novels from book nook

she travels around the world

from her window seat


© Nancy Brady 2018


Nancy Brady loves words of all kinds; she’s a writer and a reader … a writer of haiku and short stories and a reader of trashy romances and spine-tingling thrillers! Immerse yourself in more of her writing at N B Smith.

A neat haiku with such a wide picture – I just love the thought of books being portals into another places, or maybe even other worlds?

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

Taking Adderall …

Brings me back to the real world

But I don’t belong


© Laney Ruocco 2018


Laney tells me that she is “Just a haiku master in training trying to navigate the beautiful chaos that is motherhood.” Discover more of Laney’s haiku at Rhythmic Lines.

This is another haiku that stayed with me from the first reading – the stark shape of the word Adderall works perfectly as a portal between real and unreal …

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

silent falls the snow
wraps grey world in wolf blanket
and chills earth’s marrow

the world waits on tenterhooks
until the song ends

hope is one’s future
the world depends upon hope
a light in the dark

hiss-click snowflakes fall
whisper-kiss, whiteness on red
in a silent world
