Haiku on a Bleak Morn

by

Dr. Darryl Winer


Wretched and empty

Baseless fear of what’s to be

No more tomorrows


Free, soaring on wing

Unfettered, lighter than air

Rises fearlessly


Up, effortlessly

Imbued with the special gift

That’s only human


The choices we make

Man’s soul teeters on point

Our sole custody


Recriminations

Oh, where do we go from here

Overcome the past


Our piteous state

Poor decisions and mistakes

Haunt us forever


The power of good

The light calls brightly to us

We answer on wings


Seeking, while at sleep

Dreams, carried upon the night

Await wakefulness


A bleak empty soul

Stumbling in the darkness

Light in the distance


Peering in askance

To thwart mounting emptiness

For answers so dear

      Nice Haiku, what do you call your style when you publish a series of Haiku that are grouped together in a larger poem?

      Hello Denver5280-

      Perhaps gunsaku (if each verse stands alone), renku, or rensaku (if the verses are dependent upon one another).

      Some use renga (as it describes an inferior poetry) and probably applies to mine.

      In gunsaku and rensaku, the linked haiku are usually done collaboratively among a number of writers. They can, and in my case, be done by a single writer.
