I Quote, You 'Ku - Day 19

"You sometimes think you want to disappear but all you really want is to be found."

~Kid Cudi

Your challenge is to write a haiku or tanka (or choose one of your previously published works) that has a connection with the themes/feelings/images of the above quote, without just restating what has appeared in the text, to create a haibun. Play around with it and see what you come up with. Enjoy!

  1. me and my nonself—
    at the lost and found


  2. flowing river--
    my reflection
    with the sky

  3. if you are mixing
    finding with disappearing
    self-reflection time

  4. summer rain
    wild woods of the heart's
    lost and found

  5. July 19: found

    I was lost in a cloak
    of visibility
