exposing a bleeding heart

becoming undone


Life has a rhythm

lies within the rules of hope

no-one understands


Uncover the darkness

 so angelic and sanguine

blazing fire within

  19. well done, the haiku is so difficult

  20. Lovely verse– and the image is riveting. Do you create your images? The graphics are so beautiful and dramatic!

    • Thanks my friend, I play a lot with images in Photoshop but also have a girlfriend that is a graphic designer, that makes it easier I guess but it’s always more intense combining the image and video than actually writing the poem!! And it has to be dramatic….won’t be happy otherwise!! Crazy me 🙂 🙂 xxx Hugs xxx

  21. An exceptional poem and image…together they create a power message.

  22. Each Haiku has a power that makes me think more deeply into them. Well do9ne. – bill
