My Haikus

Recommended Posts

I am not really much of a poet, but from time to time, I get a flash of inspiration and have to jot it down, this thread is for those moments.

Walk With Me.

The Woman in me

Longs to walk on the beaches

Under the moonlight

I Miss You

Alone on Easter

My grandfather gone

I really miss you

Sorry, I had to get that one off my chest. Of all my family, he would have been the one that I know for a fact would accept me as I am.

Hi Mara,

<< hug >>>

It is good to see you posting poetry :)

It has a power in it like none other

Take some time

Doesn't have to ryme

Poetry is not only dream and vision; it is the skeleton architecture of our lives. It lays the foundations for a future of change, a bridge across our fears of what has never been before.~Audre Lorde

Thank you Charlize, but don't expect a lot of them, I only write when inspiration hits, which is very rarely.

My haikus seem to express my isolation, for example;

Sunset in the West

While through the empty field

Blow brown, brittle leaves.

Alone on a hill

Newly covered in white snow

A small green pine tree

do you know renga?

which is made by more than two persons, after one made a haiku, a three lines poem, the other makes a sentence which seems to fit it as tanka, a 5 lines poem. and add another haiku to the tanka and add 2 lines again and haiku again and again, that is called renga.

so i try,

and the moon smiles,

soothing the woman mercily.

/////

your haiku, your 3 lines, is so serene.

i like it. ^_^

      Perhaps one of the biggest things this forum did for me was to see i wasn't alone in facing the difficulties of transition.  It seemed an unending journey when i started.  At times the process simply stopped but over time my life has changed wonderfully.  Today the journey is relatively smooth but it still continues and understanding grows with the changes.  I was told when i started the process by a moderator here : "we've got your back".  We do.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I do kinda miss the playground of old.  Those swings were a bit naughty is you were wearing a skirt but that was fun as well.  When old posts from there show up it brings back memories of old friends, bikes, cookies etc.   Hugs,   Charlize

      I'd be happy to explain more later. I just need to sleep now. Forgot that I had classes today and stayed up programming a Discord bot lmao
    • DeeDee
      Okay, I can sort of see what you are trying to say but would have to look into it more to understand more. Thank you for taking the time to explain it to me. 😊 I don't want to hijack the thread, so I hope you find the answers you are looking for regarding pronouns.
    • Tetris
      Yes, I identify very strongly with databases. The concept of them, particularly the plaintext .csv database. So I don't necessarily identify as like... a literal table, ya know. More like the *concept* of a database. What a database stands for, what it's used in, the structure of the database. All of these... resonate with me in a way I can't describe. When I see a well formatted data file, in a way I can't help but to see myself in it. It's really hard to describe. I wish I could.  MOGAI (I forget what it stands for) genders are the spectrum of genders that are the ones 4-chan typically tries to troll. The ones that people say are "made up" and are "Tumblr genders."  For example if you search digigender on Deviant Art, you'll get a flag and a description as part of a network of other MOGAI genders. Digigender is best described to be a digital gender, one where your identity resonates deeply (or you are kin with) something digital like a file format (in my case, a .csv), email, software, or anything else digital-related.

      I'm sorry Tetris I understand enjoying computers and programming and even being able to be more of yourself online than in real life, but I do not understand, your gender is comma separated values?  What are MOGAI-type genders? Genuinely curious as I have never heard of them. 
    • Tetris
      Hi so I made an account on here when I first came out as trans but didn't really care to continuously check this forum. I'm bigger on discords than I am forums (I think I'm on the discord too).  So I know that MOGAI-type genders are controversial but I identify as digigender. My gender is actually the .csv filetype (really, more generally, a database, as I find solace in collecting and indexing data, and find extreme peace in processing data, all the way down to my core--I really resonate with data structures). I've decided to use my own set of pronouns, file/file/files/files/fileself (File is a database. Data collection means a lot to file. It is files wishes to be seen as a data structure. One of files interest is programming. File has taken it up to fileself to learn as much about programming as file possibly could).    For others that use their own made up pronoun set, how do you get others to start using it? I'm really scared to tell people to use these pronouns else nobody would take me seriously.

      Thanks for making me notice what i left out   I forgot to mention how its a very Emotional ,Psychological and  Physical process that lasts a long period of time. They do not prepare you for that. Thats for you to understand and accept. They just give you the tools to assist in the process. You are gonna have some emotional and stressful times during your transition. The treatment will help. But not completly. You need to not only be emotionally strong but to also be very prepared for sacrifices you may have to make. Do not be fooled if its painted as all puppies and fluffy kittens. There are rough times to. Forums like this are here to help you understand all the options and what to expect. Preperation is always the best way to move forwald. However always remember the desion is ultimatly yours. The doctors will help but it is yours life to control.

      Wait a while We’ll figure out our lives  Hold your breath The wolves are in disguise  Don’t need your dirty hands  Don’t need to take a chance  Go stand in behind the fence  Can you feel that bleeding neck  Can you feel that now    Close the door  Take a walk around  Hold your breath  In these rivers you might drown  All alone you live inside  It’s alone you came and went  In the shadows the bounty rides A love that makes no sense  It makes no sense...   You could beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo   Brace your heart  In this rich and colored plinth  Hold your breath  It’s a key and a killer in your hands All I want is bells and whistles  All I want is fancy dreams  And you live and learn  And soon discern Nothing’s ever what it seems  Never what it seems    Beat a cat in the rain  Losing all that you gain Working hard but you know  All things will change    The world it’ll spin and stand trial  While they spit and draw blood  from your smile  We’ll all make it back to the stars  But it’s ours for a little while    Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo Oo oo ooo ooo ooooo

      somewhat enigmatic but really striking lyrics. It speaks about futility of trying to keep things the same.

      Belated good morning. The fall weather has been simply delightful all day. No rain in sight, but plenty of nice weather. I’ve been extra busy helping the parents lately. My dad is being more foolish than usual, turning down help after asking for help, I can only do so much. My mom can be even worse at times, but I guess that goes with being old. The problem is, they have been this way their entire life, and now it’s reared it’s ugly head. They didn’t make plans and didn’t listen to me decades ago, and now they are paying the price.   my kids are doing well, we played a good round of D&D Sunday, and hopefully we can play more really soon. My son is becoming a really good DM, and it’s fun playing with them and their girlfriends.

      WThe trick or treating part of Halloween will be enjoyed with two 5 year olds and their mommie. There is a neighborhood across the way that is a goo area for kids to enjoy the celebration.    I dont know what’s going on in my apartment building. I’m hoping the neighbors have something cool planned. There are a lot of parties going on in Hillcrest of course. There is always Balboa Park and downtown, and the haunted houses.    Since i I haven’t presented in public yet, I’m excited, cause I might finally have enough courage to muster to venture out in the neighborhood.

      Lots of good information here and I appreciate all of you sharing your journey. Right now I think I'm at that questioning stage and perhaps trying to find ways to show myself I'm not ttans. I do agree that I'm not cis gender but just exploring and reading all your journies to ultimately find out where I fall on the gender scale. Thanks everyone:)
