, kills me.
New heartbreak lodges,
Vast cruel, unsurmountable.
Terrors playing friends.
A new morning comes,
Light Trickling through clear windows,
Whispering vast nonsense.
New and old mingle,
Clear, lengthy fragments, spoken,
New light promises,
Vast, clear, illuminating,
Ruin of darkness.
New guilty footsteps,
Clear no one will find me love,
Vast oceans away.

Hope you liked the angst laden haiku! I feel a lot better, writing sad haiku is so therapeutic… enough melodrama for one day, now it’s time to do the washing…
Bye for now,
