(Some times a poem means what it says, sometimes it doesn't and sometimes the
beauty is just the words themselves.)

The crimsoncast clouds
Promising nothing but hope
Close day the same way.

I envy the wind
Caressing your gentle curves
Arousing my all.

I still see Grandpa
Working late in the vineyard
Silhouetted there.

Your haiku do convey the images (and feelings) that you intended. Thank you for sharing them, Ken. Love and peace,

I, too, am captivated by haiku. It is a challenge, trying to convey an image in seventeen short syllables. But it is worth it!

Wonderfully done, Ken, and welcome to AD--you're among friends.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

Dear Ken
These are wonderful! I especially love the last!
I've been writing haikus of late, and discovered thru a fellow denner that most of them are actually Senryu... Haiku traditionally focus on seasons, and senryu (Japanese 17 syllables also) are freer, often ironical or sartorial in nature. Even still, upon reading some old haiku books I find that haiku has extended its boundaries for centuries. Let me know what you discover if poss. Thank you so much Ken... which appropriately means knowledge!
Love & friendship Suzie :-D
