In the past…

Yes, I post in the past. Every so often I open a sketch book, old journal, etc., and find a haiku or other bit of doggrel laying there. So I use the scheduling tool in WordPress, just one of the many reasons I love WordPress, as a time machine and post that find in the time it would have gone on one of my earlier but now long defunct blog sites.

Just in case you were wondering, ‘Why am I just getting this notice now?’.

The poetry of life

Life has its own meter and rhythm…
composing itself into haiku, and odes
pacing itself, stately and oh so slow,
then childishly ignoring what bodes.

Rushing at times without apology
or angry, weeping, open heart bleeding,
painful moments expressed in eulogy,
changing tempo, closing crescendo.

Life in its own meter and rhythm…

Something new, something old…

Woohoo!! I just changed domains, kind of, to http://haikujourney.com for this blog – that’s something new. The something old is that https://taohobo.wordpress.com will still work and it’ll simply redirect to haikujourney.com.

As a blogger, you’ve gotta love WordPress and the tools, support, training, etc. that make it so easy to have a great blog (Ok, I’m still working on my part of that. lol 😀 )

So now I have a blog site that matches the name of my blog, makes more sense to people, will make it easier to find – in other words all the things you don’t want to have to constantly worry about while you’re trying to create content for the blog. And these are all things I may have never done if I hadn’t spent a great month with @michelleweber, @supernovia, @jeremylduvall on Blogging 101, and with @benhuberman, @lettergrade on Writing 201 and all of the bloggers, writers, and poets that were my “classmates”.

Love In Ten Sentences

I was selected by Terry (@TerryB) whose blog, Through The Lens Of My Life, is well worth exploring to write something for the “Love in Ten Sentences” event. OK. Ten lines, four words each, each line including the word love, and then include a favorite love quote… let’s see how I do…

Love, where are you?
Oh to find Love
Velvet soft Love touch
Insanely crazy laughing Love
Nobody knows our Love
Giving you my Love
You fuel my Love
Overflowing limits of Love
Use me my Love
!Loving You my Love!

And the quote I’m sharing is by Paul of Tarsus, taken from The Message (1 Corinthians 13:13).

“But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.”

I’m inviting the following talented bloggers/poets to share their thoughts on love! For some, it will be a different step out if they accept it but diamonds need to have many facets in order to sparkle. So, because their blogs are worth visiting whether they accept the challenge or not, here’s the lineup…

Julie – (Re)Turn

Camille – Love Yourself Again

David – David Veliquette

Shreyarvj – The Open Window

Impossiblebebong – My Own Private Idaho

Andrea – Butterfly Mind

Johna – Wind Against Current

David – There Is No Calvary

Tyler – The ancient eavesdropper

Jonathan – Tiny Camels

You – and this includes you who are reading this – are under no obligation to accept this challenge to participate, but if you would like to share your thoughts on love, here are the guidelines:

  • Title a post: Love in Ten Sentences
  • Use ten lines
  • Four words per line
  • Include the word love in each line
  • Add your favorite quote on love
  • List and contact (challenge?) ten, or so, bloggers to share their thoughts on love
  • Include links to their blog and instructions on how to participate
  • Have fun sharing the love!
