Raised From The Scroll - Poem by Argentine Tango

I'm running just like
The tears down my cheek and ink
on the tear-stained page

I'm running behind
But write looking forward to
Times that live in words

As a new dawn breaks
Life is breathed into the chest
Of words ‘til they wake

My sorrow they take
And settle my restless soul
Words raised from the scroll

Poet's Notes about The Poem

Fun with haiku form
times four, although maybe now
that should be times five...

    It was a fantastic read, but I suppose it was fun also. Never have got haikus much but hopefully I can learn (Report) Reply
