upside down haiku...ii
words without sincerity
just like the verga
are uttered in vain
clouds promising desert rain
into the dark night
deeds lacking a pure motive
a rose without scent
will not touch her heart
Author's Notes:
verga is a native american term to define a desert cloud that promises rain but the atmosphere is so dry the raindrops evaporate before they  reach the ground. the cloud can be blue like normal rain clouds or blue with browish striations to show that it has picked up some dirt along the way...that is when it is said to "rain dirt"...such is life, words without sincerity and deeds without pure motive.

This is a great poem.  It also works if you read the poem starting with  the line "Will not touch her heart".  Since it said up-side down, I tried reading the poem that way and it still works. 


What kept running through my mind as I read this was a person without character, making empty promises. Raining dirt on you would be worse.
