Intuition Haiku

Chevrefeuille and Hamish continue exploring the senses in haiku. This episode is about the sixth sense. Not easy to portray this in haiku but they have led us well. Inspiration;

“First a haiku in which I have tried to catch the intuition of an animal, in this case a horse:

as struck by lightning
the horse steps back from the precipice
saves the rider’s life

© Chèvrefeuille

In this haiku the horse saves its rider from dead. Horses are very intelligent and respond in a great way. Is this the horse’s intuition? It’s instinct?

And I have tried to create a haiku in which I hope to catch human intuition:

as struck by lightning
the mother dives into the pond
saves her child

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
