Summer Memories


summer memories

evening walks along the sand

sound of waves crashing

moonlight upon the water

we stop long enough to kiss...

a dog's good-bye

paws on his casket
he drops a white rose
onto his friend
  a soldier come home
  his final badge of honor

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)

Ye Stay On Track

As the earth swings back
Brothers I say stay on track
Follow Master’s Plan
Sisters don’t let man change you
For they all should worship you

Swinging on a Star

“William Shakespeare”
Brilliance illuminates 
Heaven’s brightest star
Unclouded wit still sparkling
Words twinkling from lovers’ tongues

Tanka at the sportsmens bar

coloured bottles bob
to my eyes these are gemstones
light explodes in spumes
a sour flood warms my belly
in the wave of each fresh draught

drinking rainbows	
I am resting the dragon 
on wet glass
ice rocks crackle
day blends into night

first or last dog watch?
sitting at this bar – my pew
far away at sea
ship ahoy! Nubile sirens
eight bells ringing between decks



Inspired by the adventures of Keith Jackson AM and other friends

Monk's Tribute (Tanka)

Thelonious Monk
piano keyboard prophet
harmonizing scales

Melody from flat to sharp
rhythm soothing to the soul


Comments:  Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917-1982) is recognized as one of the 
most influential figures in the history of Jazz. He was one of the architects of 
bebop and his impact as a composer and pianist has had a profound influence 
on every genre of music. Thelonious Monk Institutes of Jazz are located at the 
following locations: Washington Office: 5225 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Suite 605, 
Washington, DC and Los Angeles Office: University of Southern California, 3443 
Watt Way, Lower Level, Los Angeles, CA. The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, a 
nonprofit education organization, was founded in 1986 by the Monk family along 
with the late Maria Fisher, an opera singer and lifelong devotee of music.

Bloody Mary

Eight hundred meters
Demanding in all aspects
Race with a high toll
Epitome of extremes
Coach called her Bloody Mary

Who am I if not

Who am I if not,
Greeting sunsets with a smile
Dazed by the night sky
Making dreamlike plans for life,
Who am I if not with you

A trib to the realest dreamer

Walking the straight line
Hellbound, gunning for heaven
Military mind
By shadows can't be worried
Else your dreams will be buried
