Daily Haiku – Fri. February 28, 2020

Senryu
 
You came upon me
enchanting, teasing and slick
You left with the wind

Faces

Faces

Faces forming
in fluffy clouds
clearly visible
to the mind’s eye
Is it only I
who can see
and be the subject
of mockery?
 
The pareidolia 
of creative sight
whether the surface
of the moon
or the trunk
of a tree
Is it only I
who can see?

Taking Flight

Taking Flight

As you lie gracefully
in the ashes
of your self esteem,
planning your comeback
The momentum
slowly builds
with your confidence
until you rise
spectacularly
like the phoenix
Fierce 
and fearless
taking flight

Veneer – A Quadrille

Veneer

Full of bluster
and confidence
but you were broken
when I found you
 
As I peeled away
the layers of
your thick veneer
beneath was
a wretched soul
 
Beaten and bruised
by life’s tragic sorrows
A product of your
environment
You took no prisoners
