Sensational Haiku Wednesday - Chrysalis

Join me as I participate in Sensational Haiku Wednesday... link up with Jenn from You know... that Blog?

Join the fun!

This week's theme: Chrysalis

The early morning
An awakening, a groan
Emerging slowly

As my mind awakes
As I engage my body
I begin to think

Somewhere within me
My inner beauty struggles
I'm uncomfortable

The mirror reflects
Something I don't want to be
I will set my path

A commitment made
Daily I strive to possess
The beauty within

I challenge my mind,
My morning routine: focus,
consistent, move, strong.

Each day I push hard
God carrying my self-doubt
Finding me in me

One morning, someday,
I will look in the mirror...

Just me, AJ


  1. Powerful, AJ. I was surprised at the direction it took in the end, which is really great. Time to embrace the butterfly within! Maybe next week we can all fly together!

  2. I tell you this everytime but you are really good at the haikus. Loved it.

  3. Sounds awesome! I love how you took the challenge and went at it differently then most would!!!!

    Our church's mission is all about transformation. We use the butterfly as our logo!

    In April, I am speaking at a women's retreat. My message is titled, "From the Inside Out" focusing on inner beauty, transformation, and being His precious one. I'd like to share this poem with the ladies there. Would that be ok? I think Metamorphosis is gonna be great too!

    Thanks for sharing this blessing!
