"Basho's Grave" haiku

Here Basho still sleeps
But his words whisper to me
Sweet summer longing

"Red Threads" tanka

The Chinese believe
There are Red Threads tying us
To our destinies

Our friends - our loves - all we know
Bound close to us forever

"Greek Steps" haiku

I follow the walls
Keeping within the shadows
Greek summer sunshine

Words Copyright © Res Burman 21st August 2017


There are some eyes
That seem to look right into your soul.
There are some faces
That remain in your soul forever.

There are some hands
Whose slightest touch
Feels like a kiss
Upon your lips.

There are some necks
Made to worship and admire.
Some skin that seems to shine
With the kisses the sun laid upon it.

There are some lips…..

"Shy Smile" haiku

One shared cup of tea
A shy smile across the room
And then you were gone
