So do no one harm


Moaning and sighing 
The wind tells me her secrets
But she's not our friend

The high mountain is
Even when wind whistles there
Always prattling on

The mountains love me
I sing loudly from her peaks
Sleep in her valleys

She knows me so well
I drink her fresh flowing streams
Then talk to her trees

Wind breezes away
Huffing and puffing in scorn
Birds laughing along

I rest my head down
They twitter their friendship
Happy that I stay

So do no one harm
Speaking to those that you meet
Just see them then smile

Sing on the mountain
Open your hearts and speak your words
Love one another

  5. Oh! Poor wind not to be part of that love! But if we think of the wind as the prevailing political scene, well may we see the difference between the eternal and the temporary. Beautifully riddled, beautifully detailed!

  15. You had me at the opening--funny, I didn't think about this as a haiku sequence until I read Gillena's comment--It still has the feel of a longer piece to me--beautifully penned!!

    Great ending Old Egg! One must be prepared to take on anyone and at the same time to give way for the sake of love!

  18. Lovely poem, Robin! And it goes back to my quote:
    “If you reveal your secrets to the wind, you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees.” - Khalil Gibran
