cloud busting

thoughts arise
drifting through my mind

poof! they're gone

sky visions

ever changing views

don't hold on

burn holes with my eyes


[with thanks to Richard Bach for the inspiration]

Hi Janet,

Do you think your readers would be interested in learning about Nashville's 3rd annual Hot Tomato Haiku Contest?
It grew out of the Tomato Art Fest ( and attracted hundreds of entries last year. Entry is free and we're giving away some great prizes! You don't have to be from Nashville (or even Tennessee) to enter, though winners should be willing to read their winning haiku at this year's festival (August 14th).
I'd be glad to provide any more info I can. Details and entry at

Eileen and the Team

Sounds like cloud-gazing:
Some say you have to do it
Until the world stops!?:)

thoughts arise~~
poof they're gone!
I have a bias for those poofing thoughts,
not the thoughts that stay on and on for a lifetime.
don't hold on...
if we can but open our fists and let them all fly free.
