When There Is Hate, SHINE! Revolutionary IMprov Haiku

July 25, 2012

My niece Ashley, head of The Shine Project, wrote this piece about guilt after Alex Teves’ shooting death in the Colorado Theater Massacre. Her blog posting inspired this haiku:

Through the darkness shines/
what we let out, what we give,/
mostly love we share.

Let Your Voice Shine On! Revolutionary Blogging Rhyming Haiku

January 31, 2012

My niece has a Facebook page and website called “The Shine Project”.   (also at www.myshineproject.com). Today she asked readers to comment on what we were doing to “Be the Change We Want to See in the World”. In response, I wrote this summary of what I’d done to “Be the Change”. Then I improv’d this blogging rhyming haiku:

This morning I wrote (again) in my blog (cyranowriter.wordpress.com). Since the Inauguration, when I started my goal of writing a prose or poem thought a day, I’ve written more than 2500 pieces.  I’ve discovered my voice. More importantly, I’ve helped others “Shine” by encouraging them to discover THEIR writing and creative voices.

You have your own voice./

Today, and daily, make the/

choice. Have your words heard.

OR

make the/

choice to have it heard.
