Weightless--By Brian Strand--England


Love, new love
               floats on air,
         thermals of desire
passion's flight;
       off the wall,
       out of this world,
together without
a care;
missing minutes
become hours,
      one dream becomes

  1. Hello, Brian - I love this very creative form of haiku and the carefree flow of thought with a sort of fun flow! I have not heard of this style so it is very refreshing and very cool to me! The flow seems to continue on as read in one breathe - but it is so magical! Sheri
