Moments in Haiku

I’ve been feeling in the mood to write haiku this last week. So I retrieved my pen, completed two, and noticed that they shared a common theme: short moments in time. Here are a few snapshot haiku for your reading pleasure.

Finger pressed to lips;
An ephemeral moment
Carried on silence


At wingbeat’s apex
There’s an interstitial space
When all movement stills


The only constants
Are the ticking clock and the
Weight above my eyes

One thought on “Moments in Haiku

  1. I quite like groups of haiku. But I can’t help selecting lines to give you back a fourth – you probably had this one yourself already: stanza2,line1 + stanza3, line2 + stanza1, line 3 = haiku! Cheers 🙂
