The Haiku Gem - Poem by john tiong chunghoo

i wish each of my haikus
to be a facet of the
diamond and a hundred haikus
its hundred facets clamouring
to let your heart shine

i wish each of my haikus
to be the lustrious taut petal
of the sacred pink lotus

and twenty of my haikus
that elegant spread
that holds up the
goodness of day
as each second unfolds
the loving touch of the sun
