I love haiku.
The distilled essence. Reducing your thoughts to the barest bones, but making them still savory. A full meal with few words.
Traditional haiku is far more complicated than the poems I am going to present here but every once in a while I think I may actually hit the mark.
Hit or miss, these are some my haiku for you:
I Imagine life / not beyond the horizon/ but now: sweet, sweet now
Spring has not yet come / everything is underground/ little birds still sing
Buds blossom, red lips / utter contented murmurs / my heart beats for you
Beneath the clouds: light /each reflects my love for you/ come what may–I’m yours
Fall lulls me to sleep / Desire lies dormant: Winter / Spring awakens me
Pink hues fill my heart/ I close my eyes and see stars / open and it’s you
When I think of You/ little butterflies take flight/ dreams of spring come true
When we first crossed paths/ I never expected you / to bloom before me
Round and round I spun / my world unraveled before me / up at dawn: New Web
