first poem
uncharted journey,  
sweet red plums  

~0~0

lover's kiss
soft as butterfly,
summer rain

~0~0

your goodbye,  
frame in black and white, 
stinging bee

  1. Every poem, I think, is an uncharted journey. Some end up as sweet as plums and some, well, we know how those taste, don't we? :)

  25. The skill of Haiku writing is profound and I think you have it. Here I detect the influence of William Carlos Williams (whose name is longer than his effective lines)--because of the plums, of course. That first bite of poetry is juicy like that and unapologetic, even if written before the first kiss. The three tell a story moving from innocence to experience, with even the break-up as another poem, a stinger, framed. Powerful writing. (it looks like you are saying "Oh, Oh" between each one--I missed it on #3 LOL)
