COMPLETE 2013

February 28th, 2013

Dire desperation
A feeble whimper for help;
roar of these raw times.


February 27th, 2013

Gluttonous ash cloud
sucks the moon's blood
and swallows the night.


February 26th, 2013

Bark! An explosion!
Angry bodies escape the
network of lung cells.


February 25th, 2013

Silently cloning,
multiplying, honing in,
determined to kill.


February 24th, 2013

Tea and sympathy
readily available
for my dear sister.


February 23rd, 2013

I will hold my breath
as the north wind does the same
waiting for your love.


February 22nd, 2013

He hovers behind;
Hamletian apparition.
Always following.


February 21st, 2013

A long slow curve,
your smile upon my shoulder,
a scar of your touch.


February 20th, 2013

Dandelion seed,
Where do you go while I sleep?
To whom do you run?


February 19th, 2013

Whorls from fingers
Imprinted in the trees
Count their rings too.


February 18th, 2013

Orchid explodes.
Sudden fragmented flora;
everything is lost.


February 17th, 2013

Inorexibly
changed, we both leave scathed
with our scars of love.


February 16th, 2013

The poem in kohl
written on my cheekbones;
admits I miss you.


February 15th, 2013

A violent God
Throws sand at an earth full of
Disobedience.


February 14th, 2013

In the white spaces
between the words and phrases;
I can speak my love.


February 13th, 2013

The silent click clack
of outstretched limbs creeping
closer. Spiders suck.


February 12th, 2013

The pale buddleja
flushes lilac in the sun;
tiny burning cheeks.


February 11th, 2013

Ugly, unwanted,
Unnoticed dirt. The soil
nurtures all life.


February 10th, 2013

Like glitter tossed
Unceremoniously
They illuminate.


February 9th, 2013

Dead stars shine brighter
In the loneliness of space.
We fill the vacuums.


February 8th, 2013

Dusted with silver
The ghost specter turns. Nothing.
Nothing, without you.


February 7th, 2013

Push my thumbs in
to your Aortic valve;
pull the beat right out.


February 6th, 2013

A dead sun rises;
An unlikely red thumbprint
On the blemished sky.


February 5th, 2013

A kiss thrust onto
the sharp blade of his shoulder.
Stabbed in the back.


February 4th, 2013

The ballerina
slips off her tutu backstage
but pirouettes again.


February 3rd, 2013

She wishes with ink;
Autobiographical
fictions of her life.


February 2nd, 2013

Your metronome heart
regulates my anxious breath
as I grasp for sleep.


February 1st, 2013

Half apricot moon
thrums behind the Indigo;
Yearning for our love.
Haikuwrimo
A challenge throughout Feb to write a haiku every day.

For Haikuwrimo I will be using the standardised 5-7-5 format but I am aware that this is not an essential element for haiku. I just like the specifics of that challenge. More info about haiku here. Generally it is said that haiku are about things from the natural world, but the definition of natural world is much broader than the Western version. I will be going with that also.

Hope you guys get involved too!

Feb 1: The moon trying to shine through cloud.
Feb 2: My dog's heartbeat calming me down when I'm trying to ignore a panic attack to get some sleep
Feb 3: Human girl writing poetry (me) :]. I remembered that the traditional haiku should have some kind of juxtaposition in it, so I was focusing on that today. Hence autobiographical fictions.
Feb 4: A water lily in a pond losing its petals.
Feb 5: Redefining stabbing someone in the back. About kissing someones shoulder.
Feb 6: how the sun looked this morning (didnt have time to post it til now)
Feb 7: Heart break
Feb 8: The world turning under starlight, feeling lonely.
Feb 9: Stars
Feb 10: Stars again
Feb 11: Soil, idk. The unsung hero?
Feb 12: Buddleja plants with tiny little heads.
Feb 13: SPIDERS SUCK
Feb 14: Poetry
Feb 15: The meteor strike in Russia. (Please note this isn't my personal believe, just an idea)!
Feb 16: mascara on the face from crying
Feb 17: pain. le sigh!
Feb 18: My grandmothers death
Feb 19: The similarity of fingerprints and wood grain
Feb 20: Random thoughts of summer days.
Feb 21: Scars
Feb 22: Feeling haunted by something / someone from my past. New Word!: Hamletian (Said Ham-Lee-She-An) meaning, with traits recognisable from Hamlet (the play). In this case, ghostly. Could also be used to mean Like Hamlet the character in Hamlet.
Feb 23: Hope in the face of bitter storms.
Feb 24: My sister's birthday (and cake!)
Feb 25: Cancer
Feb 26: Coughing.
Feb 27: Thinking about that ash cloud in Iceland a few years ago. Ash swallowing the sky.
Feb 28: Self harm awareness day tomorrow. Just thinking.

Hmm... Making your own words, using Non-Western definitions of "Natural World" yet using Western-styled Haiku structure...
I commend the originality, but I fear for the conservatives among us....

"Old" is as relative as time itself. Same with color, but that's a different story.
As far as this "Splash" of yours... might want to tone down the arm-flailing... last time I checked, we had a few tsunamis.
(Humor aside: You are doing a great job! [As far as I have seen so far. Most of it has been holding interesting conversation with you instead of reading what you have posted.])

February 17, line one should be 'inexorably'.

I tend to comment before reading other people's comments. :)

But I still prefer 'inexorably'; it's easier to pronounce. But not much. :D
And it means something to everybody who reads a dictionary, so that's a benefit.

BloodshotInk Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2013
Perhaps but the dictionary always needs new words.

They have to be invented to get into common usage! Shakespeare made up thousands of words that's how language evolves

Please help me understand the meaning of "Inorexibly". I've looked it up, but can find no definition. All Google (et al) will give me is "inexorably".
Reply
:iconbloodshotink:
BloodshotInk Featured By Owner Feb 23, 2013
I often create new words or bend old words, I have a dictionary on my website of the words I've made up but it only includes words that I've made up from the small amount of my work thats uploaded there, so its very incomplete. :giggle:

Inorexibly is very similar to Inexorably, "Inexorable" meaning impossible to prevent, "Inorexibly" kind of means, impossible to prevent fundamental changes to the core of something, in this instance a person. I was thinking about the word ore, like stones, being the broken down core of something. In this instance the word isnt very dissimilar to its original usage, do you think I should just ditch the new word?

I think as long as you can defend your use of a word, and this was a good defense, I wouldn't change a thing. You obviously put a lot of thought into it; that's admirable and original.

Uh, second line of February 13 (Spiders Suck): I think you're missing a syllable? Unless you intend to read the "-ed" as a syllable? As in out-stretch-ed as opposed to "out-stretch'd"?
Reply

Hmm in my accent that word is said like

out stretch d

rather than

out stretchd
