5 haiku

Haiku prompted by the following quote:

[…] “We have lost contact with reality, the simplicity of life”. […] Paulo Coelho

These are separate…and in no particular order.

 

1.

illumination

of every street light and house

obscure the moonlight

 

2.

social networking

facebook friends and followers

don’t replace friendship

 

3.

live your own real life

there is no reality

on television

 

4.

don’t follow blindly

choose to see reality

knowledge empowers

 

5.

be here with me now

take off your shoes, stay awhile

enjoy the moments

 

~Melanie Thomason

Chloris

la-faune-et-la-flore-mark-harless-fb

– picture by Mark Harless

 

behold fair Chloris

the Greek goddess of flowers,

growth, transformation

she drinks deeply of

the all-nurturing, western

stream of Okeanos

before returning

to happily dance and sing

in Elysian Fields

long legged recluse (haiku)

I am caught up in

your sticky threaded prison;

your reluctant prey.

·

I’m firmly ensnared.

Your silky, sweet sounding lies

have woven a web.

·

A gauze-like blindfold

distorts my vision of you,

but I still see you.

·

Hairs raise, skin tingles

as I await your venom

poisonous or not.

alone (2 ways)- haiku

as a phantom limb

I can only imagine

the warmth of your love

finally alone

dancing beneath the moonlight

she is free, to be

des·i·de·ri·um (haiku)

 

desiderium

my lips hunger for your taste

lingering kisses

 

desiderium

my flesh tingles at the thought

gentle caresses

 

desiderium

i’m heart broken, my soul aches

where did the love go?

love (haiku)

all-encompassing

absolute, true and boundless

is Mother Earth’s love

she nurtures all in

a universal embrace

will you love her back?

linger – a haiku

your words lingering

as smoke in an enclosed room

cause my eyes to tear
