Haiku 17 - double

The small, full moment  
of love in the afternoon. 
Awkward and nuanced.
               •
Small, empty moment,
a remembrance of passion. 
My constant sadness.

    Thanks. I wrote them separately, then noticed the fit.

    Jack, these are truly excellent haikus...some of my favorite in a while. And yes, the addition of bipolar in my monoku is meant to convey the double meaning...or personalities in a haiku. Thank you for looking that far into it....Caleb
