Moonlight on the snow

Reflecting through our window.

Your pillow, untouched.

This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend Trifextra prompt, in which the editors asked us for a haiku: an unrhymed verse form of Japanese origin having three lines containing usually five, seven, and five syllables respectively.

I know haikus aren’t supposed to rhyme; that’s just how the words fell into place. I hope it’s no less enjoyable for that.

    you always get right to the heart of things, this is no exception.

    again, I found my eyes filling with the force of your words and the ache that empty pillowcase would bring.
