Haiku Poem; About First Love

Updated on August 8, 2013



Heart beat,fluttering
clouds dancing across the sky
a woman in love


A strand of her hair
falling across eyes of blue
looking at me,smiles


Blushing,a rose bud
coyly lowers her head as
a breeze passes by


Innocence,her charm
translucent beauty,like a
fragile porcelain


Not yet a woman
pure as pristine mountain snow
no longer a child


Standing on tip toes
her quivering lips reaches
for a lover's kiss


Anticipating
the afterglow of sunset
a tremulous touch

When two become one
passion awakens, and her
winter turns to spring


Hands around my neck
a cherry between her lips
sweet and inviting


White crane stirs the pond
as a silent reed gives life
to a lover's song


A Swallow,swiftly
autumn's light,her fading kiss
ends a secret tryst


A sad expression
reflection so deep, her eyes
echos the dark night

Nothing left but memories....
Nothing left but memories....

    SilentReed the simplistic echos of love reverberates in my soul. I can see the image you portray here. Love is in the air I can sense it:0)

    lovely, delightful poetry at it's finest from your not so silent pen. Bravo, I rate it Up and Up some more.

    A pleasant way with words; never forced or unnecessary. Reading this is like floating down a river in a canoe. It's organic and natural. Well done.

    Magic flows from your pen my friend with these words that you weaved, a gift you give us and I accept them in reverence. Your last two thoughts were simply enchanting and powerful.

    "White crane stirs the pond

    as a silent reed gives life

    to a lover's song

    A Swallow,swiftly

    autumn's light,her fading kiss

    ends a secret tryst"

    Jhamann ~ Thank you for your comment,Jamie.They do flow well together,

    It seems natural

    winter snow melting in spring

    a bud takes a peek

    ~

    When two lovers meet

    love's passion overwhelms all

    It seems natural :)
