Haiku - Various Themes

Updated on April 29, 2017

blowing from the lake

icy wind cuts through my skin

the sun warms my heart

walking through the park

introspective solitude

inspiring haiku

i apologise

i value relationships

more than my ego

Equestrian Statue - Windsor Great Park
Equestrian Statue - Windsor Great Park

silhouetted queen

by three hundred year old trees

bow majestically

playing silent strings

on my internal fretboard

transferable soon

wailing emotions

coming from the depths of me

my trusted blues harp

inspired music

as if coming from nowhere

muscle memory

memory moments

best of all the times in love

how I savour them

emotional tears

happiness making me cry

touches me deeply

aphrodisiac

putting fire to emotion

turn me on to life

hedgerow awaiting

the buds that promise the spring

not long to go now

supersonic greed

air gone at fantastic speed

just plane pollution

      Hi Larry, thank you. Reading out loud impacts so much more on all the senses. Even words like aphrodisiac or supersonic said slowly, are poetry. I hope all is well with you and that you are considering sharing your thoughts in haiku with us again soon. Go well, Russ

      Really nice and bonus with the accompanying images. I also liked the "putting fire to emotion" line. Thanks much.
