Slaves of time

Writer's Dream

We are slaves of time,
for our scars will reflect our past
while our wounds will ache
till we tend to them.

We are slaves of time,
forever in debt with our master.
Devouring our will to lash back,
there’s no escape from her jaws.

We are slaves of time,
slowly guiding each other to our sure end.
For she brought out all the dirt
exposing the shadow we barely knew.

Dear friends of MLMM,

Finally it is spring here at The Netherlands. As I look around me I see all kinds of blossoms bloom for example cherry blossoms, but I also see Magnolia bloom in almost every garden in my neighborhood. This gives me really a spring feeling and I love it.

This week’s theme for Heeding Haiku With is Magnolia (Kobushi), it is a kigo (seasonword) for spring. Maybe you know that haiku uses kigo to point to the season in which the haiku was written.


Here I have an example written by myself last year (2016):

one of its branches scattered –
on the credenza

And another one I wrote back in 2014:

an empty vase –
without hesitation
I cut the Magnolia

Well … I think I have given you enough inspiration for this week’s…

One-Liner Wednesday – Elvis has left the … ladies’ restroom?

Possibly the funniest thing about this picture is the looks I got when I came out of the bathroom stall: I couldn’t turn the shutter sound off on my phone camera.
