    A Short Poem...

    I've never been good
    At writing such short poems
    Maybe I'll practice

    That is awesome. I think there is such a beauty in the simplicity of brief poems, a holding back while letting go, if you will. keep posting your "practice" ^_^

    loneliness
    is not
    necessarily
    limited to
    when
    you are
    alone
    "

    TOLERANCE

    A dog will pursue a rabbit./ It is its natural habit./ It runs to its full exhaustion./ There is its real satisfaction./ But, put the dog on a treadmill./ Off and on, serve it meal./ Now it is without its natural activity./ Angered, it does not want charity.

    Your little poem made me laugh, not because I did not like it, on the contrary, it is excellent! Poetry does not have to be only romantic or serious, deep... it can, also, be humorous. Your three lines in a brief and clear way speak more about you than you could express in several couplets. Namely, they say that you are a witty, a clever person, with sense of humor, who likes poetry.

    lol

    reminds me of my first haiku in form
    tailor

    who am I but a stitch in time
    what if I were to bare my soul
    would you see me origami

    Morph and jersea,
    Thank you for the kind mention,
    I only know so few words, to use
    them frivolously seems such a sin.

    As for you Morpheus:

    practice to practice
    practice can not make perfect
    as in me, you see

    Thanks to paper, Dipen and free.

    @hack: Ha! It would be funny if we could sustain a conversation in Haiku form!

    Thanks for your response
    All that's left to do is try
    Or do, or do not*
