#AtoZChallenge ‘E is for Elsa’ #Haiku #NaPoWriMo #PoetryMonth

 

Elsa

Nimble limbs sway forth,

Gliding over wave swept sand.

Step into your dreams!

****

This year is my fourth AtoZ Challenge. My theme this year is poetry once again. I’ll be writing a haiku a day, but I’m also adding a new hobby to the posts, photography. I will post one of my photos, or a donated photo, every day to accompany my haiku.

This April, I’ll also be sharing my poems and joining another group of poets at National Poetry Writing Month, organised since 2003 by Maureen Thorsonn. Write 30 poems in 30 days. I’m in! What about you?

#AtoZChallenge ‘C is for Clouds’ #Haiku #NaPoWriMo #PoetryMonth

Heavy clouds scowl, while
Empty sunbeds wait for the 
Storm before the calm.

#SixWordSaturday Every Cloud Has A Silver Lining #haiku

 

Chasing silver clouds,

Racing over clear blue skies.

Enjoy the challenge.

****

I was thinking about this well-known saying a few days ago as I was walking under a cloudy sky.

Cloudy skies not only bring silver linings, but they’re also more beautiful and inspiring than clear blue skies. In fact, a clear blue sky is enhanced by the presence of beautiful clouds, which are always unique.

Life is like that too. Living within our comfort zone is pleasant and safe, but it’s the moments we move out of this peaceful serenity that life moves on to a more challenging and exciting place where we feel energised.

It would be exhausting to live in a constant state of excitement, but the rush of the challenge undeniably leads to personal and professional growth. Striking the balance between comfort and challenge is the key.

How do you balance living within your comfort zone and challenging yourself?
