Frozen Heart

          I will move away
from his winter bleached white heart 
       Redemption draws nigh

     The place I met him
no longer its warmth entice
     Serve me a red heart

   Thoughts of him gone cold
as red scorn bled love vein dry
    Green pastures I see

    Joy; I love this poem. It has a lot of feeling. For years I felt like that - like I had a frozen heart. God took care of that. Something else happened and now I just feel lonely. Thanks for sharing. Lucilla

    Joy if 5 people write for your contest in 1 poem do all five have to mention giving presents to each other in each of the 5 verses of 8 lines or less? This will be very confusing to rank? DO all 5 enter the same poem to you? HELP

    Joy it's a thrill for me for you to ask for help, I enjoy helping almost as much as writing. I have done a number of blogs on haiku and folks I believe are sick of hearing me talk about haiku BUT I will talk to you here. [soup mail is an extra step, time's limited] YES the FRAGMENTED LINE which can be line 1 or line 3 [for now let's stay with those 2] HAS TO relate to the other two lines but NOT BE cause & effect.

    Think of taking a SNAP SHOT to write a simple beginners haiku you DESCRIBE what's IN the shot. [in traditional haiku you would not use 'I' the minute you do ..you are bound to become subjective..your thoughts, opinions, fantasies, you do not make a judgement about what you see] [ a single rose lays/ on a snow covered grave/ footprints]

    Although my main focus now is AllPoetry, and no longer the soup, I will always be close by for you. Promise. hugs, catie :)

    Well..verse 1/you do have lines 1 & 2 gramatically joined that's a +..you should not used [winter bleached white] it is you making a judgement about the state of the man's metaphoric heart..haiku tries to stay OBJECTIVE/factual ...also line 3 is sumjective Verse 1 shows use 2 parts which is a + too but line three would be called 'cause & effect' based on your personal conclusions ..verse 1 is not haiku BUT could be senryu for you can be subjective in a senryu!

    Joy haiku has a strong FOCUS on a literal image, sight sound taste smell..your 3 very good verses do not show us a scene. You are telling a story, not showing, no reason at all to call them haiku they could be, senryu or Free verse or Verse
