in haiku •  2 years ago  (edited)

Here's day twenty-eight of my reflection off of @brokemancode's haiku contest.

Red

Red has two faces
Color of weakness and strength
Roses, blood and fire.

Lust, liquor and love
Three scents of desecration
Anointed they fall

  • The photo and first haiku is brokemancode's while the second was inspired from his.

Journey almost done
I surrendered riverside
With strength you strode on.

A clearing ahead
Smoldering with broken vows
It beckons me on

I am wondering
If you dream in haikus now
Last night I steem dreamed.

A blessing or curse
Choose one as you may, my dear
For I do not dream

I care not for dreams
It is sleep which eludes me
Trade visions for rest.

Body run ragged
Abused by excess and lack
Mine sleep's recipe
