    By the way, you should really consider the Snapshot Press Collection Competition which allows for 1 line/1 line haiku as well as three line haiku.

    Just google

    ancient, sacred geometry
    shows it's face
    through this blessed rose

    roses peddle love
    petals disperse beauty, grace
    geometric hips

    venus love nectar
    rose belly full of body
    beautiful in bloom

    lamenting her death
    tear drops like rain drops, nurture
    finally i see

  11. E.T. Says:

    as tears drop like rain
    the foliage begins to drink
    why don't i grow too?

  12. astraealynn Says:

    you're always growing
    though the process may be slow

  13. E.T. Says:

    as we all evolve
    living, laughing, and loving
    growing in ALL WAYS
    shapeshifting and evolving
    'till we meet the end

  14. astraealynn Says:

    we meet the end, omega
    energy dispersed, collectively
    wholly rebirth'd, alpha
    we circle the earth
