In the Morning When I Write (Finding a Place and Time to Create)

In the Morning When I Create
I create in the morning in my comfortable chair.

In the Morning When I Create


I. Mornings I Create


Usually dark

when my feet hit the cold floor

slowly open eyes.


In my morning write,

a bond found with my words

so many stories.


To create new worlds

to transcribe what my eyes see,

to feel, hear, and smell.


On my morning chair

a schoolboy staying up late

to read to the end.


I am learning still

as books begin to stack up

by the light, the chair.


I promise myself

this seat on comfortable chair

coffee and pencil.

Different morning different pleasure to create
Morning rushes in…creativity begins…

II.  Create Stories


The pain of backaches

open my eyes to mornings

my mind on stories.


A perfect mixture

of colors on my palette

a flick of my wrist.


Erase the chalkboard

the whiteness of a blank stare

empty closed notebooks.


This corner of me

will find Compadres to share

morning coffee talk.


By Fiddle Leaf Fig

I’ve watered in different homes

these relationships.


Morning rushes in

creativity begins

pencil to paper.

Create with fresh coffee brewed
Have faith in your thoughts and express through your words.

III.  Write Thoughts


Surrounded by words

which remind me of the time

a hike with my friends.


Sometimes roam the cage

the same path the Panther takes

at our local zoo.

To solve these puzzles

the goal of all this routine

playing some word games.


Sometimes to research

the rich meanings behind words

or our history.


Back outdoors again

with swashbuckling action

try to imagine.


Journey to Venice

to ride a Gondola

never leave my chair.


Before the laundry

doing the chores of my day

when evening comes.

Writing is a discipline
Illuminated creative energy towards each project, harnessed, disciplined.

IV. Write (Create)


From my Lazy Boy

Art History collects dust,

books under small lamp.


I sit and watch light

as if refraction itself

produces bold thought.


A slow moving film

a morning stream of conscience

where to go from here?


With fresh coffee brewed

attention on this moment

faith in thought as word.


Stare past antique lamp

through a window towards the sky,

porch, tree, then blue.



energy towards each project

harnessed, disciplined.

    Jamie, it is amazing how you can skillfully tell a story with Haiku. I enjoyed this post and through your words get a strong visual of your day’s routine. Very well done. Take care.

    I agree with Phyllis. These are some superb haiku skills here Jamie. So many ways to bring upon the writing spirits. Excellent work my friend.

    I have to agree with Phyllis and Paul in regard to your use of Haiku to tell a story. You have become an expert at this jamie. I have written a few haiku but have not yet perfected it to this level. Good job.
