passing hands
for one sip each

romance in haiku (with prompted items from NaHaiWriMo wall)

#16
packing for one
except
our toothbrushes

#16b
morning waves
lapping on our toes—
in a wink sunset

#16c
the lake
ahhh—
a hand clasp

#16d
arrival gate
blur of a hundred faces
except yours

end of winter clouds–
their heartbeats the only sound
between them

spring–
between patches of night sky
a pregnant moon

Numbered items from NaHaiWriMo wall. Romance in haiku because of its compact, disciplined form reads more intense for me, more compelling from what’s unsaid. What do you think?
