the themes of those books ~ weave the mysteries in us ~ yet the young don’t read — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Lund 2018/08

Opening up

when you read me ~ when you become my story ~ we gently unfurl — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Incantations

in those silent spells ~ I don’t want to read your words ~ but will fly with you — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Status quo

anticipation ~ I remain an unread book ~ you a mere idea — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Peeled

when you read my poems ~ they are unedited me ~ with layered meaning — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
