Pleasure: three haiku



children laughing
beach of sugary sand
surrounding the forever lake

tea with a friend
not talking just being
knowing what it is to be quiet

walking on the breakwall
sunset spreads a vibrant light
sun dies slowly

  2. Sometimes the sun does die slowly, and sometimes it seems to happen in an instant! Lovely write!

  3. This is definitely a "feel good" poem.
    Lovely imagery.

  4. Your haiku is always so easy to read and filled with scenes that we can relate to, touching us with memories of our own.

  6. Great to be with someone when there's no talking, just being.
