Sometimes the intensity of grief or any struggle in life becomes just too much. It’s time for a breather.
I am part of a wonderful bunch of bloggers called “Personal Bloggers are Us”. One of my fellow writers, Cathy in her ~just my thoughts blog penned a Summer Haiku Moment which immediately got slotted into my “Future Article Ideas” file in the brain vault.
For those who don’t know what Haiku poetry is, essentially it’s a simple verse. Adapted from the Japanese, it comprises of 3 lines of 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively. It usually refers to nature or the seasons in some way.
Today I thought I might write an article full of tips and insights on overcoming adversity. That was until I saw my son’s recent pictures of his trip down south and the haiku moment arrived. I decided Grief Haiku it was for 3 simple reasons:
1) It’s a great picture and speaks volumes
2) Lightheartedness is a healing gift
3) Writing is another
So here it is, in all its simplicity and wisdom and not quite in its truest form…..
When life clobbers you…..
There’s just nothing else for it
But to take a break!
