Telling Her Good Night: Revolutionary ConTEXTing Rhyming Haiku

May 20, 2014

Her eye lids closed in/
sweet repose, and I just missed/
wishing her good night.

Yeah, It’s About You … Again: Romantic IMprov Sonnet

March 10, 2011

Yes, I sent you
a hidden haiku
late last night.
I hope it was alright.

You don’t have to wonder,
as I drifted off to slumber,
what it was about, or who.
The subject and object? Yeah, it’s you.

Not that you’re objectified
when I gaze at the inside
of my eyelids.
I felt inspired to write, so I did.

Why do I never send these to you directly?
Keeping them hidden leads to romantic subtlety.
