his eyes speak of love
but sadness is hidden there
under the surface

Jeannie said...

yes

Leslie said...

Yes, I see it, too. Do you think we have to know some sadness to understand true love?

Delphyne said...

Lovely. I listened to Harry Belafonte over at Noelle Rene's place yesterday and one line in Try to Remember goes: without the hurt, the heart is hollow.

Beautiful...had a talk about some sadness this morning with a dear male friend...feel like this was for us.
Happy Haiku My Heart Friday, Meri !

Noelle Renee said...

Meri,
It is a stunning photograph in both simplicity and depth. Love and sadness may have a sort of twinship yes. We are always seeking some part of our lost Self in the Other, whether it is in the physical or some physical manifestation of the divine.

Sarah said...

Beautifully written and I love the image you've chosen to go with your haiku. Those eyes speak for all of us.

Inspired by your words and image:

What would you have done
had you seen the nameless saint
weeping for the world?

To all of you whose emails show up as "no reply," I am grateful for your comments. I'd love to be able to answer you individually, but that's how it goes.

I love reading all your haikus. They touch me, make me think, sometimes cause awe because of your facility with words, sometimes make me laugh (like John's post today, continuing as it does after the haiku).
