Soft Kissing Tides




soft kissing tides
make love to the moon
in shadow of stars
~ o ~
the sun sleeps
in his heavenly abode
behind the peak
~ o ~
brownish petals
adorn her dusty stories
fragrance long lost
~ o ~
holding the staff
the child commands the waves
to caress his feet
~ o ~
futile ripples
navigate his heart
hurt by stone
~ o ~
dark chants
lay hidden in the pit
undisturbed
~ o ~
her lost song
now rings in his ears
too late to return
~ o ~
magic calls
dreams should be nurtured
instill belief and faith
~ o ~
after the storm
birds fly to the horizon
in search of peace
~ o ~
she locks her heart
safe in golden casket
the suitors bid
~ o ~
fake powders
hide her wrinkles
not her age
~ o ~
haiku written
on a warm Sunday
I smile

  14. Nice set of haikus. I read them as one poem the first time through and they seemed to work for me that way as well as individually.

  15. So glad I found you at The Sunday Whirl! Your haiku are beautiful, but the best was the opening, with the romance between the moon and the tides. Such a sensual, earthy thought. Beautiful job with the words, too! Happy NaPoWriMo, Amy
