Love these reviews showing all contributors links for Haiku. ❤




defrosting cold casesAlice de Sturler of Defrosting Cold Cases: Okay don’t you just love her name? I mean really? Her blog is perhaps the most unique I have come across.DCC is a resource blog for those interested in old unsolved homicides and wrongful convictions. Many cases have no web presence or a very limited one.” I call her Haiku this week Sprint’. I was so thrilled to see Alice throw her glasses in the ring I had to share here there and well that’s kind of it, you know. You know, she looks athletic from her photo. I think I might would become a cold case of fear if she got mad at me, thus the big write up here today.

Response to Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge #31, Prompts: Wait/Move

#1 Move Over

Can’t wait anymore
The urge has overcome me
Struck by need to move.

#2 Baby Steps

Wait behind the line
Then follow the blue arrow
You may move forward.

#3 Move again

A gypsy for years
Can’t count the times I have moved
Wait! I like it here.

#4 Shaken World

You have moved my heart,
Taken & blended with yours,
I need wait no more.

Haiku Friday –– Force & Free

Love the haiku & the daisy photos.

The Writer Next Door | Vashti Q

Welcome to Haiku Friday! Today’s Haiku is inspired by RonovanWrites Weekly Haiku Poetry Prompt Challenge The prompt words are Force & Free. I must admit I struggled a bit with these prompt words but this is what I came up with. I hope you enjoy.


Life Finds A Way

by Vashti Quiroz-Vega

From the dry, cracked earth

Delicate life forces through

Free as a daisy



Did you enjoy the Haiku poem? I love daisies. They make me smile and to me they represent simple beauty, purity, and strength. What’s your favorite flower and what does it represent to you?

Cuba 2012 – Love Songs Written on My Heart: Dancing Shoes, Joyful Hips

I fell in love with this one.


Today we traveled to a Senior Center.
Greeted by smiling faces we entered through a door
Into a dim-lit hallway, and out into a sun-filled courtyard
Shaded by gnarled trees that mirrored faces who had weathered through the years.
In the middle of the courtyard to our surprise
There was a couple dancing.

A man and woman stately and elegant of carriage,
Tracing slow steps of a rumba, turning with grace
And underneath, slow burning fire.
I do not remember if we sat or stood
Or if they served us food.
I’ll not forget the dance.

The couple turned to us. Invited us to join them.
The other seniors eager to include us became our partners in the fun.
We shed inhibitions, traveled back to younger years.
Our bodies forgot stiffness as we moved to Cuban rhythms.
Hips remembered how to flirt, smiles gave come-hither looks.
Oh it was so…

A fresh start for me

If it were only this easy to make a fresh start.

I’m revisiting the earliest Haiku prompts that I missed. I’m finding some good responses to them & it’s a pleasant experiment.
