Summer Haiku #8

Each dawn break begins

with hope today is the day–

my dream survived night.



Summer Haiku #5 (redo)

How I think of you!
Moments fade but more appear.
Hope, why die slowly?

I’m struggling with this one. Any suggestions?


Summer Haiku #7

Sunday sunshine stings,
Saying, “Start Succeeding Soul!”
Still sheets surround me.


Summer Haiku #6

Open your soul wide.
Your greatness needs ample space
To instill strong roots.


Summer Haiku #5

How I think of you.
Moments fade into more, yet
Still alone I sit.
