haiku

A new haiku.

Our fast-paced lives leave little time to contemplate. These Micro Moments are designed to entertain in a few words, read them slowly and savour the essence. Be they ordinary or remarkable, they are all special in their simplicity. I aim to share experiences, to recapture images the reader may already possess. Occasionally they are vents for frustration but mostly they are light-hearted whimsical wonders of life that bring delight.
Regards from the author, Paul Douglas Lovell.

Attempting purity

Haiku… So you’ve seen me writing my micro poems which I also refer to as haiku and 5-7-5s (mainly because I never knew which was what). I had a vague idea and went with that.
It is a great way to express much in few words. Although that isn’t the half of it and I am just beginning to find out. Now I’m in between drafts of Playing Out, I started to ask questions and read up. I avoided it before.

I’m mortified… I was doing it so wrong. Hadn’t a clue even when I did it right. I only started them help me improve. To learn to be economical with my words. Now I’m getting properly tangled up in it.
Sad thing is, the more read the more I see my mistakes. I cringe imagining the scoffs of intellectual snobs, of which social media has a few. Me not, can’t be the bullet and the gun.
So, for better or worse, I’m going to attempt a purer form of haiku… we will see. Hopefully you will approve of the changes.

Book Covers

I’ve been trying to design my next book cover. I’m going for the Indie-Author homemade look.

All images sourced using the Google parameters: free to use, share or modify, even commercially.

I have a basic draw programme that allows me to cut and paste, stretch and skew. BUT not much else, hence the plain appearance. Personally I don’t like the high-gloss generic style of many covers.

Kind regards. PDL (comments welcome)
