Poetry--By r soos--United States


a fingerprint there
at the top of this notebook
shows me you're reading


some discovery
into your story timeline
when you write for truth


life happens outside
until you miss the dances
with your mom and dad

  1. Dear r soos,
    I truly enjoyed these haiku creations in traditional form. I appreciate their gentle flow of diction as well as their message.
    Blessings on both you and your poetry.
