Haiku Friday – Wait & Move

Welcome to Haiku Friday . . .

RonovanWrites Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt Challenge #31

Taking on the challenge one more week, prompt words Wait & Move 




by Vashti Quiroz-Vega

I was moved by you

Your love proved ephemeral

why do I still wait



Do you have plans for Valentine’s Day? If so, what are you doing? Is Valentine’s Day just another day for you?

    Very good, but sad, although I guess most people have wondered that at some point. Doing nothing special. I Hope you have a good day

      Hello Olga! Thank you! It’s symbolic of that searing, wrenching pain one feels when one’s heart is broken. 🙂 I had a sweet and peaceful Valentine’s Day surrounded by love––what more can you ask for? Did you get a book and a rose? ❤

    It’s not normally just another day for us, but this year, since we are traveling and admittedly quite tired tonight, we are doing nothing but watching tv, eating leftovers and catching up on my favorite blogs ;).

      Hi Doreen! I love it that you’re having a blast on your travel adventure. Like I told April, Valentine’s Day doesn’t always have to be a big production. You were with your hubby and you were having fun. That’s all that counts. I’m glad my blog is one of your favorites. I feel the same about yours. 😀 xx

    Um, I skeered now. Running away. Okay, shuffling away as fast as I can.

      Hi Ron! Ha, ha! Don’t be so skittish. 😉 I don’t bite . . . unless I’m hungry. No––seriously, I imagine that heartbreak can feel like this for some people. :p

    Up early to move
    To see that I have to wait
    For Valentine show

    LOL! Lame…. ! We didn’t do anything. We rented a movie, but didn’t watch it because I didn’t get home from church until 8:30 and then my husband cooked then. By the time he was done, I was exhausted and sick!

      Love it! I used to be intimidated by haiku poetry but now I love it. It seems that the more you write the better you get at it. Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be a big production every year. As long as you’re with your loved ones––I think that’s what’s important. I went on a picnic with my husband and mom. Ha, ha! I had a good time. We were at a beautiful place and it was very relaxing. 🙂

    Great work, Vashti. You have a real talent for Haiku. Your words really resonate, and are beautifully written.
