#NaPoWriMo: A Poem A Day – Day 18

Hi everyone! Today is day eighteen of the national poetry month competition.

Here’s my offering >>>

DAY  EIGHTEEN:

[Instructions:] From NaPoWriMo Day Eighteen … This prompt is based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” Today, I’d like to challenge you to write your own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.

Five Haikus

i 

you’re ever alert

to my every tiny flinch

watchful for my pain

 

ii 

kind, generous, love

shines from your eyes, bares your soul

actions speak louder

 

iii

we share a sweet love

of books, music, and movies

soul companionship

 

iv 

your sense of humour

is second to none, risqué 

laughs at life’s follies

 

v

lost and found, our souls

connected before we met

life’s love eternal

 

Have a wonderful day, everyone, and I’ll see you tomorrow with Day Nineteen on the NaPoWriMo 30 Day Poetry Challenge 🙂

lost and found, our souls
connected before we met
life’s love eternal” I totally believe this about our souls. We know each other even before we meet in person. That’s why we find our soul mates. Thanks for sharing. Lovely. all of it. but the last one spoke to me loudest of all. xoxo

I really like this Harmony. Each and every Haiku brims over with love for your hubby. I’d say you answered the question “Why do I love you?”

Beautifully done!
