The Accidental Poet

This poet was born,
not from an urge to create
high literature.

The essence of life
drawn in compact form and style
found expression.

No pretensions here
only a cry from the heart
of an injured soul.

A souls cry is profound!

No matter the reason or the source -- the end result is beautiful. I always look forward to your haiku!

I love it.

Many great writers are born from tragedy and hardship. Note the word great! That's what your poems are.

Kim, Muff, HM, and Karen, knowing that you are reading my poems and finding them meaningful motivates me to keep writing them.
