Haiku Cubed

1. Avoiding Then Enter The Stream

Cold water born-bred,
wife warmed me, warmer with kids,
grandkids even more.

2. Awakening From Cheerleader Fantasies

Imprisoned deep in
Five Hindrances – illicit

3. Goet

open up.

Open. Candid Haiku about Everyday Life

by Z.E. Frey

 “There were “aha!” moments (It looks nice from here/ But I’m seeing piles of bills/Envy fades away) and moments of recognition (In order to grow /I must learn how to forgive/Damn. That’s a challenge.). Some of the haiku just beg to be copied on a post-it and stuck to my mirror (Eyes are like fire/When you speak arrows of truth/Killing the slander.)… Frey’s authentic voice is perhaps the best part. She shows so many individual facets of her mind and heart that she creates a wonderful mosaic of herself. “Open” is definitely worth the time to read. I suspect I will reread it.”

~Gail Sosinsky Wickman for Readers’ Favorite
