Haiku 17221

I leaned in a kiss
Moon, yellow spirals of lace
Runway diverted
~ Eugenio Saenz Jr.



I pause curbside,
Listen to a story of loss,
Being told on the radio,
I shutter my eyelids,
To stop tears,
I think why,
Is it the story,
Or me being emotional,
Over something simple,
I can’t recall,
But remember it was loneliness,
That filled me, but why,
I’m a Lone Wolf,
Longing for a mate,
But not just anyone,
I’ve longed for you,
Black waves of hair,
Skin layered bronze,
Accentuated curves,
Prominent nose,
Calm ocean cheeks,
Cleopatra eyes,
And a mind that dazzles imagination,
With exploration and dreams,

But again I ask why the tears over a story I can’t recall,
Maybe it’s because of the one thing you said I do recall,
“I’m the best you ever had.”

~ Recall, Eugenio Saenz Jr.
