Haiku on love and death

Ronovan’s haiku prompts this week – “life” and “give” – have brought out a stream of haiku from me on love and death. I hope you enjoy them πŸ™‚

#1
My greatest regret:
I’ve only one life to give,
To service your love

#2
I’d give everything;
Heart’s lock, life’s joys, soul’s sunshine,
For just one more day

#3
Life is for giving:
Share your tender heart wisely
And you shall receive

#4
No more days to give…
I’ll greet death with a smile
For this gift of life

#5
When life’s revels end,
Regrets are for the death-bed,
But give them lightly

#6
My final moments
No more pain shall I suffer.
The night’s bird takes flight

    1. I stopped watching after the Dalek episode at the start of the series… not for any strong reasons, it all just feels a little same-y, and a bit of a waste of Peter Capaldi (who I think is amazing…. even if he is the spitting image of my uncle!)

          1. Maybe that’s what caught me up, and sometimes I try to go too quickly through my “blog duties”–also, it’s Thanksgiving week here, so I’m eager to get in the kitchen. You’re very kind to be so tolerant of an old gal, squinting and trying to keep up–Bless you!!

  1. I really like #3. And as for #1, I know it may seem silly, but I respectfully disagree. We have many lives to give to our loved ones πŸ™‚
    And I like the ones on death. Yes, we shouldn’t have too many regrets!
