Dear Haiku, pray, how do you do? Day after day, my heart yearns for you. Such a hard pill to swallow; All my jokes feel so hollow; Must our relationship really be through?

Can't you recall all the fun we once had? Those pranks you would pull in our pad? Before your nature studies, We were lovers and buddies; Your new seriousness makes me so sad.

Yes, yes! There's that smile in your eyes! Come! Enough with the humorless sighs! You were my senryu, The witty one I wooed... Please - don't let genius bring about our demise.

Whenever d’Verse invites us to share poems of our choosing with our poetry community, I tend to select works of mine from many months ago. However, in response to this week’s prompt, I’m opting, for the first time, to share a poem that I completed and published just today.
I simply had a lot of fun crafting this particular poem, and I’d like to share it with you on this April Fool’s Day. I do hope you enjoy it! 😁
