Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, March 15th 2017 choices


When one door closes, one opens
When the moon sets, rises the sun
We find what’s next to our action
With our problems, we can do tons
Lots of choices, which one to choose
And with that choice, sometimes we lose
Don’t despair, make the most of it
With determination and grit
Either swim with the flow or quit
Do what we can with all our wit
Cooperate or not, our choice
Let the others hear our own voice
Action, reaction, that follows
Highs or lows, we pay what we owe
Time carries on, even we doze
All these years, we have friends or foes
We have to keep our doors open
We can have fun, perhaps, we won

When the world seems black
And it’s not going our way
Fear not, there is hope

  1. I really love this! You have a really smooth feel to your rhyme scheme, I love the rhythm of your piece too. Your ending Haiku is so beautifully simple, well done!

  2. Lovely poem leading to your haiku…I like rhythm of your poetry. Definitely there is always hope…once we have the courage to let go of one part of our life, the door opens to new beginnings.
