Haikus: Obsession, Hourglass, Gratitude



Obsession with ideas,
Write, rewrite to finalize,
What rewarding time.
.
When hourglass turns again,
Obsession of you remains,
Thankful thoughts obtain.
.
Wish to hug the Sun,
Like crazy, off edge I run,
Obsession is wine.
.
Childhood obsession:
Dreams, books, and observations,
How admirable.



One Single Impression:   Hourglass

  13. I think there must beat an obsessive heart for any child to become a poet.

  18. Re: "off edge I run":
    I hope, but am afraid it might, that your poet's obsession will not turn out to be a self fulfilling prophect.
