Haiku of Love

look at his smile

love comes from that place

he is radiant


look at his smile

as he stands beneath that oak

above a crow flies


love comes from that place

the breeze touches us

the crow caws


he is radiant

sun shines down through the tree

this love is real

Hamish and Chevrefeuille continue with this month’s theme about the senses. We are asked to incorporate love into a haiku.

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. these are beautiful. It almost feels like you’re laying out photos of him at various points in life and describing each frozen moment 🙂 I love collections of haiku especially when they look at a series of moments from different angles.
