Halloween Haiku (for Linda-Marie the sweetheart of P.S.'s contest)

Halloween Haiku
(9.7.10)

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,
and beg without shame.

Subsequent morning:
Pillowcases wear make up-
Wrappers and trinkets.

The Thanksgiving porch:
Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.

All hallows eve night
Just one scary night in fall
Bats bit my isthmus

I changed my figure
Wearing black cape with shadows
Two fangs from my jowls

This tale of that night
Secures Halloweens darkness
My solemn visit

Poetry soups stay
Only at night I sojourn
Seeking blood delight

This Halloween time
I seek more than blood request
Poetry inquest

To live once again
In daylight and be set free
Normal mortal me

Stone Mountain

At the base of Stone Mountain in early spring, the view is overpowered by the height of the round rock. Gray cold granite exposed rock draws many visitors to view this unusual phenomenon.

 
cold massive hugh stone obstructs view for several miles white narcissus bloom
Climbing onto the sky lift, we inch to the top. At the top of Stone Mountain, we can see for miles around. The beauty of spring is exhibited in the different shades of green on the trees' leaves. A sprinkling of white dots the forest as Dogwoods bloom. Haibun form..

5 haiku from Christmas day

Christmas Day-
lone tire planted in the soil
under a willow.

Awake in the night-
Oh lover
I'll cover you.

Peering out window-
tall Crane stands over thick Hawk
awaiting a meal.

Shaved lamb to skin-
Winter morning leaves red spots
on its back legs.

A field of motionless
Windmills- Sun sets
gently to their backs.

The King

- Birth
Non-violent protest,
Southern winds blind with hatred...
Through tears, truth is seen.

- Passion
A man dreams of peace,
Righteous in his convictions...
Empowered by speech.

- Death
Lorraine whispers death,
Purple Iris in full bloom...
The promised land calls.

- Dream
Passions ignited,
By presidential decree...
A dream remembered.

.....Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer

CHINA TRAVELOGUE 2


Journey starts
Kunming portraits;
Highway song


Here old and new
Merge yet apart;
Vignettes juxtapose


China welcomes
Both ancient and modern;
Sign of the times


Tour group confronts
Unfamiliar grounds;
Rough edges grind


Quaint ways of old
Ancient tales displaced;
Modern day norms intervene


Spectacular vistas
Natural wonders;
Man seems insignificant


Flood tide drowns
Flushing away;
False assumptions destroyed


Gust of wind
Reveals new passages;
Knowing does not know


Mountain peaks
Valleys well-clustered;
Fertile grounds well-used


Everywhere we go
People of all tribes;
A Chinese pageant


Human nature speaks
Polite tones sway;
Touch of humble quiet


These Chinese people:
Kind, warm, hospitable --
A touch of home


Himalayan backdrop
Mountains for company;
Melodrama purged


Methinks that I
Could hideaway here;
Unknown, undisturbed


One sure currency:
The Chinese language;
Pervasive, ubiquitous 


Vast is the land
Far as our eye span;
Beyond imagery


Trades of all sorts
Risk is a sure thing;
Living is risky business


Ancient towns
Showpieces that speak;
In steady silence


Rivers and streams
Winding into quaint towns;
Ancient as old time


Pulse of the moment
Camera shutter snapshots;
Still life captured


Picture posture
By this arched bridge;
Keepsake souvenir


Sensory pursuits
Old Town bazaars;
Hasty trinkets acquired


Silver artisans
Hammer away;
Creations of white metal


Bric-bracs scattered
Awaiting curious eyes;
That impulse buy in tow


Round this village
Tourist show piece;
Modern commerce prevails


Bargains await
Hungry customers;
Weathered Oriental wares


In this roundabout square
Locals and tourists stride;
Seek new-found distractions


Spring time weather
Hot and dry and windy;
Like home without humidity


Our tour guide --
Cautions that silver jewellery
Best bought from reputable shops


Cheap price often
Compromises quality;
Authentic stuff cost much more


Lessons unlearnt
On-the-road trade routes;
Return odd regrets


A silver bangle
Heavy with 99 percent;
Quality speaks tons


Scattered eateries
Street vendors offer;
Glimpses that never die


So much to see,
Words fail description;
Feelings explore facts


Only ten days here
We see yet do not see;
Only vague interpretations


All too soon
Sojourn over;
Yunnan in mind mists

Where is summer?

- Ready
Rain, rain, go away,
We are tired of the gray...
Slippery asphalt.

- Expectant
The grass is growing,
Dandelions in the breeze...
School is almost out.

- Impatient
We live for these days,
This most spectacular place...
Languid dreams floating.

- Hopeful
Indian summers,
Down the road in September...
Global warming sucks.

...(Winter, Spring, Summer, Fall)

The Beach

- Summer Daze
Warm sun is shining,
Salt air cleanses my senses…
Counting grains of sand.

- The Coming
Fresh breeze on my face,
Rushing waves breaking over…
Non-descript foot prints.

- Uneasy Perspective
Restless is my soul,
Birds flying to field’s inland…
Storm shutters are closed.

- Awakening
Hazy dreams surface,
Renewal of faith begins…
Take out the garbage.

...(Summer, Fall, Winter, Spring)
