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!! πŸ’•πŸ’• πŸ™‚


  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! πŸ™‚
    😷 πŸ™‚ 😷
    PS…was this in honor of your Dad? Your girls? Your dearheart?


    1. Thank you Carolyn. The pandemic separated us all…and its been months since i last saw my girls and its really making me crazy..πŸ˜…πŸ˜…πŸ˜… but still hoping for the best and that boarders will open soon..❀❀❀

  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.
