Give it 100: Poetry and Prose Days 3 – 7 By Giovannah Philippeaux

Oh goodness, who knew writing poetry everyday would be so damn difficult. Sigh as I shake my head. Well I missed a few days and so to make up for it I have written five haikus, of which I am very proud. Now originally I thought that writing a haiku would be the easiest form of poetry to practice (because it is so short) but oh goodness was I mistaken. What I had forgotten is that a haiku must be in the form of 5, 7, 5; meaning three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables. But I tried, and so here are days 3-7.

Day 3:

Gratitude for life
Exhale the glory of God
Praise and cry his name

Day 4:

Wind through the stark home
Away from the hearth that warms
Cries a silent call

Day 5:

Gone are days of joy
Glory no longer lives here
Only pain now reigns

Day 6:

Forgiveness is gone
Glory taken at knife’s edge
Go away they cry

Day 7:

Glorious sunlight
Promised against a dark night
No deliverance
