Couple of edits in this from the live version.

BRB, editing 30 Haiku for Thursday.


The First Time

Together, begin
mindfulness; look within self
your answers lie, quiet.

Acceptance, unique
truth there to find: presenting
mental progression.

Knowing shortcomings
plan accordingly; cover
failings, redefine.

True intimacy
grows organically, sprouting
fertile, grasping vines.

Make fresh beginning
just like our first time: leave past,
recreate present.
