Short and Sweet: Haiku Installation #1

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
