50 More Haiku

1
I wept on the floor
The apples are now in bloom
She used to walk there
2
Never have I seen
But the sky was my limit
Now I dig trenches
3
The forest is wise
I sought many answers there
Now I sing with birds
4
The ocean is deep
I wanted to see its bed
I weep now in fear
5
The ocean is deep
I went to see the bottom
My sight is now clear
6
The sky is so free
I sought to reach the heavens
My wings weren’t enough
7
The desert is old
I looked out and across it
Sand hides many things
8
The desert is young
New life blooms while I observe
It is dead by night
9
Stars are sagacious
I recline and listen slow
Many secrets fall
10
Don’t forget the young
They have wisdom beyond years
But they don’t know it

11
You forgot my tears
I kept them in a jar there
You broke it today
12
The sun is cruel
I toil under it daily
Now I see its help
13
Never forget home
It was hell, now its Eden
It will always be there
14
Years have taught me much
I have learned so very much
I am still a fool
15
Flowers bloom on hills
I struggle with rotting dirt
Weeds can still bloom bright
16
The world has cried long
We think its for birthing pains
We’re already born
17
What do we search for
Is it peace for all of us
Or homogeny
18
Did you see the kids
They laughed and played all day long
Don’t they know to cry
19
We have tried so hard
Didn’t it make a difference
Are we not changed
20
My life is for me
You’ve ideas about that
We fight as twins

21
Tie the trees to you
The rocks weigh you down too much
Let the air lift you
22
We do not talk now
I had held you in my heart
My muse is fickle
23
Your eyes entice me
I fell for you far too fast
I do not regret
24
Pain can bring new growth
I watched as you broke in half
Your struggles now long
25
Devour each other
We don’t have time for remorse
Love sprouts behind us
26
What did you learn, child?
The winds are free as the earth.
Why do we wear chains?
27
What did you see child?
The animals are happy
Then why do we cry?
28
What did you hear child?
Music in all parts of life
Why are we silent?
29
Where did you go child?
The ends of the earth and back
Why do we hide scared?
30
You never knew truth
You made your truth for yourself
I tried to hold it

31
Never forget dreams
Wisdom of ages grows strong
Hold onto your love
32
Where did you find death?
In the valleys of glory
It was there dancing
33
Did you find true joy?
It was with you all along
Did you see it there?
34
Do you know I love?
I love you, more than you know
It’s the same for you
35
Why am I so lost?
Do I know what I’m seeking?
I lost my purpose.
36
That which let’s you live
Wants your death another day
Or wants you to live
37
Death has many faces
Which one shall I meet in time
I will not like it
38
Simple truth isn’t best
It’s the complex truth we want
Unknown future’s best
39
Did you see the stars?
They’re shining for you all night
Now they shine brighter
40
Did you prepare them
Are they ready to face this
Will you let them stand

41
I try very hard
It never seems its enough
What words do you have
42
That wasn’t a promise
It was a fear released here
Did you see it there?
43
The mountain is tall
It sees everything I want
It ignored me once
44
The mountain is old
It has felt the world moving
I tried to learn too
45
The mountain is grave
I scaled it for its secrets
It kept most of them
46
I didn’t mean to leave
I had to find my own destiny
I learned it was here
47
What was I learning
How will I face what’s next
I fear I won’t live
48
Yesterday we laughed
Today pain brings out our tears
Tomorrow we laugh
49
You forget we are one
Grown of the same stuff, we are
I am hurting too
50
Let the winds bring change
It will not kill us outright
We will survive
