words abandon me

expressive thought fails me

sterile silence rules

sounding the depths of silence

surfacing at last

A sudden parting,

unforeseen but not hidden —

the silence of bones

Kerfe Roig enjoys transforming words and images into something new. You can follow her explorations on the blog she does with her friend Nina at Method Two Madness and see more of her work on her website at Kerfe Roig.

This haiku struck a chord from the first reading – I love the mystery, the silence, the starkness of the words that imply, rather than tell.

This haiku is part of our PORTAL theme!

tide breaks deep silence
fading footsteps in the sand
empty horizon

Peter Bouchier says that “Wherever I lay my pen, that’s my home.” This is his first appearance at Pure Haiku.

I like the way the poet uses these words to create such a wide, open landscape for the reader.
This haiku is part of my OCEAN series.

Piano player
in raptured silence listens
to the blackbird’s song.

clonk of plastic fan
wind-touched, clunk as it spins once
more, then silence reigns
