In Limbo



edge of the precipice-
catastrophe barely delayed:
focus on the reins

circle’s focus,
know not of edge-
break-in delayed

delayed reflex-
lost my edge it seems,
time to focus

The first is definitely the best. You had some fun here.

The first one is also my favorite. It tells a mini story all by itself.

UL-

Liked the first and third...the pic. reminded me of one of the last chapters in Harry Potter and the Half Blood Prince book, where Dubmledore takes Harry to the prepice. Good one.

oh geez, it's good to see you writin... yr presence has been missed and hope you are doing well.... how often do we take the time to peer over the edge... and refocus... the images yr words portray i am still considering... i believe that photo is etretat, france... it is a beautiful spot.. near the normandie coast... i remember sitting on the cliffs, beautiful sunny day, soft breeze blowing smelling the salty air.. ah, not a care in the world...

These are very clever haiku UL. Here's to peace and relaxation.
