Haiku quintessence


In truth 


Eyes brought me to knees

Only God shows what God sees;

heart closes, eyes opened.





Hands wrung tight on hope

Truth landslides down the mountain;

loose hands never hold.





dissolved in your sights,

puddle of inconsequence;

easily taken...





Found lost in your eyes.

My universe tilted left;

Now, nothing is right.

Haiku -so limitung yet so

Haiku -so limitung yet so profoundly open :) I ztruggle with most forms but haiku often feels like emotional home. Hugss 

Don't let any one shake your dream stars from your eyes, lest your soul Come away with them! -SS

Emotional Home

Nice way to view a poetry form. The limiting helps to engender discipline - to fit in a lot in a little space with line requirements and, if following ancient Japanese restrictions, it's really tight, but still liberating. Home. Yes - slc
