a church clock
shows the midnight hour - -
graves open

death plays 
a tune on his fiddle - -
skeletons dance 

kings and peasants
hold hands and dance in circles - -
a cock waits

Haiku 4 - flowering weed, dancing leaf, life force

then settles to the ground

in the crack in the concrete

unstoppable life force

Haiku 1 - bees and wasps, butterfly, dancing leaf

jostling in the garden

then injects the flower

and dances in the air

Prisms on the Shore

a prism dance floor -
starlight-speckled grains of sand   
under comet sky

glistening ocean -
billowy waves dance freely
engulfing prisms

surging waves seek land -
prisms waltz on the shoreline
in the moonlit tide

Baring of your soul
Dancing naked for the world
Deep tension is eased

Just a note of thanks to all who are encouraging my work and reading my poetry.
I so appreciate all of you.  Poetry Soup has become a bright spot in my life. :)

AAre U Sure Them Is Real Camels Admiral

        al-Quaddafi Haiku-2
Tomahawks fly blind
may be al-Quaidas delight
Allah Ahkbar's cheer.

Here we go again
Belly dancing with Muammar
Hillarie can't dance.

He can dance alone.
al-Quaddafi's naval glows
diamonds up his nose.

Are they Libyan?
Maybe some, we just don't know.
Give them rice and lamb.

Send more Tomahawks
Reroute them to Syria
Belly dancing Booms.

Let's take on them all
every oil field we find
NATO gas stations

Big Chief Tomahawks
Geronimo's great revenge
Belly dance all night.

Gold in them thar hills
Black gold in the desert sand.
Someone's slight of hand.

Twenty thousand more
Suckers born every minute.
In the USA.

      Forwardddd!!! Huh?!

Drumming Colours

Early rising
Sparkling skies;
Sublime moment

Dearest and I
Get ready;
Tour group assemble

Tour coach speeding
Jerky vibes;
Highway pulsations

Chinese lady guide
Delivers tour highlights;
Foreign inspiration

Off we go
Profound talk;
Morning invocation

Lijiang Expressions
A theme park act;
Chinese folk drama

Captive tour audience;
Lijiang story

Vast mountain range
Snow-capped peaks;
Silence speaks loud

Supersonic boom
Speech echoes wonder;
Our ears feel blast

Overpowering sonic
Lady tour guide drenches;
Too high decibels

So many words
Stressed and jarring;
Blazing this mountain road

Joy lives here
Spring lingers;
Awesome mountain side

This old village
By this mountain;
Agrarian dialect

Cotton candy clouds
Breeze the peaks;
Touch of heaven

Ancient village
Historical tribal culture;
Displaced by modernity

Theme park sojourn
By mountain side;
Photo snapshot collection

Now Playing

Sitting alone on a park bench surrounded by a natural beauty that only I can appreciate at
this moment in time. Oh, there are occasional intruders in this beautiful place, a few
joggers with their MP3’s hanging from their ears, lost in a world of music and running on
automatic pilot. They pass through this wonderland in a flash and miss the performance
only a sojourner like me perceives: The shifting breeze that blows through the surrounding
trees. I watch them slow-dance to a score that was written on the wind and only they can
hear the composition they dance to.
A long-eared rodent enters the green dance floor and does his version of the bunny hop,
stops to see if anyone is watching and continues his dance unabated.
A chorus of unseen red-breast thrushes singing their familiar early morning rendition of
“It’s a beautiful morning” while two male cardinals fly by warbling their version.   
A house sparrow alight the bench and looked at me and cocked its head left, and then
right, As if to say, what are you doing here? then flies off into the trees behind me.     
A squirrel scampers onto the scene and becomes aware of my presence and decides to head
back whence it came. Taking that cue, I realized that I had overstayed my visit and it was
time to leave.
                                           “Natural Beauty”
                               Now playing, Act one, scene one
                                         One brief performance

Stray thoughts
Noisy as monkeys;
Plunge into void

Words stray
Windy terrain;
Learn to listen

Write no more
Of you and I;
Be just one


Why write poetry?
No money in verse;
Wasted energy!

Heart sings,
Words attend;
Love child spawns

Sex and sutra,
Erotic passion;
Proof so timely

Fond plumeria
Flowers delight;

Fragrance greets,
Memory hints;
Home at last

Morning ode,
Sunlight approves;

New writes,
Stormy seas;
Feelings punctuate

softly a cool breeze sighs
shining angel wings flutter
mighty waves calmly sound

A bonus,

Dance, dark shadows
my sadness wrecks the skies
dawn breaks every day

Dawn hurls
Magic aura;
Song birds sing


Cheery sunrise
Poetry of light;
Ceremonious new day


Dreamy lines linger;
Unremembered glimpses


Brisk walk seeking
Wet market food supplies;
Fresh vegetables greet


Busy food court
Crowded queues;
Hunger strikes a pose


Early morning queue
Banking transactions;
Money on the move


Friendly fruit vendor
Skins three pineapples;
Durians? Very nice!


Night market stalls
All sorts of stuff;
Even used books for sale


My wife cooks
Family meal happiness;
Home-styled 3-Michelin Stars!


Our Prime Minister
Gives a hearty Rally Speech;
Beaming smiles like poetry


Bay front shoppes
Luxury goods sparkle;
Nice can be a vice


Too little too late
Now gone with the wind;
Regrets accumulate


Listen now
Your heart speaks;
Stormy revelations


Images flash
Ideas and insights;
Picture portraits swirl


Late to bed
Early to rise;
Prize of the wise!


Morning rain
Wind chanting secrets;
Nondescript verbiage 


Hibiscus flowers
Pink, red, yellow, orange;
Spectrums of hot weather


Plumeria ventures
Blooming in the sun;
August transfiguration


Stash of cash
Money for a rainy day;
Smile on my face


Words stream surge
Seeking a nuance;
Fragments and moments


So much to do
So little time;
Let's enjoy the breeze


Bus-stop heat wave
Pouring sweat ooze;
Humid and hot afternoon


Oriental beauty
Pretty and sexy;
Beer hostess serving


Electrons busy
Word craft attends;
Wet rain on concrete
