Sun, Rain (Two Haiku Poems)


Wasting summer sun

Winter’s always hungover

She drinks October


May’s rain drowns all drought

Showering the land in drops

She loves God’s puddles

Frost, Float (Two Haiku Poems)

Your frozen crown tilts one side

As smug frost collides


Hopeless in this moat

Negative waves jerk my rope

Good thoughts never float

So while I was revisiting some of my older poems (which I exemplified in I Often Wander In Circles), I had several short poems and leftover stanzas that were trimmed off and honestly I really didn’t know what to do with them. As terrible as it may sound, I have deleted a fair share of poetry over the years (which is why I wrote Erased as a post reflection of those times) so there was a risk of that reoccurring.

Well anyways, after holding these recent snippets in my back pocket for a while I decided to try turning them into a series of Haiku poems. I haven’t written much of these before, so if I missed the mark with these, please let me know.  Who knows, if they really are that bad, I may delete them =)
