Who Am I?

Pink Tulip

Lonely Tulip Yet To Blossom. Photo Credit: Aura Gael/Sleeping Tiger. Haiku written by Aura Gael/Sleeping Tiger.

This Haiku (or the basis of it) came to me when I glanced in a mirror today. When I saw my reflection, I didn’t recognize myself and thought about all the time that has passed and all the lost opportunity to know myself. I felt defeated, old and like I’m too late for life.

  1. I like! Lovely inspirational picture. 🙂

    Here is my poor attempt at Haiku:

    Tulip on the brink
    Of a bloom about to be
    When the time is right.


    Sleeping tigers know
    The power of a strong heart
    Beneath the silence.

    • I’m taking posts out of private mode and got to this again. One thing I like about going back to old posts is reading comments…yours in particular. 🙂

      I didn’t see it when you first wrote and posted these poems here, but I am seeing it now. I was feeling too dark to see it before. Thank you so much. It was here when I was ready to see it.

      It’s alarming how much the darkness of depression can cause blindness.

      I am at a point where I am beginning to actually feel what you said now too.

  2. Reblogged this on Sleeping Tiger and commented:

    Reposting from October 2015. The last line of the Haiku could be an explanation of some steps backward I feel I took.

    Going back and editing old posts is helping me to catch back up with myself, my healing, my recovery and my progress.
