Sonnet Lxxxi

And now you're mine. Rest with your dream in my dream.
Love and pain and work should all sleep, now.
The night turns on its invisible wheels,
and you are pure beside me as a sleeping amber.

No one else, Love, will sleep in my dreams. You will go,
we will go together, over the waters of time.
No one else will travel through the shadows with me,
only you, evergreen, ever sun, ever moon.

Your hands have already opened their delicate fists
and let their soft drifting signs drop away; your eyes closed like two gray
wings, and I move

after, following the folding water you carry, that carries
me away. The night, the world, the wind spin out their destiny.
Without you, I am your dream, only that, and that is all.

This haiku is so poetically beautiful, seems to be absorbed straight into the mind filled with vivid imagery and definition. Absolutely love this one! Thank you for sharing it. RoseAnn
A doubled Haiku, niiiice.
this is very lovely bell.
Yeah, you certainly have the knack for the ku. I occasionally try my hand at this form, but usually come up short. Patricia must indeed be worthy of the multi-gemmed tiara.
Absolutely beautiful Haiku's Tailor, lucky lady Patricia. I like these very much----Melvina
