Haiku for My Friends

These are each for a friend of mine. If you want to know who each is for, you may guess and I will tell you if you are right.

I only miss you
After the onset of night
Far too late to call


~

Like the Autumn bite
I wish I didn't like you
As much as I do

~

If I am careful
Don't upset the cart too much
This could be always

~

Sometimes I stare in
Wonder at your back, your face
Such beauty wounds me

~

You really don't need
As much as you seem to need
The earth spins forward

~

Our relationship
Is new like Spring come to a field
All bugs and earthworms

~

Testing the waters
Has always been like diving
I know no restraint

~

Leaving Spring behind
I like you so much better
What could Summer hold


If you want more or you want one for you, make some noise.
