Victor thank you for paying attention on our train. Yes seems most of us are somehow busy but I hope all are fine. And I am sure a lot of poems will be coming soon, my friend. But Victor we can't say that for you. You seems have been so much inspired icon_smile.gif, and I am happy for that. You give us a pleasure, to enjoy with your poetry.

 

Keep it going Victor.

what is haiku, i don't know well! i love to watch my smokes flying like whitish foil. though i like to utter, what comes from my dirty mind. worthless or useless they are, it can't be realized cause i'm blind!

 

in the night

cloud unseen in the dark

whispering to the breeze...

 

 

i don't know....but if it doesn't fit, then let it go!

Aleksandra, the first line shows a feelings in mind and the second line is its metaphor in front of observer's eyes. the third line merges from two incidents with a new view! in this way (if i am right):

 

moon's nightmare

strikes in owl's mind

like a fire-fly fair

 

 

is it ok with that?

Of course it's ok, Rony! You wrote a wonderful haiku! I'm not so good at haiku. I'll try to keep it going ...

Delight in despair

still mesmerized sitting on a shore

tears glitter like pearls
