Daily Post Challenge: Haikus

26 Nov

As part of the Writing Challenge in The Daily Post, which I follow, I decided to participate in the weekly challenge by writing these haikus, as these days I’ve felt a bit poetic ever since I worked on a translation of a poem I sent to Alberto Patishtán, heh. Anyways, I wrote five according to the challenge. Hope you enjoy them!

SYMBOL

A dark alleyway.

Two walls with some good distance.

A thread in the dark.

 

SACRIFICE

A gift to you, God.

Threads to replace the other ones.

They need to grow more.

 

HUNGER

My handbag with gold.

My stomach filled with salmon.

My soul, empty of love.

 

WRITER

I see an ink weaver.

I see paper knot doodles.

I see a spiderweb.

 

TABLE

Here’s a wooden horse.

I place my hands on this corpse.

Its heart’s on the woods.

 

…And yes, I am obsessed with threads.
