A poem inspired by haiku style and German dialect. The formatting is my own.


Tick tock goes the clock
Time flows like a river
The waters rise
Deltas divide
-ist gegangen-
To soar on wings like eagles...
To be pulled into the depths
To hold your hand
Long for your presence
To sit alone in sadness
The waters rush on

Time has passed us by


[Translated words]
vermisst: to miss
ist gegangen: gone
passieren: happens/happening
lieben: love
Leben: life/to live

i like this, i like the format and the sentiment. haiku uses familiar symbols, such as the river, and you use them well.
