#NaHaiWriMo

Hello and welcome to February, the shortest month of the year so it makes sense to have it also be the month to write short poetry forms. I wrote and submitted my three haiku to the azmatsuri haiku contest. I did not make it into last year’s ebook; we’ll see if I fare better this year. Over the weekend Shawn and I took another overnight camping trip at the White Tank Mountains Regional Park.

Take sunset selfie
Going for pandemic look
Did I pull it off?

Camp out overnight
Breathtaking desert vista
Looks picture perfect

Resting on Mesquite Trail White Tank Regional Park

View stretches for miles
Yet, it is never enough
to see the future

Morning exercise
How long have we been hiking
Time to sit and rest

According to my husband I was sitting on a corner in Waddell, Arizona. I told him, I’m quite sure I’m in the wrong song (and town) 😉

This weekend is the opening of the Exotic show at the Alwun House and of course Valentine’s day. Last year, Shawn took the day off for the show opening and we spent the afternoon in downtown Phoenix. Close to our last outing together before the shutdown.

How long has it been
Since we could go out maskless
Feels like a lifetime

Happy Valentine’s Day

 

I heard Shawn playing this clip this morning. I thought I would give him a Valentine’s day poem to match.

Men read poems and duck
fervent
women release heavy objects

Honestly it’s not my fault, the #haikuchallenge word is release. My tweet was –

Tangled between sheets
beast with two backs in search of
climactic release

Actually these are not far off of previous Valentine’s Day poetry.

Don’t you just feel the love between us. 😉 Shawn did make me a nice cup of coffee before he left for work today. ❤
