“Don’t get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life.”― Dolly Parton
To some extent, that’s what happened during my unexpected two month hiatus from blogging. Since I am self employed, at the end of the day, everything falls into my lap. Luckily, work has been good. Busy. And that’s why I needed to concentrate moreso on work and a little less on my extracurricular activities. Plus, there is a part of me that cringes just a little every time I sign in and see “Battered Wife Seeking Better Life”. Blech. So depressing.
That being said, I’ve been missing you. My blogging community, writing, and reading your work. I had some free time today and decided to catch up with my haiku family and do some writing. It’s hard to believe I ended on Challenge #71 and on Monday, Challenge #80 will be posted. When I sat down this morning, I wasn’t sure if I’d have the desire to write a haiku – let alone eight of them – but it is just like riding a bike. I hope you enjoy.

Find hope for some, while others
Use healing crystals.

Bringing us the vast heavens,
With great clarity.

Sing daily to soothe your pain,
Just cover your ears.

Love will melt your heart.

The wolf in sheep’s clothes,
Seeking to devour your soul,
And finish with cake.
Challenge #73 – Prompts: Black & White
Those who only see,
Everything in black and white,
Miss out on rainbows.

Behold the wonder,
Life given from another,
Taken for granted.
When I signed in today, I didn’t realize it’s been exactly two months since my last post. Thank you, Ronovan, for saving my place.
