SPACE - the final frontier


”Captains Log”
”Closing Cruise”

Space… the final… frontier 

Milky Way 
Spiral look
~Violent place*** found in the space*** center of the UNIVERSE

Egg shape ship
~Billions of *** light years from*** face of Earth

Millions to,
Trillions stars,
Can’t touch the fantasy of this
~Old red stars *** very low *** gas and dust

Have destroyed 
The structure, when in flight
~We see in*** our own epic*** galaxy.

The Voyage has begun- come join me
And, journey to all undiscovered countries-
Boldly going where no man or no one has gone before-
High on my spaceship:)

SandCastle of dreams


********relaxing medicine****

My dreams of the sand
Underneath the ocean stars
Sleeping with the wind

********the beast dreams*******

Mr. Sandman's bag
Romantic, like pouring rain
Seashore wedding bash

********the world is home******

Wishing well mirage
Homeless with rich sandcastle
Ocean wave  pillow

********it takes two***********

Heaven passion kiss
4 hands creating a mote
Drawbridge of sea shells

*******hungry wings***********

First class bay front seat
Seagulls land on top tower
Essence of bird spill

*******colliding sandcastle******

Adventure hot day
Knocking the beauty of my moment
Stinky, little brother

#1**Unicorn Valley**
Land of purple hues
simple, sweet innocent eyes
rises from the east

#2**Guile of Disciples**
Magic gathering
hides away from the darkness
horn found on the ground

#3**Beautified Dreams**
Enchantment of life
ancestral home broken down
adorn the unicorn

#4**Freedom Quest**
Liberty or Death
Unicorn celebration
Epic battle won

No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.

United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

A Meaningful Vacation

Retrospect  while in solace
Now come back mighty

Anyone search sparks
Through me and Within themselves 
Gratefulness abide

Realization draws
People around me anew 
Things changed as I am.

cute and simple questionKU

*rub a dub dub*
  Bath time is fun,
  wrinkled small fingers 
  why is it slippery?

  Fresh rain-droplets

  Why is the sky-lit blue?

sexy haiku

Sex is a science
You can use an appliance
Don't be shy at all

Tickle her fancy
By telling your fantasy
Make it sound a ball

Don't try to diet
If it's freaky just try it
Taste it with your tongue

Make it fast or slow
Keep it simple for god knows
When beast lose control

The gift of pleasure
To which there is no measure
That majestic flow

Bought sold tried or trend
All good things must come to end
Again, just say when

                                laying down for nap

Midday Siesta

Beneath a pleasant
Sun and a gentle gust, I
Doze in peace on grass

Beware the Bayou

black-water swamps where
moccasins hang from branches
and gators patrol

monster mosquitoes
invade in hoards at twilight
thirsty for fresh blood

at morning's first light
dawn illuminates Cypress
birds announce sunrise

dangerous beauty
in the Wetland wilderness
and all is at peace...

Beauty in Paris, France

Blizzard in the Himalayas -- Revised

The wind howls across
Heavy snow buries the world
and then deep silence

I liked this better:

screeching wind, death sings
heavy snow buries, survive
a deep silence mourns

Miss Foxy and Hound

Miss Foxy and Hound 

The fox senses spring,
The hound is too tired to fight,
Conflict delayed, friends.

The hound hides in wait,
How smart are you, Miss Foxy?
Nature in action.

The fox loves to play,
The hound takes his role to heart,
Frustration sets in.

Lone opossum roams in.
The Hound comes to Foxy’s aid,
It’s complicated.

Cherry Blossoms bloom,
Foxy outsmarts Hound again,
The Hound likes his friend.

Autumn winds blowing.
They both know their time grows short,
Hound will miss Foxy.

Winter winds bite deep.
Foxy thinks of Hound, fondly.
It’s a lonely time.

The circle of life,
‘Twas just a matter of time,
The reaper commeth.

Spring winds blow, sadly,
Foxy searches for her friend,
Silence all around.

Miss Foxy now knows,
“My foe is gone!”, with a tear,
I will miss you, Hound.

A Little Reflection

The notorious gang
Clearly stated in the news
Is now declared Saint

And a pretty slut
Infamous to everyone
Is now called Mary

This political thug
Who attacked lives' belongings
Is now made the judge

In a time like this
Where vices are made virtues 
What's that all about

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking pot. Stereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Pilot envy

Envy a pilot
     escape gravity's clutches
          for oceans of air.

Manufactured bird

A featherless dance
     in the shadow of a cloud,
          elusive freedom!

To Lose Someone You Love

To lose someone you love....
Its like trying to live violently among the peaceful people who are dying 
To lose someone you love....
Its like Im living in lies with laughter and happiness while Im truthfully sitting in anger and pain while crying
 Im grounded in shame yet Im still airborn with death together we flying 
Its hurts when one dies past groundshaken proximity under the hate but sent with earthshattering love above
 where we live to die yet we are born to survive where we bred to learn to get past all the ones we have lost with hate because ITS REALLY HURTS TO LOSE SOMEONE YOU LOVE.

None Return

 Beware the old witch
as you go trick or treating
She can  hypnotize
House on the corner
where the old witch  lives, tempts some
to take one  last dare

 Then one by one they
ring the bell,  but none return
 to tell the tale

 Just screams of horror
are what's heard,  as cauldron boils

Magnificent stone
Surrounds me in mystique here
I am overwhelmed

Water has spilled here
Lavishing the brilliant stone
Smiling as I watch

Filled with natures gifts to me
I will not grow old

Fishing Haiku

fishing excitement great, landing one is fun, to the water I must go, ~*~ on the bank I do stand, baiting my hook and casting the pole, watching for line dance, ~*~ moments of time tick, awaiting a fish to bite, fishing pole jerking, ~*~ pulling to set the hook, the fishing line is pulling my drag, excitement flows, ~*~ seeing the big fish swimming, pulling it to the waters edge, grab the fish to unhook, ~*~ pushing the stringer through, wonderful fish finally caught, to the pan he goes so tasty,

As the clouds swirl frenziedly
Uprooting erections

To swallow the earth
As death enters

To sail the seas

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.

Above the canyon…the sun
Hits  		the 		rocks

I ascend
As 	I 	take 	risk 	after 	risk

I’m climbing

I’m doing FINE!

I descend
While	 I 	urgently 	hold 	on
For dear life…

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.

Cold, Flexible Steel

A serial of haikus, all addressing the same topic with 
a hint of humor; but advice that could save your life
or that of a loved one.  New to PoetrySoup, so I hope 
I'm not "out of order" with this submission or topic. 

Cold, flexible steel
Probing my dignity...

This “simple” exam
“…could prevent cancer.” they say.

We all have to die,
But not from colon cancer.

There's a downside tho’.
“Yuk! That, nasty brown liquid.”

“But boy, does it work...
Work and work and work some more. 

Baring your buttocks...
In a fetal position;
Then the lights go out. 

“No polyps", they say.
There are no malignancies.

Your colon’s okay.
It’s five years until your next...

Want some peace of mind?
Insurance may pay for it.

One “simple” exam
Can provide that peace of mind.

You might save your life.
Over 45?  Do it!

Cold, flexible steel.
On the other hand, what if…
Something else kills you?

New type of HAIKU 
Like the rain, there's a lot of things often
Appear, come, or happen
By others, they might not be interestingly taken
But for us, they always fasten
Our minds, before they go hasten
When you open your eye
And look at the pretty sky
You'll ask her, if you can fly
This is true, not a lie
We all wanna be high
Either am old, or a young fry
I'll fight for my nature, until I die
This is our beautiful nature
Protected by GOD's creature
It is really our treasure
Let's preserve it forever
This is our adventure

Its Never About Winning

Life for many of us around here isn't always about winning, 
because where Im from, it's almost always about losing. 
We learn more from our simple failures and mistakes than we do about our greatest acomplishment's.
 Failure for us is like our greatest teacher. 
Sometimes you have to lose, but I know it doesn't mean I have to stay beaten with failure, all it means is that I too am no better than you and I too am as prone to failure as you if not moreso, so around here it's never about winning.

I Fell Into My Grave While You Watched

I Fell Into My Grave While You Watched

To fall down into the endless abyss
Your staying to watch me as I drift away from the world I once knew
What am I doing I losing control I'm going without word
Why do you watch from afar laughing as though my pain is some pleasure?
Is this the end of me? shall I die here ?
Why is it you watch me why is it you do not save me.I see you watching with a smile.
I thought it was love maybe it was greed that made you push me down down into my grave.
You seem happy maybe it because I'm dead?Yes that it
I'm happy again I was feared death but now i see it as pleasure
Why are you crying can't you not see me smile your tears or vain to me
I'm smiling as I see you suffer you killed me and now your paying for it
Here you are now you can stay by my side forever
I'm happy even more since you came now we can float together in this endless void you created
I can see your back to your old none selfish self may we both smile more

it refers to a new type of HAIKU 
I'm a dreamer, it's the fact
This is what I'm able to deduct
After looking at my special tract
My dreams are like seeds, protected by a bract
'cause I wanna shine, due to my powerful tact
I shall fly, like a shiny bright light
I'm gonna be, in the perfect sight
Am still hoping, and I want to fight
Until my dreams will be accomplished, to be allright
I stayed awake, awake overnight
You couldn't know how I feel, because it's so tight
And deep in my heart, isn't that right
Listen to me carefully, mate
There's no time for us to wait
Our dreams to be real, we'll be so late
We must get them out, 'cause they're innate
Yes you believe me, we're all able to change our fate

Walking Through A Field Of Light

Walking Through A Field Of Light

then me and you see it the same way...i care not what happen to this body for the soul will still walk this earth watching over those it shown it love for

And yet the spirit of forgotten pain protects me, not wanting me to travel into the darkness that consumes the soul, for without this body, how can i protect those i love?

i watch and guide them for the body was lost but i shall lead them with a kind head and open arm. i protect their soul so they may keep watching there life grow into something beautiful.the darkness shall flee at the sight of the almighty light that watches my deed and my small soul

but for my last act shall be to vanquish the darkness that threatens life itself. but all things come to an end. what of the times, not yet past, but already forgotten, when i will no longer be there.....

when my fight is done i have no need for this unsettling place and with ever harming word will i walk into that everlasting light if i to be forgotten then that is fine for i have done them good and have made there life into something more then mine was.To be forgotten is fine for i shall not want a legacy

to have forged a life worth remembrance is fine, bu to make someones else worth remembering is all the better, for it means that they shall have a life worthy of my sacrifice, a life worth the pain once experienced, but never remembered, for i am now content.

after this body is lost i wish to be pay myself a gift is what is called.i will be content on not having left something a memory to be mourned for i with's no pain on those who have still they hearts where as i have walked this earth unknowing i died some time ago.let me be free for i am like a animal needing space time and needing that way of life.

then be free from the pain of the remembrance, and transcend to tomorrow, for that is where the future lies. i shall always remember you, but i shall not mourn, for we shall meet again

Writing non-sense words
to keep this mind occupied

when nobody greets and smiles...
alone seeking rare ideas.

So bored, unispired

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.

Mountain sentinels
By ancient town;
Clear waters cascade

Cobblestone streets
Winding pavements;
Trade offerings buzz

Fertile plains
Crystal clear waters;
Shady trees guard

Treasure-hunting stroll...
Through Lijiang Old Town;
Curiosity detours

So many things to see
Pleasant fare tempting;
Buying spree bargains

Artisans at work
Township flings open trade;
Silver metal everywhere

Older than 800 years:
Lijiang Town welcomes journeys,
Far beyond old silk route days

Modern day muse in-transit
Old town atmosphere;
Traced footsteps in awe

Wonder amazes wander
A world heritage city;
Precious ancient Chinese pearl

A gentle spirit strays here,
Preserved antiquity loiters;
Unspoilt living testament

Clear pristine waters gush
High mountain peaks preside;
Beauty frames this township

Spring waters flow non-stop,
Shared community well conduits;
Drinking, bathing, washing

Modern day irony:
Drinking water from taps;
Plastic bottled water

By the winding canals
Smaller streams circle around;
Waterways and arched bridges

Elegant old town greets
Tourists' camera shutter intrusion;
Gentle householders calmly polite

By this ancient arched bridge,
I wonder a thousand times;
So much to see in a short expense

We go around here
In circles winding zigzag;
Catch our breath from trekking

Memory can be short-changed:
I buy a few book souvenirs;
I will reminisce tour days later

Too soon morning turns
High noonday sun shines hot;
Cool breeze smoothes rough edges

Late evening darkness in Lijiang
Old Town in spring courtyard;
Colourful lanterns brighten

Buzz of evening vendors
A thousand offerings call;
Bazaar along the winding streets

Common folks with wares
Struggle to live a life;
Survival instincts ply

As I stroll by
Hear offers for strange stuff;
All manners of touting

I like these gentle people
Trying to make a sale;
Touting for a living

Our tour guide spreads
Good advice on-the-road:
Buy only what you need

Cascading waters flow
Through Ancient Lijiang Town;
Authentic tourist hotspot 

By ancient bridge photo snapshot:
Happy keepsake momento,
To reflect when I get home

Hand-in-hand we strolled
Through winding walkways;
My darling and I enroute

I remember that moment:
Springtime in May --
Lijiang kept fond company

Sensorial avenues
Memory instructs reality;
Journey journal pages

I write to highlight
To my self once more;
My own editorial times

One month back home now
June sprinkles hot and humid here;
How nice Lijiang's cool zephyrs?

Silver bangle from Yunnan
Solid white metal on my wrist;
Roman numerals add up to 78

Unearth my keepsake books
Yunnan in full colour;
Smiles amuse eyes feasting

Glimpses of old China
Surge and surge again;
Fond memories attend

Old weeping willow
Hunched trunk sighing;
Ancient times loiter

    I can feel accomplishment...
       many different ways

my handmade crafts  and make wonderful soups with acoustic musicians
performing there...maybe if I win the lottery this will be the year!!

Going to sea

- Underway
Batten down hatches,
Engine order telegraph...
Clangs full steam ahead.

- Crossing The Bar
Gray sky’s foreboding,
Waves crashing over the bow...
The steal womb shudders.

- Making Way
The days grow longer,
As gulls climb on the fresh breeze...
Betwixt and between.

- Arrival
Red, right, returning,
Tugs hasten our arrival...
Heaving lines are thrown.

So where lies my home?

Or Frost, miles to go...

Haiku Trail

Cherished memories
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.

(Dedication: For Anne-Lise Andresen.)

Instant recognition
Blind attitude:
Sees more than enough

Despair reveals
An ugly side:

Little by little
Sounds like a lot;
Hole in pocket

Witty lingo
Awkward tango;
Messy tempo

Learn quickly now
Wear a keen smile;
Screen faces you meet

Joy in sadness
Paradoxical frame;
Picture postcard sent

China in spring
Natural hymnal sounds;
No voice imitates

Peace in the valley
Nothing profound;
Extra plus ordinary fence

Haiku in season
Vivid frolic;
Wild things grow

Small child speaks
Profound sermon;
Hello uncle

Old uncle smiles:
How are you?
Small child hides face

Casual encounter
Familiar face pops up;
Crowded places fence

Birthday thoughts:
Song of morning --
Rapture illuminates 

Fifty-nine revolutions
Around the sun;
Celebrate miracles

Sweet nectar sip
Momentary focus;
Long haul to tall casuarina

Old banyan tree witness
School boy quarrels echo;
All gone away

Time passes quickly
So many ambitious kids;
Now preside over meetings

Old school mates 
Chance encounter;
Discuss happenings

Witty old father checks
Vivacious mother tags;

Fancy smart phones
Tablets for dummies;
Slow learning curve

Purple flowers
Creeping vines on fence;
Morning salutation

Morning Glory flowers

Fairy Nature


I'm fairy nature,
come to collect fall's leaf wares
to help make a coat.

A coat of sunsets,
a last breath of summer's glow
to wrap up autumn.

I disguise myself
living amongst the woodlands,
squirrels, bugs, birds, bees.

Slowly with magic
I single handedly turn
the seasons over;

sweeping winds and driving rains,
giving nature rest till spring.

I nourish the land.
Autumn's blanket becomes crisp,
stark, white, purity,

I contrast, redecorate 
new, sleek, sexy, wavy tones.

this surly landscape!     

Seasons have four phases,
time let me choose the quietest...
the one full of roses!

No visions of gloom,
delight changes the saddest mood...
serenity reigns!

Swanky dogwood sway,
stoop down and tackle my feet...
to keep me from sleep!
