Haiku Friday – Fragile & Heartbeat

25 May

I’m happy to say that I’m done with my first round of edits for Son of the Serpent (WIP). I feel good about the book and I’m getting ready to send it out to my beta readers. I can’t wait to hear/read their input. Then I’ll revise the book once more, before sending it off to my editor. So things are moving along.

Today, there are men working on the “curve appeal” of my house. Well, these guys are breaking up the existing tiles and cement, to prepare the foundation for new pavers and landscaping. I’m excited that we’re finally getting some work done to the outside of the house, but you can imagine the ear-splitting  cacophony of power tools, men shouting and my dog, Scribbles barking. I know this is work that has to be done, so I’ll just have to grin and bear it.

I’m also preparing for my trip to Japan in August. I would like everything, including the publication of my book, to be done before I go but I’m not going to hold my breath.

Thank you for stopping by. I hope you enjoy the poetry. Have a wonderful day!

My fragile heartbeat

I shall always remember

Your breath on my skin

Fires of love doused with blood

My sweet love draws breath no more

Vengeance shall be mine

I have a heart that does not

know how to forgive

Haiku Friday – Obsession & You

4 May

Love Obsession

You are one white rose

In a field of red roses

I only see you

I create a mist

That only envelops you

The sun clears the haze

I reach out for you

But your thorns are long and sharp

Still I grab ahold

A thorn pierces through my heart

I perish wearing a smile

Obsession and You are this week’s prompt words chosen by Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes.
