Sharing is friendship.
Moon and sun are best of friends.

Enlightenment

So many people
are out smelling the flowers...
Hope some planting them.

Pluck not the flower
Let it be the delight of 
other travelers

Flowers in morning 
tell us to look up always 
and not to look down

By plucking petals
impossible to gather....
fairness and fragrance

Fairness and fragrance
always will stay in the hand
that gives to someone

I asked a flower,
“What is the meaning of life?”
opened empty hands.

Istanbul In My Dreams

Your expectations are carved into my eyes...
Their shapes melt in my dreams
The face seen in your postcards
Is not that of your soul Istanbul...
Living apart does not change your seas
Your waiting landscapes offer themselves
Thoughts do not remain still
Istanbul rests its weight upon my loneliness...
White fish swim in your living past
Seagulls float in your memories
Obliterated friendships stay awake till dawn
Anatolia rises from your horizons Istanbul...

They Have Woven a Net Around Us

 A feeling of nearness to suffering
In our hearts
While we reduce the dimensions
Of the essence of light
With our eyes
In a local scuffle
Them
They have woven a net around us.
Bearing the pains of life
While watching the people with sullen faces
And tired thoughts
All along the years
We have heard the whistle of whips...
With well-concealed thoughts
Those
Never thought of us
And... without any mercy
Have woven a net around us.

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

But we wont forget

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

*Note: 
In 1994, William N. Britton wrote the , "Legend of Rainbow Bridge". It is a hope filled story of where all (pets) "special friends" go when they leave this earth. It's a place of "beautiful meadows, grassy hills...fresh spring water...plenty of their favorite food to eat...others to play with...". That place is called "Rainbow Bridge" and it is where they wait until we get there, "just this side of Heaven", so we may go in together. db

****Written for Tracie's Guetto Haiku Contest****
I will certainly keep my New Year’s Resolution.  Since something like 90% of people break theirs within a month, I fight to ‘break the mold’ and always keep mine.  Four years ago I decided to drink my coffee black and I still do…I like to be part of the 10% I guess.

vale of unknowing awaits...

retreating homeward
a secure haven to feast...
anxious pups await

 
 
__________ 
The Wolf


 
passive and active
a painted face of beauty...

the alpine pair climb
slow and deliberate movement...
together for life


 
a new season comes
basking in autumn sunlight...
a brilliant trek dreamed 
 
__________
The Coyote


 
opportunistic
along the foothills searching...
a lone Coyote roams


 
proud and elusive
a desperate plight to sustain...
a silent rain falls


 
a gift forsaken
preserving natures balance...
the jackal cries pain...

The Top

The tiniest tap
Within this vicious circle
Quickly amplifies


And so it begins
Spinning out of proportion
Stopping at nothing


Playing with passion
Lawless, careless, beautiful
Teasing misery


While our lives are swift
The top may move at light's speed
Faster and faster


The force of hatred
Cannot strip it of its glee
Centrifugal joy!


Gravity is weak
Easily disregarded
So much space to dream!


The mighty Neptune
It fervorously dances,
Tangos in the light


The theatric top
Likened to the universe
Spinning endlessly...

Of two, your uncle doesn't like either

 
By his attitudes
your uncle resembles
a machine with laughs in brightness! 
With some difficulty
most people stop themselves
from laughing.
Besides, are they are in a state
to laugh -
poor people?
Their problems exceed their means,
high costs exclude...
their children are untenable.
Their waiting
lags behind
the century. 
Finding
nothing else in place
he grabs passers-by
by the nose...
a gag in one hand,
a carrot and an onion
in the other.
As a matter of fact...
what does he want,
your uncle?

mystical midnight

Unseens reunited
Mystical midnight matters
Moment of learning

Looking outwardly
Missing for someone who left
Drowned while hold last breathe

Night full of wonders 
Touched our enourmous feelings
Shown us the best way

So lucky are we
Midnight wind blowing so cold
Wonderful moment

Were alone but free
Distance defy our senses
Momentary creed

How pleasant to hear
The whisper of waves beside
Refreshing our wit

Here we are tonight
Feel the ocean breeze awake
Discernment took place

Lost and weary soul
Waiting to be  enlightened
Grateful while glaring

The Answer

Softly speaks at night Dreams of all tucked in very snug, Faith wrapped, loved always Imbues freedom with Ringing tones of peaceful notes Cuts the grey dense air Covers soldiers of Light, the wings enveloping, All hatred now gone Kissing devils and Hugging angels in hiding Curing ills of mind Minding the absence; Without which we perish, then, The answer is love _____________________ Please find God's love, it is all around us and my friends... it is the answer.

Laboring in pain
And all the effort
Gone down the drain
The city is washed away
By the heavy rain
Our struggle in vain

But what else can i say

Quadruple Haiku-GOD NEEDS OUR PRESENCE

Wherever life breathes,
love beautifies everything
He has created! 

Waterfalls nourish
what's lies underneath as ponds
hold their fresh water!

It's a Paradise
we have lost since their first sin...
let us take it back!

God needs our presence,
to walk with Him and obey...
we can be holy!

Space

The human brain's space
Contains storage room for more
Than three million years

The brain has branches
That looks like trees alive that 
Feed on chemicals

Fear produces bad
Toxic chemical that makes
Black branches in brain

Love cast out the bad
Produces good chemicals
That makes the brain well

(A book called "Who Stitched Off My Brain" tells about this and how to change bad into good.)

DON'T FORGET

Even if I've lost you
To those mirrors
You'll always be
There before my very eyes
Perhaps I can no longer
Hold your hands
Perhaps I can no longer
Conceal your nudity
In white cotton twills
You'll be arrested
By those very evenings
where and when you'll see
It's all stopped, just like that 
Before your windowpanes, disappearing
Read my name in the reflections of light
Don't you forget it 
You'll be arrested by those very evenings
Don't you forget it

FRIEND, YOU'RE NOT THE GUILTY ONE

Friend, you’re not the guilty one
The guilty ones are the evenings
See how they drag you down into this obscurity...
Trouble not yourself
Everyday’s "Love’s Labour Lost"
Vanishes away
Your eyes have learned
The meaning of love anyway
Learn how not to remember
Every point of suffering. 

Remember not those eyes, those eyes
Have gone and they’ve enticed you into smoky cafés
Don’t go and believe 
your eyes, they're just not
as sharp as they used to be
Friend, because you aren’t the guilty one,
The guilty ones are hopes
Leaving you to the shadows. 

So what’s the use of fussing
If they’ve never understood
The poems your own baggy eyes
Have forgotten? ... 

You’re alone in an unknown beyond
Your eyes are alone as well ...
You’re not guilty, friend
The guilty ones are hopes
Leaving you alone in darkness.

Night time yet again /starlight swallowed by black-hoes /Never to reach earth 

Monster under bed /Darkness engulfing my heart /Flashlight in closet 

Broken down body /Pieces still falling apart /Trying to survive 

Needed violence /Craving others' destruction /A bloody green-world 

Another world waits /To be drastically changed  /For better or for worst 

Take away my soul /A Genni in a bottle /Waiting for my hell 

Follow me right now /into the heart of her dream /To understand pain

What is my purpose /If no one recognizes /Who I truly am 

Where do I go from /A path lost in time and space /Path through destruction 

Do you give a damn /That people fall through the cracks /Life and sanity 

Where is your passion? /To afraid to make a change /Life requires life 

Wish upon a star /It falls from the black heavens /Death for a lost soul

Power to control /How the world spins around us /Orbiting people

Future behind us /Broken possibilities /Wondering what if

what inspires dreams / To quickly flee from our minds / Do they shape the soul? 

Do you know yourself? / Understand your heart and soul / Or did you give up?

My wondering thoughts/ foot steps past our minds limits/ into a new world 

Waiting for time's change / scared of what I will find there /What will be taken? 

Looking for details/ What secrets will they reveal?/ Our humanity 

He gave memories/ Remembering as her own/ Truth lost inside time 

Questions Propagate / What's inside Pandora's box / All of his secrets

Apple falls from tree / Down the rabbit hole it rolls / Mad Hater picks up 

Depression soaks in / Into my thoughts and body / Draining who I am

Stress stretches my soul / Rubber band about to break / Crashing into life 

Life flipped upside down/ World falling into pieces/ Some forever lost

How many lost dreams/ Are never fulfilled in life/ That could of been real? 

Where do I go now?/ Options retreating from me/ Left with destruction

Dishes Pile Up Once More

I sort bubbling dishes in proper place
I drown absorbed sink with soapy water and towering dishes 
They pile up-- what's the point of doing them?

I drown dishes and try my hardest to dry them without a drop
But what good would it do-- dishes pile up!

Martial Dances

We live in strange times, my brother 
men make money 
with war dances 
and occupation... 
Do you not see the bombardments 
and the pillaging? 
Under the boot 
you are worn out, 
these days 
the sweat of your brow 
no longer serves you! 
Tanks come from distant lands 
passing down your streets 
demanding to know 
why you were born! 
And you can say nothing. 
Soon, if this continues, 
it will be the course of progress 
to be denied learning. 
One speaks of the rights of man 
here and there. 
Do not believe those rumors! 
You see that nothing is in place now! 
We live in strange times my brother, 
arms dealing, 
construction 
governing the land. 
Is it so difficult to understand? 
They sell the merchandise of war! 
Come listen to my counsel. 
Don't marry, it is unsupportable 
to suffer the massacre of your children. 
The success of your affairs depends 
on producing fictitious enemies 
to menace... 
In this manner 
they take over small countries 
one after the other 
under the pretext of saving them. 
While you fight amongst yourselves 
others consume your underground resources. 
What should I tell you; 
do these times plant sorrow 
in your hearts? 
Be a little understanding! 
Increase the number of fratricidal wars, 
divide your people further 
to make the lives of the invaders easier. 
Do not forget that to destroy love 
requires only this: 
Live in a society without love 
and don't educate anyone... 
Live in the clarity of obscurity, 
depend only on yourself! 
The sun rises and sets on time... 
the throats of cocks are cut 
that sing before the hour! 
We live in strange times my brother, 
men make money with war dances 
and occupation... 
Do you not see the bombardments 
and the pillaging?

Foliage

Leaves swayed above the ground--
The elder branches
Released pure foliage

The young, dainty leaves 
With a sweet, mellow scent 

Leaves land on the damp floors--
The elder branches  
Released such squalid grief

Days and nights and the universe

Days and nights and the universe 
I
The musty monsoon 
insects with swelled bellies
soggy paper boats.
II
Curiosity 
a black feathered bird peeps in,
there is no return.
III
Close the eyes, its night.
A bat has taken a bite; 
the fruit rolls away. 
IV
The desolate rails.
Millions of butterflies, 
they reign the wild shrubs.
V
Crystallized water, 
this rock has witnessed years,
a fly has more eyes.

THE CITY WHICH IS INSIDE YOU

You live in your own inner city, which you bought in a 
silent auction.
You were again unable to cancel your debts.
Under your blackening eyelids you try to feel certain 
things.
Without noticing your withdrawal from self, you leave for 
distant parts
by using your ropes of thought like a ski-lift.
Your shudders increase as you touch the numberless elements.
In your screams at the moment when you feel the jolts 
from the echoes
of your words crossing the threshold of your thought,
you send birds fleeing before you. As you breathe, your 
roses wither.
In your moments of madness, crystals fall from your roof.
As your field of thought shrinks, your city expands. You 
exhaust yourself
from running down the streets and avenues.
As the lamps of your voltage machines alight upon your 
nights,
your humans robotize themselves.
The toads in your dirty waters frighten even the crocodiles.
Your inner journey makes you grow older.
Your internal cries amplify themselves.
You manifest difficulties with forty paws.
The auxiliary cells of your laboratories do not give you
the opportunity to live any pleasurable moments.
While the fear indicator inside you slackens you through 
and through, you 
have not
even the possibility of speaking. With each movement of 
the clock,
the seasons rip themselves out of your heart.
Your solitude traverses your spirit without cease.

The Hunter Has Become a Guide for the Birds

The hunter has become a guide for the birds,
his two faces
against two wings.

He has chopped down trees
to make a post
with small dried branches
for the birds to roost.

He has broken off flowers
to decorate this small tree
to cheer the birds.

He has put small stones
and large grains of wheat
on plates
so that the birds can eat.

He has constructed
posts with pencils
and towers with posts
from the ruins of the towers
so that the birds can take cover.

He has appended signatures,
each one different,
on dry leaves
with his two faces,
no one noticing.

After some time,
chasing the birds one by one,
he blows like a wind,
saying that judges and prosecutors
are his friends.

The birds, like many others,
quickly understand
and when the time is ripe
they emigrate
exchanging one thing for another,
finding another country,
agreeable people, trees,
grains of wheat on plates
and flowers of all colors...

while living peacefully there,
the hunter is of two faces
against two wings.

I wrote my poems with my heart

I wrote my poems
with my heart
I strolled abroad
With my manuscripts,
drew my expectations
into my drawings
The avalanche of suffering
crushes me. 

I put years
on my back,
stored secrets
in my memory
Often I could not end
trips... 

I was annoyed
by the hypocritical
before my eyes
The mothers gave birth
to tears
The orphans and the forlorn
distributed grief. 

I wrote my poems
with my heart
I strolled abroad
With my manuscripts,
drew my expectations
into my drawings
The avalanche of suffering
crushes me.

They Have Taken Their First Steps in My Heart

The pain first took hold of my wrists
In the heart within my heart
My sweet children
Took their first steps.
Rain drips on the windows
There is that which comes
From far away
With hands in handcuffs
I do not know the day or year of humanity...

Stars shine
Thanks to drops falling from trees
The moon springs tight a trap on my pessimism
For a night...

The pain first took hold of my wrists
In the heart within my heart
My sweet children
Took their first steps.

Shaping Tomorrows

They are sinking
In the multiplication tables
While growing older
In a lack of emotional resources...
The differences
Are unnoticeable
In mirrors...
These
They are nailed
To loneliness.
The seasons
Are unnoticeable in their hearts...
The years
Rotting
In their eyes
To them...
The revolution
Is not the result
Of the last few minutes
In their alphabet
There is a path
To curses.

THE SOUL

His legs tremble,
Standing: over the-mound of dust,
He does not see the past left behind
And strives to extinguish the brightly burning star Forgetting, 
that nearby A blue island floats in tears.
And a lingering restlessness sweeps past him.
He parries the  questions  of  the  present  Pricking him intermittently
Not seeing with the eyes
The glowing cinder under ashes
The tide is cheated by the foaming sea Which drowns it
And wandering in the forlorn cremation ground He is haunted by the shrieks Of  his bedeviled soul
A formless shadow knocks at his dormant mind. 
Nothing awakes but anguish Crushing the weary breath, He gasps and fumbles
With the rising crescendo of 
the inner agony, Which  pricks him
And is irredeemably absorbed in the body,
The wound remains green And on the lighted pyre not the body,
The bruised conscience burns.

Song of Awakening

Atheism wakes
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He calls it no God

Belief awakens
The world floods all his senses
Drenched gray newspaper

Earth closes its doors
Positivist hypercube
He sees light through cloud

And hope in the blood
Temptation a winding brook
In which we all bathe

Mosquito must prey
Or die, and die anyway
No simple answers

But how much wiser
Must we be than mosquito!
We can opt for faith!

Blood-red newspapers
A dove’s song stirs baby hymns
I choose to believe

Double Rainbow

The hard rain tap danced;
Quickly finishing the song,
Winds parted the clouds.

The bright setting sun
Painted a double rainbow
Conjoined by blue mist.

Its water colors
So vivid seemed tangible
Piercing through sky dust.

Amber rays mirrored
The bow in opposition
Foreshadowing night.

Yet, the very ends 
Of the arc I saw touched earth.
...felt I could find gold.
