Passed out in his arms

Waves carry the brave sailor

Forward towards home

Haiku – Importance

Simple things in life

Faith, kids, love, and family

Make the world go round

I think on certain days of the week when I have no Haiku in the tank I am going to do what I did this morning. I thought of the first word that came to mind. I then sat down and wrote a Haiku based off that word. SIMPLE was the word that came to mind. If you want to you can join in. Right a Haiku or Poem or even small story based off the word SIMPLE. Post it to your blog and leave me a link below. Might be something fun to get us all motivated to write.
