Haikus by Reina


Five-seven-five lines
Preserve a moment within
A frame of phrases.

◊◊◊◊

May nothing on earth
Dull your vibrance, still your verve
As you dance through it.
Wishes for Your Feet

◊◊◊◊

It’s enchanting how
The lilt in your voice hints at
Kinship yet to come.
Fast Friend

◊◊◊◊

These November stars
Forged in passion, birthed in storms,
Outshine all the world.
Scorpio Children

◊◊◊◊

This hazy morning
Half asleep, I woke to find
You wearing the storm.
Gray Jackets

◊◊◊◊

I’ll tumble and climb
Through the ups and downs of life
With my hand in yours.
Mt. Batulao

◊◊◊◊

On your back you bear
The weight of all whom you love;
I try to stay light.
Strong. Older. Sister.

◊◊◊◊

I’ll heed your music,
So seek mine out in the noise.
Demand I answer.
Someone to Sing With

◊◊◊◊

Teach me about how
Sentiment is similar
Though cultures differ.
Friends Across the Sea

◊◊◊◊

Like windshield wipers,
Two wagging tails wave hello
And welcome me home.
Dogs on a Rainy Night

◊◊◊◊

My waves of pleasure
Manifest on your body
As rivers of sweat.
Love with a Water Sign

◊◊◊◊

Twine around me ‘til
The very tips of our toes
Tangle together.
Twin Dormitory Beds

◊◊◊◊

This swinging love goes:
Are we friends? Yes? No? Never?
Always. Forever.
Constant Doesn’t Mean Consistent

◊◊◊◊

It matters to me,
The effort to make me feel
That I had mattered.
Secret Santa

◊◊◊◊

How could I have thought
Your dispassion and my depth
Belonged together?
Why Won’t You Woke Up?

◊◊◊◊

How dare you judge me
For how long I take to fix
What you have broken?
He Jests at Scars…

◊◊◊◊

How unfair it is
For you to judge my anguish
When you are its cause.
…When He Has Caused the Wounds

◊◊◊◊

All this alcohol
Only serves to make me miss
Your drunken laughter.
I Need a Shot of You

◊◊◊◊

I watch you wake up
Wrapped in my flowery sheets;
I forget to breathe.
Rose-Colored Mornings

◊◊◊◊

Your eyelids flutter
As I kiss your long lashes
Good night, sweet good night.
Boy of my Dreams
