TENDERNESS OF NIGHT

,,,,,,,,,,,...,,,,,,,,,,


tower’s gold lanterns stroke warm sheen on war-torn rocks… peace wraps pastel night

kids use toy guns
to wage make-believe war -
a soldier looks on

War...

War…
     By Dane Smith-Johnsen

War is good for greed.
Hatred!  Repugnance.  And death…
It reinstates need.

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

HAIKU CRAZY

~GOING HAIKU CRAZY 2~


*Willow fang*
/
rose size of a tree
thorns size of a ninja sword
indeed what you can't see~


*Cook Out*
/
Ashes above house
Cloudy sky with no rainbow
taste like chicken~


*Bayou Lovers*
/
Deep fried frog stool stew
One leg for me one for you
Mmm dark hazel eyes~


*Concept*
/
Life is on the run
war between good and evil
no point in stop sign~


*hollows eve*
/
master in disguise
beware of her tricks and treats
natures~biggest mask~

 
*Forever Gone*
/
John 3 verse sixteen
rejoice the light that exhales
will not parish, but!  


*Puppet*
/
Pinocchio dance
follow crimson sky of lies
mist of foolishness~


*Silver Lining*
/
horizon of time
perception deep in the blue
feel what is beyond~

MUSICAL HAIKU NOTES

MUSICAL HAIKU NOTES
   “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “ “

      
       music grooves wild spell
hip hop rock thumping acid heat---
                    wind’s fingers click sleek
                                
                                 *

	                

       rhapsody in jazz
jiggling scents of post-war blues---
                    wildflowers dizzy

                                 *
	
       while hand-carved flutes stroll
notes from a classic forest--- 
                    upturned grass listens
                                 
                                  *
                                  *
	
      oh ballads moan soft
lyrics aching for lost love--- 
                    navel  of snake writhes

                                   *
                                 *  *	
                                  	
       of best, church choirs pray
chanting angelic blessings---
                    white dove’s breath is touched!

WAR AND PONDER HAIKU'S

Mother's hope shot!
Who will rescue tomorrow?
Unending woe...
..............................................
Midnight town crier!
Women and children take cover
Men running to war.
..............................................
Dry leaf swaying down
Looking from where it falls
Fresh leaves, take caution.
.............................................
Not minding the meat,
Isolated to ponder,
Woeing solution. 
...........................................
Plates without hope
war came frowning
never to smile.

My Dog

We share a bond
You rejected bird hunting 
I rejected war
