FRAGRANT TOUCH


(Dedication: For Regina Riddle)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~



Tree caterpillar crawling
Strong windy debris;
Blown over the bough

~~~~~~~~~


Violet blossoms
Vine decorations dancing;
Sun and breeze move

~~~~~~~~~


Joy wears a face:
Your smiles highlight;
Dazzle of morning

~~~~~~~~~


Hasty scribblings
Poetry in motion;
Grassy blooms unnoticed

~~~~~~~~~


Rose garden memories
Touch of rapture;
Thorny issues exfoliate

~~~~~~~~~


Sweet yellow guava
Pleasant tasty treat;
Oxford Road townhouse

~~~~~~~~~


This old Jasmine tree
Fondly remembers;
Our rowdy flower picking

~~~~~~~~~


Joy wears a face
Nature reveals seasons;
Change comes to all

~~~~~~~~~


Look to strange change
To re-jig feelings;
Afternoon rain respite

~~~~~~~~~


Be of good cheer
Bear with bad weather;
Dance with danger

~~~~~~~~~


Mid-autumn frolic
Peace in kind harvest;
Moon cakes and moonlight

~~~~~~~~~


Ghosts of lovers past
Touch of fond rapture;
Breezy plumeria garden

~~~~~~~~~


Voice in the wind
Fragrant with rain;
Black clouds threaten

~~~~~~~~~


Evening stroll
Hand-in-hand;
Plumeria flowers preside

~~~~~~~~~


So much to discern
Harmony trees here;
Gardens By The Bay

~~~~~~~~~


Evening serenade
Cicadas and frogs;
Sounds at nightfall

~~~~~~~~~


Orchard Boulevard stroll
Sense surrounds;
Fragrant touch sifting

~~~~~~~~~


Two yellow butterflies
Fluttering between shrubs;
Sky Bridge tower above

~~~~~~~~~


Haiku surprise
Or senryu moment;
Experience reveals

~~~~~~~~~


Observe dear heart
What nature shows;
See things clearly

~~~~~~~~~


Frangipani tree
Crimson and red flowers;
Walkway perfumery 

~~~~~~~~~

3 Haiku

In January 2007 the fishing trawler, 'Pere Charles'was lost off Dunmore East. Co Waterford, 
Ireland, with the loss of five fishermen. I knew four of them, two very well.

                                         Pere Charles 

                                   Soft water all quiet
                           Bubbles of air take last breath
                               Five souls bid goodbye

                                       Flowing Music

                                   White water tinkling 
                                Exudes musical moments
                                  Hear a perfect peace

                                           Soft Power

                                      Soft flowing water
                               Creates valley and canyon
                                      Kisses ocean, free

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

Author's Note:
Deep condolance for the victims of Sandy Hook School in Newtown, Connecticut,
Inspired by Zamalea George Poetry "Sweet Children, Sleep"

Silence

(SILENCE)

Illusive silence---
evaporating in noise
at rest in one’s peace.

(SILENT SUNSET)

The tranquil sunset---
in skies of sunlit silence
waits for the morning.

(GLIDER PILOT)

Within sun-split clouds---
one inhaling scenic grace
immersed in silence.

The peace sign

.
Hail all the peace sign:
Although at large a janus,
Monolith at spring.

Hanakotoba


Words are not enough
Language of April showers
Say it with flowers.

Gracious camellia
Daintily posing, but in vain
Begonia lost in thought.

Desirable
Hopes teeming with ambition
Of a stargazer.

From friendship to love
Exchanging yellow petals
With the deepest red.

Delicate beauty
Of hibiscus in full bloom
Inspires iris.

A blushing lilac
Unaware of dawning day
Dreaming of first love.

Bittersweet flower
Ever loyal to the end
Won’t betray a friend.

Parting time is near
Save the memories within
And forget-me-not.

Yellow hyacinth
With a heart that knows no peace
Nest of jealousy.

Morning breeze scatters  
The rich fragrance of jasmine’s  
Deep sensuality.

PEACE II

PEACE II


Oceans filled with tears
Shed by the angels weeping  
For souls fell in war  

Open hearts to love 
Making hate capitulate 
Let's give peace a chance

Solace of Nature

Shiver of the leaves,
A reverberating peace:
Solace in the woods.

Nurtured Peace

New growth of life blooms
Nurtured by water and light
Look within for peace
