Heeding Haiku


from the earth, a tree

leaves fall back to the earth

all is a cycle

Heeding Haiku with Chevrefeuille. Write a haiku based on this quote:

“ Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall.” Confucius

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.

  1. Oh wow! Just yesterday our 26 year old Blue Mountain Ash was felled because it succumbed to an insect and in the same day, a new tree was planted in its place. When I read your words I was astounded! Thank you, Carol!<3
