The Depth of Me in Haiku

Updated on December 17, 2017

waiting for the words

the depth of me in haiku

tell you who I am



flying from the edge

although sometimes very scared

the wise sage returns



a mistrusting world

vulnerability mine

strongest attribute



so many lives lived

deep self expressing being

loving warmth in touch



so autumn is here

a new season beginning

beginnings are good



the turtledove sings

good morning good morning Russ

I rise happily



pleasant warm feelings

can’t get you out of my mind

for which I am glad



walking at your side

stumbling upon a heron

no coincidence



majestic swoop wings

aligning with the water

coming in to land



the slow graceful flight

of the heron as she climbs

winging her way home

deeper than desire

I look into your eyes, see

inner beauty and melt



in my arms melting

this is the way it should be

everything changes



cold moon frosts downwards

time of year affects my mood

the icy glow warms



sleeping without you

not as much fun as with you

come back to my bed

      Aaah Larry, Maven with the ravens contemplating Tuzigoot. Your comments are as good as any hub. Thank you.

      I have overlooked this gem.!! Kind of like having thought I had eaten all the pie last night, only to discover another delicious piece waiting for me in the morning...I devoured these haiku with my morning coffee, sitting out in my Zen garden, looking at mysterious Tuzigoot...My only companions were a pair of chatting ravens....such sweet accompaniment to your beautiful and soulfully constructed haiku...Larry

      I love poetry and most intrigued with haiku although I find writing one difficult - the restraint is hard to master! Anyway these are great! Thanks for sharing :D
