Footprint

(Image Source: http://www.carcabin.com)



Footprints on my heart,
Etched by memories galore,
Hollow chasm within.

Tears agonizing,
Footprints swept away, deluge,
Search them on my wound.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Footprint.

  1. I will never understand Haiku ... but this one is different ... because I know about tears, I guess ...

  5. Lovely wording of a hard thought. It may be positive that tears wash away the footprints, but the wounds remain and healing takes a while. I think we'll be reading lots of sad poems for this prompt.

  8. Reflecting on good times can sadly be disrupted. Challenges abound to offer resistance! Nicely Green!

  16. The dissonance between "etched" and "hollow" is jarring--and makes the reader perk up and pay attention!
