Haiku : . . . . . ?

(5-7-5 syllables)

I couldn't make out a title for this Haiku. Please suggest some  :-)


We both are alike,
Introvert, loner and shy
so let's meet in dreams !

  3. Such a fine haiku, deep in sense!
    Well, on observing the lines and analyzing the meanings, I feel " River Banks" may suit, since you see they are sitting apart, not next to each other; they are silent, alike; and the main thing is the third line - their meeting in dreams, not in reality!

    Hi Sagi, even I don't like them meeting in dreams but both being introvert, loner and shy, its very hard for them to take initiative. They can only confront each other in dreams ! So let them meet in dreams :))

    Thank you sagi for sharing your views ! :)

  13. Very beautiful lines with deeper connotations. Sometimes I, looking at the star-studded sky at night, wonder, does a star really think of itself the way I do of it? A star isn't a star for a beholder all the time. It's serene, tranquil, pure aura probably simbolises true love that one can never reach nor touch. sometimes it ignites a spark into the heart of the beholders only to chase and actualise their dream, however distant and impossible it may seem. Sometimes it seems to whisper into the ears of a love-lorn loner, '' look at me, my love for my beloved earth is so real, I know I can never get united with her, yet I always twinkle in the sky only to reassure her of my truthfulness and integrity''. Anyways, You wanted the name, right? It may be, The Earth and the Star. I am not sure though. Excellent Haiku.

    Emotions are felt through distance too...
    " Love " is a suitable title for your beautiful haiku...

  34. You evoke so much emotion in so few words, Kitty. Not a gift many can boast of. I'd give it "Where we meet". Anyway, a pleasure being here. Truly enjoy your writings.

    I think it's good for both........:)

    ReplyDelete
  41. They are in that situation because of their nature... don't you think so? :)

    First step is always the hardest that too when you are not sure about other..

  51. That'a a gr8 haiku.So very deep and thought provoking. I'm still thinking for a title. The more I think deeper I go. For sure that title has to be extraordinary to represent the explicit beauty of these lines.

  63. Beautiful! I completely identify with it (the shy guy I have a crush on is as weird as me and I doubt we'll ever meet!)
    Suggested Title: "Shying from Love" or "My Love Life" (- lol I find the latter more appropriate because I identify with it and refuse to admit that this is shying away!).
