Haiku Set: Flatline

Flatline

I.

Over empty beach,
Grief is a seagull’s sharp cry,
Piercing sky and heart.

II.

Winter freezes life:
River of death stops the pulse,
And all souls stand still.

III.

Nothing escapes death,
Even when the time is wrong.
Time is ever wrong.

IV.

No touch that is warm,
No new words of wisdom born;
Seek them in the frost.

V.

Gone, you are with me;
I hear your voice on the wind
For eternity.
