Solitude Standing

Waves circle the seas,

White clouds march across the sky,

Lone tree on the beach.

A.J. Poliquit

  1. Interesting Haiku Kuya AJ! But before I continue, my eldest son, JB is on a Haiku project in school. So I must say that your post is very timely. To continue, the waves, the clouds and the tree may signify solitude but each has a significant role in life; and so is the lone man.

    1. We’re on the same page, Lil Sis! How about posting JB’s haiku in your blog? To share and save it.

      My haiku is not only about solitude. It’s also about being static, unmoving, stuck. And about the temporality of life. I’m in that place now where I grapple with all these issues.
