searching for peace



into distant skies
dreams fly on wings of hope
searching for a home

      • JM, if you feel you need to delete the links on the comment below, I completely understand. I would really like to know if these “little” poems are Haikus before I reblog them.
        Waiting patiently for your reply,

      • Sorry to confuse you. Being relatively new to my blog you probably missed my early attempt at explaining my Haiku endeavours/exploration. What I’ve written is “Modern/western Haiku,” I am adhering to a 5-7-5 syllable count structure (As adopted by Japanese Haiku masters (Classical) – some writers ignore this structure but I find it enjoyable. The structure itself is more phonetically natural when the Haiku is expressed in japanese, in english it can “sound” a bit padded..sometimes;when trying to fit to the syllable counts) and try to provoke thought and invoke the spirit of nature in my short statements/observations. Yes, they are modern Haiku! I hope that answers your question!

  1. Hey JM, since we have similar themes to our writing, I would love to repost several of your pieces. Is this poem and the others like them called a haiku?
    Sherrie Miranda’s historically based, coming of age, Adventure novel “Secrets & Lies in El Salvador” is about an American girl in war-torn El Salvador: ;
    Her husband made a video for her novel. He wrote the song too:

  2. Reblogged this on sherriemiranda1 and commented:
    The picture and Haiku together remind me of the theme of my novel. In fact, I used to say that I, and later my protagonist, was “searching for a home.” I even described my protagonist as “searching for peace” in a war-torn country.
    Children, especially war orphans, are an important element in my novel and the fact that my protagonist does fly “into distant skies.” And the story culminates with “dreams fly(ing) on wings of hope.” In the end, Shelly does find a home.
    So, J M Lysun’s little poem describes my story almost as well as a one hundred word description. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do! 😉 ❤
