A Sister -ALL IN ONE

My lovely sister ,I love you!
whenever you care for me,
with your chubby cheeks ,you smile at me,
whenever you look at me,
with small beautiful eyes,
I feel I am the luckiest girl!!!
My crazy sister ,I love you!!
whenever you tease me,
whenever you chase, 
whenever you call me with silly names,
for me they are more than the worldly fame,
whenever you play pranks,
and I cry from my tear tanks,
whenever you laugh at me,
whenever you smile at me,
I feel I am the bird in the sky!
My ordering sister I love you!
whenever you give your work,
whenever you command,
give your clothes for pressing and silly demands,
if I fulfill it or not,
you always remain the same,
my cutie sister please be the same!
my angry sister I love you!
you get angry easily,
but I can convince you easily,
overall you are my sister LOVELY,
you are lovely, you are cute,
whenever I shout make me mute,
you are angry, you are commanding,
you provide me the best surrounding.
you are wise ,you are clever,
you are the best companion ever!!!!!
whenever I cry ,you too cry,
whenever I smile you too smile,
Thank you for coming in my life,
and cheering and illuminating my life with bright light!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Harvest Prayer//Double Haiku

   Oh ye harvest moon
hung low and ripe in the night
   Bless thou our harvest

   May all our hard work
through God’s grace and fair weather
   Reap they full bounty.






For Brian Strand's
Hymn of Harvest contest

digging for sandcastles

                     

     sand wishes
  toss in seaweed too...
swallowed by hungry sea

sand as slate words of love and dreams... rippled erasers
castles of sand and sky water reflecting it~ waves claim back what's theirs
dreamy sandcastles collecting dust in bags... day's work for Sandman
Sandman visits sprinkling sleepy stardust... falls asleep on shore bucket of tears mixed with gritty sadness... crumbled sandcastles **dec 5, 2010 for Skat's Sandcastle haiku contest :)**

REOPENING OF THE SCHOOL

First day to school is very good for children like us, very cool.
We meet our new friends and old one’s too,
But we don’t know we should catch whom.
Children are excited to know the teacher,
As they need a good future.
 We come to know the rules of school,
So that we do not work according to us like fools.
We share our tiffins and tell our feelings,.
We ask last year’s percentage ,
To know whether the child is of good stage. 
We give our introduction lovingly,
So that everyone may know us clearly.
There is nothing to study much as its first day, full of fun.
We go home hand in hand ,
To remain life long friends….

The Wolf, Coyote, Fox and Hound

The Wolf

The wolf guards her brood,
Bones of trespassers before,
Death to the unwarned!

My snarl says it all,
The wolf rules this land, no doubt,
Tread lightly, my friend.

The lone wolf unleashed,
Don’t trust the strange traveler,
Trust is never free.


The Fox 

The fox senses spring,
The hound is too tired to fight,
Conflict delayed, friends.

The hound hides in wait,
"How smart are you, Miss Foxy?".
Nature in action.

The fox loves to play,
The hound takes his role to heart,
Frustration sets in.


The Coyote

The coyote sleeps,
Wild pheasants roam peacefully,
Hunger soon brings death.

Sunset brings brown death,
The rabbit tastes too gamey,
A nice change of pace.

A cry in the night,
The coyote is a force,
Mutual respect.

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
