Night

Weep shadows of gloam, drip deep your leeching darkness Bring us now the night Settles in the hush Silent anticipation of the velvet cloak Revel in freedom as the stars guide our inward imagination Dreams and ancient fears rise like glowing unseen eyes which draw on our souls For we are creatures attuned to the moon's sweet call and so we answer With each breath we take we feed our fantasy's need with twilight's own musk

Her life absconded by gun,
Soul departed earth.

Free Falling

by Michael J Falotico

                                                        Cries in the dark swim..
                                                      Asleep in a world not real..
                                                         Feet running in place..

                                                         Steps taken in haste..
                                                The edge not seen but still touched..
                                                       Free falling from dreams ..

Summer Senryu

Cicadas' songs in still heat
  evoke the ghosts 
    of childhood

           Bring to birth nostalgic thoughts
           times far removed

A simpler life
  child's eye view
    all mysteries accepted

            Each day a calm
            perfection

Which grew into itself, then
  vanished
    into its nightfall

             The self I then was wandered,
              stumbling towards adulthood

And even now still haunts me
  when cicadas sing
    and children laugh

               Somewhere in the hazy heat
               Somewhere in the white distance

Pulled the Trigger

Bullet wounds
The criminal shoots down his
First targets

How dare you
Shoot them uncontrollably
CHAOS grows .  .  .

Don’t shoot it!
The victims are running mad
And you pulled

The trigger
I’m terrified of your strength
DROP IT, man ! ! !

                                       day's gems are not stars 

                                        reflects twinkling light
                                   at night not with the sun light 
                                        stars in the dark space

                                       have their own meaning
                                      without missing own value

Eyes Playing Tricks (Senryu Trilogy)

On my bedroom door at night
Became a crawler.

Up and down the hall peeking,
The lightning man ran.

Hideous tree men...
Shadows like bad guys reaching...
Monsters imagined.

White glitter in synapse strings
