Slaves of time

Writer's Dream

We are slaves of time,
for our scars will reflect our past
while our wounds will ache
till we tend to them.

We are slaves of time,
forever in debt with our master.
Devouring our will to lash back,
there’s no escape from her jaws.

We are slaves of time,
slowly guiding each other to our sure end.
For she brought out all the dirt
exposing the shadow we barely knew.

Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, April 5th 2017 Magnolia (Kobushi)

Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

Dear friends of MLMM,

Finally it is spring here at The Netherlands. As I look around me I see all kinds of blossoms bloom for example cherry blossoms, but I also see Magnolia bloom in almost every garden in my neighborhood. This gives me really a spring feeling and I love it.

This week’s theme for Heeding Haiku With is Magnolia (Kobushi), it is a kigo (seasonword) for spring. Maybe you know that haiku uses kigo to point to the season in which the haiku was written.


Here I have an example written by myself last year (2016):

And another one I wrote back in 2014:

an empty vase –
without hesitation
I cut the Magnolia

Well … I think I have given you enough inspiration for this week’s…

Writing Wednesday – 5 April 2017


Hello everybody and welcome to another Writing Wednesday. The idea of this is I am going to write about whatever subject has inspired me this week.

Everybody is welcome to join in, of course, and you can do that by either writing something in the comments or giving me a pingback to your work. (It goes without saying that you should feel free to share your work if you get the urge to do so!)

What am I going to use as my inspiration this week?

The word… Time.

Never enough

Time is something that was always running out for me. I was always late. It became something that I was known for but it was never out of choice.

I always planned to be on time. Everything down to the last detail was all planned out. You know, which days I was going to work on an essay, how…
