Haiku(s) for Autumn

Autumn winds blow
the trees wither, shed their leaves
like my tears for you

***

The birds chirp at night
reminds me of the sound of
your jingling earrings

***

Intoxication
in your love is far more than
pegs of rum poured neat

***

The mosquitoes bite
me in the night as I sit
waiting for your words

***

Your love dawned on me
like the Sun emerging from
Norway’s horizon

***

Leaving me behind
you will crawl to a happy
life with no burden

***

My love has let me
in a valley of twisted
paths — no Sun at bay

***

Don’t forbid me to
kiss you in a way which has
my senses blooming

***

To have kissed you is
to have read the ancient
and holy scriptures

***

You only kiss me
in my dreams and I refuse
to wake up to life

***
