Heartsong

writing those lyrics ~ all the words to our music ~ fill a gentle space —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Soweto rising

found in the ashes ~ if a heart that is burning ~ with every day’s light —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Barcelona, Spain: September 2018

chaotic sound storm ~ letting the city come in ~ through a bay window —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Pause

spare a moment please ~ for sharing a memory ~ in my rhymeless poems —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Catching stars

we vaulted heavens ~ building sturdy foundations ~ around our being —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Last year

winter’s warming scent ~ of cinnamon and spice bakes ~ and of smiling eyes —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

No ceiling

don’t let go of me ~ take me with you on your mind-flight ~ amongst butterflies —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
