A Poem by *~*Butterfly Kisses*~*



Visions cloud the mind

Timid moment in madness

Stabbing at the wound.




 Around the corner

Unexpected draws so close

Fear takes all control.




Thunderous heartbeat

Danger revels within mind

Lightning strikes the heart




Leaving you breathless

Captured breath, frozen in time

So hard to escape.

Funny that I've been doing haikus/senryus, now I'm writing them for class.

I've been away some time - trying to do a little catch-up now.

These are all good - sharp, personal, clear, true to the terseness of senryu, but by no means small in scope.

Great haiku...I wrote some of these back in 5th grade....

I didn't get to read this piece until today, yet it captures a recent event that has happened to someone who is so very much a part of my soul. I love the fact that your entering a new form of expression in the Senryu style.

An impulse bearing news for our understanding....sometimes its worth the trouble to take a closer look. Nice write!

Great description of fear. Fear can make us safe and away from real life and opportunity.
"Around the corner
Unexpected draws so close
Fear takes all control."
