Will You Think of Me?


Will you think of me
when the boat is in motion,
bound for Abidjan?
~~ ~~ ~~
Will you think of me
only during peaceful times
or in war as well?
~~ ~~ ~~
Will you think of me
as your vision fades away
and your teacup cracks?

  1. What bitter sweet writing this is where love may be compromised by events where each choose a different course of action.

  2. Hope…is something very beautiful…lovely write..as usual MMT..I try to put all three prompts in one Haiku..tell me if I succeeded..


  3. There’s a sadness to these, But nicely done.

  4. The last one was sad .. says a lot in such small verse ..

  5. We want to know that someone is thinking of us, that we matter beyond our limited existence. Beautiful words.

  6. Always… these are very heart wrenching!

  7. Oh, man. I LOVE that third one. SO much.

  8. Yes..the cracked teacup is a very strong parting image..jae

  9. We want people to care about us no matter what this says that in a beautiful way.Well done

  10. You always seem to say so much in just a few words. Nicely done.

  11. Powerful question ~ am sure we all ask at one time or other ~ very pensive haiku ~ lovely work ~ (A Creative Harbor) ^_^

  12. The cracked teapot beautifully captures the brokenness of a relationship changed by time and circumstance. I love it.

  13. Can love be expected to sustain when away, in good and bad times or when advanced in years later? Very thoughtful MMT! Nicely!


  14. All are wonderful…loved the last one!

  15. I would think of you always. Beautiful poems
