Demas is a professional author and freelancer. He published and edited two newspapers. Writing, for him, is just a way of sharing.
The Strawberry Patch, Cribbage, Fires, Love, and more.
Hidden below leaves,
but yearning to be noticed,
you yield up delight.
Locked down here alone,
others there are hereabouts
ready to play me.
Fire blazing night,
hot and dry grown hotter still,
men to the rescue.
The rejected heart
seeks elsewhere for its true love,
Once alone with you,
silent sounds I said to you,
breeze-dissolved too soon.
The ocean's spray now,
like humanity's ocean,
look around to see what's next
in today's actions.
Summer dew drops
for a thirsting earth
Soft warmth of summer
envelops as a caress
recharging the heart.
The tree was there then,
it caught my fall from our kiss,
caught us both, in fact.
in the long string of "life days".
Great day of promise.

Haikus are so creative and beautifully expressed. I am impressed at your Haiku with a great mind you share your best.

What would writers be without readers? Thanks for stopping by again.
Nell Rose from England on October 14, 2020:
So beautiful, all of them. In a few words you said it all. I love it!
Denise McGill from Fresno CA on September 23, 2020:
You have a way with words. I always find these haiku way too hard to create. I'm too wordy, I guess.
Catherine Tally from Los Angeles on September 20, 2020:
Very nice, Demas! I really enjoyed reading these.
