STRUGGLE

                                  Struggle to survive.
                            The world will eat you alive.
                               Bite back or be dinner.

INSIGNIFICANT

                                  Forgotten eyes see
                            The shadows are no longer
                                       Insignificant
______________________________________________________________
WORLDLY WILDERNESS

                                   a concrete playground
                                   Wickedness wilderness
                                breathe, there is no sound

______________________________________________________________

RELEASE

                                  Feed me all my fears
                                  I am too afraid to cry
                                 Release my inner child.

______________________________________________________________

STRENGTH

                                     I make the pain stop
                                    Powerful determination
                                       I will not give up.
______________________________________________________________

DUALITY

                                     The skin of the soul
                                     Masculine or feminine
                                            See duality.

Euphoria

                                       Turning point in life
                                       Eternal satisfaction
                                            Fuel euphoria

You May Not Agree

Oh the cock may crow
but hens deliver the goods...
more to life than sex.

Love and Learn

One learns nothing
till one falls out of love....
rebuilding life

Fingered

Chamber of secrets
Locked in wisps of steel incense
Swabbed sulfur din

Reality Bites

I am a product:
made, packaged, and marketed...
past my use-by date?

Tranquil Waters

Her dark eyes reflect
Tranquil waters beyond dusk
When she does not cry.

Buoyant Power, Seas Of Weak

The small pebble  sinks,
The Huge steel ship floats and sails,
lost and  found in waves.

Meaningless Meaning

We deceive ourselves,
To try to hide from our own
Insignificance.

Say it now!!!

Give me my life back
Satan release your grip—now!
God’s love—can’t touch that!

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Now believe it
Continue to live by it
Let it manifest!

The Essence Remains

sweet pea scent
her dolls still sprawled across room
bed unmade

Wait For Me

Do not leave me now
I am here by your side and...
Heaven will wait dear


Details | Senryu | |

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.

Senior Moment?

How is it that I

Can forget the objective

Before I get there?










Writer's Note:

No, I'm not a senior (not even close) so I don't have any excuse for this dilemma!

Jokers Lament

eyes of deepest blue
lips sweet as maple syrup...
his dog loves him too

Ripe Mango

your presence is:
sweeter than a ripe mango
filling to the soul

Finality

never to speak much
actions have louder voices...
bottled up feelings

smiles never reach eyes
sunshine facade, cheerful masks~
cracks begin to show

heart only takes much
all but ready to explode--
tick tock, bomb goes off

blows to soul, battered
freedom beckons, chains broken--
true smiles: "I'm leaving."

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.

Blind

Fornicated bliss
Devoured, unearthed, blinded
Tomorrow lacks sight

Sleepless Nights

first sunbeams on my infant's face the chair still rocking

A caring One

A caring one is more 
Than sweet fragrance,
Even when sweet fragrance ends,
The caring one remains...

Violinist Composition

I hear the straw hum
stretched chords groan and snag my heart
leaving me composed.

'Grow fainter'

our doubts fade away when our focal point becomes positivity

You Will Feel

be mindful
human rights are human ways
that lead down

be careful
the words above always remain
wear no crown

trap the sin
destroy the lie of conceit
look within

don't consume all that you see
you will feel
wrong like fire
