Early Morning Haikus...

had it been
just a coffee session
you'd have come


*****************

the truth often
is a lump in your throat
when you lie

Liked the analogy of truth and the lump. A lump of sugar is sweet, but when one wants something more, and the other does not, it is bitter.

I have always loved haikus. Its beguiling simplicity draws me. Same way it did now.

I adored the vaguely accusing (but even accusing may be too strong a word) tone to the first haiku.

There always is so much going on in haiku and tanka because you fill in your own words and meaning.

I love love love them. Glad I found yours.
