Autumn Haiku in Summer

Regrets by Jane Reichhold

low-tide walk
now deep at sea
my path

at the waterfalls
a woman remembering
a love affair

at least the moon
when it’s full
comes to my porch

ribbon knots
tighten a lump in the throat
as it was that night…

heavy heart
such a color evenings
weighs nothing

Summer Melancholy

Image

Spring is gone in the nick of time,

Letting the summer to set in early

The sun is in cahoots with the clouds,

A bright hot day and the roads empty

Not a bird in the sky,

Not a new leaf on the tree

A slight melancholy in the air,

Recalling the winter that flee

And my dog yawns and pants heavily,

Sure an onset of grave heat

In this mid hour of the scorching day,

A stage of utter somnolence I have reached

I yearn for a perfect siesta,

Wistful this seems

Leaving me with a desperate wait,

And the sanguine winter dreams.

Lover’s Delight

images

Remember when it rained and you held me close,

My heart skipped a beat as the feelings arose

We kissed under the beaming full moon,

Only to part ways till another monsoon

Never thought you as a stranger,

Time and again you asked for favors

Though I stayed alarmed,

Gravitated as I was unharmed

You wooed me with your subtle charm,

And we waltzed as I was still in your arms

I often wear your fleece when I’m alone,

Which still breathes in your cologne

With that toast of Chateau wine,

You promised you’ll always be mine

But you left me in a wrangle,

And I tried hard to dissemble..

I still remember the letter I wrote,

It was never posted as you often misquote

Today the sky is again crimson,

And the stars show up in billion

I still wait for that rain of desire,

When you and I will kiss on the pier.
