Three Haiku Poems – Broodish

Collage by Poet Rummager

Loneliness will sit over our roofs with brooding wings. Bram Stoker, Dracula

Loneliness will sit
in a corner of my room –
brooding and childish.

She’ll rock in my chair –
combing droopy wings all night.
She won’t be quiet.

I’ll toss and I’ll turn –
scaring sleep away and watch
night burn into day.



  1. Ooohhh i still haven’t figured the other layers of your previous poem..
    And yet again here you are with these beautiful haikus..offering complex emotions that i am yet to unfold…

  2. Loneliness is broodish, like a petulant child with her bottom lip stuck out, hard to ignore. Metaphorically beautiful haikus, Rose. And I like your collage–summery golds, yellows, browns, and touches of red, offset the brooding woman and angry black birds.

  3. Somehow I missed this the first time around. The haiku are great. The collage is outrageously good, very special. If I ever finish my book, maybe I can talk you into doing the art? πŸ˜‰
