Haiku - Window.

My heart is
a window frame with
no window.

Small ideas are often the most profound. I'm not one for long, wordy poems--I guess that shows. But this is so small that I think it leaves a lot to the reader. Mr.Shamchuk always says that when you read anything, you're really reading yourself. I guess that I always take that to mean that you find little parts of you as a being in literature (maybe in all walks of life?) and you grab hold of that.
