They do not exist.

Phantoms comprised of mind fog.

Vapor Emperors.

Vapor Emperors

Revealing lives of times past -

Howling in the mist.

Howling in the mist.

Twin wolves, one of heart, one mind.

Who is it they call?

Who is it they call?

Kindred spirits, those who sing;

those who always hear.

Those who always hear,

do not listen with their ears,

nor see with their eyes.

Nor see with their eyes

But only sense past the walls
from the heart unbound

From the heart unbound

I send good wishes to all

Good, bad and ugly

The source from which springs boundless

For those who missed it--from the first page of this thread:
 

Quote

Use the last line of the preceding haiku as the first line of yours.

 

The structure is three lines:

 

5 syllables

7 syllables

5 syllables

 


Unless he's Mr. Ed

Those drugs were pyschedelics
Nothing is better

Break the chain, sure

Yeah, skip the five-seven-five

But keep the balance

 

But keep the balance

Stand on one foot, touch your nose

Juggle some old books

Great laughter and mirth

Else three four three lost

why bother counting at all?

All returns to dust!

 

All returns to dust

Or else to ashes returns

Buried or else burnt.

Yum yum then toot toot,
ridding your heart of its soot:
a green explosion! 

 
 

 

A green explosion

As the winter turns to spring

And all is reborn
