only purpose to survive
until she cocoons

destiny won't crawl
springs forth in fanciful flight 
angelic rebirth

Haiku 8 - bees and butterflies, ants in action, shimmering pools

searching for food

bathed in the sunshine
shimmering pools of water
pulsating with life

Nature's Erasures

Butterfly soars O’er charred, black, Forest floor …Life returns once more…

Details | Haiku | |

First Date

Ball of butterflies;
knots of anticipation,
tickling me within.

Pick-up at 7;
ready to go around 8.
patiently he waits.

Off to the movies;
holding hands, clumsy and shy,
ever so awkward

Horror flick on screen;
sharing popcorn and candy,
snuggled in close.

Walking home slowly;
lean in;first kiss at the door,
foot popping galore.

Haiku 1 - bees and wasps, butterfly, dancing leaf

jostling in the garden
bees and wasps compete
for the flower's favours

perched on a petal
butterfly uncoils its tube
then injects the flower

a gust of wind
the dried leaf leaps up
and dances in the air

Haiku on Butterfly

falling back-boyhood
from butterfly to larva
the dark blue mourning

Details | Haiku | |


Linger here then
On restless shores;
Support lost causes

Sooner not later
Tides change;
Not always better

Politics like jam
Or peanut butter spread;
No use without bread

Speak softly
Mutter wisely;
Politically correct

Once in a while
Truth entertains fear;
All hell breaks lose

I think of you
All the time;
Retrospective anthem

Listen and learn
My father said;
He's dead, I'm afraid

Loiter and see
My mother said;
She's dead, it's true

Strange voice tone
Less dreary than me;
Out of this time zone

Mr Eliot he said:
"Mermaids don't sing to me;
I wake up and I drown..."

Thinking makes sad
Feeling turns bad;
Know now I am mad

Thinking and feeling,
Doing No-thing;
Enlightenment comes

Look now
Don't stare;
Then you'll see

Chaotic day

Chaos you endured
today must mean billions of
butterflies took flight.

Butterfly Words Haiku Medley

The word butterflies
Flitting past the paper net 
Illusive to me

I open my heart
Showing them my thought flowers
Enticing them in

I catch every one
Feed them from my soul’s nectar
They fly now to you.

Open your heart wide
Give home to my butterflies
My love’s on their wings

Eileen Manassian Ghali

Wild flowers

      a colourful patchwork - 
      butterflies linger

A February month is unseen standing;
Hearts stop to an end
The mirror of an invigorated blot.

Details | Haiku | |


Firm old man
Obstinate ways;
Will and testament

Lawyer consult
Due diligence;
Making a will

Retirement daze
So much to learn;
At my own pace

Human nature
To nurture;
Null and void

Means testing
Between old flames;
Wants and needs clash

Beauty greets
Truth is silent;
Love presides

Calm in chaos,
Stillness moves;
Cause and effect

Mindful knowing
Worldly ways;
No-thing fills void

Go beyond things
To unseen grace;
Herein is home

Learn to "Let Go"
See how you feel;
Embrace blissful rapture

Noise and conflict,
Opposing ideas;
Plunge into storm's eye!

Fatigue funnels
Body battery flat;
Deep sleep recharges

Echoes fade away
Dying day liberates;
Flight of night visions

Heavy eyelids
Boulders crashing;
Rejuvenation begins

There is a gap
In between takes;
Point of pure peace

Words like notes
Musical scales rhyme;
Poetic impulse


Tale for sale
Malt and ale;
Booze never fails

Wine culture
Red and white;
Sensory exfoliation

Small talk;

Rumour has it;
Be happy now


Twilight and luna
Lunatic wiles;
Moon glow magnetic

At the end
Start again;
At the beginning

At the start
End again;
At the ending

Three simple lines
Touch of magic;
Haiku fragment

Good day
Good night

The sun and the moon isolated themselves
As I gaze up, lost.

White wings flapping through the day:
Petals in the breeze.

From "Modern Love And Other Poems"

It's raining! I joy
	The whispers half-mist 
Of the rhythmic motion 
	That has become
So deep with the sound
	Of your name:
My love is coming!
	My life is dying!
