My Saturday-delayed “Six-Words” that became a Haiku!

Hummingbird moth on Valerian

Saturday, September 22, 2012–Sunday, September 23, 2012*

silently
listening
watching
a hummingbird waits
is it safe now?

Note: It came to the feeder a few minutes after I wrote this.  🙂

*I wrote this in my long-hand journal on the back deck on Saturday.
Then, Ms. LuLu Dell (all my computers have had the given name of “LuLu”!) decided to take an unscheduled vacation for most of Sat. & Sun., so I couldn’t do the computer thing until Sunday evening…

Oh, who cares?! My Haiku isn’t Six-Words anyway!! Silly me!!  🙂

I love it when I create opportunities to laugh at myself!!  :))

My Six-Word Memoir

I decided to follow a suggestion in O, The Oprah Magazine, Feb. 2012:

“YOU in Six Words.”

http://www.oprah.com/omagazine/Six-Word-Memoirs-O-Magazine-Mini-Memoirs/

“O” picked up the exercise from Larry SmithSMITH Magazine,

Six-Word Memoir,” www.smithmag.net.

Anyone who knows me and my love for words and using them will not be surprised by how difficult it is for me to be CONCISE! Or what a challenging Spiritual Discipline it is for me to write a well-balanced, spiritual, 17-syllable Haiku capturing a moment from nature!

In the first exercise of a workshop years ago, we had to describe ourselves in one word that began with the same first letter of our first name. I became: Loquacious LindaLou!

Anyway, here is my Six-Word Memoir as of Friday, June 29, 2012:

LETTING MY LIGHT SHINE. PAIN TOO!

However, true to form I have an alternative, on June 30th!

OR

LETTING MY LIGHT SHINE… WITH HUMOR 🙂
