Loss

The following is a "Waku," or "Waka" in some translations. In any case, it is similar to a Haiku in that it follows the 5 - 7 - 5 syllabic form, but it adds an additional 7 syllable, new line at the end. I find the form challenging and fun to work with. Enjoy!

Loss

Walking alone now.
Silence my new companion.
Freezing. Cold Springtime.

Hard lessons. Allowing pain.
