Dry tears on my cheeks

spring blossoms new beginnings

on paper I will bleed



Gentle spring rain

In silence and memories

Love requires more

    Sipping iced tea and reading Haiku poetry by Amanda. Your words are three dimensional and images created inspire one’s longing for love and devotion. You are an artist in Haiku too.

  6. “on paper I will bleed” From a poet and writer this is not only apt, it is stunningly true. The dry tears, metaphor for pre-writing thought, was wonderful. Our craft is our passion and our passion is our art and craft. Beautiful images and words – I love this!

  7. Very simple but meaningful!
    Thanks for sharing, Amanda

  15. It seems too often that Love requires too much of one party or the other, but to me it’s worth everything. Nicely done.

  16. Light and beautiful! A pleasure to be reading you-

  17. I love haiku’s but the form is diffiult, and there are several different views over what is acceptable in English. Thanks for the reminder, time to try again with them.

    If you want to read the whole story, it started on Letterdash

  18. Wow, the first one especially really struck a chord in my heart. Lovely.

    Love does require more….I wish others understood.

    I love haikus, but I am just not disciplined enough to write a meaningful one.

    and bleeding on paper can be very healing too, I’ve found…
