haiku heights: September heights–DAY 30!!!!!!

escaped balloons climb
sometimes miles before they drift–
several shades of free

    The Dropout

    • Hey, Dropout–I love reading anything you write–maybe try again in April? I actually find the writing of them is not difficult–it is reading all of those wonderful haiku inspired by the prompt that is the time-consuming part…but I love it!

    Was under the clutches of Viral fever and I scribbled the last haiku within minutes ( I know its very very bad)I just wanted to complete this challenge …
    Many thanks for being a part of this amazing journey of HAIKU SEPTEMBER HEIGHTS…being a novice I tried to put in my best but I know at some or the other point I missed to hit the bull’s eye and still all of you all inspired me a lot either by peeping into my space or liking my posts and of course your ever encouraging comments made me feel on the top of the world…Loads of special thanks to each one of you…September had been very exciting and a learning month for me…I know I need to improvise a lot and I shall try to do that for sure …Thanks a lot once again…keep visiting and keep spilling your beans ..bouquets or brickbats all of them are accepted whole heartedly…
