A Haiku - Love To Spare

Sparse or shared?

Love held back is love denied.

The world loves a lover; better that the lover loves the world.

Love is to share now.

The world surely needs it now.

May we give somehow?

Be honest with yourself.

Could you give more love than you have given so far?

If all the world's people gave even just a little bit of love to each other perhaps we'd have peace in the world.

PDXKaraokeGuy: So far, some Haiku that ryhm, and even an acrostic Haiku. They are lots of fun to create given enough time. They do not put the poet in a straightjacket, but they should say something meaningful on their few lines, words, and syllables. Thanks for commenting.
