Passing by

sometimes I know you ~ the stranger along the road ~ and sometimes I don’t — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Malmö 2018/08

Listen

those deaf to silence ~ will not understand the words ~ born from our silence — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Namibia 2017/01

White noise

I don’t understand ~ what it is you want to say ~ but I will listen — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Uncomprehensible

I would understand ~ if it came in a bottle ~ this far-off message — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Disentangle

we’re all tangled up ~ when the connection is made ~ we can straighten out — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Opening

breaking the stillness ~ my thoughts shatter into words ~ some of which you catch — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Twigged

you kept listening ~ to all that I did not say ~ then you understood — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Locked

where do we go to ~ when we fathom that our hearts ~ are not ours to give? — © 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

Insight

he knew as she knew ~ that it would happen someday ~ but neither knew when — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa
