Love’s Rhabdomancer

Perhaps you’d have been

Rhabdomancer of my heart—

Laid ‘gainst ribs, birch branch

Shaking…or do I tremble

That you see, speak my secrets?

Haunting Perfume, “Lost”

https://amaviedecoeurentier.wordpress.com/2017/08/06/tjs-household-haiku-10/  TJ’s prompt words: Perfume and Lost

Swarovski flacon

What’s lost can linger

Haunting perfume wafts through ache

Mem’ries unbidden

Bottled in cut glass flacon…

Shattered heart pours no fragrance

Perhaps Charlie’s heart

Was crafted from titanium—

That love could break his bones

And yet he laughs.

Toward mine, Love’s been no

Gentleman with tender touch and kiss;

He opened door, and let it slam…

Once, twice, he never missed.

Broken on battlefield, Romance,

A foreign land where I knew not dance—

Harsh boots tread soul till my pulse bled,

Left me permanently amour-disabled.

Thus, long and many roads ago

I gathered up heart onto medic’s cot,

Carted it far beyond, away…

Where solo, it now reclines behind

Privet green in unseen fragrant bower.

Petals fall on paths, all varieties of flower,

A year-round keepsake garden fit

For poet’s lingering stay…

Seasons pass, and memories;

I turn pages filled with sunset ink,

Braid ribbon through solitude’s bouquet.

Wall of Faith

https://haikuhorizons.wordpress.com/2017/07/02/haiku-horizons-prompt-wall/

Need to build firm wall

Bulwark between Past, Present

Lord, send Carpenter

~

Lord, send Carpenter

Soul’s reconstruction project

Ground broken, ready

~

Ground broken, ready

Foundation poured, pillars placed

Jesus, cornerstone

~

Jesus, cornerstone

Fortify my walls with faith

Guard, keep safe this heart
