Broken Bottle. A Haiku Trilogy

Blur

Your vision blurred
Atonement dressed in black
Alcohol prevails

Used

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

After

Drunken slumbering
Nothing but spirit-soaked 
More dreams of limbo

 

Ah, haiku. My favourite 5/7/5 syllable verse form. Back to writing in threes, which seems to flow naturally for me.

There was a time when I used to drink a lot. I don’t drink anymore. And I’m better for it.

  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. 🙂

  2. I see you don’t monetize your blog. You can earn extra passive income,
    your niche is good for one method, just search in google: website monetization methods by
