Sunday: First Impressions

alif
sin ta
mim qaf nun

in
the beginning
who am i

so
quiet the
silence echoes silence

light
of dawn
but no sun

gray
skies
face to face

comforter
pink green
thick warm flowers

white
walls white
walls white walls

hungry
overfed cats
scratching mewling crying

new
day becomes
what it is

NaPoWriMo Day 22. The NaPoWriMo prompt was to write one or more hay(na)ku (three lines of one, two, and three words respectively; no syllable counts).

Please visit this list of my poet friends who are also doing the poem-a-day challenge. They are worth the look. I’m inspired by them daily. Contact me if you want to be added to the list.
