Still sharing

in soundless loudness ~ the echo of our being ~ the noise of our song —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Things change

we have been caught up ~ in the still expectation ~ of our destiny —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Sitting

until yesterday ~ we have never been so still ~ utterly content —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Pebbling

at the river mouth ~ balancing a stack of stones ~ lost in childhood thoughts —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Social distancing

we are never far ~ always touching the same star ~ now dreaming apart —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Bygone era

throughout the decade ~ we’ve been so wise and prudent ~ yet fearless to boot —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

rain on a tin roof ~ dry red dust between my toes ~ child of Africa —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
