Transient Lovers

Transient Lovers

sunrise’s blinding light
beaming like transient lovers
dancing through the night.

night and day marry
as distant lovebirds’ weary
to be or not to be.

be like a mother
loves near or far no other
as we all wish it.

for:

II. Aishwarya’s prompt guidelines

Haiku?

• 17 syllables (5-7-5 per line) or less (preferably between 8-12);

• Include a seasonal reference;

• Typically written on the subject of nature;

• In the present tense;

• Compare or contrast two different images as juxtapositions;
