Friday’s English Haiku – #41


Smoke twirls lazily
Chimneys over-flowing
Winter has arrived




Fiery Eyes – NaPoWrimo 2015 – Day 24 (out of prompt)

I came to see, I know not why,
Just following a sparkle in your eye.
Times gone past, times to come,
A feeling life has just begun.

Elementary infinitesimal foundations
Enticed into being,
Seduced to formations
Of exquisite perception,
Sourced in the very fires
Of your eyes.

Now, I know why I came to see…

And why I stay.
