When i was little/I used to point a chubby finger toward the dark sky/And ask my father/why some stars moved and others didn’t/He would laugh and explain that some were airplanes/I still wish on them today ~ Laugh-It-Out
The feathers of a crow are black/The ink of my pen is blacker/The pain of my heart is blackest~ Mckay
If love produced a blossom/I’d take it in my palm/What a blessing, the bright color!/How soothing, such a balm!/I’d keep a petal for my own/The rest, drop from my hands/For such a flower would multiply/And populate the lands~ thesilentraven
And I began to rival legends/Long entombed before my birth./But for all my much envied fame/The lust for more would not abate./The plaques and prizes with my name/Will, like all things, disintegrate. ~ TheEpic95 now known as Helena_Noel


Rose bud, it's petals
Open and close everyday,
then one day they fall.

WOW, that is one of the nicest things I have heard in a long time. Thank you ever so much! You just made my day. And may I venture to ask, out of the ones you read, which one did you like best?

'For you, a thousand times over.' - Hassan, The Kite Runner

A professional writer is an amateur who didn't quit.

You conveyed the essence of life in a simple seventeen syllable haiku. Great, saphira! All lives are beautiful just like roses, but wherever the rose is, they will wilt one day. Death is the final destination.life and death are complementary and each holds its own special beauty. I think you conveyed all these in your simple poem. Hats off!

This isn't only about roses, for sure. This talks about life in general. It buds one day; the nest it blooms; then withers too quickly. Sad but true. I love this one the best of all your new haikus; not to belittle the rest. They're all what haikus should be.
