haiku prompts!

Journal Entry: Sun Jul 24, 2016, 12:39 PM
hey guys! c: since i'm working on a haiku book,
and sometimes i need inspiration, i've decided
to open up a journal that i'll keep up indefinitely!!

comment on this journal with one or two words (or a topic)
and i'll write a haiku based on your prompt, if it inspires me!

i will not reply to every single prompt, but this will definitely
help me out a lot, and once my book is finished, anyone that
inspired me will get a 50% discount on the book when it's published!! <3

the smell of autumn
the sounds of spring
textures (like fur, feathers, or something else)
tastes, like intense ones (super tart fruit, savory meats, achingly sweet desserts)
the way the beach feels as an experience
the sensation of being happily alone
maybe also the sensation of being sad alone
that melancholy feeling of missing someone who had forgotten you

I love poetry and haikus - I'm definitely going to check out your haiku blog! :3

oh and for the being happily alone

"I have my own life,
my own routine without you
and I feel so free

I thought this would be
hard, but I know this was the
best choice I have made.

Liberated and
independent, I can choose
how my story ends."

i did one about the beach but it ended up being a lot different than i intended

"Fine grains of sand stick
to my skin and the ocean
breeze tickles my nose

The sound of the waves
crashing against the shore, your
fingers between mine

In this moment I
wish that time would slow down, so
I could savor this

This quiet exchange
of delicate caressing
means the world to me"

I ended up password protecting my blog because my dad was concerned that people would steal my poems and since nothing is copyrighted or whatever, I thought that was a good idea lol but I hope you enjoyed this very long haiku!!

I'm gonna be writing a haiku about each of your suggestions, because they're all so good?? Like wow you really helped out ;o;
