Haiku on “True”

By Noel Ihebuzor

Haiku on True

True speaks not false nor

fake, voice genuine to self and

you, clear, clean and real


Opposite of false,

true stands upright, shiny bright

while false falls in slime


the false , with time,  drinks

shame;  the true with time flowers

petals blooming proud

  1. Noel–gorgeous, gorgeous set of haiku, love the close–the false, with time, drinks/shame; the true with time flowers/petals blooming proud.

    Wow, wow, wow. Your haiku always have such heart, heat, and spirit in them–which makes then so very true!


      1. Imela–you are most welcome! I took a trip over to your exegesis, as well, if you want some thoughts to make you fall asleep 🙂

        My writing and thoughts re. faith are dense and heavily branched, and will probably work better than an Ambien to send you to sleep!
