Silent Voice

--Tree Silhouette-- 

shimmering tree
there’s no footsteps around       
but fallen leaves 

**
afternoon twilight
heaven is listening
peaceful lonesomeness
  
**
Autumn waits 
wind blows the mind   
leaves falling softly

       I still remember 
       slide down a polished railings 
       Autumn holidays

Autumn Shawl

Fluttering golden 
brown leaves dancing on air falls 
undressing nature

The wild geese flying 
overhead a sign of peace
winter closes in

Throwing the old peat
keeping a fire burning 
as cold approaches

Treibt schon Schnee über das Land

---sweetening the kiss

though autumn arrives
dew remains upon the plum
a pink tongues delight

teeth tease amorous
pulling the ripe juices in
pursed purple bliss

the mouth seeds the womb
plumbing the depth of desire
sweetening the kiss

Of Autumn Rush

Squirrels chase scraps of acorns-

Winter's Blood

Nature's dust,
Caking softly white
Silver rust,
Upon globes of grapes. 
Protective, 
Wit' her moon powder, of
Autumn's gift:
Her purple sugar.
Aching heart!
Poison'd blue & red,
Nature's blood,
Seal'd in winter's grape.

Hide away here her endless vine,
Her infinite potion of crimson wine.

Autumn Memories


across tree-lined yards
leaves dance in colorful frocks --
distant school bell chimes

through open windows
the scent of pumpkin spice drifts --
an orange moon rises 

under charcoal skies 
rain dampens mouldering leaves --
a lone snowflake falls

The Fox

a fox lingers free


 
a pre-dawn scavenge
vale of unknowing awaits...
slight movement, cautious


 
retreating homeward
a secure haven to feast...
anxious pups await

 
 
__________ 
The Wolf


 
passive and active
a painted face of beauty...
canis lupus thrive


 
the alpine pair climb
slow and deliberate movement...
together for life


 
a new season comes
basking in autumn sunlight...
a brilliant trek dreamed 
 
__________
The Coyote


 
opportunistic
along the foothills searching...
a lone Coyote roams


 
proud and elusive
a desperate plight to sustain...
a silent rain falls


 
a gift forsaken
preserving natures balance...
the jackal cries pain...

Whence Springs Beauty

It’s October, we find time to go by the spring-house to get the tulips. It is time to prepare for winter and the inevitable coming of spring.  The bulbs look hopelessly dead and ugly, rather pitiful in fact.  John nurtures them tenderly.

fall gardener tucks the bulbs in bed till spring's alarm
Through many snows and chilling temperatures, we do not consider at all what is taking place under the ground. One warm March day we see tiny noses poking up through the soil around the back porch. By April, we are sitting in the swing admiring the result of John’s loving labor of last fall.
seeing the blooms we recall dried-up bulbs
How could such ugliness have turned to such beauty in the cold, hard earth? As May approaches bringing other flowers, our short-lived tulips drop their blossoms and say good-bye. But as John knows, the wisest of gardeners do not hasten to bother the beauty in its passing.
dust to dust all blossoms shrivel with time food for the soil wilting leaves nourish the bulb hidden in the ground
The bulb remains unattractive throughout the whole cycle of growth. Along in mid-July when all external signs of life have faded, John removes the unsightly bulbs from their bed, putting them back in the spring-house until fall. Without them, there will be no blossoms next spring. It is the care we show the bulb which bursts into the beauty we bless in time. HM

Harvest Moon -- Lughnasadh Haiku

**I wrote against traditional 5 -7-5 and twisted to 7-5-7 on these...can I do that?**

1.
Looking up in the sky at 
A full harvest moon 
Cool, aglow this autumn night

2.
Mists circle in, surrounding 
Earth's last summer song 
Warm nights are now memories

3.
The Hunter calls the Chosen
To this sacred grove 
Children of seasons gather

4.
The leaves--brown and gold and red 
Signify the end 
Of summer's warmth and passion

5.
Souls are drawn within, waiting 
Keeping close to home 
Till winter's dying cycle

EROTIC HAIKUS 21

 HAIKU ON LOVE # 1

You leave me after we make love
Moonbeam falls 
A poet shares my sorrow


HAIKU ON LOVE # 2
She coils him
Desolate
Autumn waits

HAIKU ON LOVE # 3
A love bruise
Wicked parrot
Season of rain

HAIKU ON LOVE# 4

His words were diamonds
Wizard of love phrases 
He stole my garments

HAIKU ON LOVE # 5

She offered her warm breasts
To her lover in winter night
Icy wind roared 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 6

Two leaves are tangled
The tree meditates
He does not know our raptures

HAIKU ON LOVE # 7

Words are lost
Glances weak
Glaciered infinity

HAIKU ON LOVE # 8

My neighbour’s wife
Pulls me
To a sobbing counter



HAIKU ON LOVE # 9

Sighs heavy, hidden moon
Moans, pleasures of the night  
Cruel kisses bleed 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 10

She fell on my chest
Stunned 
By the dart of love


HAIKU ON LOVE # 11

Hold on some more and hold on
Until the fire is put out
And he would close his eyes


HAIKU ON LOVE # 12

I would wager
He would leave soon
With a trail of cinnabar

HAIKU ON LOVE # 13

He was a noodle
As her eyes were nearly shut
And bottom of the sea sloshed

HAIKU ON LOVE # 14

I had to hold her like a python
Brute yes I am, I couldn’t lose time
To be ambivalent

HAIKU ON LOVE # 15

His tired legs staggered
He fell again on her bosom
God is so ungracious

HAIKU ON LOVE # 16

Incredible cavern
Big black cat walks on curling passages
In search of snail trail




HAIKU ON LOVE # 17

Last night’s sleep
Washed out 
My lover’s petting 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 18

My husband’s ancient kiss
Fades away
Like charming baubles

HAIKU ON LOVE # 19

A young man hid behind his shadow
At the edge of the river
My bath aroma seeped through his skull

HAIKU ON LOVE # 20

My wife was parabolic
She could not make love
Before her voyage to comet

HAIKU ON LOVE # 21

I can go down her slit
If the river gets more time
To watch my owl

Haiku

 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 HAIKU; MEMORIES AND OBSERVATIONS and EXERCISES


 Archery
 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.

 First

 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Alone

 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.


 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.



 Memory

 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.



 Memory 

 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.



 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.


 Exercise I


 Diagonally
 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.


 Exercise II

 Vociferously,
 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.


 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 Incompatibility.
 He had to learn it.


 All his writing was
 autobiographical.
 He was egocentric.


 SEASONS

 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.


 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 Synch

 Summer. I feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

Reading

I love reading,
reading soothes
my mind, and
take a lot off of
my mind. Reading
is my only weapon to
escape from this crazy
world, without reading, I'd 
go insane, more or less die,
reading gives me something 
to do when Briana isn't
there. When I read,
I see pictures of the story,
and I go in their world.
It's like I'm crazy, and
everyone else is normal, but 
really I'm just like everyone else.
Reading is Exhilarating,
I love reading.
Reading is my friend.
The stories I love most
are mysteries, action,
Suspense, and a little romance.
I am my mom's little
bookworm, and forever I will
Stay. There's nothing more
awesome than
reading on a cold winter 
day, you can also read on a
hot summer day, it doesn't 
matter, you can even read
on a cool autumn day.
You can read anytime, and 
at any place.
I LOVE READING!

Samurai Song, Haiku


delicate blossom
rests in the still gnarled hand
bruised petals weep tears

weary eyes open
tiny cuts, the body bleeds
peace still years away

sun rise breaks the hill
heralds another battle
draw your sword and charge

mother serves white rice
on an almond leaf

Autumnal Beauty

leaves in September 
sensing winter and limbo
shiver and whisper.

the falling leaves drift
of red, gold and brown colors
kissed lips of summer.

discolored of age
grumbling, sighing, and broken
ready for descent.

laying a carpet
rich and rare, soft and stocky
worms ready to slip.

Summer Nights

The longest day comes
Summer nights are soon passing
The moon is rising

I toss in my sleep
Waiting for the turquoise sky 
To turn a dark blue

There is a chill now
Rain, wind, and humidity
Worrying me here

Country drives restore
The Bracken will soon turn brown
I am not ready

I want to sleep soon
But my restlessness is strong
I must find my self

Before the Autumn 
Leaves fall upon on the crowded streets
And my dawn is noon

Father once told me

Father once told me
darkness is absence of light;
spaces void of sight.

Fall is marching near,
stealing the identity
of the oak and pine.

The leaves surrender,
responding to gravity;
strewn like scattered chords -

Individually,
specks of changing emotion
watching from below.

The tremulous night,
suspended in a moon beam;
unshielded, alone.

Hues of green dispel,
replaced with burning orange
and delicate brown.

Aromatically,
summer invokes departure,
fixed in memory.

Fairy Nature

THIS POETRY IS WRITTEN IN 3 HAIKU/2 TANKA FORM, AND NOTES REFER TO SENSES.

I'm fairy nature,
come to collect fall's leaf wares
to help make a coat.


A coat of sunsets,
a last breath of summer's glow
to wrap up autumn.


I disguise myself
living amongst the woodlands,
squirrels, bugs, birds, bees.


Slowly with magic
I single handedly turn
the seasons over;

sweeping winds and driving rains,
giving nature rest till spring.


I nourish the land.
Autumn's blanket becomes crisp,
stark, white, purity,

I contrast, redecorate 
new, sleek, sexy, wavy tones.




AUTHOR NOTES

All 5 senses are expressed within this write, looking at touch, taste, sight, sound and smell.
'make a coat','wrap up' all indicate being touched or enfolded for warmth/protection...as does 
winter's 'blanket'
sounds - could be taken from the animals, and weather...'crisp' evokes sound also. 'rest'-
evokes quieter times...
smell - comes from earthy woodlands and fallen leaves, contrasted with freshness of icy or 
snowy air...
taste - evoked from 'nourish', 'last breath' of Autumn and new breath of winter air.
sight- comes from the autumn colours evoked from the 'sunset' and greens and browns 
of 'woodlands', 'sexy', purity of ice and snow, 'falls leaf wares' - reds, oranges, yellows and 
browns...
