You Won't Scare it Off

You can shout and run

You can raise your arms, and charge

You won’t scare it off

The words did not matter - she voiced the joy of life.

This time I’m holding joy close and running fast and greeting all the rest of it with  my arms out.

(Share the joy at Haiku My Heart)

  1. Yeah, am trying to be more of a vertebrate, both in my writing and my daily dealings. Thanks for visiting!

  2. The Haiku reminds me of the Tom Petty song, Won’t Back Down. The portrait doesn’t follow that theme, but to fill your life with joy is a good thing. Nice stuff!


  3. I’m learning to be brave too, so we’ll join forces and let the scary stuff know we mean business!

    Love the post and image.

  4. What an intriguing image. And your words are so true – a great reminder that joy is waiting, sometimes in spite of ourselves. 🙂


  5. Thanks, everyone!

    The haiku is kind of meant to go both ways (either run towards joy or try and fail to scare away something dark)…but honestly I just thought the old print was super cool. 🙂

  6. i read this as
    your JOY is so immense…
    no thing, no bad, no unexpected
    could scare it off!

    love this.
    completely. truly , you most certainly do control the spice!
