Best Poem of Sonya Florentino

# # A Sudden Turn (With Haiku Version - My Very First!)

A SUDDEN TURN (original version)

a fish darts forward

as water lilies re-arrange in the water

centered, in the moment


til it once again flits by

or a bird swoops down as suddenly

from the sky

A SUDDEN TURN (Haiku version)

a fish darts forward

water lilies re-arrange

space in the water


moment unbroken

til fish again flits by, or

bird swoops down from high

Red Sky

Your love for me is right
But I am paralysed
Out of breath, scared to death
The sky is turning red

Your love for me is true
As what I'm going through
My heart is full, love has ruled
The sky's no longer blue

[Hata Bildir]
