Enjoy the Podcast

I was thinking about different possible post ideas and I came across the idea of writing a Haiku. I knew it was some type of a short poem, but I did not know exactly what a Haiku was. During my search for Haiku, I came across this website, Haiku Poetry, and was really intrigued by what a Haiku is I wanted to give it a shot and see how I do it for my very first Haiku. By the way, I do recommend looking at that website I found, it gives you a brief explanation, not too long, of what a Haiku is, and of course, it provides a lot of examples. So, without further ado, please take a look at my first Haiku.

Unrelenting Winter:
My life is frozen in Time,
Yet all is constant.

This was a lot tougher than it looks. I probably did way too much thinking about the word choices and it’s possible that my Haiku did not come out, all that naturally. I was overthinking, trying to get the right words that had the right breath for each of the three lines for what I thought I wanted to say. Not sure how I did, but I guess with any kind of poetry, you really cannot go wrong – right. Here is another example.

Anyways I do appreciate that you stopped by to check out my first Haiku, and you know what, I would really like it if you could take a moment out of your day and let me know what you think about my Haiku. Please feel free to leave either a compliment, criticism or a brief thought about what I wrote and maybe what you think I meant – all comments are welcomed. With that, I leave you with a famous Haiku, from that website I found Haiku Poetry.

My life, –
How much more of it remains?
The night is brief.

Strange but true, I was born in San Salvador, as an abroad US citizen. It sounds strange, but you see, my mother was 5 months pregnant and happen to be visiting San Salvador. She slipped and fell in a pool and well, I was born. I am a twin, but unfortunately, he did not make and I did. My mother’s side of the family happens to be well of, and I had the opportunity to live a nice life early in my childhood. You know, private school, servant, nice home, and vacations. Things change when my mother decided to follow my father to the United States and well, that is where my story begins. I started a blog a while back, but life sort of hit and I left it behind, but now as I am a bit older, I decided I needed an avenue to share my experiences with others, while at the same time allowing me to open up and talk like I am on someone’s couch, I guess you could say. This blog will be more like an open book, created by experiences that I have had throughout my life. Experiences that many could relate to and what I did or how I handled it, you know after the fact. You never know there just might be a piece of information, idea, an option that someone could use and it would help them through the experience. Just remember these are my experiences, things I have been through, work through, and lived through – it does not mean I am right, but it does not mean I am wrong – it is simply an experience.
