without you is like
a stolen moonlight at night
in total darkness

without you is like
an invisible big wave
in complete stillness

  1. Life can seem shrouded without certain people leaving us in a darkness seeking their light.

    Without you, Mich…something is definitely amiss. Beautiful emotions crafted with the ease of a pen dipped in the moonless ocean.

  11. Aw. 😦
    Perfect poem and photo duet, SweetMich. And I can feel the emotion in your words describing that dark-and-still-feeling of missing the one(s) we love. Sometimes we are apart so long from them we feel like they really have been stolen, they really are invisible…but then if we are able to be with them again, the celebration is magnificent! πŸ™‚

    The combination of the photo and the haikus are stunning…there’s an incompleteness in the poems that make you envision the scene continuing even as the poem ends.
