Her Hopes

her smile gives away
the hopes she hides in eyes
his sun shine gone pale ..

He empties his heart in words and sets them free in winds ; knowing well  she stands on the roof top catching every sheet of paper that flies from his room. Each night she builds new hopes from them.

  3. Hmmm, this is filled with mystery. Is he torturing her? Too scared to speak up? Is she deluding herself? Intriguing.

  4. so true…happens at times with many…intense…thoughtful…loved the take…awesome… :)

  5. I enjoyed your haiku. My favorite line is the second “the hopes she hides in eyes”. How many times have I tried to hide my hopes – just in case. :-) Well done.
