Broken heart exposed

Pain, anger, sadness cry out 

Love is here, waiting.


Editor’s Note

Haiku is an unrhymed poetic form consisting of 17 syllables arranged in three lines of 5, 7, and 5 syllables, respectively. The haiku first emerged in Japanese literature during the 17th century as a terse reaction to elaborate poetic traditions. However, it did not become known by the name haiku until the 19th century. – Debora Buerk, Editor.
