Valentine’s Day Haiku + Tanka x2 + 5

Love is a folly

Best left to those stone hearted

Who love to play games

And leave pieces in their wake

Of broken hearts and dead dreams

Love is an exam

Sent to test and try our soul

Until we learn to truly

Believe that we are worthy

Of its great treasure and gift

And learn to let go
