Haikus: I'm addicted

Updated on December 16, 2011

My life is not wrapped

No beautiful paper nor

With a bow on top


Veins and arteries

Once well-hidden in my chest

Pour out like stale tears


I was not cheap but

You sold me down the river

To conquer the Styx


The water dried up

Stem and leaves crumble with touch

Press me in your book


Love and lies are kin

Distant cousins that visit

One time too many

      Every bit a poem...My life is not wrapped

      No beautiful paper nor

      With a bow on top

      Once heard, it seems so much to be my expression too. Somehow, though very differently stated, this poem and my new one carry the same tune. It is cloudy this morning, and I loved to read this haiku.

      These are the gems in a necklace, difficult to choose the best piece.

      I loved your choice of expressions.

      The last one was simply amazing. Also loved:

      The water dried up

      Stem and leaves crumble with touch

      Press me in your book
