Three Haiku For Haiku Heights

Written for Haiku Heights where the prompt is ‘Squeeze’

she squeezes my hand,
tears trickling down her cheeks –
my first day at school

—-

I squeeze her frail hand,
kiss her lips, whisper goodbye –
the light slowly dims

—-

his hands at my throat
squeezing the life out of me –
I reach for the knife

  1. Such a variety of emotions in each squeeze!! Wow!! Lovely!! Gentle affection in the first two to a dangerous situation in the last!! 😀

  2. The first two poems seem like bookends a mother squeezing a child’s hand as he leaves for school and then the child, now grown, squeezing her hand as she leaves the world. Beautiful!

I look forward to reading your comments
