Jaded thoughts
Nix positive growth
Jolt of verve


Note:  I love the color jade, and I enjoy the jade pieces I have to wear as well as the symbolism behind this ancient stone. So, although, I realize Bjorn Brudberg and Carpe Diem may have meant for the prompt to be more for the color of jade, or the significance of jade in symbolism, and/or spirituality … I could not help myself.  This is what popped up and my muse ran with it!! 😀

    Jade and jaded are almost juxtapositions. Nice use of the prompt.

    when i think of ‘jaded’ individuals, i think of teenagers….they seem so world-weary


    • becca givens says:

      It is unfortunate for many teenagers and other individuals as well … at times, the body can get bogged down with all the negative energy emitted around them and/or towards them. I think, taking a deep breath, and viewing life from a different perspective can give one that jolt of energy to turn things around. It is important for us, no matter how difficult things may become, to take a deep breath, and trust good will come from it all. Have a blessed weekend! 😀


  10. Well done Becca. The prompts are just an inspiration source and you may use it as you wish. This haiku is really nice composed. Thank you for sharing.
