#C4ward March Blogathon (Day 9): Haiku Sunday expressing art love in brief

CREATIVITY IS OUR BIRTHRIGHT! (art by Hallelujah Truth)
Hallelujah for Haiku Sunday! Hallelujah for forms of expression that ask us to think in different ways and give us permission to play and discover! Today, Day #9 of the #C4ward March Blogathon, we were asked to craft a haiku relating to some aspect of our artmaking (see below for the complete prompt).

Here are two haikus expressing how I feel about creativity and artmaking!

is wondrously our BIRTHRIGHT
Hallelujah TRUTH
TOUCHING THE TRUTH. Dear Readers, I am so deeply in love with the magic that arises in my SOUL, like a Sufi dancer spinning with infinity by staying grounded with the truth to be found living on this beautiful Earth, yet reaching another truth while being a dance partner with heaven. (art by Hallelujah Truth)

FULL gold moon dances
trailing TRUTH, toes touching stars
Breathing being art lived NOW

That's Coffee With Hallelujah! SOUL BLOG with me and share your haiku on my blog! That would be awesome!

C4ward March Blogathon (Day 9) Prompt: Haiku Sunday
When you are in the process of creating your work, how do you feel? What is your experience (mentally, physically, spiritually, emotionally)? Write a Haiku to capture and express this often elusive process.
Tips on writing a Haiku:
  • The most common form for Haiku is three short lines. The first line usually contains five (5) syllables, the second line seven (7) syllables, and the third line contains five (5) syllables.
  • Haiku doesn't rhyme.
  • Haiku is traditionally written in the present tense.
  • A Haiku is generally visual and "paints" a mental image in the reader's mind.
  • Good Haikus are metaphors. They elicit emotions and complex feelings through reference and allusion.
From time to time
The clouds give rest
To the moon-beholders.
- Bashō
The challenge of a Haiku is to express yourself  in ONLY 17 syllables over just three (3) lines of poetry. That said, you are welcome to use whatever variation of the Haiku you come up with. The key is to have FUN!

EXTRAS FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION:  Choose a different font that excites you and adds to the meaning of your Haiku. Increase the font size and change the color. Do you have an image that can accompany your poem or expand it?
