Screams loudly for help (haiku)

Screams loudly for help
But no one can hear her cries
She’s always ignored

 

Just now I was tidying up my desk, and I found this written on a scrap piece of paper, tucked underneath my mouse pad. I don’t remember when I wrote it. Oh well. Here’s a post, since I’m trying to post here a little more frequently than what I did last year. I also read through one of my notebooks, and I see that there are quite a few haikus that I could share here, so I may do that.

I hope everyone is well. And wow, it’s already the end of January?!

I’ll wait for you here (haiku)

I’ll wait for you here
With this old, glowing lantern
And undying hope

This was written for a dear friend whose birthday is today. I miss him. It’s been a long time since we last communicated. I’ve feared that maybe he succumbed to a serious illness, and I have tried to contact him in several ways in this time, but I’ve had no response in about two years. I think about him and pray for him every day. I still hold on to my hope that he’s alive and well, though, and I am trying new ways to search for him.

Ray, this is for you. I miss you so much. I hope you’re well. I hope we can talk again someday.
