Haiku – "Pine" & "Grief"

Born a mighty oak,
But am low weathered by grief.
I’m now soft as pine

I would dare it all
For one kiss beneath the pines;
Bear a thousand griefs

No worse grief than this:
Pining for the lost child,
Taken far too soon

  1. Jumping all about inside my emotions. Sad and teary eyes, especially the last one. Though trees have feelings and want to be a strong as an oak, they can’t always be what they want to be, either. Beautiful writing. (Read your comment on J’s post about your prefer the # 4. I am an odd # person. 7 being my lucky one. But I do 5 & 3 also). Keep on writing in multiple numbers whether odd or even, you always find a way of working out the most amazing way to express your words in writing great Haiku. jk πŸ™‚
