Little Miss Homo Sapien's Cave

Haikus

When summertime stings
In the desert I will serve
As your oasis.

~

Combing for pebbles
To throw as far as I could
On the open sea. 

~

As waves crash to shore
The hammock stirs lustfully
By the slightest waft.

~

Linens on clotheslines
Tripping the light fantastic
To the autumn gales.

Star, when will you fall?
I’ve been swooning on the bench
Since dusk and now dawn.

    • I’m in love with idioms 😉

      • Ah, such a powerful at that… 🙂 I love researching the history of idioms, and the story of that one is as interesting as every one of them.

      • “a powerful *one* at that”.. hehehe…Sorry for the typo.

      • Right, learning about the history of idioms is one of the most pleasurable things to do (for us literary geeks).

        No biggie about the typo – always happens to me.

  2. I always push the like button for a reason, I really enjoyed this poem. I was taught to write with more descriptive words like you actually do in the poems I’ve read that you wrote. I just can’t seem to get a good grasp of writing with more concrete words creating the imagery I see in your poems. So just letting you know I admire the pictures you paint when you write.

    • Thank you Lester. It always warms my heart to know that there are people like you who appreciate my poems. I’m sure you’ll get in the right flow of your ideas and words one of these days – it’s just the Block, you’ll get out of it eventually.

  4. LOVE the first haiku (and the others, too!). That’s something I would see in a book and write down to remember.

    I love your haikus. They are short, but sweet. I need to learn to write an haiku.

    • Haiku is the loveliest and most fulfilling form of poetry to write.

      Go and create some. 🙂
