Treasure Island

Kelvin Owusu

(15-10-1988 / Ghana)

Haiku (R.I.P)

Heaven calls to her
hell grabs him hung a neck noose
sorrows bloom teary

Fly from here to next
beyond a blissful dreamer
rain dropp butterfly

Cover in dark light blindness
Foresight judgement heaven cry

    One is heaven bound, the other is a butterfly in the rain! Both will cause tears to fall? A lot said in your Haiku. Interesting! (Report) Reply
