“we are all a word” – a little gem of a haiku by yi-ching lin

we are all a word

or two away from spilling –

the tension’s sublime


I wish I’d written that haiku! I recently started to follow yi-ching lin’s blog, I really like her poems, but this one simply took my breath away.

So far two of my blog posts have been poems: yin and yang and THE SPRING GRIN! and when the mood strikes me, I’ll be writing more.

I also write haikus and I’m gradually putting together a haiku picture gallery on my blog, called “haikus to go“.

I’m sure that many, if not most, of the world’s problems could be solved if people read and listened to poetry more.

let’s stuff poems in our pockets!

plug our minds into their sockets!

keep our hearts inside their lockets!
