            a limp hand I hold

as the wind takes your last breath

            the candle flickers

How Fast it Dries

the jaguar's tear
slides off his single whisker
clouds do sigh

three offspring
dragged into the river's teeth
one remains

they both stretch
the moment of sorrow lost
life leaps on

#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

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]

Moving through soft veils and mists,
Pilgrimage homeward.

The Lost

                                                Innocent lifeless
                                       Pretty children rest in peace
                                             Let us pray for them

                                            The kids were victims
                                       The shooter was victim too
                                             Let's not put a blame

                                                 Exclamation sign
                                          Love family, love it right
                                        Don't loose, hug them tight

                                                  Dear educators
                                           Part of the victims as well
                                               The lifetime tribute

                                           Mourn traveled the world
                                         Burn by cause last on effect
                                               Careful in our steps

Demonic Noise

tsunami commands 
mother earth to tremble --
demons unburied

blue skies of water 
pour out devastation --
crashing tears thunder

thunderous booms of
explosions in aftermath --   
resilience conquers

When the Stream Stops Flowing

          My heart beats roughly
With the stream's incessant flow-
                    Impetuous death.

Once Upon a Dark Fog

Where the trees once stood,
A dark fog covers their grounds-
                    A path through lost lives.

Life's Fragrance

Bright and intense hues
Breaching through Earths fertile womb
Strewn upon the tombs

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.
