The Game of Jeopardy! in Haiku

First round Jeopardy
The clues easier
My responses right

Double Jeopardy
Tougher stuff I need to know
Will I buzz in first?

The Daily Doubles
Seeking to find hidden gems
And earn more money

Final Jeopardy
Wagering right is crucial
Don't act like Clavin!

"The Tide"

The pain of loss
is like the tides
it ebbs and flows
throughout our days
sometimes we think
it's getting bearable
but always it returns
at an all-time high
and crashes against us
with hurricane force

PTSD

A broken soldier
Torn apart in times of war
Fighting her way back

More Haikus

Writing poetry
Helps to keep the blues away
On winter mornings


Been working so hard
To leave the past behind me
Wish someone would help

Naked mannequins
Arms, legs no longer attached
Favorite store gone

Long List

I've got a whole bunch of "resolutions" for this new year.  I put that in quotes because they're more like goals for the year rather than resolutions, which perhaps gives me a better chance of achieving them (since I read that only 8% of people actually keep their New Year's resolutions). I would like it to be a stellar year, and I intend on doing everything within my power to make that happen.  Hope yours works out just as well!!
