Haiku: A Day in the Life Sunday

Good Morning! I had a burst of inspiration and decided to switch my mind from the business-y end of the spectrum to the creative-y end of the spectrum and see what I could do with a different style of writing.

Ok, I lied. I didn't think of this on my own. I am committed to developing my skills as a writer and am in the midst of a writing course. One of our assignments, which BTW I am going to complete all of (no matter what it takes), is writing in a different genre. 

For this assignment, I chose haiku simply because I am limited to 17 syllables overall and really, how much damage coud I do in 17 syllables?!

I also chose haiku because every word counts and I tend to write longer-ish thoughts. I can shorten them down and add a little punch to my message - what do you think?

Anyway, no need to delay this any longer so here is my first shot at capturing what I feel when I watch my daughter sleep:

In peaceful slumber
her dreams carry her forward
and further from me.

When I am not HR-ing or sleeping myself:

Moleskine coffee peace
ideas captured so freely
writer at her best

Hey, it's a start! What are you up to this weekend? What are you creating?
