Review and Anticipation

so  many tears fell
in this year of too much pain
a solemn review

 - 0 -

writing my savior
my pen gave heartbreak a voice
healing poetry

- 0 -

arrival of a new year
joy of brighter days

Jenn @ Youknow...that Blog? said...

We are feeling the same way about this waning year - I'll certainly be glad to bid it adieu!

I wish you a very Happy New Year, and many joys for 2012.

Thanks for joining us at Sensational Haiku Wednesday! So great to have you with us.

I love the first, especially: "too much pain, a solemn review." You said much, well, in few words. Bravo.

My heart jumped when I saw your Poe book. I HAVE THE SAME ONE :D :D

Susie -- I love the first image ... I can relate to how the angel appears to "feel" ... sets the tone for the title and the post ... love the entire set ... HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

Cool Ben...I just got mine about a month a go. I love Poe. He is the reason I started writing poetry in the first place.

writing a savior...How True!

Loved the second pic by you :)

Very well penned. (and I liked the photos too.) Indeed poetry can be a 'savior' during difficult times. May your new year bring you bright days!
