30 DAY HAIKU CHALLENGE DAY 30 - Themadrunnah's reflection / An original poem

in haiku •  2 years ago  (edited)

Ahah! I have finally finished @brokemancode's thirty day haiku challenge!

Struggled a good bit with motivation around two-thirds of the way in, withdrew from Steemit and most social things around then, as is usual for me. I get a little too stressed due to real life at times and it's difficult to muster up the energy to interact with people, or really even accomplish anything. But! I am back baby, and I'll be back for a while.

Here is day thirty.

Nature

Living masterpiece
But who could be the artist?
No one surely knows.

Etched in suffering
A canvas of flesh and steel
Mother's law descends

  • The photo and first haiku is brokemancode's while the second was inspired from his.

Now that the thirty day challenge has been completed, I'll be going off on a slightly different tangent. I'll continue to post mainly haiku, with the occasional longer poem thrown in, but I'll be breaking away from the strict 5-7-5 syllable requirement.
It was @dbooster who inspired me to step away, in search of a more natural sounding haiku;
one breath.
