Those That I Love

Haiku Friday

My theme this week is People I Love.
These haiku are about various folks, some obvious, some maybe not so much.

My hand on her foot,
her head lying on my chest,
she is my treasure.
His laugh is so loud
Others stop to look at this
boy who fills my heart.
Sunlight filters through
leaves dancing in the soft breeze.
Children run and play.
His hand on my face,
silence covers our whole world.
There is no one else.
When I talk to her,
I can be all of myself.
She is my best friend.
When they are first born
Your heart grows, just like the Grinch.
They make me better.
Her voice is music.
I could listen forever.
Tell me your stories.
There are many days
when she is the only one,
make me laugh sea cow.
He used to seem tall
standing in the door laughing,
Setting my standard.
With the slightest look
she can bring the walls crashing
And the tears fall down.
Her hands are like mine,
Only much older and stained
by the sands of time.
Her hands are like mine,
Only much smoother and bright
The future is hers.
When he sings I melt
The history of my life
Runs into my shoes.

Wonderful haiku poetry, Serina. I bought a calendar for 2008 of Japanese art with a haiku on each month.

Wow. You did such a good job, I might retire from writing about excrement and try my hand at something worthwhile & profound.
