A Poem by Artūrs Lūsis

short, directed towards emotional expression; using symbolic confessionalism, semi-rhyme, minimalism. This is no haiku. Steem's off - haikus & tankas & shi & no & alltherest fir Japanese, that's best.




The sun has set

behind the windows of a black car -

all day I hadn’t  met


a soul beyond this body,

seat-belted and far.

I don’t feel sorry


for the dying blossom

lying in a drying scar.

A wieldy manifestation of words to provoke a literary image.

I am awe struck.

I don't really understand this piece. It seems to be too short for all that you say it is about. It may be the fact that I'm not good with haiku format but I think one or two more stanzas would be a good addition to it.

Well, it is a piece of pure reflection of my emotioned mind, the state it has had when I was writing it. Therefore, I think, any interpretation can be suitable, but, of course, I have my own; but I never share my own explanations of why-n-how, for that breaks the magic, both for the other reader and myself. Everything is intentional, though, this was a stream of consciousness originally, but has been edited since.

I'm not sure if I fully understand this, but I do love the language and rhyme scheme. Great imagery as well, especially for such a short piece. Nice write altogether. :)
