Night-Day

night creeps steadily
adorned in dark velvet cape…
watching as men sleep

crickets sound their shrill
bullfrogs play tuba and base…
shooting stars display

day rolls in bright-bold
night in surrender recedes…
rays of gold invade

Juxtaposition of Me and the Willow Tree

When the Stream Stops Flowing

Lucid Dreams

It's 2 a.m. and for the life of me
I can’t sleep. Perhaps too many iced green
Teas. It doesn’t bother me you see
Not getting rest I mean, it’s the caffeine
That keeps me awake and I miss dreaming
Dreams that I turn into reality.
Those pleasant visions become the real thing:
A contrived visual modality.

Awake I’m between
A paradoxical dream
And veracity

In this state I know who I really am
Because I am the creator of them.
A fluid existence into this realm
Where all I dream is at my command.

The rules of conduct
Are for myself to decide
I’m the one in charge

Experiment with my thoughts and beliefs
with elaborated dream-scape motifs.

Like the Morning Glory at Noon

          The morning glory,
Like her heart, opens for love.

The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote,

     The Fox:

1.  the blare of the horn
     snooty hooves of  fire red coats...
     panting for my life

2.  briar rabbit ears
     twisting in my angry grip...
     more tall tales are told

3.  a hen in my mouth
     a farmer without his gun...
     life can be so good

     The Wolf:

1.  silver sinews coil
     full moon permits me to speak...
     shivers for all men

2.  my proud bloody coat
     clings to young Navaho skin...
     tales of my demise

3.  the grind of tractors
     growl grief to my amber eyes...
     leave my land alone

     The Coyote:

1.  mangy vermin shriek
     pelts darken with scarlet smear...
     ranchers open fire

2.  mere morsels to munch
     lupine snap shears of warning...
     always last in line

3.  roy rodgers singing
     cactus cattle and trail dust...
     my chorus off key

Bavaria. The edge of the Black Forest . Midnight. A Creature Named Adam.

pursuing a perverse mate...
lightning my mother

Haiti.  A fallow field off a dirt crossroads. Sunset. The Gris Gris Man.

fearful fugue for Godless souls...

Dead relatives live

Tears from the past dry
Years of mourning and pining

Failed attempts are successes
Rejections acceptances

Then I walk back through the doorway
 Ready to accept reality

The Top

The tiniest tap
Within this vicious circle
Quickly amplifies


And so it begins
Spinning out of proportion
Stopping at nothing


Playing with passion
Lawless, careless, beautiful
Teasing misery


While our lives are swift
The top may move at light's speed
Faster and faster


The force of hatred
Cannot strip it of its glee
Centrifugal joy!


Gravity is weak
Easily disregarded
So much space to dream!


The mighty Neptune
It fervorously dances,
Tangos in the light


The theatric top
Likened to the universe
Spinning endlessly...

Of two, your uncle doesn't like either

 
By his attitudes
your uncle resembles
a machine with laughs in brightness! 
With some difficulty
most people stop themselves
from laughing.
Besides, are they are in a state
to laugh -
poor people?
Their problems exceed their means,
high costs exclude...
their children are untenable.
Their waiting
lags behind
the century. 
Finding
nothing else in place
he grabs passers-by
by the nose...
a gag in one hand,
a carrot and an onion
in the other.
As a matter of fact...
what does he want,
your uncle?

Unseens reunited
Mystical midnight matters
Moment of learning

Looking outwardly
Missing for someone who left
Drowned while hold last breathe

Night full of wonders 
Touched our enourmous feelings
Shown us the best way

So lucky are we
Midnight wind blowing so cold
Wonderful moment

Were alone but free
Distance defy our senses
Momentary creed

How pleasant to hear
The whisper of waves beside
Refreshing our wit

Here we are tonight
Feel the ocean breeze awake
Discernment took place

Lost and weary soul
Waiting to be  enlightened
Grateful while glaring

Winter Moments

Soft, the powdery feet
Scamper now along the street
Blanketed in sleet

White socked windy feet
Stretched under winter's soft sheet
Of ice thin deceit

Soft now the winds bleat
And stagger through the cold wheat
All footprints delete

Sucking the clouds teat
The pastured winds softly bleat
Winter's flock is sleet

Bright sun has no heat
To melt winter's powdered feet
Or gnaw the snow's sheet.

A Simple Rhyme

Out with the old
And into the new

Coming from black
And turning it blue

Getting through hate
Giving it with love

Coming up from hell
Going to heaven above

Your arms are closed
The wings spread wide

Telling the truth
Turning them to lies

Going from rich
Ending in poor

Never say less
Forever is more

Going from dark
Stepping into the light

What is done wrong
Must make it right

From the brightest day
To the darkest night

Losing a battle
Winning a fight

humans are weak
God is might

coming from sight
going blind

what is yours
is now mine

us wanting 
is to have

dont be sad
just be glad

do smile
please dont frown

going from deaf
hearing those sounds

what was white 
is now black

this is this 
that was that

walking tall
feeling small

maybe weak
but its strong

feeling regret
praying for hope

listen to the do's
never the don'ts

please be quiet
don't make a sound

i hate the city
but love the town

i once was born
and soon i'll die

this is what i call
a simple rhyme

If winter landscape

If sunlight was green 
Shining on crimson nature 
It would still be hot. 

If rain was yellow 
Running like horse piss in streets 
It would still be wet.

Confusion Beyond The Door

"I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination."

I turn to the door.
Do I leave reality?
Tell me, who am I?

If I go back will I ever be able to return to this place I now call "MyLand?"
I've stalled for too long but it doesn't feel right.
I'm leaving my friends behind, but...they never cared about me!
All they did was use me!
And what happened when I wasn't good enough anymore?- they abandoned me, left me out in the blazing heat to die.
Good-bye reality, it's my imagination's turn now.

Just one little step.
What's this beating in my chest?
I won't regret it!
One step is all it will take.
Please God, make the door vanish!

NATURE'S LIVELINESS


       White to bluish skies
Lively glows: trees and buds
       Picture of vibrancy

       Fresh, clean waters
 Fishes swimming alive, see!
          Ripples of life

       Cool gust of breeze
 Blowing rustling earthly life
        A wane of touch

     Fruits and each youth
     Productivity emblems
        Nurture's effect

       Chirping of birds
Twitting, singing on the tree
       Nature's melody

Heartthrob

 “I open the door and cross the threshold of imagination”

                     A Rambling Poet




One path finds the door
Traveled only from the heart
Through the eyes to life

Hovering about
Dragonflies of all colors
Dancing with sunshine

A mystery world
Sparkling glass dimpled with life
Guarded by cattails

Nervous chatters above behold
A strange sense of company
I watch a miracle unfold
From behind a red oak tree

I hold my breath, don’t make a sound
Slowly peeking bit by bit
Tugging, jumping and playing around
Four unaware fox kits

The wind became my enemy
My scent from it they stole
No hesitation, instantly
They scampered down their hole

Astonished, I ponder what a rare sight I had just witnessed.
The tranquility of being surrounded by huge trees envelops me as I walk around the pond’s edge. 
Led by a bullfrog’s ballad, I hone in on its stage location.
Startled, the frog leaps into its safe haven and disappears into thick vegetation.
The setting sun glimmers in the wake of the bullfrog, as does my reflection.
I watch until the water’s surface is smooth again.
A rustling in the brush directs my attention to a doe and her fawn wandering in search of a tender morsel.
The long shadows of dusk begin a tale of nocturnal beauty, a revelry to the nightlife to dance with a miracle world.
Content, I find myself back at the threshold of my heart.
Leaving the world that will some day surround me, a horn blaring taxi barely misses me.

' THE NYMPH IN THE WORLD OF HUMANS '


In the midst of woods A cryptic houri's crooning Euphony - suffused. Nocturnal deity humming her lyrical milieu Yarn of Utopian hymn of nostalgia Missing her sublime empyrean realm, now ... Place seems so eccentric ... strange ensued in just a flash How mind's eye brought this door to reach " LIMITLESS " Facing the Ingress of CHANGE Goddess of melody stepped and witnessed the other world behind the realm A cyan orb with burning effulgent daystar - mirrored, reflected Drawing up the facsimile of lustrous sparks of luminescence Planet surrounded by towering trees oscillating Dancing together with the blithesome rhythmic gust of cool breeze Nymphalid gliding, vagabonding with grace and elegance Bragging its chromatic stunning ala above the turfs embracing the land Rocks, pebbles, grass, insects and animals in harmony Clouds, birds, skies, heaven and earth in equilibrium Like music - heavenly, perfect, profound, and heartfelt Factual sanctuary - undisturbed habitat of existence Home of soothing silence - obscure, raw ... Goddess now a HUMAN Mortal - in time, will cease and die. . . ========================================== Haiku Acrostic Free Verse july 30,2011

DON'T FORGET

Even if I've lost you
To those mirrors
You'll always be
There before my very eyes
Perhaps I can no longer
Hold your hands
Perhaps I can no longer
Conceal your nudity
In white cotton twills
You'll be arrested
By those very evenings
where and when you'll see
It's all stopped, just like that 
Before your windowpanes, disappearing
Read my name in the reflections of light
Don't you forget it 
You'll be arrested by those very evenings
Don't you forget it

FRIEND, YOU'RE NOT THE GUILTY ONE

Friend, you’re not the guilty one
The guilty ones are the evenings
See how they drag you down into this obscurity...
Trouble not yourself
Everyday’s "Love’s Labour Lost"
Vanishes away
Your eyes have learned
The meaning of love anyway
Learn how not to remember
Every point of suffering. 

Remember not those eyes, those eyes
Have gone and they’ve enticed you into smoky cafés
Don’t go and believe 
your eyes, they're just not
as sharp as they used to be
Friend, because you aren’t the guilty one,
The guilty ones are hopes
Leaving you to the shadows. 

So what’s the use of fussing
If they’ve never understood
The poems your own baggy eyes
Have forgotten? ... 

You’re alone in an unknown beyond
Your eyes are alone as well ...
You’re not guilty, friend
The guilty ones are hopes
Leaving you alone in darkness.

Disdainful Haiku

Raped by Confusion
No one has a clue about
My lame, weird haiku  

Disdain is like rain,
Dripping continuely...yet
I ponder...wander

I think about you
And how treated me so
You're as sweet as pie

Something is missing
Oh! Something drives me insane...
Disdainful haiku

Why are unclear?
You're like a Positive Sheep
But, in wolve's clothing

Something smells fishy
Is it your odor or what?
Your attitude stinks

I think about you 
You've treated me badly...how
Dare you...oh you jerk!!

Drain away your tears
Don't bottle it up inside
Angst pierces my soul

Disdainful haiku -
Why are you so cruel to me?
Never stop trying (poets)!!!

As my heart beats with fervor
For my noble knight...

For a day passes
Slowly until the night comes,
Yielding him to me.

Wolfman falls in love

The wolfman is cute
he wears a sexy perfume
all for his damsel

he no longer fumes
he just keeps swooning all day
he craves his damsel

he scares no longer
chases not the little ones
but he buys flowers

his cheeks are blushing
crimson red is the colour
when the damsel dance

she is so pretty
she is the queen of the night
with long black hair locks

each time she dances
the wolfman's heart beats loud
he wishes a kiss

the wolfman is dull
all day his head is in clouds
whole town hears him sign

we want to help him
we introduce him to her
but the lover ran

Eden

Bud of a flower,
open, reveal thy beauty,
and color our eyes.

I cannot picture,
this earth without your presence,
you are needed in life.

Your plant family,
400,000 species,
grass, daisy, orchid, are some.

Remnants of you, see,
your kingdom trace back to a,
Jurassic era.

now embrace sunshine,
attract guests with your color,
that they might find you.

Both male and female,
with pistils and stamens,
boundaries are broken.

-For atop your stem,
reproductive organs dwell,
encased in petals.

Pollination needs,
help, ask the bees to carry,
pollen to stigma.

Help is rewarded,
Nectar, a sugar-based sweet,
a feast you must seek.

Please walk gentle,
for some have intentions that,
are carnivorous.

Water, sun, soil, air,
and carbon dioxide bear,
Photosynthesis.

The process makes food,
chlorophyll provides color,
and ends the cycle.

Germination is,
the start of growth, for seeds to,
emerge from the earth.

The roots push down and,
anchor the seed into soil,
as the stem rises.

When petal, pollen,
leaf and stem dance in the wind,
life begins again.

youth
play while growing up
play when living toward your dreams
play when you are old

drowning
the trick of swimming
is to know when to stroke it
and when to float it

snuff
when terminating 
some life, plant or animal,
rejoice its being

lessen
serenity prayer
reminds there's little control
you're human, ok?

past 
ancestors taught you
everything they knew 'til then
they could do no more

present
did you hear of the
golden rule when you were young?
remember it now

future
children need guidance
look to past and present to
help guide them forward

policy
rules are made to be
followed from experience,
but always questioned

visions
both dark and light views
show beauty and/or wisdom
to enrich our lives

song
it's better to sing
on key and pitch, but any voice
is better than none

...lastly
a five seven five
rule of writing light verse makes
things interesting

Group of 26 various haikus

Night time yet again /starlight swallowed by black-hoes /Never to reach earth 

Monster under bed /Darkness engulfing my heart /Flashlight in closet 

Broken down body /Pieces still falling apart /Trying to survive 

Needed violence /Craving others' destruction /A bloody green-world 

Another world waits /To be drastically changed  /For better or for worst 

Take away my soul /A Genni in a bottle /Waiting for my hell 

Follow me right now /into the heart of her dream /To understand pain

What is my purpose /If no one recognizes /Who I truly am 

Where do I go from /A path lost in time and space /Path through destruction 

Do you give a damn /That people fall through the cracks /Life and sanity 

Where is your passion? /To afraid to make a change /Life requires life 

Wish upon a star /It falls from the black heavens /Death for a lost soul

Power to control /How the world spins around us /Orbiting people

Future behind us /Broken possibilities /Wondering what if

what inspires dreams / To quickly flee from our minds / Do they shape the soul? 

Do you know yourself? / Understand your heart and soul / Or did you give up?

My wondering thoughts/ foot steps past our minds limits/ into a new world 

Waiting for time's change / scared of what I will find there /What will be taken? 

Looking for details/ What secrets will they reveal?/ Our humanity 

He gave memories/ Remembering as her own/ Truth lost inside time 

Questions Propagate / What's inside Pandora's box / All of his secrets

Apple falls from tree / Down the rabbit hole it rolls / Mad Hater picks up 

Depression soaks in / Into my thoughts and body / Draining who I am

Stress stretches my soul / Rubber band about to break / Crashing into life 

Life flipped upside down/ World falling into pieces/ Some forever lost

How many lost dreams/ Are never fulfilled in life/ That could of been real? 

Where do I go now?/ Options retreating from me/ Left with destruction

Can't be healed,
Created by my best friend,
Can't heal this shattered torn heart, 
Can't put it back together.

Why can't you see Caleb, I
need you to be here for me,
Please stop this shattering
In my heart?

Please heal these wounds,
Heal this heart,
Make it pump blood,
Again, make it perfect.

Shattered heart,
I'm gone forever,
Six feet under is 
Where my body remains. I was buried alive.

Shaping Tomorrows

They are sinking
In the multiplication tables
While growing older
In a lack of emotional resources...
The differences
Are unnoticeable
In mirrors...
These
They are nailed
To loneliness.
The seasons
Are unnoticeable in their hearts...
The years
Rotting
In their eyes
To them...
The revolution
Is not the result
Of the last few minutes
In their alphabet
There is a path
To curses.

Fusion

In the sizzling heat
She wears new a furry mink
The sly little fox

Now its brimming cold
He dared bare himself of skin
The wily serpent

And what racket here
The cricket makes through the night
The bats cannot hear.

The rain is singing
The roof plays her pop songs sweet
Clouds dance on the street

A little black boy
Playing upon the blind rock
A trope for lost joy

Naked on the sand
No season tells tropic time
The sun milks the hand.

The eye milks the sun
For gold leaves waiting to fall
No fruits on bare limbs.

Waiting on a rose
For beauty to come to life

Rose, oh gentle rose
I wait for thee through seasons
Can you fill my heart?

Let the light open your soul

Though lilies blossom
Pansies also awaken
I will wait for you

Heart of purest gold
Voice that is long awaited
Yes, I will remain

We duel and laugh

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...

MEDITATING ANOTHER SEASON

Wind storm, be gentle
when passing over this field...
leave some edible!  


Rains are coming,
to make the scenery misty...
some tough birds will stay! 


O life-giving sun,
with your brilliance adorn...
this surly landscape!     


Seasons have four phases,
time let me choose the quietest...
the one full of roses!

    
No visions of gloom,
delight changes the saddest mood...
serenity reigns!


Swanky dogwood sway,
stoop down and tackle my feet...
to keep me from sleep!
