linger – a haiku

your words lingering

as smoke in an enclosed room

cause my eyes to tear

but they love each other- a series of haiku

A series of haiku that I wrote for Artists4Peace.  This month’s topic was Breaking the Cycles of Abuse

 

she is wearing a

turtleneck in the summer

to hide fresh bruises

fingerprint necklace

one of many abuses

that she covers up

she can’t tell her friends

not that she has many left

he made sure of that

she doesn’t know why

she keeps making him so mad

she must do better

if he is so bad

why doesn’t she leave, you ask

you don’t understand

he loves her so much

he feels terrible after

says it’s the last time

and she loves him too

so she lives this way

in spite of herself

Melanie Thomason

anemic

In need of your truth

my soul, once more depleted

becomes anemic

 

In need of your love

my blood runs unaereated

growing anemic

 

You are my weakness

my heart, again defeated

I am anemic

of course

floors freshly mopped

no leaves and mud strewn about

rain falls heavily

writing ~ a haiku

writer’s melody

fingers dancing across keys

letters birthing words

Do you see the birds? (a series of haiku)

 

Picture taken right outside my writing room. Do you see the birds?

Picture taken right outside my writing room.
Do you see the birds?

green leaves in shadow

birds perched on slender branches

outside my window

blue birds do fly bys

chirping gossip out of tune

they sing no response

flitting in the breeze

that warns of the coming rain

they seek no shelter

content to just be

little green leafy birds stay

to inspire me

Purrfect ~Haiku

purring cat in lap

fragrant candle lighting room

peaceful, purrfect night

Oasis~Haiku

punctured clouds spilling
May flowers drink greedily


verdant oasis
