Quietly

and we slip away ~ to the edge of the water ~ without diving in — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa: Adds are not mine — Photo: Scania 2018/08

My ocean

to breathe your fresh air ~ to loiter at your waters ~ my wish for today — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Upstream

the secrets we keep ~ those that only we will share ~ amongst all others — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

sipping thoughts

on a liquid day ~ you bring a mercury mind ~ the shape of water — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Stroomop

fly against the tide ~ if that is where your dreams lead ~ swim amongst the clouds — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Wet rain

living like water ~ we flow into crevices ~ unexplored before — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Waking up

blushing morning sun ~ thoughts running away with me ~ flowing like water — Lize Bard © Haiku out of Africa

Sheltered

this is where I hide ~ in the stillness of your touch ~ the depth of your eyes

Unaffected

slipping from my pen ~ without pretence or control ~ a river of thoughts
