#FemkuMag – Issue 6

#Haiku Happenings #2: Tia Haynes’ latest haiku and #haibun apppear in Femku!

Adalia Haiku

Honored to not only have two senryu in this month’s issue of #FemkuMag but also to be featured with my haibun “From Within”:

that pill
what once
was mine

retirement
her gray roots
begin to show


From Within

I grew up ashamed of my period. After all it’s the reason why women shouldn’t be CEOs, or presidents, or doctors. Right? Why we shouldn’t have any position of power. That it makes us unable to make strong decisions or handle crises. Right? And I’ve accepted that, that my own blood is a sign of weakness, not strength. That the very essence of my being is vile and less than. And that’s as it should be. Right?

broken poppy
how the petals
catch the wind
