filling my hollows ~ in extraordinary ways ~ with nothing at all —© Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Capacity

this journey of ours ~ through landscapes of emptiness ~ fills all my spaces — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Kalahari 2018/04

Hallsbergsträdgård: Scania, Sweden; August 2018

we travel to space ~ and a moss-green waterfall ~ ephemeral time — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Scania 2018/08

Infill

as silences play ~ around the pebbles of time ~ we fall in the gaps — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Pretoria 2015/12

Gap

there’s an empty space ` where you hover in my thoughts ~ next to me today — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

On the precipice

caught in a child’s art ~ deep thoughts through time and space ~ of life and of death —©

Misplaced

alone in the crowd ~ missing your sense of humour ~ missing my own space — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

In vain

with our futile words ~ we write into the spaces ~ where our hearts should be — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Shape shifting

as our spaces shift ~ a parallel universe ~ gains its final shape — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Legroom

life’s complicated ~ yet we need to find that space ~ we can call our own — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of africa

Celestial

when you have courage ~ meet me here in outer space ~ where we are possible — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Summons

these open spaces ~ with their eternal silence ~ calling out to us — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Access

across the divide ~ you reach to me with your eyes ~ closing vast spaces — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Sprouting

life’s complexities ~ growing deeper into us ~ and our new spaces — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Head space

we’re insulated ~ in the spaces we create ~ for our minds to meet — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Effortlessly

without me asking ~ stepping in the right spaces ~ you show love simply — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Discovery

we found each other ~ in a perfect tumbling space ~ now endlessly lost — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Etherial

through the dark ether ~ tracing the shape of our minds ~ drifting through space-time — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Opinions

completely different ~ kindly individual ~ the way we see things — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Fulfilled

a sweet spaciousness ~ fills all the little hollows ~ and the big ones too — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Infill

my words remain few ~ only half-uttered ideas ~ you fill the spaces — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Tricky

between you and me ~ all the other yous and mes ~ a crowd hard to please — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

In Africa

I wanted to see ~ the many facets of life ~ but the core was here

Deafening

thunderously loud ~ words I never hear you say ~ captured in this place — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Perceptiveness

filled with deep insight ~ your vowels sauntering through me ~ allowing stillness — Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Playing

these are mindscapes ~ these are the spaces we share ~ away from it all

From my window: Malmö, Sweden; December 2017

distance and nearness ~ in the deep December rain ~ of this northern land — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Thoughtfulness

when our minds entwine ~ a new space is created ~ where kindness prevails


© Lize Bard @ https://wandererhaiku.wordpress.com/

Connections

we are just floating ~ like stars in the milky way ~ destined to collide

@ Haiku out of Africa

Wherever

it’s equally short ~ the distance between us ~ either here or there

Liberation

though our hearts are bound ~ we will not enslave our souls ~ to confined spaces


© Lize Bard

@ Haiku out of Africa

Timeless

pebbles on the beach ~ pieces of the universe ~ fragments of always

@ Haiku out of Africa

Note to self

easy, just let go ~ become soft in the moment ~ and drift on the wind


© Lize Bard

@ Haiku out of Africa

Like glass

for just a moment ~ the sky a blood-red marble ~ captured in suspense

What’s left of Rooipoort

here you went to school ~ here you made a love promise ~ a lifetime ago

Gratified

you fill my hollows ~ in extraordinary ways ~ with nothing at all

Earth

it’s a small blue rock ~ with daisies in her backyard ~ this our earthly home


©Lize Bard

Your space

nowhere in the world ~ nowhere in the folds of time ~ is a space like you


© Lize Bard @ https://wandererhaiku.wordpress.com/

Inner space

touching all the stones ~ I swim in your warm embrace ~ desert of my soul
