Small Voices





                                         Standing in Heaven
                                  a small voice calling my name
                                          the image is small
                                     I'm sorry God needed me 
                                    my child who was not born

Dream's Child

Crescent moon in sky my dreams fly on silver wings past blue horizon a nest waiting among trees lush,evergreen rainforest. Distant island's call beyond moonlight sonata baby bird's first flight its growing wings soon cover me,my sleep and new born dreams. © 2011 kash poet ============================

Wild Child

Wild Child
T. C. Boyle -
Told Victor's story.
Lived, aged, died at years forty. 
Teacher and pupil both - failed. 
Child from wild - no wild from child

My child, I cry for thee-a lament

(For my first child, who could not make it to this world) Your motion I feel Oblivious of the pain My son I rejoiced If only you were with me For you I mourn in regret ©Nadiya (11 Feb '15)

in the long rain
carrying the heaviness
of shattered dreams

Tanka For A Child



Sometimes all it takes 

is a snapshot of a child

dripping in blue rain

with ripples of innocence

accompanied by madness.




Just One Tanka

Women and child abuse

We must put an end
To women and child abuse
From our societies
By enforcing stricter laws
And creating awareness

THE TAYLOR HOUSE STORY (tanka sextet)

There's always a house
Some weird    vacant residence
Kids stay away from
Especially on certain nights
Those nights when the Moon is bright

Climbing those porch steps
Would take more than just courage
No child would risk it
It's the Taylor House Story
A tale both true    and GORY!

The house I describe
Has three stories    a long porch
And    boarded windows
Except for one by the top gable
'Death's Door'   so goes the fable

No boards on this one
No glass either    just splinters
Three jagged sabres
It's said    a boy in his teens
Stuck in his head - GUILLOTINED!

Now!    On moonlit nights
Some still hear those awful thumps
The window comes down
THUMP!    His head hits the roof    THUMP!
Rolls on down    hits the ground    THUMP!

Well?    To climb those steps?
It would be insanity
No child would risk it
A vision so full of dread
That thumping    bouncing    DEAD    HEAD!

A Forest Child

Tree seen in forest
Is one of many thousands
Showing its branches
Now to me, a forest child:
One needing Christ's redemption

Haiku, Senryu and Tanka

ocean sounds
I pass a conch
from my ear to hers
 
monsoon dusk
the flood carrying
my shattered dreams


long rain
the homelessness
reopens the school


holding tight
to the hand of my child--
on the iPad
my mother talks and talks
of returning roles

A Balance of Power

When a child was a child
A man was young and strong
As A child was growing well
A man was getting old
And losing living strength

Inner Child

My small inner child 
will keep me from my old age.
It will keep me young, 
my youth held within my heart 
so that time shall stand at rest.

Through the Eyes of a Neglected Child

Through the Eyes of a Neglected Child I cling to mother with unconditional love arms wrapped around tight immune to pain of neglect my bond knows no other way Eyes steadfast in gaze upward turned to mother's face searching for comfort the innocence of my heart sees only this, my mother I see not the truth the hours left unattended many missed feedings imprinted with nature's bond my eyes of a child see love My eyes of a child watch closely for survival matter not the cost nature grants me this lifeline I hold on tight, good or bad.

Madonna and Child

the eternal form
cradles her child
