Call It What You Will (Page 4) compilation of some older posts

green gecko dragon
under gentle falling rain
dancing on bamboo

.....

tall trees graze the sky
nibbling sunshine, dribbling
dappled bits of shade

.....

poets and lovers
hunch over the bottomless
well of heartache

.....

even in unveiled sadness
her beauty incites tears
I cry twice

.....

setience rekindled
eyes are brightened, heart is thawed
smiles from a daughter

.....

blue swells of sadness
gliding atop a smooth groove
she knows it by heart

.....

the poet is lost
cries for help in metaphor
none come to his aid

.....

she waits for the mail
playing loves me loves me not
daisey petals rule

.....

a moment, captured
in gentle eloquence
the poet smiles

.....

a confirmed recluse
his own shadow annoys him
tooooooooo louddddd

.....

I adore these, they encompass poetry, love, compassion and more.

This is consummate poetry.

thank you.

I'm happy you found them effective. I think Haiku is best when it just pours out easily, spontaneously.
I have to work on mine most of the time, then worry if that natural, instantaneous feeling has been lost.
But even if so, I hope the puzzle, the ah! ha!, or the visual is enough to stir a chuckle of recognition.

thanks again

Al
