A sequential haiku? Coining the term if no-one hasd before. Five verses of haikus about a girl who falls in love, oblivious to the narrator's yearning for her. Which is the narrator's fault, but oh well.

Ms. Partridge sits down;

Shuffles the papers on her

Desk, painting pictures.


She’s oblivious

To my observations of

Her elegant grace.


Alas; she’s not mine

And she never will be; no,

She is Kameron’s bride.


She draws his portrait

While he softly plays guitar;

I don’t stand a chance.


I remember once

We hiked across the great moors

‘til, scared, I turned back.
