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

Last Leaf On A Tree

(The poem is based on The Short Story of O Henry " The Last Leaf". I was reminded of it while I saw a last leaf in the winter of 2011 while living at Concord, NC)

One leaf left on tree             
Not a sound of the sadness
Neither the despair

One leaf left on tree
No undue unhappiness
Neither any pain.

One leaf left on tree
All by itself in the air
Feels no forlornness.

One leaf left on tree
It spends itself in swaying
Breathing in the breeze.

Last leaf not the end
When tumbles down as time comes
Hundreds of buds sprout.

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

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?

Details | Haiku | |

Is it off

PS. Because some of the Soupers commented the way they did or wrote me personally:
The situation leading to this poem.. Suppose you've submitted a poem for contest after all your struggles to write the best you could ... and then contest is cancelled.. 
Frank H.'s contest... with exactly this title  - I think very original title - made me write this set of haiku... nothing more and nothing less.........  
This time no double or tripled layers........ :-) 

The contest was temp. cancelled................

Lively glows: trees and buds
       Picture of vibrancy

       Fresh, clean waters
 Fishes swimming alive, see!

 Blowing rustling earthly life
        A wane of touch

Twitting, singing on the tree

When her harp sings a minimalistic symphony

doughty fingers dance
strumming intense soft and strong 
on thin steel harp-strings

spring breezes' equal
myriad strings resonate
mesmerizing piece

floating on sound waves
thoughts wandering far away
heart and soul travel

oak butterflies soar
from strong transparent wired strings 
and stroking trumpets

life's rhythm vanishes
breath and heartbeat adopted
by gently touched strings

tantalizing clouds
enchanting passionate sounds
dictating life's rhythms

through alluring notes
I nestle from head to toe
in soft cushioned chairs

from intimate depths 
muted and exuberant 
gusts of warm heartbeats

heartstrings in music
angelic and hypnotic 
crystalline oak sounds

Harp player Anne Vanschothorst just does it... with her music... as described in this poem.  

Under "About this poem" two of my favorite pieces of her and her piece for harp based on my poem "A whiter shade of blue"

reincarnated Buddha sees ten, mmm, eleven mystic Haikus in the lotus

play while growing up
play when living toward your dreams
play when you are old

the trick of swimming
is to know when to stroke it
and when to float it

when terminating 
some life, plant or animal,
rejoice its being

serenity prayer
reminds there's little control
you're human, ok?

ancestors taught you
everything they knew 'til then
they could do no more

did you hear of the
golden rule when you were young?
remember it now

children need guidance
look to past and present to
help guide them forward

rules are made to be
followed from experience,
but always questioned

both dark and light views
show beauty and/or wisdom
to enrich our lives

it's better to sing
on key and pitch, but any voice
is better than none

a five seven five
rule of writing light verse makes
things interesting

HAIKU #12,035-12,038

Life blooms us flowers
Unlike thorns that leaves us scarred
Inhale each fragrance

And choices screened clean and bright
Quenching thirsty souls

Each moment steamed fresh
We shall savor obedience
And rely on Source.

HAIKU #12,044-12,048

Our mind is lighthouse
Capturing land sea sky with
All of life's runways

Our mind is like sponge
With its filtering system
That's alive like us

Our mind is labyrinth
Much more friendlier than foul
By grace from the Source

Our mind is structure
Of a hospital with church
And revolving door

Our mind is gateway
To heaven or hell on earth
And that is final.

Look, Insight

Land Ho! It’s in sight
Illusion, it’s far away
That’s quite the insight. 

From the bird above
I find the insight to recite
The feel incites me.

Look closer inside
We are there, we’ve arrived
But where have we gone?

The boat is stagnant
But we are up and about
That’s quite the insight.

Be Positive

Don't be that person, stuck in a rut,
Don't let your day always end in a but.

God's plan for you was made in the positive,
He doesn't want you to live in the negative.

When your life seems gloomy and sad,
When all you try turns out to be bad.

God , You are so good, forgive me when I fall,
Stumbling stones line my path, I hear the Devil's call

Go to the fountain and there drink deep,
Your problems will go if your faith you keep.

Say, Father, smile on me when I am so unable,
His love and  forgiveness will make you stable

Before time began, God made you with love,
Before all creation, came His love from above

He looked on you with love in His heart,
He has given you His best from the very start.

Horn Haiku

Haiku was by Horn; Soon again will be re-born; Night or early morn. 
Want to inspire; Give God my whole entire; Set world on fire. 
Bring best out in you, By letting God always do, Make our dreams Come true.           Am starting to see, When so sinful I may be, God will set me free.                    Religion receive, And no longer will I grieve, When in God believe.                              New end now in sight, When I will pray every night; Temptation back fight.               In heaven have been, Finally free from all sin; Amen and Amen.
