It's a poem in mixed form-- haiku, cinquain, and sonku-- to convey some deeper, spiritual currents, with sadness.


SWEET SAVOUR

Strayed far from the nest
I'm fed up living with dust
for years fleeting shade

bereft
of melody
of spirit I sink to
the hades of utter loss
I can't

reckon hidden mysteries
I have lost the sea
for a mere cupful

void of patience and
peace now as I touch the breasts
of the field I crave

for a pure breath
native to
my being I search
sweet savours

of love
