Without You (Two Haikus)




(Bali, 2019)


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

without you is like
an invisible big wave
in complete stillness

  1. Wow….I think this is one of my favourite ones from you! I love how you’re able to put so many emotions into just, well, 5-7-5 syllables! Amazing, mich!! 💕💕 🙂


  2. 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! 🙂
    😷 🙂 😷
    PS…was this in honor of your Dad? Your girls? Your dearheart?

  3. 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.
