A HAIKU CHAIN by Susan L. Daniels and Noel A. Ihebuzor

 

it echoes–
this pause before words
weighted breath

It speaks loud
the empty spaces
between words

those moments
minds falter before
sharing truth

*** A haiku conversation between my duet duet partner and I. Came about after I commented on the main poem she wrote. Susan’s Haiku is in normal font, mine is italicized.

        it echoes–
        this pause before words
        weighted breath

        N:
        It speaks loud
        the empty spaces
        between words

        S:
        those moments
        minds falter before
        sharing truth

        N:
        truth haltered
        for so long, now free
        freeing tears!

        S:
        and floating
        on that salt river
        soft releasing

        N:
        hidden fears
        uncertainties now
        flowing away

        tumbling down
        tongue now unleashed to
        wonder why

        Wow, we did good!
