BP: Haiku Dialogue: Ad Astra (To the Stars)–Weightlessness

This week at the Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, the Ad Astra (To the Stars) theme was weightlessness. From the global community of haiku poets came haiku, which illustrated weightlessness in imaginative ways.

Alex Fyffe, the guest editor for this series of haiku columns, chose one of this pedometer geek writer’s haiku for inclusion. It is as follows:


if only all my dreams

included flying

~Nancy Brady, 2021

Thanks Alex for choosing one of mine, and thank you to K.J. Munro and Lori for overseeing the column.

I don’t know when I first dreamed of flying, but I know I was just a kid. It was such a freeing feeling when I took off under my own power, flying above my neighborhood friends and family. Unfortunately, those dreams don’t happen all that often. Alas…

Next week’s prompt is black holes, and one or two unpublished haiku can be submitted until Saturday, December 18, 2021 at 12:00 midnight CST via the form provided.

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Dreaming of flying and swimming without needing breath underwater… *sigh* đŸ˜€

  2. Me, too, Jules. While I live within two blocks of Lake Erie, I never dip my toe into it. Kayak, yes, but swim no. However, I do like wading in warm ocean water.


  3. Dreams about flying were always my favorites. Lovely haiku, Nan.
