Some Haiku

October 15, 2016

Haven’t been writing a ton, but I have accumulated some haiku over the last couple years. I figured I would put them all in one place, so here they are.

Patience

Articulation
is a precise art, and so
I fear my great thoughts.

Awareness

I conform, and they
see it as maturity.
But I know better.

Death

Knowing that the end
Is not the end of all things
Allows one to live.

Example

Birds fly focused— on
Important matters, but what
If I’m not that smart?

Constant

Metamorphosis
does not end with shedding a
butterfly’s cocoon.

Silence

All that I can do
sometimes is shake my head in
exasperation.

Towards Faith

Tyrannical doubt
holds the truth hostage in the
guise of longing hope.

Growing Old

Being wrong is hard
And more conscious as time is
Inexorable.

A Better Person

What choice do I have?
But fucking, pissing, puking
Through life, except you.

Wabi

Bricks stacked end on end
Make romance in a facade
Rustic, imperfect.

Hubris

When one has answers
To every situation
There are really none.

Short

However many
Days I have are not enough
To say I love you.
