Haikus to Iran

In Iran they march
"Where" they ask "is my vote gone?"
Answered by truncheon

God, Allah, they call
In His name, holy, oppress
Gods weakest children

Other news shall show
Western television screens
But we wont forget

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

Save the children

Degeneration
Children in beauty contests
Shame on their parents

I have written this haiku after having seen on television that some people brings children 
of 2 to 6 years to beauty contests to win money and with the scope of launching them in 
show careers. This cannot be tolerated: children must be respected!

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.

SWELLS THAT COMPEL

ENLIGHTENMENT

the fall moon's lull shows
mystique silence across skies
branches shadow dance

rice seedling patch strewn
upon well-plough watered fields--
globular tummies

from my bikini 
to quilted silk evening wraps --
chrysanthemum blooms

rainbow processions
passing through cities thru-fare --
church bells count the mass

My true love

Not a day, week, month or a year, chased her non-stop.

why do i merry you, you are waste and has no hope?

Misled in society
Grain pretend as wheat

Turn back, take a side 

Ain't no harm you plead
To the country where you breathe
Dedicate indeed

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.

Bells and Cries

A lovely lady;
Growing inside, a new life.

Off to another adventure.

Done with their adventures.

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.

Eden

Bud of a flower,
open, reveal thy beauty,
and color our eyes.

I cannot picture,
this earth without your presence,
you are needed in life.

Your plant family,
400,000 species,
grass, daisy, orchid, are some.

Remnants of you, see,
your kingdom trace back to a,
Jurassic era.

now embrace sunshine,
attract guests with your color,
that they might find you.

Both male and female,
with pistils and stamens,
boundaries are broken.

-For atop your stem,
reproductive organs dwell,
encased in petals.

Pollination needs,
help, ask the bees to carry,
pollen to stigma.

Help is rewarded,
Nectar, a sugar-based sweet,
a feast you must seek.

Please walk gentle,
for some have intentions that,
are carnivorous.

Water, sun, soil, air,
and carbon dioxide bear,
Photosynthesis.

The process makes food,
chlorophyll provides color,
and ends the cycle.

Germination is,
the start of growth, for seeds to,
emerge from the earth.

The roots push down and,
anchor the seed into soil,
as the stem rises.

When petal, pollen,
leaf and stem dance in the wind,
life begins again.

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.

Leaps

Ready, get set now!
Positioning for today,
Leap with a light heart.

Flying to the sky,
The open heart singing tunes,
smiles with confidence

You can be more free
To be everthing you are,
Strong and soft and warm.

Capture this moment,
This voyage with your love,
Swaying to and fro.

Meeting the wonder 
Of life's obstacles and strife.
You will find balance.

Trust in your river,
Respecting the surprises,
You can paddle out.

The strength is in you
Finding your voice,
It is on the way!

You were born decades too late?

Fairy Nature

THIS POETRY IS WRITTEN IN 3 HAIKU/2 TANKA FORM, AND NOTES REFER TO SENSES.

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.




AUTHOR NOTES

All 5 senses are expressed within this write, looking at touch, taste, sight, sound and smell.
'make a coat','wrap up' all indicate being touched or enfolded for warmth/protection...as does 
winter's 'blanket'
sounds - could be taken from the animals, and weather...'crisp' evokes sound also. 'rest'-
evokes quieter times...
smell - comes from earthy woodlands and fallen leaves, contrasted with freshness of icy or 
snowy air...
taste - evoked from 'nourish', 'last breath' of Autumn and new breath of winter air.
sight- comes from the autumn colours evoked from the 'sunset' and greens and browns 
of 'woodlands', 'sexy', purity of ice and snow, 'falls leaf wares' - reds, oranges, yellows and 
browns...
