We are together
Spending a moment in time
Friends around the world




Is that right?.

Fire dancing with red heat
Trees keeping a watch.

Campfire smoke burning my eyes
Refuge from the world

May I save this, @Meirene6307?   It touches something for me.  I don’t know if you meant it but it’s like the feelings are overwhelming, bringing tears to your eyes, but you say it’s the campfire smoke. It’s really beautiful. Especially “refuge from the world”


Peace to you!

Haikus are scary
to create, I'm wary
Am I doing this right?

I've vivid flashbacks
of elementary school
I fear that it's bad

I had to ask Google
'how to haiku' and then I
realized after three

And now there is four
I don't know what I'm doing
I'm sorry, I tried!
lol!

This really captures the essence of Tom “Don’t run Tom”.   And then-“Jake holds him close”-just so comforting.

Dale the young genius
Abandoned, neglected one
Love found with four men

Nurturer is Paul
Don't underestimate him
He loves all his boys

Open-hearted Ri
Emotions worn on his sleeve
Loyal to his men

Earth-wanderer Jas
Eyes that see the unseen world
Chaos soothed with calm

Flynn, fire contained
and love in his heart
A fighter for right

Oh @JL, I’m kind of in awe of you.  You show the soul of each of the men.  


The two lines I love the best are: Earth-wanderer Jas and Flynn, fire contained.

Fear lives in the heart
Chaos of a busy world
Rejection by others

Forgiveness from past
Compassion of friends to heal
Restoration Time

Friendship can exist here
Commitment to a new life
Relationship found

Freedom to fly high
Contentment coming from peace
Relaxation Found

These are awesome.  I'm afraid I don't have any poet in me, but I certainly appreciate the efforts of others.

Thank you.
