Wave – Haiku My Heart

as she nears, she fears;
a curl of energy falls –
a wave, nears then leaves…

Waves remind me of my tendency to curl up and retreat when I begin getting close to people.  I am working on not running away from making friends, but it’s not easy.  My reflex is to retreat.  I approach and then eventually I fall back just like a wave.  But, then again, like a wave, I try approaching again.

Haiku My Heart at Recuerda Mi Corazon


About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
