Violet tulips
Each petal flips, another
Memory of you

Dying Rose

Vanishing beauty
Your charms rest in memory
Altars chant her name

pink cherry blossoms

pink cherry blossoms 

cast shimmering reflections

on seas of Japan


*This was my first haiku written when I was a childand  committed to memory.
Now that I know the rules of good haiku writing, I know this does not fit the 
criteria of haiku, but  thought I'd post it anyway. Originally for PD's contest,
I've decided to look for a more recent haiku of mine that is terrible, to be used 
for "worst poem contest."

Adirondacks Ode

Climb high these mountains
And meet cliffs of history
Snug against the moon

Cold lover's warm kiss
Caress each syllable of song
Love makes joy exist
 
Adirondacks mist
The milk of mothering trees 
Melted on morning's joy

Tongue lark the dark lakes
Water births of memory
Ego ice thin here 

The nation's blood lens
The red moon night, so pride stakes
Claim to fluid truth
  
The wind prowls the skin
Stirring leaves of memories
A breast dried of peace  

Algonquian trail
Footsteps eat the span of trees
Man is small in grief

The muskets torment
Fusion of mission and right
The north shrikes lament

And beg migrants gone
But wax wing they shun the sun
Bunting snow for life.

Old Mohawk glory
Gone when forest bare shivers
In castles of ice

Steel teeth scrape the rocks
And eat iron from the ore
Of greed, killing trees

Logging the green tongue
Of the sun's wealth of heat
For this new kingdom

Of civilized men
Performing barbaric feats
Distant from the den.

Dusk the Gilded Age
Of rage ... like natives, all past
Diseased to the eye

A new dawn breaks song
And howls of joy claim again
The blessings of rain

Sceptered in the throat
Cities' diamonds of dew
Love of warblers note.

Love is eagle's joy
Climbing high against the breast
Peaking in delight.

Fishing With Grandpa

I feel it tugging
Hanging on - It must be huge!

((**HAIKU GYM**))

~Haiku press~
one sweaty work out
spot me, and count 5-7-5
dumbbells all around

~ Sweat Garden~
drench of human lawn
leotard planting between
dew drops under chin

~Listen To Your Heart~
Wink of a smile
Healthy news, swallow up blues
Kellogg's Raisin Bran

~10 commandments~
Haiku me and you
So much for the golden rule
Whatever you say

~Rhyme Zone~
Test your might tonight.
Gonna rhyme it with so much fun.
Like the mid day sun.

~Broken Tablet~
It's five seven five
I'm a haiku rule breaker
using four six four

~Big Deal~
LoL contest
Sweet pretty haiku sunrise
Not a, limerick

((**WILD WEST HAIKU**))

~Lone Ranger~
This is Texas man
Rain dries before it hits ground
What stupid cowboy

~Howdy Partner~ 
Memory of Texas  
Take me beyond shores
Let's become best friends

~Avatar~
Cold cactus desert 
Warm coyote blood all around
New Indian fur coat

~Monsoon~
raining arrowhead 
where are all the buffaloes 
pretty pink tepee 

~Acme~ 
Road runner meep meep.
Stupid coyote needs fix.
I ate a baby

Four in haiku

butterflies flying 
I see them, beautiful 
want to go with them 


rainbow colored skies 
smell of lavender in air
banana pudding on tongue


pearls of gold sunlight 
sapphire blue dripping 
golden leaves falling


trees are standing tall 
birds singing sweet music 
songs of memory filled past

THE SUNSET GLORY

The fading 
sunset
With its 
pale 
tint of 
orange
Life is 
memory.





This is my 
first ever 
Haiku...something 
new 
that I've 
wrote.

Halloween Haiku

Halloween Haiku (the forest recalls) spirits awaken orange glow before nightfall. . . . All Hallow Eve dawns the forest recalls screams of caged men burned in fires. . . . a druid’s dark sky the lord of the dead lingers in woods’ memory. . . . a lone owl’s strange hoot reaching for moon black barbed spindly arms outstretched. . . . The worshiping trees crescent moon upturned a faceless pale entity. . . . *Sanheim grins down *Sanheim was the Celtic Lord of the Dead, for whom human sacrifices were made to make amends for sins of the evil dead. All Hallow Eve took place the night before their new year, when Sun was worshiped on the next day. For PD's HALLOWEEN HAIKU Poetry Contest

Beauty in Paris, France

Le Soleil se couche derriere les Eiffel
                       De la promenade J’admire
                            Une memoire pittoresque
                            
                            *

**Sun sets behind the Eiffel
              From the boardwalk I adore
                                 A picturesque memory
