HAIKU BALLAD by Susan Mehr

In all innocence,
Nature dances once again,
And Melody sings.

Vein on neck pulsates,
Your soft caresses slow time,
And love embraces.

Souls fire burns warm,
Eyes twinkle, dimples appear,
All I ever dream.

Nature by Susan Mehr


Haiku one…

Autumn, Winter, Spring,
Life wakes, Babes are born, Earth sings.
Then Summer explodes.


Haiku two…

A sprinkle of Sun,
Unfolds a carpet of blooms,
And Rain starts to cry.
