Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!

It's that time again - Sensational Haiku Wednesday! Are you tired of it? I just love it! My one complaint about poetry is that I hate rhyming! I hate rhythm. (Perhaps because I don't have any?) But a haiku? A haiku challenges me to say in 17 syllables; no more, no less. For a woman who tends to run at the mouth, this is a good thing.

This week's theme was FORTITUDE. To be honest, I didn't know what it meant, so I had to look it up. According to FreeDictionary.com it means, "Strength of mind that allows one to endure pain or adversity with courage." I'm not sure my haiku exactly meets the definition, but to me it's fortitude.

Be sure to pop over to Jenn's blog to read other fabulous haikus!

Young. Naïve, maybe.
Mistakes made repeatedly
Lesson learned? Hardly.

Children. One then two.
Young parents. Young offspring.
Equals disaster.

Where is wedding bliss?
Where is perfect family life?
Someone lied to me!

Overtime, things change.
Young parents become wiser.
Couple grows closer.

Slowly, life is good.
Eventually, it’s right.
Happy ending?

Secure and loving.
Respect. Maturation grow.
Finally, it’s right.
