DESTINY

ugly and awkward
only purpose to survive
until she cocoons

destiny won't crawl
springs forth in fanciful flight 
angelic rebirth

*the destiny of the butterfly!

Silent Voice

--Tree Silhouette-- 

shimmering tree
there’s no footsteps around       
but fallen leaves 

**
afternoon twilight
heaven is listening
peaceful lonesomeness
  
**
Autumn waits 
wind blows the mind   
leaves falling softly

The Stars

The stars in the night
Giving light like a sunlight
Satisfy my heart

I want to reach you
Just to say something 'bout you
You are beautiful

Oh Looking at you
Remembering all my days
Hope he thinks me too

I know you're not gone
Come with me 'till the night come
Show your smile again

Voices

                                                    I's walking alone
                                         Near down the stream of silence
                                                    Called my spirit

                                              "Ssshhh" calm blow of air
                                             Embracing my warm body
                                                     Uplift my spirit

                                                   "Ribbit, Ribbit" Oh!
                                          The amazing chants of frogs
                                                  Flattering my heart

                                                "Buzzzzz" the busy bees
                                         Dancing whilst butts were working
                                             Ouch! sweet kiss you shared

                                              "Tweet" the lovely birds!
                                           Circling around the bright sun
                                                 What a wonderful!

                                                 "Tik" ...can't identify
                                           There's moving under my feet
                                                   Alas! pygmy prey! 

                                                Can't count what I hear
                                           Wake up my dear sleeping soul
                                                Give one chance to live

Hanakotoba


Words are not enough
Language of April showers
Say it with flowers.

Gracious camellia
Daintily posing, but in vain
Begonia lost in thought.

Desirable
Hopes teeming with ambition
Of a stargazer.

From friendship to love
Exchanging yellow petals
With the deepest red.

Delicate beauty
Of hibiscus in full bloom
Inspires iris.

A blushing lilac
Unaware of dawning day
Dreaming of first love.

Bittersweet flower
Ever loyal to the end
Won’t betray a friend.

Parting time is near
Save the memories within
And forget-me-not.

Yellow hyacinth
With a heart that knows no peace
Nest of jealousy.

Morning breeze scatters  
The rich fragrance of jasmine’s  
Deep sensuality.

* Hanakotoba is the language of flowers.

Here in the garden

Haiku

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.

Bathe her cheeks in red and pink 
Are the stars aligned?

Furnish by the most priceless
Can't outweigh her love

And all the nature's beauty

...Her caring tranquil

Right way sure her way
Her prayer is excellence
...Can't banish such soul.

Whence Springs Beauty

It’s October, we find time to go by the spring-house to get the tulips. It is time to prepare for winter and the inevitable coming of spring.  The bulbs look hopelessly dead and ugly, rather pitiful in fact.  John nurtures them tenderly.

fall gardener tucks the bulbs in bed till spring's alarm
Through many snows and chilling temperatures, we do not consider at all what is taking place under the ground. One warm March day we see tiny noses poking up through the soil around the back porch. By April, we are sitting in the swing admiring the result of John’s loving labor of last fall.
seeing the blooms we recall dried-up bulbs
How could such ugliness have turned to such beauty in the cold, hard earth? As May approaches bringing other flowers, our short-lived tulips drop their blossoms and say good-bye. But as John knows, the wisest of gardeners do not hasten to bother the beauty in its passing.
dust to dust all blossoms shrivel with time food for the soil wilting leaves nourish the bulb hidden in the ground
The bulb remains unattractive throughout the whole cycle of growth. Along in mid-July when all external signs of life have faded, John removes the unsightly bulbs from their bed, putting them back in the spring-house until fall. Without them, there will be no blossoms next spring. It is the care we show the bulb which bursts into the beauty we bless in time. HM

The beauty of time:A poem of many haikus

The concept of time 
Intriguing in all our lives 
Especially mine 

Is time an object? 
Is it something to fool with? 
Can we transform it? 

Perhaps we cannot... 
Can we manage it? Indeed... 
Where does time take us? 

Into a new world...? 
A world where photos are old? 
Even where WE'RE old... 

When my time is up 
I shall wait... Just wait. That's it 
What happens after?

The charm of winter

NATURE'S LIVELINESS


       White to bluish skies
Lively glows: trees and buds
       Picture of vibrancy

       Fresh, clean waters
 Fishes swimming alive, see!
          Ripples of life

       Cool gust of breeze
 Blowing rustling earthly life
        A wane of touch

     Fruits and each youth
     Productivity emblems
        Nurture's effect

       Chirping of birds
Twitting, singing on the tree
       Nature's melody

Our forever

Oceans moves in waves
each single heartbeat grasping
claws of steel holding

Trance like beautiful
your every wish come true wings
of a spirit spread

Flying majestic 
beauty one golden eagle
power draws inside 

Flying high one soul
from an imagination
a gravity pull

Sweetly emotions 
singing illusions, one dream
reality kicks

In the arrow strikes
what a fantasy dream sits
feeling floating rose

Essence butterflies
fluttering blossoms sweetly
Explosion hotly

A soul it sang in 
one heart that gave wings sharing
a meal delight you

You sipped wine with grace
an amazing smile I could
feel the blood rushing

If I lost you love 
a lone wolf will forever 
howl to her face sad

Tears sweet surrender
never ending searching space
full of love howling

Felt like kneeling at
your feet adoring beauty
you will always be

Oath of forever 
love that very night to you
smiling beautiful 

You lit up such love
flames on fire with your 
grasping talons hot 

Took hold of me deep
your smile was amazing cute
drawing one starlight

Eternity calls
the power of destiny  
one in a thousand 

You lit up such love
flames on fire with your 
grasping talons hot 

Wishes trance like hold
beautiful in every wish 
granted came true love

Silver shadows in 
the deep ocean treasure gem
dancing ripples leap

Liquid silver paint
shimmering moon reflections
mirror distant thoughts

Golden the pathway
walking across rippling in
body, one deep love

Feelings begin to
hold in, emotions sings out 
we join together

Passionately we
kiss with all inside my heart
I love you sweet babe



This I co wrote with an amazing beauty on site twenty one the key to the heart's door

       Came gently with a warm kiss
               I couldn't refuse

             He gave me his arm
           A golden ray of sunlight
              To lead me outside

           I danced with the sun
         Enveloped in his brilliance
              Endless love affair

A Good Book

A good book takes you
far away to unknown lands.
Tears are shed. Death felt.

The fights are fearsome.
Futuristic tragedy
and past lives burst through.

Love stories flourish.
Characters become your friends.
History unfolds

Puzzle pieces shift
Clues hidden within the page
Space is tangible.

Canada Squared

I live in a place called Canada
where it's always hot or cold
Our bodies adjust accordingly to the freeze or burn of toes.
We have four season's unlike the rest,
and id say its quiet a scene,
But when you're here you cherish the sites 
for there's so much to do and see. 
We speak Enlgish- We speak French , and not one is all the same
But we do our best in hopes to include all equally just the same.  
Up here in norther Canada we do all we can do
but when it's minus fifty eight we're also  inside too.
Sometimes it's hot and sometimes it's not, in upper Canada
That's why we try to stay outside- when our weather is just right. 
Canada can be the place to be
If its meant for you.
You'll stay with us and all the rest 
 All just because you want too.

I am

I am just matter
My skin made of flesh and blood
Life's own particle

I live everyday
A poet in misery
Seeking to find it

That which has been lost
That which can never be found
That which has no name

Know I what I seek
I would share it with you
Unknown it remains

Love I my own soul
Sure, for it is eternal
Though it is unseen

My life I do live  
As it is meant to be lived 
Following my fate

I am, obviously
I have a family name
I live, sure, I do

I do ask myself
Of the ways of this realm
Wait I for my death

Eager to see it 
The gate of eternity
To be with the Lord

In the end, you ask
Do I really know myself
I would say, I don't

Clouds over the Ardennes

Reflected sunset;
Pink cotton candy under
Full moon, azure sky.
In Spring 1981 I was living in Charleville-Meziers in the Ardennes department of France. I looked out my window one late afternoon, and saw the sunset colors projected on clouds over the opposite horizon, above the village houses and forests on the mountain slopes. Stepping out onto the balcony, I could see the sky progress from light blue to a deep azure, with a full moon above them all. The beauty was stunning; I couldn't take pictures fast enough.

Sunlight love

You are like the sun
shining in brilliant beauty
but I cannot stare

Too close and I scorch
flaring passion sparks within
burning out my heart

Too far and I die
frozen cold in lifeless ice
I die without you

Beyond my control
I orbit, needing your warmth
I cannot approach

In the sunset glow
the red flows like my blood does
when gazing at you

I cry at night time
moonlight fails to reflect you
and my spirit fades

At sunrise I smile
because I can spend the day
before your presence

Natural beauty of nature Is like a beautiful damsel. She needs no makeup or perfume To enhance her physical beauty- Her beauty is truth, period. An anonymous wildflower Growing with delicate fragrance Beside a forests time-worn path Can’t be anymore lovelier If plucked and placed within her locks; Nor her comely grace be improved. Their “beauty is truth, truth beauty” Apart they are most beautiful; In concert they accent the whole. On a Grecian urn: “Beauty is truth, truth beauty” All we need to know.

Beyonce's Halo

My angel's on stage
Beyonce has pure talent
Her halo shines on

She lights up like fire
She pushes me to
Follow my heart's desire

She's a great singer
She's beyond priceless - 
Irreplaceable 

She's beyond dazzlin'
She sings so beautifully 
Oh! I sing along!

A Morning

Breeze with fragrance and glow of light

A basket of days

Up in the trees,
Cold from this winter night,
Bronze leaves dangling 

Along the wet hedges
A train passes,
And doesn't say much.

Sweet hot sun gently
Placed on the surface of my
Face- easy to smile.

The roar of jet 
engines- tilting onto a
Set destination

For two nights a
Constant beeping-
Location unknown

Foggy morning-
Down the crowded roadside 
Mist swirling in the light

Shadows on the rocks
A small bird takes rest on a 
Branch- the buzzing bees

Everywhere the sun
Shines is gold- the valley
Below the haze

Yellow daisies 
Sprouting throughout the fields
Early in spring's joy

Moon light on the
Rocks and dead leaves-
Some days before it's full

Thin empty branches
No light-no color
The darkest of view

The morning skunk
Hobbling across the street
Returns to the brush

Candle lit room
No voices range out
But he who stands before us

He has many
Poems- all spoken like
One long biography

Through the crystal
Clear glass a man with a flute-
Leaning with every blow  

This night with few clouds
But a full moon-ways away
The pink blossoms 

Thistled pine
And off further...
Everything else in the night

Waking up from a nap
My car window covered
In tiny dew drops

Walking up the 
marble steps up to a wooden
Door- further unknown

Outside the grocery
Store, everyone is holding
Roses- faces truly sad.

Instantly finding the
Right roses, I swoop them up
And take a big whiff!

Ah! These trees have
Blossomed- the scent of life in 
More ways than just one

Above the shingles
Of a brick building, I watch 
All who pass by

Busy is everyone-
Pacing a worlds length
Right before my toes.

My surroundings
Pulsing with great noise- I return
To the silent stars

Between the rush of
Walkers, a couple dancing a 
Quick salsa

From afar I gaze
At skyscrapers- a light flicks
On, then off again.

Tall and slim skyscrapers-
Man's desperate attempts
To flee earth.

Lying love down in
The candle light- her skin does
Not go untouched

Polished marble
Reflecting the look of the
Sun in someone's eyes

The wind slides
Easily through his black hair-
His smile to all

The water flows
Outward- rippling to the
Edge where the bird sits

Two sparrows sail
Over blank rooftops
Landing in the mint trees

The sound of
Rustling branches-
The palm fans in open air

Helicopters
Hovering in one place-
The loud sounds overhead 

The night is long-
A pack of cigarettes lay
Resting on the table

All as one
the birds flail from the
Telephone wire- and return

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I
( Life's Journey)


Life was beautiful
for all the leaves in the tree
in spring and summer

They flourished and bloomed
under the warm summer sun
and sweetest spring rain

Their color brightened
to a lovely shade of green
that glowed with beauty

Flowering blossoms
from the buds of the fruit tree
brought joy and delight

Little birds would peck
as they sit on the branches
on the lush green leaves

It was the best time
of their lives atop the tree
filled with happiness

But life has seasons
that never stay all the time
they come and they go

Spring and summer passed
autumn came and its cold winds
changing all the leaves

Turning their color
from bright green to brown and red
yellow and orange

Their brightness faded
their loveliness spent and gone
making them pale and weak

How seasons changed them
tempering all their nature
through adversities

Winter will arrive soon
and do her task of sweeping
the bough of the tree

The faded leaves will go
and leave the tree to herself
to make room for spring

When new leaves will grow
to replace those that have gone
in the cold winter

In such a lifetime
they have gone through all seasons
in smooth and rough times

That is how life goes
for all the leaves in the trees
in the cycle of life

BEUTY BECAUSE OF HER

I see beauty when I see her .... I feel happiness when she's around ... when I hold 
her in my arms it feels as we're floating above the clouds ... before I wished upon 
the stars a thousands wishes ... prayed to the gods a million prayers .. to light my 
life and lead me out of the dark ... they sent me the sun to shine a path to her ... 
now I know the true meaning of beauty .. 

A deep stare comes over when I look at her ... It feels as the universe is aligned .. 
and all pain is gone when i'm with her .. there's no hurting, not even a sad moment 
in sight .. everyday seems like we're growing like two wild vines intertwining 
freely ... laying by her side is where I go when I drift off in to space ... there's no 
one like her ... a soul so beautiful that reflects through her smile ... eyes that I get 
lost in but still in that place where nothing goes wrong ... now I know how it feels to 
smile from within ... because of her

you found me in every way left me without a word to say

there leave me without all these tears of loosing you
there in your midnight afterlight

Bio Of His Beauty

It takes my breath away to see such spectacular views
of this world, knowing that even they cannot be
compared to GODS beauty.
It is beyond mans fathomable ability. How can one
fathom what he does not know? or what he does not 
understand? We see His beauty in His people, in His 
church, in His mercy which He bestows; in his love 
which He gives.
We see His beauty in his faith, in His devotion,
in His promise too. GODS beauty surpasses and soars
high above all creation and reaches very low into
a heart so very dark and drear;
far below where we sink into sin. his beauty in His mercy,
His beauty in faith; His beauty in CHRIST; Himself...

Aura of magic;
Blessing the earth

Butterflies flutter;

Eyes soak the sights


Joy wears a gaze
Radiant with zest;
Smiles sparkle


Take a quick stroll
Greet sleepy neighbour;
Breakfast takeaway pack


Time looms large
With calm retirement;
So much undone


Day time dreaming
Impose new feelings;
Doing nothing


Excursion to nowhere
Time is no luxury;
We got a lot


My darling and I
In poignant gaze;
Years now a maze!


Self-talk heals
All sorts of unease;
Keep focus positive


Old age intrudes 
Upon the present;
Punctures young moods


Pursuit of happy
In insane world;
So much suffering


I remind me:
Live just one day;
One day at a time

Gehry

Metallic twisting 
Masts of shimmering light 
Fluidity seen

SPONTANEOUS


Moody sky
Lightning whiplash;
Stormy water colours

~~~~~~~~~


Potted plants
Passageway decor;
Blooming orchids

~~~~~~~~~


Pedestrian walkway
Route to somewhere;
Day bazaar stalls

~~~~~~~~~


Blue butterflies
Fluttering around;
Plumeria blooms

~~~~~~~~~


September moon
Romantic hints;
Streaking teardrops

~~~~~~~~~


Pulse of morning
Bamboo pines sway;
Breeze whispers softly

~~~~~~~~~


Silver bangle
China momento;
Copy original

~~~~~~~~~


Yellow bird rest
Enroute;
Sings of old times

~~~~~~~~~


Old cabaret
Vintage moods linger;
Old building restored

~~~~~~~~~


Old era compound house
Oxford Road guava tree;
Fond memories intervene

~~~~~~~~~


Traditional wedding
Friend's daughter bride;
Happy festival here

~~~~~~~~~


Search and browse
Used books sale;
Treasured keepsake

~~~~~~~~~


Muddy lotus pond
Hot midday sun;
Purity sparkles

~~~~~~~~~


Happy children play
Spontaneous frolic;
Virgin innocence

~~~~~~~~~


New media connections
Yet loneliness expands;
Cyberspace touch points

~~~~~~~~~


Extravagant outlook
Spending tomorrow's wealth;
Retrogradation

~~~~~~~~~


Brief tryst in time
Insanity extrapolates;
Nightmares lurk

~~~~~~~~~


Tall grass verge
Stray flowers sway;
Unnoticed treasures

~~~~~~~~~

S-silenced b-by S-silence

The blessed breeze stops
Out of nowhere – silence speaks
All else – s-silenced

OOMPH HERE 2


Song in the wind
Gentle reminder:
Rain through bamboo trees


Chirpy delight
Instant enlightenment;
Heavy heart uplifted


Postcard from somewhere
Far far away:
Greetings from long journeys


Old photograph
Faded with old times;
Ancient memories linger


My mother's gaze
My father looks;
Picture of the dead


Pain taunts
Sufferings preside;
Soon liberation sublime


Hospital visit
A sick relative warded;
Healing family support


Two yellow birds
Canaries on wood ledge;
Sing of fond love

OOMPH HERE


Sudden windy gust
Plays havoc with hair;
Air pregnant with rain


Torrential rain falling
Sky oozing water;
Viscous as oil


Long long queue
Taxi stand centipede;
No cab in sight


Common complaint
Common folks echo;
Too little time


By reservoir park
Bench wet with dew;
Curious eyes detect


Morning jog
Wilderness feeling;
Reservoir park circuit


My darling sleeps
Sweet dreams attend;
Angelic smiles decorate


Here I sit vivid:
Sculpt turn of phrase;
Poem emerging


Some long
For the good old days;
Fresh change intrudes


Anniversary thoughts
Think upon yesterdays;
Nothing much said


Needs and wants
Adversarial anti-climax
No solution yet


One more minute please
Morning wake-up call;
Sleepy feel malingers

Sudbury The Rock
Black and crusty surfaces
Loafing in the sun

PASSAGES HERE 7


Work word magic
Line after line;
Feel poignant purge


To write is risky
Touch of insanity;
Satisfying mood swings


Joy in wild moments
Tragic comedy;
Comic tragedy


Love is
Too busy to know;
Why or when or how


Head cracked from
Too much thinking;
Should feel more somehow


Echoes of eternity
In this instance;
Look and listen


By blue moonlight
Hear stray voices;
Yet nothing stirs


Strangers stand
Side by side squeezed;
Elevator delivers start-ups


Familiar faces
Office building complex;
Lonely in a crowd


Pulse, poise and purr
Black panther and brown tiger;
Two condo cats preside


Evening stroll
To night market;
Time for nothing special

Sunlight Sighs

Sunlight Sighs

Peaceful beauty bourn
where cataclysmic chaos
once adorned new dawns.

© Dane Ann Smith-Johnsen
February 11, 2010

Poetic form:  Haiku

Footnote:  Bourn is an archaic term that has several meanings.  
1.	A small stream or brook
2.	A destination; a goal
3.	A boundary; a limit
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/bourn

Line 1:  I used “bourn” in my haiku to bring to mind that the peaceful and beautiful places on 
earth were among God's end goals.  Creating peaceful and beautiful places.  
Line 2:  It may have taken seemingly catastrophic events such as the collision of earth plates 
to bring such mountainous beauty to pass.  
Line 3:  And since Day 4 in the creation process, the sun brightened each new day

SUNDAY



Late awakening
Sleepy and drowsy;
Dreamy mid-flight

~~~~~~~~~


Echoes of home
Familiar laughter;
Peace of mind

~~~~~~~~~


Rain and more rain
Thunderstorm mists;
Watery dreams

~~~~~~~~~


Two sparrows
Chit-chat bird talk;
What now my friends?

~~~~~~~~~


Whistling kettle
Steaming interlude;
Coffee cuppa

~~~~~~~~~


Listen now
Howling winds scream;
Rain punctuates

~~~~~~~~~


Christmas moods
Festive preparation;
Cleansing rituals

~~~~~~~~~


Joy to the world
Temporary ceasefire;
Warring fractions

~~~~~~~~~


Hope floats
Faith calls;
Love returns

~~~~~~~~~


Madness and suffering
Killer viral outbreak;
Death toll escalates

~~~~~~~~~


Human violence
Sad state of heart;
Avarice fashions

~~~~~~~~~


I awake now
Step out from a dream;
Trip into another

~~~~~~~~~


Dreary weather
Wet and messy;
Cold winds taunt

~~~~~~~~~

PASSAGES HERE 8


Humid and hot
Sticky weather persists;
Not even a breeze


Quick strides stumble
Sandy footpath skid;
Jerky reactions


Fruit vendor smiles
Full harvest and more:
Pineapples, guava, durians


Extra long queues
Food court sanctuary;
Hungry mouths parade


Here we go again
Newspaper vendor;
Politically inclined


When I discern
Do I see truth;
Beauty is fleeting


Charm speaks
Drama surfaces;
Sensibility evaporates


Too soon sunset swings,
Abrupt twilight falls;
Tea cup almost empty


Sudden moan and groan
Aches and pains sculpt;
Final testament

In The Minds Eye

To the left 
of the mossy forest path
the blue lake evaporates.

What does the nurse say?
“No, I will not strip for you.
You are a sicko.”

Winter Walk

softly pelting snow
crunch beneath the feet below
silence all around

Winter Wonderland

snow falling down slow
bird in distance breaks silence 
bows bending, whiteout
