Loneliness

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


Silent murmurs play,
Navigate, meandering sea,
Eyes speaking sorrow.

Loneliness hugs tight,
Memories interwoven,
Silken fingers wave.

Dawn and dusk, puzzled,
Valley crumbles, an earthquake?
Heart beating, aloof.


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

  22. This made me cry for... joy? ... despair? ... I really don't know ... or maybe I do know, because you looked right into my heart ... Love, cat.
