Eight Haiku Poems by R.I. Károly

 



Eight Haiku Poems




dawn


eyes folded in dreams

opening to the water

falling from the stars

 

overthink


shadow of a doubt

hanging low above our heads

eclipsing the sun

 

june night


moonlight on the shore

falling on my barefoot dreams

wading in the surf

 

wisdom


silence of the crows

feathering in memories

perched upon my years

 

discord


the strings of my heart

play dissonant harmonies

ice cracks in their wake

 

treasure map


follow the secret

constellations on your skin

point me to true north

 

current


lulled by surge and crash

the hands of the changing winds

pull upon my sails

 

lemuria


anemone song

lulling lost souls to respite

dream eternally
