The Lost


                                                Innocent lifeless
                                       Pretty children rest in peace
                                             Let us pray for them

                                            The kids were victims
                                       The shooter was victim too
                                             Let's not put a blame

                                                 Exclamation sign
                                          Love family, love it right
                                        Don't loose, hug them tight

                                                  Dear educators
                                           Part of the victims as well
                                               The lifetime tribute

                                           Mourn traveled the world
                                         Burn by cause last on effect
                                               Careful in our steps

Deep condolance for the victims of Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut,

A family praising


A gather of hands
A feasting at dinnertime
Hear the sounds of smiles

In Spring

Driving home from work, I watch the darkening sky and the trees along the streets bending in the wind. Big drops of rain begin to splatter against my windshield until suddenly, my entire car is being bombarded. As the moaning wind picks up, the downpour increases and I adjust my windshield wipers accordingly. Nearing my neighborhood, I glimpse a foretoken of spring.

behind their mother
young quail scurry in a row. . . 
March winds scatter rain

Soon I am pulling into my driveway, wondering vaguely where the baby quail were bound for and relieved to be escaping the onslaught of cold wind-tossed rain. My spirit has been lifted by the sighting of the quail family, for I know better days are ahead. . . 

A few weeks pass, and I find myself becoming excited as I always do after April has arrived. I begin noticing the various plants and trees of my small city, in particular, the burgeoning buds of my own front yard  pear tree, and then at last it happens; I awake one fine morning to my favorite augur of the season:

outside my window
myriads of white blossoms. . . 
the trill of birds

OVERSEAS FILIPINO WORKERS

                                           

                                           Sacrificing loneliness in other country
                                                        For family’s welfare
                                             Considered as heroes by Filipinos

Lilly-Pads and Frogs

Nothing Changes 
On the Lilly-Pads

From Island to Island
instinctively frogs visit...
boys chasing the girls.

Scottish Frogs

The croak of the wild
the gathering of the ponds...
McFrog family.

From Antarctica

a glacial lake
reflecting snow- capped mountains...
mirror image

dripping water
suddenly frozen...
ice sculptures

two penguins
waddling through snow...
happy family
 
antarctica
inside my bed room...
animal planet

CHRISTMAS EVE

CHRISTMAS EVE

reindeer on the roof
crackling wood fire on the hearth
stirring memories

how magic the night
with all its mingled voices
for joy shed a tear

the tree – family
the lights – red, green, silver – bright
christmas child’s delight

the manger scene
with babe, simple animals
how warm, natural

head on a pillow
gazing up at the ceiling
a web of shadows

young thoughts go racing
mist – santa’s elves on the stairs
wishing time away

till it’s morning
those presents under the tree
eyelids grow heavy

before dropping off
this deep, jolly, ho, ho, ho!
Then to sleep

Christmas Without a Christmas Tree

Glittery Christmas
Filled cavity on my mind
Christmas ain't yet come

**************************

Sight flickering glare
Alternately trap my eyes
But shines ain't for me

***************************

Christmas, dear Christmas
Be the present of my tears
Tiny hug in missed

****************************

A tree full of lights
Shimmered warm, deep on my cries
Sad memories blinked

****************************

Pretty past inhaled
When time puts togetherness
Now just three of us

****************************

New family tree
The Santa's gift as mercy
God truly blessed me
