Haiku University - Poem by DAYO PETERS DESINA


Eyes on my wife

He confessed:
“God is great”

Twelve bachelors

Died in the hand
Of a spinster

Hands on the head
Feet on the floor:
Death of the duke

Sand in his rice
He forgot the happiness
Of yester-years

My love dies

At the death

Of your money

There is a fly

On the tie
Of your fly

Red light sisters

In red gowns:
I am a high sinner

The investors

And the debtors
Killed the creditors

The church of God

Put a veil
On my happiness

Asking: “who

Told you

I am dead? ”

Mangoes run

Oranges burn
The harvest is not come

You and I

Divided minds
Bonded together

The Haiku is Japanese traditional invention of a complete poem in three lines of seventeen syllables convention but insisting on the seventeen syllables in other languages will deprive the haiku of the peculiarities, which other languages may infuse into it. The haiku summarizes the very essence of life in three lines, which, to the best of my knowledge, is what these poems of mine expresses.
