Monday Haiku: the bird of Love


to her….
will be random posting
of Haiku devoted to
Scout, my partner


Love needs air to breath,

and Love needs Trust to survive.

birds need wings to fly….


i learned to let go

and love her with open arms.
the nest… calls us Home.

    That’s lovely. It reminds me of the quote that says if you truly love someone, you will let them go and, if they don’t return, they weren’t meant for you (something along those lines). True love will always return. I agree that without trust, there can be very little love.

    • hi Lee, ty. and yes, it’s both Trust and Letting Go, seemingly
      a contradiction on paper but so necessary day to day. it took
      us both a long time to work this into our relationship.

      ty so much you for your engaging and thoughtful comment.

  2. and the nest invites
    our love to soar forever
    no clipped wings..just trust

    {hugs} and it was beautiful – lucky lucky Scout

  3. Beautiful and true. If you clip someone’s wings, they are no longer free to be themselves…and you only know and have part of the person you love.

  4. Freedom is a thick tether!

  5. So beautiful.
    I feel honored to have been a tiny spark.
    Please allow me to share this weekend, with a link back? This week’s theme is (the freedom of) air — it will fit beautifully.

    Do you know the song “Anna Begins” by Counting Crows? It came to mind after reading your piece.
    It seems like I should say “as long as this is love…”
    But it’s not all that easy so maybe I should just
    snap her up in a butterfly net-
    Pin her down on a photograph album
    I am not worried
    I’ve done this sort of thing before

    Wow, that goes really deep — I really ‘get’ it.

    Beautiful as always,
    “and love needs trust to survive” isn´t that a truth.
