Heart Strumming Haiku May 3, 2015 by apoetic1 4 Beyond baseline beats this treble defines trouble shredding flat-line streaks Worlds catching fire serving judgment with disdain The outcome’s dire Name dripping from lips where shifty frames lost their games Shame’s leaving its tips I’ve lost love and time breaching steady vibrations toeing heart’s fault line Stability screeched as reality broke in leaving hope impeached Retreat and mourning granting gentle spirit’s rest til healing’s dawning Regret fell on steps making their way toward peace Only none was left Fate mocked in her way, “You never loved a man who you liked anyway” Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading...

Nice. The last line is perfect. I haven’t seen this style of haiku before with the rhyming scheme. It’s pretty cool and gives more of a flow – maybe that’s why you called it strumming.
Stop reading my mind! 🙂 This is the one I’ve been grappling with for a few weeks. It began as a half written old poem of mine, but it was tethered to the past in an unsatisfactory way, representing feelings I no longer feel. So, after I got past the notion of trying to resurrect those emotions for the sake of this piece, I decided to make it a different type of labor… an ongoing haiku… that strummed together the breadcrumbs which led to said enlightenment. Anyway, thanks… and I really don’t mind you reading my mind.
