A Walk Home

Squinting in the summer sun

Going back home

Slow steps walked

 

Slow steps walked

Each pushing the next

A sorrowful heart

 

A sorrowful heart

Unchecked emotions

Wishes remained unfulfilled

 

Wishes remained unfulfilled

One last goodbye

Love departs

The fiery sun is out

minds swim in salty seas

wounds burn endlessly

Somewhere along the line, the inner spark for haiku derailed from its course. Here’s picking up the threads and continuing the journey. Again.
