Sweet Fragrance of Spring

                      Grandma's vase waiting
                     on Mother's lace table cloth
                         for lilacs to bloom

Compassion embraces a child eternally
That uplifts a child’s soul in isolation in every way.

Our unexpected blessing

Unexpectedly 
She became a part of us
A one year old

After many years,  
Pitter patter sounds was heard
And nappies changed 
She is a young lady now
Started working already

Our little princess
My sister’s gift from above
a blessing to us.

Christmas Without a Christmas Tree

Glittery Christmas
Filled cavity on my mind
Christmas ain't yet come

**************************

Sight flickering glare
Alternately trap my eyes
But shines ain't for me

***************************

Christmas, dear Christmas
Be the present of my tears
Tiny hug in missed

****************************

A tree full of lights
Shimmered warm, deep on my cries
Sad memories blinked

****************************

Pretty past inhaled
When time puts togetherness
Now just three of us

New family tree

Crisp apple fragrance

            A family gathers
    under the autumn sunshine
          picking the bounty
   Ladders rest against the trunks
     A picnic waits under trees
                         ~

           Children giggle while
       russet leaves whirl merrily~
God's eyes are smiling

Wedding Visitors

visitors arrive
during Chicago’s snow storm—
warm fire inside

the Florida-boy 
wearing short sleeves and jeans—
snow angels

mother and father 
shouting, “Wear your jacket”—
pneumonia

ice on the front steps
beneath foot long icicles—
handrails

the oldest son
cooking jambalaya—
guests inhale deeply

the step-mother
staring outside from upstairs—
snow drifts

children and sleigh bells
laughing as they speed down hill—
sudden stop

The New Orleans Saints
playing on her wedding day—
Cajuns watch

the wedding party
lining up for their entrance—
the Saints won

Children make Life

Little cute buds
Playing, sitting, eating & sleeping
Children make life

Smiles to tears
They show all emotion in life
Children make life

Growing little everyday
They crawl, walk run to embrace world
Children make life

Innocent at heart
Simple joys they cherish live every moment
Children make life

Dear to every heart
They conquer anger with a sheepy smiles
Children make life

Learning and mimicking
They catch every world and act you do
Children make life

Source of joy
They bound the bonds of humanity 
Children make life

Daughters are blessing
Bringin prosperity to fathers and society
Children make life

Sons are strength
Mothers see their pride in them
Children make life

Son or daughter 
Let the joy bloom in every garden
Children make life

Bells and Cries

A lovely lady;
Growing inside, a new life.
A man in a tux.

Another bell rings now.
Final grades, balanced college offers,
Off to another adventure.

Damp ground, headstones.
Growing inside, a new life,
Done with their adventures.

The Photographer

Skies gray and rains blow;
Trees sway and creak like old stairs.
Thunder rolls and booms.

The den lights go out.
On the brown faux leather couch
Kids crowd together.

Whites of their eyes show.
"Shush! God is doing his work,"
Grandparents tell them.

Lightning bolt flashes,
Illuminates the front yard
And freezes the scene

Framed by porch windows;
He snaps candids from the storm,
Outside looking in.

From one side coctail and from another - a la furshet!
Fly and dream about tender love...

Road Kill

A day with the family to enjoy lunch in a town close by..Heavy gray clouds, wind, and threat of tornados leaving thoughts questioning whether to go or stay..A day to do the unusual wins..The gun enthusiasts go to a gun show while the ladies shop..On the way the gray clouds seem weighty...

buzzards eat noon meal
road kill thrown in open field..
bradford pear death wreath

Sun emerges for a few seconds somber weigh lifts..

From depths of oceans and seas
Up on waves to sands-

I Do Love You

I do love you,
I cannot describe it,
The love my heart and soul, and my whole being feels for you my love.

I do love you, 
I dream and daydream, of that day where you say I do,
Because that means you love me too.

I do love you,
You make me laugh when I am sad, and you pick me up when I am down, and you are the light of my bad day.

I do,
I do are just simple words, but they mean a lot to me,
You see, they are not just three letters, they aren't just two words,
These two words go a long way.

I do love,
You taught me how to contain myself, and not lose myself, and not get mad too easily, if I do, I can quickly recover from it.

So I want to say thank you my baby Dustin James Palmer, for being there for me and saying,
I do love you.

my mind, and
take a lot off of
my mind. Reading
is my only weapon to
escape from this crazy
world, without reading, I'd 
go insane, more or less die,
reading gives me something 
to do when Briana isn't
there. When I read,
I see pictures of the story,
and I go in their world.
It's like I'm crazy, and
everyone else is normal, but 
really I'm just like everyone else.
Reading is Exhilarating,
I love reading.
Reading is my friend.
The stories I love most
are mysteries, action,
Suspense, and a little romance.
I am my mom's little
bookworm, and forever I will
Stay. There's nothing more
awesome than
reading on a cold winter 
day, you can also read on a
hot summer day, it doesn't 
matter, you can even read
on a cool autumn day.
You can read anytime, and 
at any place.
I LOVE READING!
Always~N~Forever, Briana Lynn Palmer

Haiku Collection Number 1

Hot tropical night
tension, sweat drips, bodies move
it’s time to tango.

Trimmed in red, white, green
ornaments sparkle and shine
Christmas time is here.

Golden Buddha sits
wisdom comes from emptiness
Shakyamuni, be.

White flakes falling down
glitters like stars in the sky
go up, ski down, weeee!

Swish, swish, swish, left, right
swish, swish, swish, down from up high
hot cocoa awaits.

Sun sets, pale red sky
mountains darken, purple sight
love Colorado.

Eight tracks and cassettes
memoires of the eighties
tunes blares as we cruise!

Honking all the time
everyone waiting in line
wild geese eating.

Black bird walks funny
searching for a bite to eat
that finch got it first.

Strange and bizarre dance
colors moving back and forth
parking lot ballet.

We bid you welcome
to our home of happiness
come and share it’s wealth.

Friends arrive this night
smiles and laughter for all
would you like some tea?

Sadness, time to leave
wisdom and cheer must be spread
to those that have need.

Cloud covered moon glows
eerie light darkens, pitch black
the wolves howl no more

searching the horizons

 
violet tinged edge of night-   
the lights like clinging jewels  
draped over cities  
    
and as they stab the  
dark that cloaks like black winter 
coats, enveloping  
    
a streetlight dies quick  
like my mother, though I will   
search for her always

lonely battles, endless dreams,  with dark red eyes, my childhood screams
Nothing is going, on my way, "It's my time" is hard to say
How to move, how to fall, frustration is growing tall
Still I try to find my way, "It's my time" is hard to say
With lodes of hope of mom & dad, I stand tall.. cuz i can't fall
two pairs of never ending dreams, I'll make my way.. Someday

I Will Never Be What You Want Me To Be

I know you may hate me,
I know I may have dissapointed you,
But I promise you, I can change.
Father I know I have lied to you,
I know that I may have disobeyed you, but
Can you please let that go,
Can we be a family again?
"I promise I'll be better, daddy
Please don't leave. In a family portrait
We look pretty happy, we look
Pretty normal, can we go back to that?"
Those few lines were from P!nk's
Song "Family Portrait." Dad I promise
I'll try to be what you want me to be,
But I'll never be enough for you.
I'll never be what you want me to be,
I'll never be perfect for you,
Oh, yeah, and I'm sorry father If I don
Not live up to your expectations.

Between Venetian Blinds

Tuscany beckons
Wandering minds traveling
On the sun's last rays

The pale flesh glowing
Mother stirs from her closed bed
She slides to a stop

Where is she going?
When will the awaited day
Arrive for our sakes?

Letting go is real
Cry, celebrate, or wishing
Through it all we wait

Touched by the angels
Her heavy eyelids closing
Old thoughts will return

A warm offering
Quiescent reality
Numbing all to sleep

Brother's soft hair
Sobbing through the stagnant air
Breathing in deeply

Distant music plays
Chords of joy and pain wander
Forever reaching

Sister's loss held in
Bursting with the hope for death
Squeezing in the love

Past, present, future
Father's sad joy leaking out
Through Venetian blinds

There are no angels
Hovering where we can see
Belief quivering

God sends us no signs
Mortality challenges
At sunset right here

Opening Mouths

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Unlocking the pain
Making waves in the ocean
The under tow pulls

A downward thrust calls
Swim hard up to the blue sky
Breathe in and breathe out

Open mouths suck air
To calm the tired spirits
Exhaling their pain outward

Deeply remember
Listen to the suffering
Take it not on board

Compassion is lost
Understanding is the key
Love is the answer

Days and nights and the universe

Days and nights and the universe 
I
The musty monsoon 
insects with swelled bellies
soggy paper boats.
II
Curiosity 
a black feathered bird peeps in,
there is no return.
III
Close the eyes, its night.
A bat has taken a bite; 
the fruit rolls away. 
IV
The desolate rails.
Millions of butterflies, 
they reign the wild shrubs.
V
Crystallized water, 
this rock has witnessed years,
a fly has more eyes.

are the reminiscent source
of future daydreams.

Friends disperse, forget.
They’ll become strangers to me,
once I’ve said goodbye.

Adventure awaits:
the dawn of a new era’s
almost upon me.

Realising my dreams
and achieving my targets -
my life is on track.

Facing the unknown:
daunting and mysterious.
I conceal my fears.

I try to picture
my destination, prior
to my arrival.

Now its time to leave.
Ending, ended, over, gone:
my journey completes.

Rises high on air currents

Candle Moth

Candle Moth flies to
The light falls drunkingly down
Returns to the light

way with some people that keep doing the same thing over and over and never learn from 
their mistakes.)

Sword flashing fire flows
leap lurch land on pipe led toes
Down hill slicing foes

The picture is a young wild clansman
with a shiny wet sword
led by bagpipes like a wind blown thistle seed

Double Rainbow

The hard rain tap danced;
Quickly finishing the song,
Winds parted the clouds.

The bright setting sun
Painted a double rainbow
Conjoined by blue mist.

Its water colors
So vivid seemed tangible
Piercing through sky dust.

Amber rays mirrored
The bow in opposition
Foreshadowing night.

Yet, the very ends 
Of the arc I saw touched earth.
...felt I could find gold.


Details | Haiku | |

Look Well!

Look well like long harmony,
May smile to the seeing very sweet desire,
Have it much more as an open dream for your Love Fire!

Moving Up...

The trees are forest of immortal love:
To kiss all without tears for free and innocent
Wisdom of Teddy Bears moving up...
