Here in the garden


Here in the garden

Here in the garden
Wagtail sings his happy song
He is so joyful.

Oh, such loveliness
How the roses smell so sweet
So many colours.

The dog is sleeping
The doves they walk up to him
He don’t seem to care

The Mulberry tree
Dances on the summer breeze
Oh, so gracefully

The Parrots feeding
Pink and grey and beautiful
Noisy birds are they.

I sit drinking tea
As the sun it smiles at all
I just bask in peace

Such a lovely day
I could sit here forever
I am mesmerized.

Masks (of Hallowen)

Darkness uttermost
Howl gobblins, gooks, grinch and ghost
Dripping touch of night

Blood like curdled light
Candle tears, white serpents hiss
Shadowing the mist

Hell has broken free
Behind the masked jubilee
Of death's silent screams

Rats, pumpkins, dead dreams
In dried fairytales of leaves
Mark, our prank deceives

The shuddering knife
Not again, jack ripped his heart
With pale piper's fife.

Not heaven nor art
The cold merriment, a wheeze
Of dark wintry breeze.

Silence can deceive

Another to destroy

PRIMATES(Haiku and Senryu poetry)

Calm is the monkey
Sharing the same genes with man
Nature made it so.

Though beyond knowledge
Man`s intellect is  pronounced
which makes us unique.

Spirits riding time, in swirling clouds, mist and fog, off the bluff they rolled.
Special thanks to James Marshall Goff for taking the time to explain haiku to me in a manner that helped me to appreciate its imagery and rigid format. "Visitors" is a spin-off from another poem "Heritage", which I wrote a few years ago and posted on PS only a few minutes ago. If the imagery and emotions I attempted to evoke fell short of your expectations, read "Heritage" and you'll tell more about what I was attempting to communicate. This is my first attempt at haiku, so do be too mean. ;-) ~<><

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

Seventh Night

	I woke in the middle of seventh night
	(surely He must have slept too)
	to the gasp of a heart-dream, 
	caught between now and when, 
	here and just beyond.
	Before I can take a breath 
	I am surprised by
	a sudden sucking out 
	of all my secrets,
	leaving little or nothing 
	to rely upon, 
	to believe.
	Later it came, 
	quietly enough, 
	a milky opening of thought, 
	hinting to me of my own history.
	A bright world unfolded  
	- the white celestial surface 
	of the universe, 
	upon which I traced my strange ways, 
	colored them the colors 
	of my deepest emotions, 
	my mind drifting toward
	the borders of something 
	that came close to poetry - and art.

That foul idea plugged up the drain

The Wind, see it move.
The trees, the grass, the world 'round.
Beauty in plain form.

A maiden so fair,
She's strong, loved, feared, worshipped.
A maiden not tamed.

Gaia, our mother,
She's a dream and a nightmare.

The sunrise, sun set,
Another day in her arms,
But then we grow up..

She's nothing to us,
Gaia is another planet,
That scientists probe.

Smashing my belief,
That my goddes is not real.
Why do this to us?

She is our mother,
Our home, who's wedded to our God.
We worship the earth.

Disdainful Haiku

Raped by Confusion
No one has a clue about
My lame, weird haiku  

Disdain is like rain,
Dripping continuely...yet
I ponder...wander

I think about you
And how treated me so
You're as sweet as pie

Something is missing
Oh! Something drives me insane...
Disdainful haiku

Why are unclear?
You're like a Positive Sheep
But, in wolve's clothing

Something smells fishy
Is it your odor or what?
Your attitude stinks

I think about you 
You've treated me
Dare you...oh you jerk!!

Drain away your tears
Don't bottle it up inside
Angst pierces my soul

Disdainful haiku -
Why are you so cruel to me?
Never stop trying (poets)!!!

HAIKU TRAIL :(Inconsistent with environment)


It is hard and bleak
now, below his tired feet
with the grey above him,

albescent with time
clouds bubble above him there
like an old man’s  beard,

though you, his sweet one
are the soft green in between,
bring back salad  days,

when you address him
you greet him with such relish
to flavour his life

and so he holds on -
ever in mind  as at hand,
leaning on the wind.

A Dialectical View

On the ground, stark still
The child immobile stared, saw
Its dead broken will
Songless feathers cold
Limping back from shivered tears
The bird speechless too
One bird flies no more
Death disshevelled to it clings
Like a silent heart
Each dying makes dust
Dust the silence of the song
Dust, death of a bird
No post mortem whys
Knowledge sorrows has no cure
Death cloud us with sighs
One tear glistened then
The mother tugged her away
Heart beating like wings
Dead before the church
In coldness, nothing flies now
In the silent skies
Hangs still the clod cloud
Air in air, a frozen will
Like a dead bird - falls
The mortal thread dangling dust
To featherless wings
A bird's desire fled
To this feathered crumbled heap
Shall I trust to sleep?

Let shadows speak

Led shadows speak now
Of things merged in dusky depths
A bridge brimmed with vows

In the silence hear
The breaking heart of deaf trees
Rinsing the blind love

The web shakes tighter
Shackling the wings cry for help
Joy glistens with tears

The bird mutes its wait
A spider descends to feast
From talons of fate

Leaves are dry of tears
There is no trace of dead things
In dawn's drops of dew

The nightingale sings
Impervious of my pain
It's homage is kind

I hear silence now
Footsteps of sun on my skin
Love's soft wings are webbed

Day throws a bright net
Over my dreams, the seed sleeps
Till the soil is wet.

Deaf trees break my heart
Roots stab again the soil's eye
And groan in its stead

Soars by with angels’ might

Nourishing green leafs

Seeds sprout from shun ground

Gleaming glory of hope
Over all dominions He rules
Divine Guiding Moon

No Sleep Is Placed In Eyelids

I can't resume my mission
My eyelids split open

Sprawled in my puzzled head
Unable to push head down

My wings are unfolding 

Blurred by the galling night 
Crying desperately for sleep 
My eyelids are cut off

Twenty Haiku

Now she sits down, head
hung low as my soul,
picking at the grass

Her head’s on the desk
counting out the syllables
just like me

When the moment calls
ah, what use are syllables
let’s break the cycle

Five seven five five
five seven five seven five
five seven five five

Tick tock, going round
and round and round and round and
round and round and round

As eons crawl by
the moments repeat themselves
only for those who listen

Facsimile smiles
she told me this yesterday
and I know the secret

“Cut it out guys, it’s
serious as a heart attack”
that was good timing

A hole on the knee
a hole in her jeans
a hole in my soul, oh yeah

Counting out the words
what utter futility
what else in our lives?

Eight bars of light sit
on the ceiling, letting us
see what we are doing

Impeach Bush and Cheney
says the orange bracelet

until they all come home, I
will wear this yellow bracelet
to show my solidarity

Hair stands on my hand,
blown by the breeze
of the air-conditioner

A silver cross is hung
from the fire alarm
blown as well on the breeze

Under the sun, we
play out our peaceful lives
never stopping to think

Dammit, go away
sit down, because you
are the freak

“Nice guys finish last”
stop talking to my lady
well, not really my lady

This feeling,
I must deal with it

Dangerous, dangerous lady!
Don’t you know you’re heading down
the road to heartbreak?

How can you get what I want
And what you want
And even though you hate your life
You shouldn’t because look at me
I have nothing

And I can’t get over the frustration
Because you take away
And I get nothing
But wishful thinking and
Shattered hopes.

                                                 Raw, subtle
                                                 Shifting, pulsing, transforming
                                                 A centerpiece of soul.

Your Times Almost Done

your times almost done 
and still you have not told me, 
how great your life was?

So bitter, so strange
I will never know her mind
Or what speaks within

Cold Soup

Soup in willow bowls
Vengeance with silver spoon gild
A meal best served cold

Gold Above The Sea

mesmerizing me, at once
isn’t it a spell?

Fierce, thunderous winds,

Coming from within…

Green Sprouts

. . .  wind-blown brown leaves

               gray dust swirl round

                        fresh green sprouts. . .

Water rushes, sweeps.
Tide enfolds as ground moves round.

Feet engulfed. Swallowed.

weightless to the hunter’s eyes

Don't Give Up On Me

Draw me from black depths,
Guide me toward shallow pools,
Familiar blue-greens.

Love stripped to the bones,
Purity in finest form,
Bright light hold me close.

I want to need you,
Know that I'm hopeless, drowning,
Don't leave me here alone.

good morning to you-

good morning to you…
o great sky show me the sun,
unto thee I plead.

Wood Rats

Caustic soda smells!
Teeming with logs, bark and slabs.
Motors at the vats

Pump and pump strong til
Suddenly!  Circulation
Stops by the wood rats.

Mysteries lie here,
beneath the water and grass,
we'll never know them.

So Beautiful

So beautiful falls
Looking down from above, soft
Is your love, gives life

Details | Haiku | |


Cosmic tilt of head
hums in arched back  - opens eyes
of cupped palm's heaven.

Details | Haiku | |

thou the land is gray...

thou the land is gray...
the trees and tares grow freely,
it is the Lord's will

The axe head sank, then surfaced
Floating by a stick.

Seated on my stretched right hand,

White velvet petals,
On a crooked emerald stem,
Now there is no more.
