Life is a busy place.

Tue Oct 21, 2014, 10:31 PM


So I've been taking a bit of an unintentional hiatus, and it's going to continue for the time being. I'm sure I'll still be dropping in here and there to see how things are going, and mostly I have OCD to thank for that. :P Things are going MUCH BETTER, I am happy to say, but I just have a lot of things happening all at once. It's a little overwhelming. So for the moment (hopefully only a week or two), I have to take a step back. (I feel like I owe you a bit of an apology, hopeburnsblue, after you so generously extended my premium...I don't mean to waste it. I really am sorry. :()  I miss you guys, and I promise I'll come back as soon as I can.

I know I have a couple of collaborations in progress - I haven't forgotten! I've been having a really inconvenient bout of writer's block lately, so...yeah. Once it clears, I promise to shoot each of you a note so we can get going! I hate writer's block. By the way.

So, stay awesome. Stay lovely. Stay positive. Stay strong. Stay deviant. All that jazz.

Grief
blisters
your fingers
until they pull
taut over the trigger. They panic, they

slip. You restrain memory to nightmare
and build castles
of carpet
shreds. She
can

not
ever
reach you; your
wood-paneled moat
gouges words. You sweep the splinters away.
Grief
I haven't done a tetractys in a while.

I am patchworking
your gossamer wings
back to blood and glass,

while you scrape palms
to lungs that choke
against a bone cage.

The world keeps breathing
without you, and you
shut your eyes tightly
because it makes you dizzy.

Dizzy is how your legs
trip down the asphalt;
dizzy is how your eyes
drown to sleep; dizzy
is how your chest

spirals misery
through your limbs. I am
patchworking your gossamer wings
back to blood and glass,

but silk always tears.
Patchwork Wings
I love you more than I might ever tell you. :heart: You'll get through it.


:iconglory-be-project: Getting close to the end of the year! We're getting there!

You may think
your soul
slashed;

I assure you,
it is but bruised.

Your rose petals
will bleach red
back to pink;
your veins
will sing red
back to blue.

Your heart
pumps rust
and iron.

That must be
why your will
is so strong.

Recycled Haiku Contest RESULTS!

Mon Oct 6, 2014, 7:57 PM
For our September event here at Multhaiku, we challenged you to convert, or recycle, one of your poems into a haiku. We received a whopping thirty-one entries from twenty contestants--what a turnout! We had a lot of fun reading and judging your responses and are excited to be announcing the results!

First Place



WinteroftheSoul challenges artists--not to push themselves farther, necessarily, but to understand and face with head held high the daunting feeling that accompanies an artistic blockage. Being an artist is scary at times--wild ideas hit out of nowhere, your fingers itch for a pencil at the MOST inconvenient times, and the mess--don't EVEN think about the mess! But being an artist means getting past this, knowing art is your passion, and going for it...and that means, as this haiku by WinteroftheSoul so astutely deduces, being an artist even when it's difficult. Face the blockage head-on! You'll get through it.
-- TwilightPoetess


Second Place



In my mind, everystupidstar has a serious knack for two things: imagery and speaking to the human condition. Both of these are most definitely accomplished in her recycled haiku. I think the best way to describe this piece are in her own words: "I think that people are a bit like magpies in that they hold onto things when they can no longer hold onto each other." If you have never checked out her work, please do so! You will get lost in the imagery, get lost in the observations on human nature, and you most definitely will not be disappointed.
-- haphazardmelody


Third Place



This haiku beautifully and aptly captures, through snapshot-like imagery, the nostalgia for times of innocence and wonder expressed in its parent poem and is one that, doubtless, many will relate to..</blockquote-- hopeburnsblue 


Honorable Mentions

You guys rock. Some of your submissions made us laugh, others made us think, and others still pulled our heartstrings. Thank you for sharing your recycled haiku with us and making this contest such a success!

For you I will dance and sing
Who does that make me?

Sharp separation
I haven't known it for ages

He trembles with emotions,
Flowing out the cracks.

We are condemned to steep pains,
Waiting for recognition.

Calmed then set and wrapped with love
I can’t fly away now

His photo hidden within
An unlocked phone

gravity spell that whispers
of stars, and moonlit secrets.

Until I get thrown away,
A piece of garbage.

from the brushing of leaves,
with the air from our songs

Thoughts released, rise, diffuse as
Champagne in a flute.

Elegy (haiku)distance grows
through time and space . . .
         flames flicker


the fall of the last monarchy (reworked)butterfly promise
weighs the feather wind, no less
than the plight he is.


Nightmare (Haiku Version)Betrayed, running, scared,
Bleeding wounds that never close:
Insanity calls.


She was a fox and he a bear (Haiku Version)Strong bear and sly fox
One crafting and one selling
Happy on the road.


Boom-Lag High (Recycled Haiku Edit)Alone;
