Haiku Heights


Haiku Heights #288 Wilted

cold downpour, solace
to the heart, yet the scars of
yesterdays deepen


--------


Haiku Heights #289 Carnival

blue, green, red, yellow
rich costumes, blasting music
the feet itch to dance

  1. This is the mystery of rain, it can give solace while it makes you feel your wounds more intensely.

    The noises that colours put into music, and the blasting costumes reach down to where the feet touch mother Earth, and these caresses get an answer in the vernacular language.

    Your haikus are a better expression in less words of so wonderful ideas.

    Thank you so much, BB!!
