Streak

I find in your eyes ~ a thousand green butterflies ~ and one of pure blue —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Emptied out

she’s no longer there ~ whispering words without sound ~ the breath of her soul —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Replication

in a candle’s flame ~ seeing your eyes reflecting ~ most beautiful scenes —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Entering

pulling up a seat ~ sitting at the firelight ~ of the music played —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Distance

a longing that hurts ~ but that’s also beautiful ~ in its profound depth —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Retrospect

if we could just read ~ the right book at the right time ~ life would be simple —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Looking in

although I’m writing ~ I know I will never sing ~ this sweet melody —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
