Enlightenment

Seek Life after life
Illusive task to obtain
Beyond doubts and fall

Start and end  dramas 
Decipher complexities
Found partial answers 

Paradigm issues
Confusion overate quest
Esteem falters wit

Stand mindful actions
Stuck within clearer pathways
A stretch still needed

Persistent conscience
Always craved  enlightenment
Recall life purpose.

Misjudged

Standing still head's up
Retrospect greatest pitfalls 
Mass consciousness whim 

Wandering till dawn
Waiting brave for the result
Less breathe heartless beat

Until the mind soar
Now is  inexplicable
Sufferings indeed

People grim anew
For the best of all Juries
Render canny nod

Continued service
Captivated voter's wit
Last laugh never ends.

Being One

Glitters spread all over
Seeking reflections amidst
becoming steadfast

Long lost better half
Reunite even afar
Sharing out fragments

Standing still staring 
Beyond space and time searching
A spark that mislead

Now after decades
Attracting as one fellow
When moments unfold.

New Year's Eve

Clock tics so smoothly
Whilst celebrants big bang came
Past out new hopes in.

Essence

Rippling sound melting
One's inner being outward
Unite its fragments

CHINA TRAVELOGUE HAIKUS

Dawn comes
On the silk route;
Sun sparkles


Tour trip explores
Vistas of China;
Old and new transits


So much to see:
Lovely landscapes;
Crowded cities morphing


Words in my journal,
Thoughts on my journey;
Miracles and mysteries


Mötley tourist crowd
Eagerly guzzling down
All things China in spring rain


We take our time,
Explore the edges;
Collect instant memories


My darling translates
Classical Chinese tongue:
Basic English field trip!


Beauty in nuances
Cryptic language profound:
Where the Middle Kingdom reigns


Memories on record,
Thought distiller in word motifs;
Celebrate and anchor


Eventful sojourn,
Spring sensations --
Mystic revelations


Just the other day,
My darling said to me:
Take another China trip?

Haikus About God: V

Omniscient guy
Yet he lets bad things happen
How can he exist?

Tomorrow

                             A silver lining
                   Painted on a dull, gray sky
                       By courage and faith.

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Haikus About God: III

Beauty of nature
Why condense it down to God?
Isn’t life enough?

Haikus About God: VI

The body: sacred
We’re all made in God’s image
Hence... circumcision?

Haikus About God: IV

God made all people
But some better than others?

Whip crack of frothing thunder
Is this Africa?

Ocean-ku

Rough, Wild, Dangerous
Sinking the Sailors and Ships
Breaking Hearts alas!

Efflorescence

Blossoming 
Effulgent sun proffers love 
Clambering… 

Ascending
Above the undergrowth…of
Thorns and weeds

Furtively
The moon unravels wonders
Glimmering

Yesterday, Today and Tomorrow

Yesterday, big bites
Time flog the sweat to attempt
Killing lullaby

Today, chased the waves
Sprint lost towards to the sea
Swam and freely dove

Tomorrow, treasures
The time penned another page
Get ready to serve

Beauty of Life

Things feel the same way, 
Life must go on anyway 
Do not die inside!


Details | Haiku | |

Probable Options in Life

Within mundane days
Countless options haunted once
Until best opted

Nothing rise nor fall
Only learning lessons gained
Real experience 

Time and space don't bind
Anything comes in mind's eye
Heights and slopes achieved

Sparks of lights mingled
Consciousness adopts matter
Reality without

Broader perception
Discerned beyond paradox
Life is a pattern.

Haiku 6 - motor cycle, jet aircraft, ocean liner

motorcycle roars
penetrating the quiet night
shattering the silence

aircraft on the runway
jet engines scream before lift off
to the clouds above

on the waterfront
ocean liner calling her flock
- the loud blaring horn

Valentine

1. It's loving

Blossom merrily day
Caption to a beloved reign
And applauding way.

2. It's catchy

Schetchy scatchy love
Not catching on for far long
Just dawn to night love.

3. It's Fun

Powerful grace for peace
And reiterating Romance
Be mine tonight please?

The gusts make me think of you
Storms... it’s just like home.

THE SCARLET NEW YEAR

I found the New Year weak
Laden cumberland and amber
Weeping snow from the spicy sweet shrubs
Beg as if it is a teen to absent spring 
To emerge somewhere with its perfect 
Beauty delight;

But when I sought to it for you,
Ah the New Year grows in front of my eyes 
Like those plum-blossoms from the old garden!



PS: To all my colleagues from Poetry Soup: Have you a great beginning year!

Years from now he can write Dragonflies
In meadows my little boy – who is fall asleep!

Stepping Back

Today I stepped back
Instead of stepping forward
Never mind...Get up!

My Shoulder

My Shoulder

My shoulders
Hold the care of someone else
No warning

Heavy weight
Responsibilities grow
Caregiving

Tasks for two
Now are mine to meddle through
Keep Control

Remember
All appointments and the meds
Important

I can feel
The stress upon my shoulders
It grows now

No easy task
I strain to make the effort
Rewarding

Not easy either
Daily challenges await
Days go by

My love too
Struggles with both walk and talk
Stroke attack

Together
We face all the days ahead
Not I alone

Changed views now
Our tired eyes do see the world
Moving On

Rearranged
And with it much confusion
Sort it out

Love is strong
Any other seems so wrong
Find a way

Yesterday
The days with fun and flare
Are dreams now

My shoulders
Grow strong with all they carry
Tomorrow

Look forward
Work now toward better days
Promising

PLEASANT WORDS

I began to be a reader since
I was in the womb and I thought it was heaven
From which I remained still.

Puzzles

Unscramble knowledge
Rearrange and calculate
Time is against you

MY ode to the Netherlands - Goeie moarn Fresia

radiant sun shines
laurel of meadow sage glows
fragrant flowers rise
across swooning bay
voice settled in the woodland
good morning Fresia
a lullaby flew
In the Morra nightingales
dancing in the trees

What Is Good Enough

Who sets the standard?
Who accepts this? We all do.
What is good enough?

My 'good' is your 'bad'
My best is 'mediocre'.
What is good enough?

What is good enough,
Is your best, your very best.
That is good enough

CHINA HIATUS


(Note: I am going on a journey to Yunnan, China 
from May 18 to 28 -- to explore the wonders there.
My poetry posting will resume when I come back.)
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~


This tour trip
Special iterinary;
Yunnan beckons


Journey into
Mysterious realms;
Places in time


China gateway
Manifold possibilities;
Fragrant surprises


Here we go again,
My sweetheart and I;
Cheer enters sweetly


Spring time
Old China moments;
Modern settings


Lovely momento
Fleeting scenes;
Formal entrance


Wonder awaits
Our wandering;
China expose


As we leave
For the airport;
Thoughts of home


This hiatus
From ordinary days;
So much to pack


Hiatus like escape
Forfeits daily routines;
Holiday diversion toil


Hiatus from posting
No online e-poetry;
Just words on paper


On the road tour
Good writes will come;
Ink stains on parchment


Till then my friends
"Thank you. Be well. God bless."
More poetry 11 days forth!


Silk Air flight
Sunday wee hours;
Off we go then

HAIKUVERSE HARVEST

January juxtapose
More cold now
Beyond hot heat!


Cold cold air
Windy surprise;
Minus heat therapy?


Winding way whirls
Shiver seeding shiver
January jostling juice


Lotus sunbathe --
Muddy pond flavours
Mid-afternoon glare


Misdirected
Whim and fancy;
Windy detours


New year in late January,
Oozing days forfeit;
Scent of the times!


Why do I
Reason with reason;
To justify nothing


Wind chimes 
Breezy orchestra
Sparrow salute


Stillness
Silence sways calmly;
Usher enlightenment?


Haiku
Hokku
How To?


Vivid wonder
In nothing new;
Only fresh eyes


One by one
Images flash by;
Like old friends


Memory swirls
Round and round;
Circles to devour!


My darling dearest
Sleep-talking again;
Smiles pay tokens


So many curves:
Drop-dead gorgeous;
No time to sip!


Deep deep dark
Catch curvy craze
Sense stillness shout



No need for nice,
Just pay the price;
Indulge sheer surprise!


Here by
Lovely, lonely shore
No one but me!


New expressway
Halting jam frustration;
Missing clear detour!


When I speak
Words do not come;
Silence stays


Happiness:
Fleeting dry ice,
Carbon dioxide complex


Sublime
Subdued
Sensations


Glow in your eyes
Hint of sexy ideas --
Measured in your smile!


Love looks lovely
Rain running rowdy
Sheer shifting sights


Splendour courts,
Grandeur tiptoes ,
Silence succumbs


Igloo atmosphere
Air-con ice cold
Shivering skin tones


Tales awaiting
Weary bones;
Fireside conversations


Nature nurtures
Quaint restraint;
Silence raptures haiku


Sanguine rapture,
Observe the scenario;
Can you see now?


Pulse of new morning
Glow in your eyes;
Heart to heart


Moon glow
Aqua aura
Familiar wink


Somnolence
Scattering sensations
Swift spread sweetening


Slow morning edging
Indulgent
Indulgence


Wake-up call
Early morning darkness
Drowsy in dim light


Fumbling footsteps
Pre-dawn precursor
Tentative waiting

Drowsy
Dreamy
Discovery


Oil painting self-talk
Kostabi's  imagery
Passageway decor


Mind the view
Pending rapture
In-transit here


Feelings surge
Raw word fumbling
Echoes in reprieve


Listen
The wind calls
Whispers your name


Look to your self
As best you can;
Then understand


When and where
And how and why
Say who and what


Frozen time
Thaws to water
Down the drain


Time equals life
Oozing away
Does it matter?


Love plays
A game;
Only fools smile gleefully!

HAIKU GLIMPSES

Sand castles
Seashore artifacts;
Seagulls for company


Morning fitness run
Winding jogging track;
Pulse of adrenaline


Salty sea breeze
Coconut palms sway;
Stray voices unfurl


Flower carpet
Yellow and red hues;
Jogging track surprise


Seaside horizon
Sun and sand and mist;
Nature makes pictures


Piquant conversations
Seafront gathering;
Message in skyline

HAIKU DAZZLE 2


Saturday tour
Fine arts exhibits;
Innovative textures


Meeting here
With art and buffet;
Small talk punctuates


Look deeply now
So much passion;
Well-endowed


Faces in the crowd
I seek you;
Finder's keepers


Now I can see
Your beauty smile;
My heart swells


Surge of rush
Adrenaline flood;
Fight or flight


Listen now
My lover speaks;
Heart to heart


I grow old
Older than time;
Ageless spirit


From booth to booth
We explore beauty;
Facets of delight


Small talk,
Chit-chat waters;
Big deal in small things
