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


Leben

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

Time has passed us by

-Leben-

[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.
