monsoon driftwood rests
beside a mossy boulder
flowing river sighs

upon the driftwood
someone  has carved long ago
an arrow pierced heart

mossy boulder knows
the drifter who often carves
hearts pierced by arrows

    I like how these stick to the style of old school haiku and also break the rules a bit. I like the anthropomorphism and the link bewteen the second and third. Awesome!
