The Introvert


She is just a girl

whose sunlight stays inside her

silently shining


People who are shy, like me, can be difficult to get to know, but don’t dismiss us. We can sparkle too, in our own way!

This haiku is my response to today’s one-word prompt: Shimmer

  1. How I love this. And how my two youngest daughter’s to who I am sending it will love it. If I am not much mistaken this will be adorning two bedroom walls- one in Liverpool, the other in Bristol (UK both) ….

  2. Fabulous words and oh, so true. I know you would never know it… but I’m shy too. I learn to do what I have to do and I have also learned to make opportunities for conversations but when I was young, I swear I would not talk to anyone unless they said something to me first. I was incredibly shy. Deep inside those who are shy is great beauty waiting to be noticed!


  3. Great post. I would like to think that my friends find my introverted self a calm, thoughtful and reliable presence in their lives. I may not say much sometimes but I am always there for them if they need me.
