Alight (Haiku)

I’m back with another haiku … still trying out new forms and working them till I’m comfortable with them.  This one came from a friend’s conversation, where she likened love to a butterfly that alights on your shoulder – so delicate, but so close you can see it’s intricacies.  So, this is inspired by and dedicated to my beautiful friend Itrina….

Flower in full bloom opens

Sipping nectar now.

  1. Haiku’s are a really interesting form of poetry for me. I think it takes just as much creativity to say everything you want to say in such little space. Actually, that sort of reminds me of Twitter too. Maybe that’s a techie’s version of a Haiku.

    • Maybe it is! Twitter – the techie’s Haiku 😀 That sounds like a new poem hehe Will mull it over 🙂

      Thanks! And I’m glad you liked the poem 🙂 I think it takes even MORE creativity to say exactly what you want with this form – you are so restricted; it really makes you work at justifying every single word. 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
