Night’s dream dew-laced in dawn’s light
In the luminescence of a tear’s essence
Stars’ crystal lustre pales afore sun’s might
I surrender to the tenderness of their iridescence
To decode interlude of perceptions to make sense
I lay my soul bare in the palette of dyes
As starlight fades in the anthem of birds
I quiet the tears that rise in my eyes
To paint pages with words that can be heard
Lines rise in rhythm, waiting to be savoured.

      1. I just started writing haikus when I joined wordpress. I really enjoy them. I mostly do free verse, wordplay stuff.
