Inspiration is hard...

I'm now on day 22 on my Haiku a Day streak and let me tell you, inspiration is hard. Some days it just pops right in, other days, you really have to work hard for it.

Like the day my daughter asked me in the car how Dragon tastes, or the day I stepped into our office to the smell of toast. Other days, like today, nothing wants to work and I ended up writing a little ode to Inspiration itself.

Still, I am thoroughly enjoying the challenge, and plan to keep working on this till I can't pull seventeen syllables out of my brain to save my life!

Wish me luck!

A poem a day?

So as a challenge to myself I have decided to write one poem a day.
Trying to keep it simple/real I decided that I'll try and write in the Haiku form. 17 syllables seems like a reachable goal for one day, every day.

So far I have managed to go 6 for 6 in the last few days. Woohoo!

Interested in reading my effort?
Here you go... Haiku from the Heart
Enjoy! And do let me know what you think.
