3 Haiku

3 Haiku

A Poem by Carlos Lorenzo Estrada
"

The beauty of haiku is the wisdom it provides in its short impactful form of poetic artistry.

3 Haiku 

By

Carlos Lorenzo Estrada 

(Ethics and Humanity)


Wisdom 

To hate is easy

While love demands sacrifice 

Choose the harder path


Truth

Truth is like a sword

Sharply uncompromising 

Lethal toward deceit


Mourning 

Remember to grieve 

For love loss demands our tears

Like rain to winter

I love all three of the Haiku's.

They are very profound, and well expressed.

I love these Haikus!! all of them are to be reckoned with. They say so much in so few words, I especially like WISDOM....yes love does require sacrifice and that's a good thing. It's more difficult to develop, but worth all of it. I also liked Mourning... it hard to mourn without tears; they just become alive and flow like a stream, no stopping them. Nice Work!!!
Best, B
P.S. Back from Azores and Portugal!! Great trip!

love how we were able to fit so much sentiment into such small pieces of writing. my favorite part was probably "wisdom", so so beautiful (and true).

Excellent. You fit a lot into all three here Carlos. So much so, I admit to double checking the syllable count, just in case you sneaked a few more in while no one was looking. 😊
I think the whole point of Haiku and senryu is to fit as much as possible into them, with no waste. You have done so admirably. 😊
