Haiku Suite for my Beloved


First there was friendship
Then the world became tender
And now I love thee

When I happen to call thee
The flowers of my garden
Dispense their fragrance

Birds high in the sky
And the splendid butterflies
Pay thee a tribute

It seems that my heart
Repeats again and again
Thy beloved name

Thou art a mountain
Clad with the purest of clouds
Reaching to Heaven

First I lived in Time
Now owing to thy presence
I am eternal
