Haiku--By Chen-ou Liu--Canada

winter twilight
the one-legged veteran faces
a revolving door

winter mist ...
bookmarking a moment
with this haiku

no trace left ...
I weave her laughter
into my dream

my shadow and me
in the silence
a wall clock ticking

  2. Chen-ou Liu, your Haiku are so poignant and so emphatic in their expression! They are abstracts of real life and the many mirrors we face daily! Excellent! Sheri

  3. I am a big haiku fan, and these are some of the best I have seen

  4. Stellar thread here. I can almost hear a wall clock ticking down the hallway...
