Challenge #5

Posted by The Design Experiment on 10:50 PM
Hey Experimenters!

This week our challenge comes from Wendy!

Write a Haiku about today!

*What is a Haiku you may ask, well here ya go...*

hai·ku /?ha?ku/ Pronunciation Key - Show Spelled Pronunciation[*hahy*-koo]
1. a major form of Japanese verse, written in 17 syllables divided into 3 lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, and employing highly evocative allusions and comparisons, often on the subject of nature or one of the seasons.

What a fun challenge Wendy!!!

Here are the X Team's layouts:

Haiku Journaling:

The hands on the clock
Bloom shows it's face overnight;
Always things will change

By Collette


I never could guess
Just how easy it would be
To love you this much

By Leslie


Baby bunnies born
Right here in our own backyard
Gods' sweet creations.

By Emily


Swirling around me
Anger. Guilt. Worry. and Fear.
Time to stop and breathe.

Today. It's Just Been One of Those Days
By Kimmi


Sitting here dreaming
Of peace and relaxation
Somewhere far away

Now Today
By Kimberly


One tear filled with pain
Like my heart filled with absence
to never see or hear her again

Kim says:
This is what I was feeling right now today when this challenge was given to me to do. It's still very fresh for me and what I think about daily, as I cared for my mother in law for 3 months and watched her take her last breath here on earth. Doing this LO was such a great therapeutic and perfect way for me to be able to express it so openly my heart.

And here is the fabulous layout from our beautiful guest designer Angela Daniels!



Six for one last day
Tomorrow you turn seven
Quietly I grieve

Hi ladies !
You can see my layout here : http://doado.over-blog.com/article-18872721.html

I have scrapped what I feel this days about my boy. Haiku journaling :
dans tes yeux fragiles
grandit l'audace de l'enfance
j'aime quand ils p├ętillent

It means :
in your delicate eyes
grow the childhood audacity
i love when them sparkle

Thank you for this challenge !!!
