anniversary haikus

Posted by the prisoner's wife On 5:07 PM

we love hard enough
but sometimes it hurts like this
when you are away

two years hitched at hip
trying to make sense of this
thing called loyalty

a peculiar thing
to go at it alone but
still we rise above

saturday made two years and we had the opportunity to share our day live and in color (!). despite the cold (freezing, freezing cold) our hearts, and spirits, and resolve were warmed tremendously. black love is still alive and kickin, even when stretched between two coasts.

    Prisoner's Wife, there is so much longing in these poems that the lines ache.

    Hey...love the haikus...I totally feel them.

    Congrats on 2 years...I know it can be rough.

    Black love is strange, ain't it? Different from all the rest, but the best, and the deepest love comes from our roots, our souls, our very being...

    Love your blog...
