Nights Love ( a repost)


rising from her bed
she washes nights love away
dripping on the floor



This is a poor copy of a poet well known among us. His poetry is outstanding. I love to read his work.

Am I right to sense regret? Touching haiku!

The last line left me with the sense of regret as well. Nicely done.
