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

No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.

United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

Strong Tears

Because tears are meant
To be a symbol of strength
Even in hard days.

Details | Haiku | |


Discolored meadow
overtaken by swollen clouds,
comfort the wild tree...

Are there blue mountains
beyond the unfrequented prairie?
Find the horizon...

No cowboys on horses; 
no coffee brewing on logs,
while they are singing...

Late Fall scenery,
not yet conquered by deep snow,
make this day dazzle...

Hungry spiders crawl
with a despised, changeless pace;
the coyotes howl... 

Frightened by those sounds,
I feed more logs to the fire,
to shun strange vibes...

Seeing that sun blaze 
over the landscape's stillness,
I begin to dream...

Haikus to Iran

In Iran they march
"Where" they ask "is my vote gone?"
Answered by truncheon

God, Allah, they call
In His name, holy, oppress
Gods weakest children

Other news shall show

But we wont forget

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

amber disappears...

porcelain meanings...

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.

- Truth
Remember the truth,
Question those in government…
In full glory reflected.

- Mistake
To war is error,
To offer peace is sublime…
Bombs bursting in air.

- Belief
No matter how hard,
Stand up for what you believe…
O! say can you see.

- Responsibility
I love my country,
Like baseball and apple pie…
The home of the brave.

Children make Life

Little cute buds
Playing, sitting, eating & sleeping
Children make life

Smiles to tears
They show all emotion in life
Children make life

Growing little everyday
They crawl, walk run to embrace world
Children make life

Innocent at heart
Simple joys they cherish live every moment
Children make life

Dear to every heart
They conquer anger with a sheepy smiles
Children make life

Learning and mimicking
They catch every world and act you do
Children make life

Source of joy
They bound the bonds of humanity 
Children make life

Daughters are blessing
Bringin prosperity to fathers and society
Children make life

Sons are strength
Mothers see their pride in them
Children make life

Son or daughter 
Let the joy bloom in every garden
Children make life

there are those that need
structure even in their art
personally not

for me, I'll write it
however it comes to me
sorry if it don't fit

in your poetry 
mold, keeps me from growing old
you wouldn't want that

so write your tight 'lil
lines and I will still write mine
hopefully we can

share some dreams and things
and for each of us it will
still be very real

I saw an angel
flying up high
freedom and purity soars

I caught it
clipped its wings
and asked it to be my friend

But dear angel
cried to heaven,
"now I will bleed for sure"

wild passion caresses
sweet passion burlesques
dear angel exists no more

A gift that is forever
Till eternity

Rings outward to many too
Delivering hope beyond

Cold, Flexible Steel

A serial of haikus, all addressing the same topic with 
a hint of humor; but advice that could save your life
or that of a loved one.  New to PoetrySoup, so I hope 
I'm not "out of order" with this submission or topic. 

Cold, flexible steel
Probing my dignity...

This “simple” exam
“…could prevent cancer.” they say.

We all have to die,
But not from colon cancer.

There's a downside tho’.
“Yuk! That, nasty brown liquid.”

“But boy, does it work...
Work and work and work some more. 

Baring your buttocks...
In a fetal position;
Then the lights go out. 

“No polyps", they say.
There are no malignancies.

Your colon’s okay.
It’s five years until your next...

Want some peace of mind?
Insurance may pay for it.

One “simple” exam
Can provide that peace of mind.

You might save your life.
Over 45?  Do it!

Cold, flexible steel.
On the other hand, what if…
Something else kills you?

Lone Feather

A circular path
Among the wood tells a tale
Of a lone feather

As plain as the day,
But new as another morn.
You were visited...

As the eyes of God
Flew about in search of you
To show Himself strong,

They lit in the road.
Transformed into day angels,
They fluttered away.

A feather was found
By a friend to let you know
His Spirit was there.

HAIKU TRAIL :(Inconsistent with environment)


It is hard and bleak
now, below his tired feet
with the grey above him,

albescent with time
clouds bubble above him there
like an old man’s  beard,

though you, his sweet one
are the soft green in between,
bring back salad  days,

when you address him
you greet him with such relish
to flavour his life

and so he holds on -
ever in mind  as at hand,
leaning on the wind.

Skylark spread your wings
Pull yourself up from the ground
Trust in the currents

One foot can lift you
Out to meet the starry night
Release yourself soon

Energy is faint
Yet the heart beats with power
We can not lift you

Find the quickening
Chance to take your maiden flight
You will remember

Flying is in you
You have been at rest so  long
Take this one last flight

We will all watch you
Cheering through our tears and fears
Imprinting the sight

Sooner than we think
We will have to take our flights
Risking the journey

Waving our hands high
Reaching for the clouds above
Hoping for entry

Greeters are waiting
With open arms and smiling
Relief on their end

The world is troubled
Peace must live somewhere we hope
You are needed there

We all must let go 
If we hold you too closely
You'll not make your flight

Skylark sing your song
The melody resonates
Through the summer air

Waterfall gushing
on moss-covered rocks, breaking
up a bluish shine;
tree dangling from wet boulder
crushes the ginger,
to deplete it of its light...
Waterfall playing
a scherzo, ever grant me

Spirit Guide Calls

Will you heed the song 
that mingles in with the wind 
Your spirit guide calls 

It knows your heart well 
and sings to blend with your soul 
Turn and face the wind 

Cast your arms out wide 
Feel the caress on your skin 
The tug at your clothes 

Close your eyes and breathe 
Your blood rushes with the wind 
Wildness fills you 

You can taste it now 
Mountains, oceans, verdant fields 
It is all earth 

Now comes the sweet calm 
You are tuned with nature 
You have arrived

And no one want to offend
Who should this I send?

Suffer day and night.

All our foreign policy
Will not set us free.

Coming home

-  Train Whistle
Leaves are on the ground,
A North wind is picking up...
The train-whistle blows.

-  Reality
Is it for the dead?
How long do we have to stay...
Cold reality.

-  Hopeful
Hope springs eternal,
New ideas and new leaders...
Not much of a choice.

-  Tragedy
They are coming home,
Why do we keep forgetting...
What a tragedy.

Orange Slice

My eyes see tonight
Moon looks like an orange slice
Dropped into the skies

Moon drops acid tears
Skin and lips turning, turning
to sweet orange bliss

Burning eyes turn red
Tears turn from acid to salt
Turning sight to blind

Skin stained orange hue
A taste of sweet hate thereof
And of sour love

My eyes see tonight
Moon looks like an orange slice
Dropped into the skies

in which the paper crane flies,
bathed in vernal dew.

A   zaleas now bloom

pressed gently at side.

... sultry pleasures deep

            mistress jealously I keep

                       sweet oblivion, Sleep ...

Cosmic tilt of head
hums in arched back  - opens eyes
of cupped palm's heaven.

Awaken fron the sleep
rain showers began to fall
flowers dancein the sun.

Mother Nature

She spills her fragrance
When showing her elegance;
Seeker's contentment!

Pastel Bells

Hollow paper bells
strung like pastel snap dragons~
clicking in the sun...

The Sky Is Ready

The sky is ready...
Embracing unknown spirits
I smell my pillow

Take Me

Dusky night in which
I contemplate thy beauty,
Take me into thee…

Perfection in a Weed

Thistle, growing weak
I wish to see what makes you,
Dance with perfection.

Parched Skin

Raindrops seep into
My parched skin quenching the thirst,
For that hydration.

Red orb glows softly
Rise and fall into water
White orb glows softly

Watching the grass grow
The earth moving underneath
Day in and day out
