HAIKU MY HEART
WRITTEN FOR "recuerda mi corazon" HAIKU MY HEART
Tempted by glitter Night quietly plucks a star Moon cries in vain
A great visual of the night sky, it does look like glitter. And the crying moon. It outshines them all. Some nights it is hiding.ReplyDelete
Good thoughts here.
Interesting thoughts here. Some nights the stars do indeed look glittery,ReplyDelete

you have packed strong emotion in a hand full of words,painting a picture of the celestial struggling
i hope you will join us again and again!
What a fantastically beautiful Haiku you have there. Can picture it so vividly in my mind. Love the night plucking a glittering star. Keep writing such Haikus!! Pleasure to read them.ReplyDelete

can understand the moon's vain.
You asked me to visit and your haiku has served me well as a prompt. I leave here the way your haiku made me feel. Thank you.ReplyDelete
The Long Way
The glitter deceives
us as night takes our vision.
We are left with bones.
How the moon opens
her heart, how she sobs, cries out
across all our years,
waxing and waning,
and the tides still rise and fall.
So it is with us
as we rise and fall
according to the long way
we have still to go.
Christopher, thank you so much.. I feel enhanced.. well doesn't matter a Long Way ..you have just made my day.. waht a gift of a lovely poem..will cherish it always..ReplyDelete
Your words tell a poignant tale. Lovely.ReplyDelete
Ah, you have the true gift of Haiku, yes. You tell a story and your figures are the stuff of great myth. I love it. Very beautiful indeed. We have had a glittery sky here and the full harvest moon (called the "wine moon" has been crying I am sure)ReplyDelete
My bedroom window is in the roof, as I gaze out upon all that twinkles before sleep I will think of your words. Thank you.ReplyDelete
"Moon cries in vain."ReplyDelete
Pretty image. Yes. Very.
Moon cries in vain...ReplyDelete
All that glitters is not gold.ReplyDelete
But glitters tempt...
Wow, we speak of cosmic equations...such imageryReplyDelete
Damn that temptation!ReplyDelete
A wonderful piece.
Lovely images. I love haiku for its spareness, its compression, yet its vast capacity to encapsulate beauty and truth in a few well-chosen words.ReplyDelete
I see a shooting star,ReplyDelete
Can I make a wish,
Will my wish be fulfilled or will it also go in vain...
