For Dverse Halibun haiku(?)

Published May 23, 2016 by Nan Mykel


Is it too tense, driven, competitive or anxiety-producing to qualify as a past- time that soothes, refreshes and relaxes  and can I lull you gently with it,  sit in nature and rest with you?  I’m not so grandiose to think that Hayes Spencer will even notice. It’s just that I have an ornery streak and when asked to relax that’s when I really get going!

I’ll give it “invigorating” and “challenging” and it often puts me to sleep right at my computer. Does that count? Then too, one of my blogs is “Relief–Refreshing,” which does calm and refresh. Now I’d better get over to it quick before I get stressed thinking about breaking the rules!  (Or whether I’m going to goof up again trying to post to Dverse,)

  • Love your haibun Nan. If you didn’t realise, you did link up successfully. I love the chatty way in it was done. Your first paragraph draws one right in and the comfortable, friendly chat throughout is humorous. The haiku is perfect.

  • You are not the only one to fall asleep at the computer sometimes! 🙂 I like a rebellious streak, and I love your chirpy haiku.
