Five Syllable Boy

August 17, 2011

These little haikus
Remind me of a boy
Who speaks very rarely

He likes me a bit
But I don't know what to say
When all I get is;

"Yeah" As the one response
What am I supposed to do,
To find common ground

Soft spoken, quiet
Mysterious, confusing
Five Syllable Boy

The author's comments:
I'm not a big haiku person, but do to the nature of this boy who rarely has anything to say. I thought it'd be suiting.
