Poems On Blue (Imperfect Haikus)


Martyr

A martyr of the soil
Entombed in narcissism
Feeding on cyanide


Fading

Like a lone flower
Wilting to the sun
Embracing the blues


Symphony of Umbrellas

On the ocean front
Umbrellas hovering in the wind
Love is in the air


Transparent Desire

Saturated yearning
Gazing at a turquoise baby doll
Dancing pupils


The Union

The azure sky and the cyan ocean
Merging at the horizon
Marriage of heaven and earth


A Flower's Dance

Floating in the wind
Is a single turquoise flower
Rhapsody in blue

    It may be an imperfect haiku but it has a spellbounding imagery

    A martyr of the soil
    Entombed in narcissism
    Feeding on cyanide

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Know'st thou not at the fall of the leaf
How the heart feels a languid grief
Laid on it for a covering,
And how sleep seems a goodly thing
