Haiku Ten – Eight

This haiku welcomes
Musical orchid delight
In verse melodies

Connections through time
Directing education
Emancipation

Words ignite desires
Passions flow beneath covers
Pleasures of reading

A spring flower blooms
Smiling eyes bursting with joy
Beauty in season

Reasons forgotten
Light dims with every heartbeat
Your touch haunts me still

Captured by your smile
Laughing eyes show me the way
Darkness never dawns

Questions surround me
Answers move into focus
Silence without tears

Laughter without tears
Silence without loneliness
Nothing without pain

Restless thoughts ramble
Shadows whisper endlessly
Silhouettes dancing

On a stormy night
An Old Dark House mystery
Imagination

Haiku Ten – Seven

Writing for many
Haiku in social circles
An undying art

Shadows on the screen
Living a nitrate daydream
Moments in darkness

Ruby lips entice
Smiling eyes pluck at heart strings
Beauty is timeless

Weary thoughts ignite
Forgotten memories burn
Dreaming in shadows

Lost in memories
Searching for hope in shadows
A dreamer awakes

Desires become one
And release hidden passions
Silence the darkness

Gentle thoughts caress
Distraction clouds my vision
Reflecting desires

Grey light surrounds me
Shadows fade into the night
Longing for your kiss

Early evening chill
A relentless rain pours down
Prelude to springtime

Not the Ides of March
About ole St Patrick’s Day
Time for a birthday

Haiku Ten – Six

In a tight embrace
Lost in the rhythm of you
Takes my breath away

Twilight dreams awake
Mirrored shadows become light
Meaning in rhythm

Reflecting passion
A moment frozen in time
A lingering kiss

Thoughts preserved in ink
Words silent beneath covers
Worlds of wonder

Early morning light
The melody of shadows
Forgotten moments

Seeping through the cracks
Dreams awaken from slumber
Stardust in my eyes

Late night rendezvous
Shadows move into light
Silent passions flow

A heartbeat pauses
Fragmentary moments pass
Searching for the truth

Silent melodies
Twilight lingers in pale light
Darkness over takes

A gentle rain falls
Clouds part, sun shines, birds rejoice
Spring will soon be here

Haiku Ten – Five

Dreams live forever
A frozen moment in time
Just paper in fire

Words crowd around me
Lost in thought as time passes
Only memories

Lies betray the words
Hiding behind smiling eyes
Deceit becomes truth

A lost Valentine
Searching the maelstrom of love
A Twitter romance

Pausing for a breath
Broken memories calling
Lost horizons blur

Waiting patiently
All dressed for a holiday
Silent companion

Lips touch, lost in time
A sweet embrace, dreams fulfilled
Silver screen desires

A single snow drop
Beauty reaching to the sun
Garden of desires

Excitement rises
Lights dim, the projector whirls
Then there was silence

Black and white day dreams
Longing for silent kisses
Lost in the shadows

Haiku Ten – Four

Soulful eyes embrace
Delicate soft lips to kiss
Beauty in full bloom

Lie back in comfort
Watch the flakes float by and dance
Whispered thoughts of spring

Longing for darkness
Peace and serenity shines
The light of sadness

Echoes fade in light
Shifting winds and silent flakes
A gentle snow falls

The snow has fallen
All rejoiced at the beauty
Then there was silence

Passions sharing thoughts
Amidst cold winds and dark skies
No blossoms in bloom

A cloak of wonder
Unseen to unknowing eyes
Hidden from within

From this point of view
Gazing into eyes so blue
Tears like morning dew

Frosted windows blur
Thoughts stir of days long ago
Your thoughts guides me still

Lost in thoughts again
Memories of you burn bright
Shadows moving in

A Silent Kiss Haiku

Buster Keaton & Kathryn McGuire in “The Navigator” (1924)

 

Haiku Ten – Three

With gentle caress
Tender pink petals unfold
Beauty in full bloom

Silken pink surrounds
As sweet nectar flows freely
Beauty holds me tight

Blue eyes wrap round me
Glimpsed depths, promises so fine
We’ve only begun

Tender buds exposed
Sweet scent excite the senses
Visual splendour

Gentle hands nurture
Delicate beauty displayed
Intoxicating

Open and exposed
In the moment stillness flows
Anticipation

Silken threads combine
Forming words from thoughts divine
Rhythm of ribbons

Notes from faraway
With thoughts of friends long ago
All but forgotten

Thoughts into action
Desires waken and yearning
Exciting moments

Morning eyes greet me
Just before all the dreams fade
Spellbound in silence
