1961, And Later (Haiku)


Cherryblossomfresh
this word describes your bosom.
My eyes were grateful.

Acorns suspended
forty years of gravity,
I'm presbyopic.

    Hey there, Ravinder
    you've been inside the sewers
    too long. You smell now.

    It was not I who,
    through haikus made you sick, sir
    it is your liver.

    You need curcumin
    blown into the rear passage
    you may look better. (Report) Reply

    I read today some Haiku
    By Herbert Nehrlich
    It hardly gave me pleasure
    But rather left me sick

    Haiku is like raw meat
    Served and called cuisine
    Not for people with some sense
    Relished by the insane (Report) Reply

    This made me laugh Herbert. I can't decide if this is ''sweet'' or ''corny''.......maybe just enough of both to be a wonderful poem! Sincerely, Mary (Report) Reply

    my first instinct was...he still loves her! then i began to wonder...is it a physical condition of the speaker or a description of the loss of desire? could go either way like a greek theatre mask! (Report) Reply

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
