Paper-boat



Run paper-boat, run,
Through myriad dreams of sand,
Shape them with your touch.

Paddle through the night,
Sinking in divine glory,
Let's sail to the moon.

Noah held the torch,
As waves caressed your soft skin,
Paper-boat, savior.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Paper-boat.

  8. I enjoyed your set of haiku very much, I could not pick a favourite this time because I like them all. "paper-boat savior" sums them up nicely/
