Five Haiku Poetry: Wanting

Photograph by Dimitri_C from


For the want of food,
she stole a bright red apple.
Twelve lashes cut skin.

🍏 🍎

Thief. She was cast out
and did walk a lonely life,
for the want of food.

🍏 🍎

Famished appetite
not restricted in her gut.
The heart, too, craved things.

🍏 🍎

Alone in her head –
conversations with herself.
Wanting drove her mad.

🍏 🍎

She fell on a blade.
Smiled as she bled, for there are
no wants when you’re dead.

🍏 🍎

Speaking of wanting, I’ve wanted a beanie hat of frost for awhile.

Guess what?

I now have one, and it’s made in Canada (yay!! no sweatshops!).
