Haiku Calendar

Haiku Calendar 
(January to December in the Southern part of the U.S.A.)

snow and more snow falls 
cold wind and more cold wind blows 
all branches are bare 

starving and weak birds 
a chill grips before sunrise 
fall from bare branches 

warm afternoon wind 
thin morning ice melts on pond 
a song bird is heard 

poppies hide in grass 
drink from early morning showers 
bees drink from open buds 

warm ruffles new weeds 
clover covers budding ground 
crickets find their song 

hawk hunts small rabbit 
green hedges give good cover 
blood drips on clover 

sun waves off dark soil 
flowers grow only in shade 
bees hive drips sweet wax 

in shade cow chews cud 
waits for dark to find water 
sleeps on top of mound 

east winds pull cool rain 
quinces bright hill flowers thirst 
streams roar then fall quite 

squirrel hides acorn 
digs hole at foot of oak tree 
barks at gray wet sky 

leaf fall from elm tree 
vacant bird nest are exposed 
geese sound over head 

deer move over trail 
fawns loose baby spots and jump 
graze on holly leafs

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

       Always watching you.
     He lurks in every corner.
     You'll think you lost him.
       He stalks you at night.
    Don't ever look behind you.
        Cause he will get you.

My Personal Emo Poem

Cut my veins, 
End this pain,
God knows I won't be missed, 
Whoever that is.
I live by Shang-ri-la,
Juggalos and Lettes for all.
I'm down with the clown,
Till I'm dead in the ground.
Nothing can hold me back,
I can't be tamed.
You don't understand me,
So just let me be.
I wanna be free,
So why can't you just see?
See that I wanna be gone,
I'm crying till I'm soaked to the bone.
I'm crying inside,
Noone can see it.
I'm bleeding on the outside, 
And crying in the inside.
Cut my veins,
End this pain.

What Would You Do

What would you do if you knew this was my last day to live??
Would you try and save or let me go?
Would you even care for my soul?
What would you do if I was a fallen angel?
Would you still recognize me?
Would you talk to me or ignore me?
What would you do if I died?
Would you have a funeral for me, so all my friends & family could come?
Would you cry or even mourn a 'lil bit?
Would you care that I was gone, or would be happy?
What would you do if I was a ghost?
Would you feel me right beside you, guarding you, Watching over you, protecting you?
Would you see me?
Tell me would you walk all over me, or maybe even walk through me, as if I weren't there?
What would you do if I was a demon?
Would you still love me then?
Would you still care and forgive me?
Would you just say "You are stupid, and I hate you?"
What would you do if I were and angel?
Would you love me more, or would you love me less?
Would you feel me touch you, and comfort you when you need someone and you think noone is there for you, well that's a lie, cause I am right here beside you to catch you if you fall, to dry your tears, and to heal your wounds of any kind.
What would you do if I was still alive?
Would you continue to hate me, and call me sadistic names?
Would this world still be cruel?
Would there still be a rule?
What would you do?

My Clock Struck Midnight in Autumns Court.

The Darkness fills me
illuminates fingertips
my eyes turn jet black
our dark hearts shatter like glass
your skin is cold blue
once vibrant soul matches suit
paralized with fear
we dance on our graves
holding sober hands
childrens laughter fills my head
flashing dark crimson and white
the grounds set for our last stand
our features are blank
as our last breath expires
embrace and explode

As time stops
So does my heart.
The beat, the sound
More important love
I lose my breath
The puke in my veins.
My heart and soul
Gone away.

I open my eyes
Start screaming for help
It was all just a dream
I hope.

Look down and
Laying there in my bed
I'm as still as a rock
Cold and dead.

The Hush Before Dawn

is fraught with poignant silence

Haiku's that I wrote while I was away. Hope you enjoy.

#haiku I imprint my heart . a fingerprint of my soul . the clay of your eyes #poem 

#haiku The delicate sound . a star makes when it twinkles . galaxy's whisper #poem 

#haiku I hear clear voices . resonating to my ears . my heart's fantasy #poem 

#haiku The shades of night fell . as curtains of the opera . Ending the act: day #poem 

#haiku Delicate detail . overlaying skeleton . disguising structure #poem 

#haiku Railroads of my thoughts . Locomotion of pulses . One to another 

#haiku Speakled mist in air . slowmotion movement between . scene to scene of town 

#haiku Nautical daydreams . her dress fluttering like sails . anchored to my heart 

#haiku Orange glow on ceiling . fades a dark eternity . these curious shades 

#haiku Yesterday's winter . a memory frozen for . tomorrows summer 

#haiku My heart is a time-machine . broken: out of order . doomed to the present 

If I was a fly, I would fly as high as I could, then just fall to the ground sniff 

asphalt glistens new . sparkling in the lamp-light . clean glaze of clear ice #haiku #weblit 

Let me tattoo her . heart and name onto my soul . to take on death's wings. #haiku #weblit 

Don't devour my words . try to reassemble my eyes . just listen to what's there #haiku 

Adolescence leaves . individuality . a thing of the past #haiku #poem #poetry #weblit 

Water containing . starlight sprinkles from heaven . colors of cosmos #haiku #writing

3 Haiku for Jamey

he is no longer loved
because he is gay

punished in the name of god
he hides how he feels

who was there for him?

hollow morn'

morning light seeps in   
like a wisp of a breath  
in winters frigid air  
spectrum of silver light   
like sunlit cushioned clouds 
against paper thin walls  
as shadows quickly   
appear: rush to these paper walls  
like tunneling snakes  
light brims golden,  
spattering dewdrop fields-   
glittering jewels  
their moistening of  
blades bending to the winds  
echoing a hollow morn'
