Very Short Haiku Poetry - Poetry with a message worth a thousand words

Haiku Poetry

Haiku Poetry is a very short poem with poetic images that can transcend the limitation imposed by the usual language and thinking. What if we took that imagery into the realm of human nature? While attempting to do this I tried to stay within the bounds of contemplative poetry that indicates a moment, sensation, impression or drama of a specific moment in nature. However, I broadened this framework to at times include moral, historical, scientific, legal, social, etc., issues as well. I believe, by doing this, we are introduced to a unique and creative imagery that paints a mental picture where you the reader can find much deeper meanings to personally relate.

Do we ever know what tests tomorrow might bring? One day your happy, and the next devastated. That something special, something true, that you thought you had, lost forever. Why? Because that part of you has been stolen, never to be returned. That trust has been violated. Left in its place is bewilderment, emptiness, void! Trying to capture the setting from the perspective of the victim, with but a few chosen words, was a challenge for me. Nevertheless, I think the point vividly comes across here.

how violated?
"thou shalt not...", fell on deaf ears
abandonment, tears
