Haiku – Veiled & Fray

Some non-zombie stuff. Still haiku though. Maybe I’ll throw in a limerick tomorrow 🙂

Love exits the fray
When veiled passions reveal
Deeper truths beneath

The truth is veiled
Beneath our own prejudice.
Battle is within.

Groom removes veil
Nerves frayed, hands shaking, trembling.
Until she smiles

  1. Love all of these.
    I do indeed believe that true love is unveiled when things get deeper.
    And that, often, we hide our truths from ourselves.
    I love the last one too. Never got to experience such emotions, but it sounds marvelous.

  2. Ack! This is the best. I guess we both needed a change today. I was shaking too, and equally happy. What a delightful photo, makes me smile. 🙂
