Haiku: Life vs Nature

RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Challenge #85:

Another interesting word combination for the weekly Haiku challenge from Ronovan.

The words: Tight & Warm



 I’ve used Haiku in the English Form ( 5  /  7/  5 syllables).

The two sentences:
Seasons, warm and cold: ruled by the sky-crossing sun.
Ruled by the sky-crossing sun, our time tightens, spent.


The Opposites: Life vs Nature
The seasons march on but our time on the earthly plane is limited. I’ve been meaning to be more mindful, but I often get to bedtime and wish I had accomplished more in my day. I’m 61 now and the time allotted to me is ever more precious and appreciated. It must not be wasted.

Leaves have begun turning, not waiting for the official March start.  [Nokia Lumia 520: cropped; canvas effect, fake lens flare, and text applied in GIMP.]

  1. Interesting haiku Christine. Thought provoking one and I liked your bit about the time you have and using it wisely etc.
    A minute or hour lost can never be regained can it? But there must be time also for fun and relaxation in busy lives.

    • Oh yes, I never lose time on relaxation, Effy. Even ‘just’ watching a movie with Mr R (we take turns picking one on our Presto subscription) is quality time spent together – and I take notice of plot points and character arcs almost without thinking. I must come over to your blog – right now, while I have a few minutes up my sleeve. 🙂
