Simply Haiku, Summer 2007 vol.5, no.2

cutting my foot
on a tree-root
I felt
the desolation of Descartes
slowly slide into me

for whom then
did I blossom?
I cast my gaze
over the light and shade
of the distant past

a warm teardrop
as I waken
from the dream
of being held back
from the brink of a cliff

as if
falling down
into the galaxy,
I would fall
into your heart

dipping my toes
into the blue water
of the inlet,
I felt my body
surge with life
