Senryu 1

lies break tender hearts
big strong arms feel very safe
suitcase sits on bed

    Unsung songs and letters not written. A silent remembrance of when you were smitten. A journey into a possible dream. Where reconciled love shines on a moonbeam.

    I loved how you compacted this dramatic scene all into a haiku... the suitcase implying how serious the issue was. A conflict, a twist, and then a conclusion all in three tiny lines... VERY cool!

    :) MD....I'm here! Lies are the worst. I'm afraid of people who lie...you never know where you stand with them. I often tell my daughter...hurt me with the truth. I will bear it...but I can't bear a lie. Lovely thoughts here! HUGS!
