Mountains’ Feet | Short Poem No. 50

At the mountains’ feet,
man came to build them a shoe;
that is, a horseshoe.

Friends, this is probably my third or fourth attempt at Haiku. As you can probably tell, I am still learning – trying to mix in traditional techniques/rules, but with my own touch. I want to keep challenging myself, while not confining my own creativity.

If you liked this post, also check out a great set of Haikus with a beautiful dedication, “Haiku: For Rachel” by Whippet Wisdom, as well as my previous Haiku about love, “Delicate Flowers.”

Thin White Lines – Short Poem No. 48

Thin white lines of foam

divide two paradises

on a sleepy day.

the one, only guiding light

in a dark, dark world.

Drift and Sway | Poetry Remix No. 6

“Slowly, slowly drift and sway.
But it never goes away.”

I have no plea, so now, what can I say?

I’ve gotten myself in trouble again.

Because, just like a long reverb, you stay;

every word you say drifts inside my head.

And now I’m in trouble again because

as I drift, you’re the song that’s on repeat;

the sad song of a prisoner of love.

As I drive the street, love won’t hear my plea

to set me free. So now I’m stuck in queue:

Mind and soul have no rest inside of me.

I’m in trouble as I’m captive to you.

Slowly, slowly drift and sway.

But it never goes away.
