there have been a lot of haikus posted here lately, but this is the only one so far that fits perfectly into that catagory. well done. you have said so very much about love in three short lines whereas other writers have written stanza after stanza on the same subject but without the impact of your haiku. i really like it.
I love how impactful this haiku became. I'm not really sure about your title choice, it's a little confusing. Maybe you have just broken up with someone and realized this concept as you were writing, which makes more sense to me. At least, I think this is the type of love we're talking about.
Eu-phor-i-a, which is 4 syllables, completes the second line, which is difficult to place in such a contained/structured writing like a haiku. I think after reading that line, it contains most of its "magic" in its meaning.
The last line sums up nicely and it also through me for a loop. I like the contrasting thought between line 2 and 3, it brought everything together great and connected in meaning throughout without being obviously blunt.
MMMM, love. love is??? Anyways, it's a hard word to pin down, and defining it by what it's not is more clever in my opinion. I really like this, it sounds... euphoric. The idea that love is only there sometimes, and it's only amazing in those brilliant moments, makes it all the more wanted and worth it. Love as an idea seems so perfect, but it definitely creates some chaos. Anyways, cute picture, and great diction on your haiku. There is a new perfume out called Euphoria, so the word has been on my mind, and it feels like a focal point of the haiku. But yes, was enjoyable to read.
wow a haiku labeled haiku that is actually a haiku(depending upon how picky one chooses to get with the nature aspect...)
5-7-5 right? unless i'm reading wrong.
i think you are so right too. it has its ups and downs, good and bad days. but all in all would we rather go without? more than likely not.
good stuff. positive too. i like.
