My Kind of Haiku

A Stone
like my heart
can be polished
You are sleeping
I watch
knowing you are safe
Tears
like screams
run silent
The window
catches the sun
warmly
Red lights reflect
lives of strangers
entwined
I listen
to the sound
of love breathing
I watch
you come and go
I am in awe

    • I know you do! I had forgotten the traditional Haiku was 5,7,5 syllables and I think there is one more combination (3,5,3?) but I decided the concept was similar. I might have to play with some traditional ones. Thanks for your comment. Jx
