I Quote, You 'Ku - Day 7

“We are all dreaming children as we read. And as we write.”

~Tessa Hadley

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!

Click here for the first post on how I Quote, You 'Ku works. Every poet who posts a poem this month will be entered into the draw to win a copy of A New Resonance 8.

    2. summer vacation-
      write and proofread, write and proof...
      no time must be lost:
      opening my inner worlds
      before life's autumn sets in

  2. with childlike faith
    she writes
    a happy ending
    every night
    in her journal

  6. You should wake up from
    your childlike dream of reading
    No, it's too much fun!
