Three Lights

Haiku Heights

Three broken windows—
the lights creep in like kittens
to explore the room.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
Fading love letters—
we read them in the dim light
of a waning moon.
~~~ ~~~ ~~~
After siesta
I stumble into daylight,
clutching my guitar.

  1. Reading love letters in dim moonlight … romanticism at its best 🙂

  2. I thought the first was going to be my favorite, until I got to the third one. I too stumble after a siesta, alas without a guitar!!

  3. Awesome … the second one is my favorite … the im light of the waning moon.

  4. Each of these stands alone – classic haiku. I enjoyed them all.

  5. Enjoyed your set of haiku very much. The second is my favourite “fading love letters” I have a few of those 🙂

  6. the second one is my favorite, too. well done! 🙂

  7. loved all of them! beautiful weaving of words! 🙂

  8. I love the three of them: kittens, love letters, a guitar, in different lights…, very nice.

  9. After siesta
    I stumble into daylight,

    Siesta is often a good thing! We’re fresh to do whatever we please upon waking up. Nicely MMT!


  10. I like the idea of light creeping in to explore the room very much.

  11. A fine set. The second one is a splendid romantic Haiku.

  12. Great set of Haiku but then I would expect nothing less.


  13. I imagine a big, semi-abandoned plantation house from the first haiku. Love all three.

  14. every haiku is different yet stunning.

    love the ending lien of the last one.

  15. These are all lovely and each evokes a different image. I like all of them, but this line – “the lights creep in like kittens – this line won my heart.

  16. incredible haiku and talent.
    missed you a lot.

    hope to see you this week.
    keep inspiring.

  17. Magical Mystical Teacher! I popped in to hear some tales from the class room. Well, I found the beautiful Haiku and I love the guitar very much! Keep up the good work. I’m off with some powers, I’m a teacher without a classroom! 🙂

  18. Really like the last one

  19. these stand really well as individual haiku, but, imho, arranging these to read in the order 2, 1, 3 and considering presenting the haiku as a set would strengthen them … though perhaps I am misguided and they stand as a set already by some other logic than mine: night passing into day then afternoon.

    hope my whistling isn’t out of tune …

  20. Yes, light is everywhere, it seems … Lovely haiku!

  21. loved all three. The ‘kitten’ imagery in the first, fading love letters and waning light in second and siesta and guitar in third. Infact while ‘moonlight’ features very often in poetry, I haven’t come across too many things written on daylight/ siestas. very unique take.
