October Haikus

Since my birthday in August, I set out to write a haiku everyday. Here are my October Haikus.

October Haikus

10/1/11
Tinges of summer
Left in the air, for you to
Humor me again

10/2/11
When our cozy bed
Only has you within it
Does it feel empty?

10/3/11
Are these verses trite
Do they tell you anything?
Do they just bore you?

10/4/11
A filling vessel
Growing in size everyday
It’s your love inside

10/5/11
Close to tears sometimes
Emotions do multiply
No rhyme and no reason

10/6/11
Roads lead us somewhere
The future spans well ahead
Hoping that it waits

10/7/11
Yesterday you died
The sadness surprises me
For I didn’t know you

10/8/11
Two days in a row
Allow death to the forefront
Goodbye Ireland dear

10/9/11
Above the low clouds
I feel like I’m in heaven
For I’m next to you

10/10/11
All the simple things
Acquire infinite meaning
When you are present

10/11/11
Best way to relax
Spending a long night with you
A heaven on earth

10/12/11
When you aren’t looking
I wonder about focus
With me you look ahead

10/13/11
Platitudes abound
Charity begins at home
You make it real

10/14/11
Returning back home
The happiest time of day
You are there waiting

10/15/11
A monochrome world
Infused with perfect color
In red you arrived

10/16/11
Simple household tasks
Now steeped in endless meaning
For the care you bring

10/17/11
Yes, in a month’s time
I will read this very line
Having seen old Spain

10/18/11
It is not game time
Ideas are required
Still love is the prime

10/19/11
We waited all night
People were angry for it
You made it all love

10/20/11
Do you see through me
When I’m blinded with despair
As when I’m in love

10/21/11
Emotions come forth
When faced with utter beauty
Traveling through ages

10/22/11
At the second pass
The power of ages past
Again overwhelms

10/23/11
Up high in the clouds
As natural now with you
As being home talking

10/24/11
When toiling the fields
Was the way of working men
Politics matter?

10/25/11
“Communication
Always leaves me incomplete”
The boys said it once

10/26/11
Your laugh echoes deep
My heart rejoices above all
You just smile again

10/27/11
And I grow nervous
When all upcoming events
Come to the forefront

10/28/11
You again soothe me
With all your words and your touch
You are all magic

10/29/11
You my special star
Appear in my dreams again
In life and in sleep

10/30/11
I have erred, I know
Please do not let go off me
You’re the air I breathe

10/31/11
In just a few hours
I’ll be where my ancestors
Struggled for eons
