Haiku in the Shade of Blue

the piano played
every blue note it had
still I asked for more


blue eyes stare at me
there is no recognition
i had been erased


way beyond the blue
that paints the summer morning
pisces swims in stars

Sometimes I hunger for those blue notes too! How thrilling to meet a kindred soul (maybe you, maybe just "the speaker") in the first poem.

Shadowy Blue Haiku

Mama Zen said...

Gorgeous set!

Ella said...

Wow, I love this
and the ending just
makes me mind swim!
My daughter is a Pisces~

I tagged you! YOU can play or not!
I'm fine either way~

Geraldine said...

The first two hit home, more than I can say...

Beautiful words Susie.

Great set of haiku, though the first two are my favorites. As I read the second one, the one word that came to mind was, "Ouch!"

Ed Pilolla said...

after painting this so pretty, pisces swims in stars is so nice.

Nicholas V. said...

Lovely! But I am prejudiced, for blue is my favourite colour... :-)
