Soul searching


in madness

inhale life’s folly


at dawn

shapes last stanzas


on oneself

outlast waning emotions


dreams grieve

until luster dazzles


inner recluse

flourish amid moments

The Saturday Symphony #38 April Apathy

Ponderous thought prompt.

For the month of May, do some research, or draw from experience, a way in which you’ve got someone who is seemingly apathetic, to open up.

affected by, characterized by, or displaying apathy having or showing little or no interest, concern, or emotion

Hay(na)ku – Writer’s Digest

In a traditional Hay(na)ku, there are:

A tercet: 3 lines.

A total of 6 words: 1 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 3 in the third line.

There is no restriction on syllables or stressed or rhymes.


In the ‘reverse’ haynaku, the longest line is placed first and the shortest last. The total is still 6 words: 3 in the first line, 2 in the second line, and 1 in the third line.

Multiple hay(na)ku can be chained to form a longer poem.

  1. Ah… a reminder that I am behind on Jude’s last prompt…

    Anyway… Nice pairing with WDYS –
    A lighthouse has always been a sign of hope. A local dentist in our area – that’s his ‘symbol’

    There are many ways to reach out, but I seem to be less tollerant for those who insist on ignoring respect of persons or property. Like those who think they are entitled or those who still teach prejuice (of any number of differences).
