Crystal Cobweb

sweet tears of parting
strung on gossamer threads
around dawn’s soft neck

***

sweet tears of parting
from the dark eyes of the night
still bearing your scent

unspoken words
strung on gossamer threads
straining the moonlight

broken promises
weave a web of untruths
around dawn’s soft neck

  1. Wonderful – what starts as a powerful, beautiful haiku, opens up to reveal a ‘sting in its tail’ – what a unique, original idea, refreshing, and works so well. It has changed the whole idea of Kristjaan’s troiku, into soething exciting and new, carrying hidden messages. You are a writer of rare talent and insight.

  2. Ah … the tears of betrayal … gossamer drops on a spider’s web – for me the symbol of invisible danger, the poor fly only realizes its peril when it’s too late … intriguing a well written troiku with many layers of meaning and love how you placed it in that lovely photo! Brava Thotpurge.
