- Haiku X 43 - The Death-

               Christmas sparkling lights
               Weak brightness through tearful eyes
               Unexpected death

Texas Wildflower Haiku : Widow's Tears

sun’s heat sunders sand
clustered lanced leaves green hug
widow’s tears collapse

Widow’s Tears is the common name for Commelina erecta var. angustifolia, they bloom on 
Texas beaches in sand or clay, and have the characteristic of flowering early in the morning 
and fading by noon. The bloom in all seasons but I chose spring to be more commonly 
approachable. [1]

Collected Haiku

Detroit, five a.m.—
Soon, my city will rise and
disturb the ravens.

Windmills in autumn/
apple orchards/ falling fruits
of nativity.

Flowers on your grave
wilt like the words I could say
that might bring you back.

Midnight festivals:
paper lanterns burning oil
in the summer mist.

Music can transform
uncomfortable silence
into miracles.

I want to take my
time with your hourglass and then
come back for seconds.

When you go away
the rabbits will not come back
from the magic hat.

Eagles lock talons
together they form and break
like the divine winds.

You are the warden
of my prison of regrets
you have all the keys.

She holds my hand tight
when our love is imperfect
she is not afraid.

Haiku Reader Dies

Headline news lead bleeds
Accidental haiku death

Killed by tainted verse
Unidentified victim

Exotic poem
Attracts curious reader
Dripping vitriol

Extreme allergic
Reaction resulted in
Death of some poor schmuck

Industry spokes folks
Encourage illiterates
Stay away from words

- Haiku X 13- Boston Bombs -

                                               One lovely ballerina

- Haiku - X4 - Heart -

                                         A heart
                            learning language of love
                                    but also grief

                                       The grief
                            learning heart to go uphill
                                    death is heavy

An Old Haiku

The earth is green now.
The flowers open early,
blooming but to die.

                    I sometimes wonder

- Haiku X 61 - Bermuda Triangle -

    Triangle of death
    UFOs- maybe reptiles of space ?
    Unexplained powers

    A story well told
    Questionable assumptions
    Who knows the answer ?

                                                            a red rose
                                                       lying on a grave --
                                                         love is forever

Random thoughts **49** Haiku--Tanka--Haiku

5,7,5 -- 5,7,5,7,7 -- 5,7,5

Evil brews, no rules,
looming witches ride their brooms,
demon eyed ghouls drool.

Potions have been brewed,
voodoo dolls alter my mood.
Serial killers,
dead become walking dead,
I feel like I'm in "Thriller"

Vampires, Ware-wolves,
Kruger and Micheal Meyers,
stalking to retire..

Situation Haiku

the tsunami struck
with the entire world watching
the judgement of God

the radiation
that they always knew was there
silently rages

it's time for prayer
for the people over there
humble one's self

it's time for hero's
knowing they will not live
yet they bravely give

the sacrifice's
ordinary men will make
will save their nation

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

mantis catches butterfly
I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

loud feathered thud
- flight into eternity
deceptive glass pane

Samurai Song, Haiku

delicate blossom
rests in the still gnarled hand
bruised petals weep tears

weary eyes open
tiny cuts, the body bleeds
peace still years away

sun rise breaks the hill
heralds another battle
draw your sword and charge

Haiku 5

In its final soar 
Finds the limb it learned to fly

DEATH WISH HAIKU A Musical History of Cigarettes

 DEATH WISH HAIKU (AS Musical History of Cigarettes)
Snooky Lanson sang it clear
smoke in every ear.

From your Hit Parade,
Frank Sinatra blew the words one time
Didn't Fence Him In.

Dorothy Collin's voice
America there's only one to smoke
Lucky Strike's the one.

Drifting up her nose
pulling smoke into her lung
biting on her tongue

what is she doing?
coffins closing in with nails
death as slow as snails.

Do you want a Lucky?
More satisfaction pleasure
undertakers measure.

Camel smoke was nil
More Doctors smoked  Lucky Strikes
Than Mike Hammer smoked.

Nicotine all day
tie hers up in Christmas bows
blow it out her nose.

Free on Navy ships
Sailors never saw the light
Though the match was free.

Seems like snowflakes are falling.
However, it's ash.

Mingles with my frozen tears
