My Haiku 2

O’er Sand and Water, Sea of Green.
The Golf Ball-
Soars, as an Eagle.

Playful can be,
At a ripe old age-
A state of mind.

A sleepless night.
The written word-
Demands attention.

Endless days
Sleepless nights-
Insomnia.

Nice one Eric! You still have a playful mind. (Going for a kip myself now.)

Eric Valentine said...

Thank you Swen. The mind has to stay alive, if only in dreams at times. :)

Eric, These are so good. I knew from your post title that you must have some more haiku tucked away somewhere, so I went in search of your first haiku. I liked them all, too, especially the one about thinking of blades of grass in the wintertime.

Eric Valentine said...

I am so glad you enjoyed them Forsythia.
You are right about the others, I did put in a hyperlink, so all you would need is to click to get the other poems.

Haha yes winter would make anyone think of green grass I think.. :)
