My Heart. My Haiku

Darlicia Betton

My name is Darlicia Betton, as a young girl, I loved to write, it was not until college that I changed my literary outlook forever. I was enrolled in a haiku class. Haiku are short Japanese poems. They are short, three lined poems but they speak volumes. I titled this book, My Heart. My Haiku, because each of these haiku are very close my heart. Each one of these tells a story that lies in my heart. I hope that you enjoy them.

With Love, from my heart to yours,

Darlicia Betton

caugt in daydreams
I see you

One drop
Of rain
On my window

I feel the wind
In my face


Walking home
Listening to Louis Armstrong
The world turns

Seashells on the shore
Footprints in sand
Your hand and mine
