Broken Bottle. A Haiku Trilogy


Your vision blurred
Atonement dressed in black
Alcohol prevails


The empty bottle
Your eye peers at the bottom
All the lonely dregs


Drunken slumbering
Nothing but spirit-soaked 
More dreams of limbo

  1. Hi,
    I like your haiku although I thought it was sad. I teach how to write a haiku when I teach students about Japan. I am a teacher.
    I met you at Jason’s blog party so I came to meet you.
    Maybe you can check out my blog if you need any blogging tips. That’s what I write about.


    1. Hi Janice,

      Sorry, but we’ve never met.

      My blog is my catharsis. It’s what I use to get through my days (aside from therapy lol). Generally my poems are sad, but that’s more a reflection of my general state of mind.

      Thanks for your comments. 🙂
