There's something about poetry that saves me… ~ Martin Espada
Haiku is only small in size. Nice work, Mary!
Thanks Eric! Wow, you're fast!
struggling forward is part of life.well done Haiku.
I saw your link on the Poets United site. I love this Haiku!
Yes, the substitution of 'we' for 'I' changes the whole purpose of the expression from introspection to a declaration. Inward to outward. But, either way they are pertinent to your mood as you probably feel both. (how deep is that! haha.)
incredible how one word can alter perception :)
Mary,A strong Haiku, born from resolve!Best wishes, Eileen

they indeed mean two different things. good read.
Ed - Thank you!
Together is the way to go...
A feeling of 'aloneness' vs. 'shared' goals. Such different meanings can be read into both. Some food for thought, thanks for sharing both, Mary.
Mary...Sometimes small is Good!
the difference between i and we is huge...nicely done...and hope your muse finds you ready...
I came back to leave another comment, as you don't seem to have an email contact enabled, and I wanted to answer your question.My 55 was written as prose, mostly to make the point that, in doing so, there need be no loss of poetic rhythm. The fact that you queried it, seems to show you recognised the poetic content inherent in the words, anyway! Thank you!
i and we does make such a difference. amazing haiku so short but sweet.
G-Man - Thanks! Glad you stopped by.Brian - Thank you Brian. I'm ready to put her mug on a milk carton about now!Jinksy - Thanks for the answer. The words were very poetic, which is why I asked. Fallenelegy - Thank you for stopping in, and for the very kind comment. Cheers!
