Haiku 6 Pack

This beauty of youth

like the first breath of sunrise

is burnt by high noon.

****

Science gave us bombs

it also gave us aspirin

this toxic tonic.

****

These last swirls of light

afraid to give in to night

cling to the west wind.

****

This drunken midnight

where the shadow takes control

leading me back home.

****

This flicker of flame

shivers in the night’s back draft

as she shuts the door.

****

This time narcotic

speeds right through the veins of youth

while it stones the old.

****

    i was ready to reply after reading the title,
    but i managed to hold my fingers.
    haiku 6 pack ..i love that like a zen big mac
    where meditation and drunk foolishness mix so well
    and that first one keeps it real
    like houdini accepting the chains.
    i also like those shadows that took you back home.
    they sound like guiding spirits.

      Louise! Haiku beer, sounds light and refreshing. There’s a beer in Brazil: Brahma. Brahma is the Hindu god of creation. Weird name for a beer, don’t you think? It should be called: Shiva beer: beer of destruction.
