AFTER CHINESE POETS

Wandering
Aimlessly
Alone

Melancholy
of the penniless
lover-
endless and
unexpressed-
burning
in isolation
will consume him
someday.

And
how sad
to think
that the ashes
of that fire
will disappear
like ordinary dust.

  1. I really like your poems, Rashid! Keep going. šŸ™‚
    Also, have you tried this app HaikuJam, where you write Haikus with friends?
    If you haven’t, join it, and if you have, let me know. I shall add you to a Circle there and then we could jam. šŸ˜€
