hurtful words
from a close friend’s mouth
sting like bee

** the above haiku follows the 3-5-3 rule, instead of the more common 5-7-5 one.

pardon me, my friend
leave your shoes outside, they make
a poisonous path


all men are the same
they have one thing in common
they play game of hearts


All three haiku poems were originally published in January 2016 on another blog.
