between day and mystery…..Haiku / Tanka

.
.
a most beautiful song to read by
.

.
.
.
.
.
between day and mystery
.
.
.
.

could it really be…
.
.
.
these arms spent so many years
.
.
.
not holding you near,
.
.
.
.
.
without breathing in
.
.
.
the scent of love in your voice
.
.
.
when you’re close to me?
.
.
.
.
.
how long did i wish…
.
.
.
that every cloud would spell
.
.
.
your name in the sky,
.
.
.
.
.
a heavenly trail
.
.
.
i would follow faithfully.
.
.
.
in each dream i dreamt…
.
.
.
tumbling through galaxies…
.
.
.
search imploding stars for
.
.
.
.
.
any trace of you.
.
.
.
how these fingers grieved,
.
.
.
without the soft curves of your
.
.
.
body next to me.
.
.
.
tossing and turning as each
.
.
.
day morphed into loveless night.
.
.
.
.
.
awake….without you…
.
.
.
.
living in the void between
.
.
.
.
day…. and mystery.

  1. I am speechless – the music I listened to and the words spilt softly from my lips as I read…lucky lucky Scout. Exquisite my friend {hugs} and thank you.

    • hi Jen, it’s an incredible song, isn’t it? she did a cover of Roberta Flack’s
      ‘the first time ever i saw your face’, and she took that tired song to a whole
      new level of appreciation for me. i’m waiting for the right poem to come along
      to use it. ty Jen, ty so much but i’m the lucky one. Scout is one in a million.

      sending Love and Hugs from Louisville this morning!

    I’m at a loss of words right now. This is one of my favorites from you. Breathtakingly beautiful work.

    • you know, i’ve been at a loss of words since i wrote this, i’m not sure why
      but this poem took a lot out of me. and that you would consider it one of
      your favorites, certainly makes my weariness worthwhile, ty, ty so much Noora.

  14. “the scent of love in your voice” truly wonderful

    Your words move me as always

    • i’m glad they do Melanie, it means a great deal to me that they do.
      and ty, i felt this was a transitional poem for me…still trying
      to figure it out though. it left me spent for days afterward…
