The New Year

welcome to the nightmare
365 days of triskaidekaphobia
where will you hide

The world didn't end in 2012, so now we have to deal with the number 13 all year long.  I wrote this poem with that in mind.  Of course, my tongue was firmly planted in my cheek.

Maple Donuts

Those maple donuts
Surely will by my ruin.
Lack of self control.

that poor, painful cry
“i’ve fallen and can’t get up!”
hope god will hear you

this is my sickness –
i want to sleep all the time
my kitty don’t mind

i will surely die
forgot to take prescriptions
it’s part of old age

the house is a mess
my wife saves everything
blames it on the cat

oh, dear lord, now what?
there is a crack house next door
change locks      seal windows

a car just went by
music so loud it shook the house
scared old puss in boots
mortuary called
bargain price on caskets
it WAS a fine day

i can’t control gas
nor the water works either
monthly bill sky high

An unbidden thought, startling

Thus tear met finger

As you get older,
Deny the reality
That everything sags!

Butterfly Secrets

Butterflies whisper
The secrets to peaceful life,
But our cars crush them.

Details | Senryu | |



in those painful days,
years past a male’s vanity,
comes a change of ways –

the youthful waistline
expanded, heaving chest dumped,
all shape in decline –

he opts for comfort
no matter an extra X
give him belt-less sport,

the college letter
on sweatshirt, head and jacket
the paunch unfettered

shirt, pants, wrinkle free
his shoes longer and wider
comfort, don’t you see

well, he’s right in line
with today’s runaway youth
and looking quite fine

his wife, however,
scanning the wreck with cold eyes
has cried, “forever!

till death us do part!
the sight of you is lethal
and that’s a good start!”

A Secret Love Message

the Moon in the clouds
the Sun deep down the ocean
Earth's message to Mars.

* The poem is based on an event when Earth and Mars were at the nearest distance, a 
sort of rendevous  on August 27, 2003.*

how to slow down time as senryu

How to Slow Down Time
As Senryu   

It pays to be lazy 
Time lasts so much longer 
When doing nothing 

Waiting for a train 
Look at your wristwatch often 
It never arrives 

Get up at nine 
Read boring stuff on Facebook 
Five past eight…only!

Senryu -- absent-mindedness

Basking in Life

1.  I am a poetry book. My title is "Basking in Life." 

2.  This book contains many chapters dealing with those things  in which I bask, meaning, the things that brighten my life. This book includes my reflection  on life and love, recollections of happy times, humorous things, my family, pets and grandkids.

3.  My favorite poem in my Poetry Book is the Intro poem. It's in senryu form and it reads as follows:

lying on a beach
basking, my pages exposed . . . 
brightly singing poems
