Waves

herald sends love notes

enamored of collisions

ocean kisses land

This haiku has a pivot element (linguistic device – Apo-Koinou), meaning the first two lines can be read together as well as the last two.

When sea misses land…

He laid awake and said the name into the night.

“Do I really miss her?”, asked his mind. He couldn’t deny. Everything in his line of sight reminded him of her today.

freaking aches of heart

demented brain dithers
