Romantic Poem: Haiku-style

Updated on November 12, 2012
Source

A poetic expression of the meeting and parting of lovers. Start with the first and read to the third. Or start with the third and read to the second... It is a circular poem. No beginning or end, only continuous meeting and parting.


Loveliness lingers
in that place you were resting.
World calls you away

Empty sheets await
hungry, passionate lovers.
Hearts beat. Limbs entwined.

Star-filled sky. Moonlight
and shadows on satin sheets.
Golden beam of dawn.

      I love creating Haiku poems and this is beautiful DanaTeresa. I enjoy the idea of how it is circular, very creative and interesting writing. I'm voting this up and rating it beautiful, awesome, and interesting :)

      Docmo - What a beautiful compliment... "captured in little poetic nuggets" - that made me smile. It's just how I think of Haiku.... These came from what you recently posted on facebook. Something about the haiku and the image left me with a feeling that I had to "answer". And this is the result. My utmost gratitude for the appreciation, and the kind words. (if there is a hub of yours i can link to, let me know)

      Beautifully done. The emotion of love and absence captured in little poetic nuggets. Circularity is an added bonus to these wonderful haikus. Glad I posted mine, Dana, these were born from the crumpled sheets? Well done. beautiful.

      Hi Bill- seems you have gone from fashionably late on commenting to lightning speed

      Glad you appreciate the "optional starting points". I have churned out enough haiku-style work that I thought it was time to up my game with something a little different.

      This is another darn thing that popped up just around bedtime. I may be short on sleep tomorrow, but I think for good reason. :)

      Very nice Dana! I love being given the choice to start at the third stanza...it pleases my sense of abnormal. :)
