- Haiku X 64 - Into Empty Space -

The graceful ballet
My work almost completed
The gloomy gray sky

Explore your shadows
Allow yourself to feel joy
Fear of loneliness

Soccer's Works

Soccer is the best sport
It's tough on the mind and body 
It is rewarding.

Offseason is hard
But it separates the weak
And builds up the strong.

Keepin' a CLOSE eye on 'em

Searchin' for sneaky monkey
Hidin' in a tree

"He TOOK my cage keys!"

I Quite Like Haikus

I quite like Haikus.
They are short and fun to write.
sometimes...they work out.

There is just something,
not the personality,
but something that works.

Sometimes they become
More than simply ordered lines.
They are poetry.
