Twilight

shimmering water
dusk embraces waning light
surrenders to night

per darren's note in a different thread:
There is a different way to add spacing to the start of the line, so that dark or light mode doesn't matter anymore:
press CTRL and keep it pressed while you click ]
Thet will move the line to the right.
Likewise, [ will move it to the left.
Hope this helps.

nice to read your words here.
;)

I tried to do that, but it didn't work, xXx. I'll have to check Darren's thread, but I am not sure I know where to find it. Oh well! Thanks, anyway.

I figured it out, xXx. I was pressing only the Ctrl button. I had to press the indent key at the same time. Thanks!
 
no.
thank you!

i feel
you understand
the immense profundity of your compositions,
however
i am not certain
that you grasp
your reader's transformational understanding
of the found beauty(s)
conveyed
through
across-time-incremental-triumph-over-obstacle(s).

if i had an opinion, i mean.
be gentle with yourself, please.
;)

xXx, as I've often said before, I am seldom conscious of my own process of writing poems. They just come as they will. Lately, though, I've caught the haiku bug so structure does come to mind after I've written the words. Sometimes, I mess it up! Am I aware of the profundity of what I've created? Sometimes, but not always. I don't grasp the reader's transformational understanding, though, you're right. I've often had variable reactions from readers! At times, they infer too much, other times, not enough. Either way, once the poem is in front of a reader, it's gone from me!
I am trying to be gentle with myself. Never too easy, but it's a work-in-progress! Hope you are doing well.
Thank you for the above comment and thoughts. :)
