Haiku Friday –– Time & Grow

15 Jul

Happy Haiku Friday!


Time and Grow are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes. Ron hosts a challenge that anyone could participate in called Ronovan Writes Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge every Monday, and you have until Sunday to create a post featuring your haiku poem. He is an author and poet and also does author interviews and much more on his blog. Be sure to check it out. Read Ron’s Haiku Prompt Challenge Guidelines for more information.

Here’s my contribution for this week’s challenge . . .

Measure time’s advance

Yet the timeless in you knows

Today is tomorrow’s recall

“Time is an illusion.”

~Albert Einstein

“Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away”

~Maya Angelou

Have a wonderful day and remember growth only comes through continuous effort, and effort means work. 😉

    haiku is philosophy and you have created a gem here Vashti. The older one becomes the fate time goes in proportion to your lifespan!!

    Hi Vashti,
    I was wondering if you would be interested in being part of a “Haiku Hub” I am thinking of setting up on my blog. If you would like to be included just let me know in a reply and I will add your blog to the Hub Page. I am hoping to get as many Haiku writers together to share their writing.

      Hello TJ! I’m sorry for the late response. I was offline for a couple of days and am now trying to catch up. I would love to be included. Thank you for thinking of me. Is there anything you require of me?

    They’re all profound, but I always loved Maya’s quote about the breaths we take. ❤

    The last one made me laugh. My husband always says he’d hate for me to work at a job like his because it would steal the color from me. I guess he sees I can’t be normal. 🙂

      Ha, ha! What your husband said was so adorable! I love that. I completely get that too. Even being in the medical field I’m a little out of the ordinary which is okay. 😉 Hugs ❤ Kisses
