Feelings from the Seventh Sister

River ever flowing
‘fore Gillette’s “Seventh Sister”
nature's beauty thrives

scenic view sparks thoughts
stone castle amid the trees
represents my life

A cool winter day
exhaling yesteryear's dreams
future seems unclear

Note:  William Gillette's estate, called Seventh Sister, was built in 1914. 
Connecticut's government took over the property in 1943 and it was 
added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Hurricanes blow away our canes stumbling us down on the ground rise to walk again rebuilding places like a midrib broom as one the sun shines again
Nov. 7, 2012 Note: This Haiku was inspired by the theme of the previous contest of SandyIvy, with theme, Hurricane. It came late because of my PC problem.

A surge of comfort,
Strokes of paint soak lavish skies,
Rekindling dreams.

Restores the soul to
Heavenly places, dazzling
Jewels recap ones heart.

Revealing beauty,
Life’s radiant reminder,
That hope is alive.

white wigwam winter
Gitche Gumee waters wash --
cerulean blue

dry Dreamtime summer
Uluru in distance dawns --
crepuscular red

May 9, 2014

*These haikus are about creation myths, January being a metaphor
for beginnings. Gitche Gumee is the Native American name for Lake Superior, the largest and coldest of the North American Great Lakes. 
It is a reference to the Song of Hiawatha, by Longfellow. 
Uluru is the Aboriginal name for Ayers Rock, the sandstone massif 
in the center of Australia. Dreamtime, in the Aboriginal creation myth, 
is a place beyond time and space in which the past, present, and 
future exist wholly as one. As these two places are in different hemispheres, it is Winter in one and Summer in the other.
The two haikus are intended to contrast opposites, hot/cold, wet/dry,
winter/summer, blue/red (opposite ends of visible spectrum)

Fun-diseased world

Avenged adult world
Fishy funny kids’ play world
The saturnine feast.

Sorcerous* Nox night
Lone places yawn hell pervades
global fun-disease

Ghosts grovel and then wolves weep
Goblins grin skeletons sway
Thus the streets savaged


* Roman goddess of night

Time ticks and could trick
Could go places unnoticed 
It can kick and trip

                                        Light house tower's light
                                      twinkles like a star at night
                                            from distant places

                                           Sailor takes due care
                                     to reach the sea coast safely
                                           light house blesses all

Final Rest

                                                           Peaceful places frame
                                                 Our lives as we move through time
                                                           Towards our final rest
