Ocean of Knowing

This could very well be an embarrassment but I am learning that facing fears is pretty liberating so here I go taking on this week’s Weekly Challenge by The Daily Post:

“Your mission is to write five haikus β€” one for each of the five days leading up to this Friday when we will choose some entries and feature them on Freshly Pressed.”

I have zero experience with haiku so,Β Brenda, if you’re reading, please be kind. haha!

Ocean deep and wide,

Endless knowing swirls below,

Compass inside leads.

  2. The first time I read the haiku you wrote for this post, I thought “oh, that was nice :)”. I was going to leave a comment saying as much but wandered around the blog a bit first; I am very glad I did. After gaining some perspective about what you write, how you write, and why, the second reading of your haiku was on a completely different level from the first reading. For me, it became an expression of the Ocean as an archetypal image for the unconscious Self instead of simply a viewing of great water, and the experience was beautiful. Thank you very much for posting ❀ ❀ I look forward to hopefully reading other haiku you compose for the Weekly Writing Challenge πŸ™‚
