DUALITY (5 Haikus)

Opt not for a fling
My head often gets this itch
Life’s a boomerang

Sneak in solitude
Trouble’s uninvited, I’m
Often audacious

The bridges we built
Shrink distances between us
Let us burn them down

Parallel we walk
Perpendicular we get
Stop on a dot, we.

Breaths I need to breathe
Breathing is so hard to keep
When her breath’s around

Written for Haiku prompt “Duality”

  1. Oh these are both clever and deep nicely done!

  2. Nice job. I got major respect for writers capable of writing haikus. They seem like the most entertaining form of poetry to write. Unfortunately, I have never been able to master the process.

  3. wow, very good! I talk too much to create Haikus… lol

  4. So brilliantly and smartly put! All the five are equally amazing but my heart lingered over a bit longer @5.

  5. All of them are amazing but my personal favourites are #3 and #4! Well done!


  6. I should like to uplift these for possible use in a future issue of ‘the zen space’.
