Guide to determining if you are constantly being mauled by bears

This is for Ronovan’s weekly haiku prompt. The words this week are guide and mad.

Beloved guide me
through red mad anger open
heart to shores of love

The picture is my son and daughter on the shore of Lake Crescent, Washington in 2004. We stopped driving for a rest. My son has just skipped a rock and I love the curve of his body and physical joy expressed. He’s trying to influence what the rock does with his body language. How can we all stay that fluid and joyful?

    What a bendy boy. A delightful image and haiku.

  2. Hello! Your haiku is wonderful. The photograph is lovely and I also loved your question, ‘How can we all stay that fluid and joyful?’ It’s a very good question and I wish I knew the answer. I guess freeing your Id and allowing the child in you to come out once in a while is a start. ;)
