Things that are serene.
Things that paint a playful scene.
Things not what they seem.

Look sharp and pay mind.
Is the beast within without?
Start prowling in kind.

Haiku / Senryu, Poetry by Sarah

Honey, Sage and Apple

With grapes from the vine
Add honey, sage and apple
You’ll have one fine wine

Author’s note: This Haiku was inspired by a wine recipe for white wine with honey and sage, that appears in one of the oldest medieval cookbooks, Tractatus de modo preparandi. You can find and try the recipe here, courtesy of Quarto Cooks

Haiku / Senryu, Poetry by Sarah

Gone

Holding broken dreams,
I weep for you as tears fall
through my bloodstained hands.

It’s hard to let go
of someone you never met,
but love so fiercely.

Too fragile for life –
a tiny heartbeat in time.
And then you were gone…

Author’s Note: A triple haiku, as this week marks the six year anniversary of my last miscarriage and the end of all hope I ever had of being a mother. A fitting choice of words for me, from Ronovan this week? 😔 Must be a “thing” as last year, this very same week, I wrote Bloodline using Ronovan’s words, “miracle” and “save”. Oh what bitter irony…

Worshipping Hearts

 

In worshipping hearts,
goddess of love manifests
in strangest of ways.

They thought him crazy.
He thought he’d an equal chance

of soaring great heights.

Fooled

Sweet disposition.
So trusting. This tart was fooled,
as he sucked her dry.
