One Morning

	And one morning 
	at breakfast with her
	we started
	an unbelievable dream,
	shining and swelling 
	with a need to be intimate
	in this all too human world,
	seeking out
	that sun-like light,
	that tasty center,
	that knowing.

        And she knew
        the language of that dream,
        spoken only in tongues,
        whose long words of the heart
        washed down on me
        like the last words on earth,
        like rippling music, 
        like gentle milk.

    Hi Jack,,, oh no you did not have to remove the haiku. It was a small surprise. I'd seen the movie titled by the same title of your poem. IT was a powerful haiku, and made a good secret for the contest... I was not offended at all by it, but others might not take well to the white-hood and the tree image. To me it was just a poem, and a secret that could disturb folks around here. he he, I'm not sensitive OR am I ~wink wink... Immediately I knew it must had been a past family secret xox~PD

    It was a secret from me for a very long time. However, I think it was right for me to delete it. I have also asked the sponsor of the contest to delete it. I'll have to rethink my collection of secrets, and try again. Thanks again for your observation. I really appreciate it. Jack

    Thanks, Linda. I enjoyed visualizing them "talking" over breakfast. It must have been a revelation. Jack
