~HAIKU~

Note: About two years after I wrote these I discovered that they are not Haiku, but Senryu. They do not address nature as required by the Haiku form. I took the liberty of leaving the Haiku title, because it is a wider known term, and because they are about love and friendship which are part of our "nature".


A FRIEND CAN HURT YOU
IN THE HEART BY DISPLAYING
UNFOUNDED DISTRUST


A FRIEND CAN FASHION
GREAT JOY IN YOUR HEART JUST BY
ADMITTING REGRET


KINDRED SPIRITS PULLED
BY GENERATIONS APART
NEVER-THE-LESS MEET


HOW I COULD LOVE YOU
IF ONLY YOU I COULD LOVE
ONLY YOU I WOULD


THOUGH NOT SEXUAL
MORE THAN PLATONIC ARE WE
LOVE GOES MUCH DEEPER


WHAT HAVE WE BECOME?
KINDRED SPIRITS OR SOULMATES
MORE THAN EVEN THAT


YOU ARE SO LIKE ME
WE ARE BOTH TRAPPED BY LOVES WHO
JUST DON'T CARE ENOUGH
