Imperfect perfection

do not hide the flaws ~ they are precious reflections ~ of an unspoilt soul — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Contemplative

against hidden doors ~ that we perceive life to be ~ I sit in wonder — © Lize Bard 2 Haiku out of Africa

Hiding

found my emotions ~ lost in a grey Pierneef cloud ~ that you will not see — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Transparency

seeing right through me ~ even though I try to hide ~ here I am exposed — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Silences

our bodies telling ~ all the incomplete stories ~ hidden in our words — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Imperfections

we can’t hide the cracks ~ they are there for all to see ~ might as well love them — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Blinded

love garbles our views ~ hides our inadequacies ~ a moment’s repose — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Subliminal

below the surface ~ we silence all the demons ~ until the angels sing — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Uncovered

from my hiding place ~ wrapped in a blanket of work ~ I became untucked — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Nooks & crannies

somewhere in my heart ~ I found a small piece of you ~ shyly hiding there — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
