Second Attempts at Haiku

Poetry By: Wilbur
Poetry



More of the same attempt to get familiar with this medium.
Not up to snuff perhaps but great fun to try and paint this way. Many thoughts told in short images.

Second Attempts at Haiku

Ruffled waters roil
Life encounters like life
Birdbath

* * *

Dead nerves can't feel
Beach sands push in between toes
My loss births sorrow

* * *

Smiles shoot energies
Parapet hides the bowman
Choice of weapon, please?

* * *

Think black thoughts at me
Hurl black words at me
Blackbird

* * *

Wings furl then open
Last minute safely pulls up
Seagull

* * *

Echoing exchange
Banshee caws breaking daylight
Crow-down throw-down starts

* * *

Today's gut true blue
Overhead aloof and white
Who painted the sea?

* * *

Kids cry, snuff back snot
Adults blink and keep dry cool
Pain is better wept

* * *

Sound is all around
Nothing stays still or silent
My head a cage fight


* * *
