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 !

  1. 'WOW' for your Awoo and name ! :))

    I'm so happy to see you as the first to comment.
    Thank you Moon! :)

  2. Hmm good haiku. Appreciation if i start will not be a haiku in size but a sonnet in in length:)
    all the best Nice knowing you


  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!

  4. Hi, I like it!:) Great! But I don't like to meet my honey in dreams alone, if ever..:):) lols

  5. @gems :

    Hello Gopal, welcome to my 'pitara' :)
    It would be beyond my worth still I would love to read your sonnet :))
    You are so kind with words, thank you !

  6. @ Suresh :

    Thank you Suresh for suggesting a nice suitable title with a beautiful explanation ! :)

  7. @Sagittarian :

    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 ! :)

  8. Beautiful...Lets catch up in dreams...lovely!

  9. I’m not that much in this, but
    my trust in kitty is unlimited,
    So I’m waiting to enjoy..

    Go on kitty

  10. @ جار سهيل Jar s hail :

    Hello Jar,

    Thank you for your kind and supportive words, I really do appreciate them !:)

    is my new home far away from the madding crowd :) sonnet will follow

  12. :) impressive thought and feeling .. but i more impressed by pic which complimenting the poem..

    Happy deepavali to you and your beloved one..
    .. Takecare of yourself.. so we will be blessed always with such beautiful feelings by haiku..

    its Blurred Dream !!! i can say

  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.

  14. Introvert,loner and shy ...meets in dream. Amazing Haiku dear..couldnt sais anything more . :) Stay blessed

  15. @ gems :

    Hi Gopal, I will surely visit your new home soon !..and yeah, eagerly waiting for your sonnet :) Thank you for letting me know.

  23. 'Kindred spirits' wow ! such a beautiful title !
    Happy to see your comment here Maria, Thank you ! :)

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

    Why we both are in that situation...that we are going to meet in just take one step, I'll take as many as I can.
    I think it's good for both........:)

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

  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!).

  64. @Funny Gypsy :

    Hi, Welcome here ! :)

    I am glad to know that many people find the feelings expressed through this haiku identical to the ones they have experienced in their life.
