free form Haiku

Over the years I have been writing poetry, some of it in the form of haiku. There is the traditional 5-7-5 syllable three line form, as well as free form haiku, which can be shorter or longer. Since this is my author’s page, I will post some haiku here as the mood strikes me and hope you like it. Let me know.

ladybugs bask in the sun
of oncoming winter
happy in a moment’s bliss


oh such happiness

the sad heart could sing

if it were still alive


no structure confines the mind

except its capacity to see

the Face of God


The dust covers the glass table

to remind us

we will gather there one day


holding and letting go

the leaves await the breeze

that will blow them away
