Love



you are my morning
embrace in snow veiled garden,
dazzling as the sun


~0~0


you are my green grass
shelter of restless spirit, 
anchor in the storm


-0~0


you are my evening
home in the forest, cradling 
my sharp claws to rest


Happy hearts day everyone !!!

  5. ah I do like extended haikus, I often find a lonely haiku missing that "finish" I like to see in a poem - I also like how you've kept true to the precedent established in the first one (oh dear, legalese creeping through) - the "you are's" the "embrace/shelter/home" then the last line contrasting sharp or frenetic things with peace - the anchor - claws to rest - nicely done!

    1. Thanks for the compliment. I try to stick to the original haiku form of contrasting images instead of just trying to fit it into 17 syllables.
