Fado (Portugal)




From here on
Sweetheart! Shall part ways
So says the fate





Separated
From symphony, a solo note plays
Lovelorn fado

  14. Words means little if they couldn't express what they wish to say. Not the case here. Very touching and tender haikus. I am already a fan of your haikus. You never disappoint friend.

    ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL.
