Haiku moments

I've been writing a lot these past few weeks, much of it inspired by writing exercises. One recent exercise asked me to brainstorm random moments and turn them into haikus.

I haven't written one since the third grade but after I got a hang of the 5,7,5 thing, this is what I came up with--

On writing:

Words race fast fast fast faster my mind wakes rushing thoughts pour on paper

On my daughter growing up too fast for my liking:

Every moment

precious moves faster always

slipping through my fingers

And on honesty in writing:

Honest words shared with

strangers are easy because

judgement is withheld
