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

Compassion embraces a child eternally
That uplifts a child’s soul in isolation in every way.

The Elephant and the Albatross

She chases her tail
She listens for his breathing
She hears each his lies
She hears each his lies
His false shadow, painted skin
Listen, quiet, still
Blue feathers, hidden
Glory birds, gold and orange
Listen, quiet, still
She hears each his lies
Monkeys running through the trees
Listen, quiet, still
She chases her tail
Drying paint on native skin
 She runs through the green
Hark, the calls of birds
Drying paint on native skin
She chases her tail

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

Haiku 3 - frightened toddler, playful puppy, sniffing dog

wobbly legs misstep
toddler tumbles to the floor
screaming with fright

spinning round and round
trying to catch its tail

dog sniffing the grass
searching for the perfect spot
to have a poop

Beyond Suffering

Breath deeply my child, 
eyes closed my child, you'll soon be
beyond suffering.

Details | Haiku | |


1. You may not know
How the sweet world works outside of you
And how it runs freely

2. You don't know at all
Yet you enjoy it in full
Is that quite so bad?

3. You may not know
Why the Sun beats down upon the Earth
And on your sweet face.

4. You are so very naive
Quick to believe what is told
But is that a flaw?

5. You may be gullible
But your eyes see through the darkness
That blinds most others.

6. Innocent eyes see
What the worldly eyes fail to see here
You have true happiness.

3 Haiku for Jamey

alone, the boy cries
he is no longer loved
because he is gay

the hall is unsafe
punished in the name of god
he hides how he feels

we hear on the news
of a suicide
who was there for him?

Lilies of the universe

Look at them carefully
Look at them as they grow colorful
Look at them as they strive for 
Look at them as they distinguish 
themselves from others
Breathtaking scenery 
Beautifying our lives 
Adding a meaning into our lives Because 
of them we live a purposeful lives  
Bundle of joy is what they are
Like a bunch of roses in special person's 
Like a bouquet on the bribes hand The 
feeling is indescribable

Having one does not stop craving for more 
Having many does not mean you have 
more if you still need more 
Children, let us care for them more and 
Children are the lilies of the universe

Are You Ready Children?

Today I shall choose one of you
A child on whom falls a shadow, wedged in a corner between lines...
A daisy bringing us some suffering from his home
Silent in the middle of a blue turning grey, a button of a rose without anyone in the 
mass of it...
A living being full of secrets, the heart of which spreads light
While the sun continues running into water, the headlights of space fall in front of 
him one after another...
Say so if you have problems!
If you are part of a life full of black points, blended in the night, encircled with 
ruddy colours, show yourselves...
I know that your security guards do not self-protect
In spite of the reins of ice on your ways, in which the identity of humans melt, can 
you determine your destination?
Are you ready children?
Today I shall choose one of you
A child on whom falls a shadow, wedged in a corner between lines...

Haiku, Senryu and Tanka

ocean sounds
I pass a conch
from my ear to hers
monsoon dusk
the flood carrying
my shattered dreams

long rain
the homelessness
reopens the school

holding tight
to the hand of my child--
on the iPad
my mother talks and talks
of returning roles

O sweet baby, so warm and fat
In the womb of nature,
Fight on still, and don’t give up
A life is waiting!
