Still



still as wind,
tree murmurs softly,
last heartbeat

~0~0

he takes the clean brush
painting canvas full of life,
art, still his first love

~0~0

her black eyes
stilled his hopes for love,
white blossoms wilted

  11. There's always an air of serenity about your haiku. Lovely set, Grace. My favourite is the last stanza.

  12. Each is so different; I like them all. And the second made me think of artwork, which is still and yet lovely - like a poem.
