Haiku: In B - Flat Major

Updated on April 22, 2012

Haiku: In B-Flat Major


Dr. Darryl Winer

Teasing and mocking

As waves lick and lap the shore

Modest notes and chords

Rising heat within

The slow staccato quickens

Exquisite focus

Mounting urgency

As approaching crescendo

Chorus in full voice

Damp matted hair strewn

Eyes wide with sudden surprise

A wildflower blooms

All thoughts turned inward

Carried forth by the rhythm

Lovers understand

Poured out and breathless

Splayed amongst the rumpled sheets

Hands in limp embrace

      Love the set and not at all sure that they are pushy--

      Hi Beyond-

      Ha! Indeed. This gunsaku seemed to demand carefully selected words to reflect the sentiment(s) - as apparently does your comment.

      Ha, again.

      DW, I like your saying "pushy haiku", put a huge smile on my face =) Love this powerful set, I can see where the "pushy" comes from. Left me on a breath intake...

      Thanks Poet83-

      These woke me up last night demanding that they be written down. Nobody likes a pushy haiku...

      Glad you liked them and I appreciate you dropping by.

      These are wonderful haikus! The word choices and flow are very constructed. Voted up and beautiful!
