Sharing a Haiku for NaHaiWriMo - day twenty-eight

I'm writing a haiku a day for NaHaiWriMo offline. Here at Swimming in Lines of Haiku I'm sharing one of my published haiku each day:

thinking of you -
the light
on a paua shell

  1. Hi Kirsten - congratulations on your month of haiku! I didn't do very well this month, I'm afraid... very sporadic... and, as I missed a lot of the prompts, I've just gone through all your haiku and scribbled down a theme/subject from each one to fill in my notebook blanks as and when. Hope you don't mind? : ) It's just so much easier being told what to write rather than coming up with it myself!

    p.s. I have a paua shell! A friend from NZ gave it to me before he left France - so beautiful.

  2. Hi Lynne -

    No, I don't mind at all. This writing of mine is here to be read and enjoyed!

    I found weeks two and four quite enjoyable, but writing one a day during week one and three was a struggle! A write-up of my experience coming in a couple of days.

    Smiled as I read about your paua shell :)
