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]

Fading Grandeur

Silken veil slides

Over Gaia's solemn brow

Her grandeur fading



Looks like I was too late to enter Raul's Rhythm of the Falls Contest, though the picture
inspired this haiku

Unwary sailors regret
Thar mate has been swept

only foolish men
let their nation plummet, with

Autumn

A wisp of white cloud
On a breeze, that cools the land
Autumn is soon here

Among the Seashells

Forlorn, forgotten;
do tears still exist
at the bottom of the sea?

Abrupt

Sleeping in sorrow
If I don't wake tomorrow
Then all will be well.

Of a Lost Love

          Racing- against time,
Her breasts- pressed against her lungs.
                    Lateness- vanished him.

Once Upon a Dark Fog

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

The Fire Hydrant

Ghetto dreams, ponder
Broke hydrant, cement
Only leaking tears

The Internet: Return

A void of Facebook
Creativity dies here...
Procrastination!

A Farmer's Tale

pale silken strands sway
tickling the warm breezy air
honey wheat wands dance

prosperity flows
nourishing life on the farm
drought came and all died

Passing...

  Screams above the din

A moment of grief and loss

    A loved one passes


Details | Haiku | |

raindrops on paper

soul fills up,
overflows...
rain streaks down my cheeks

brightness blinds my world
darkness cloaks and chokes me up...
heaven's tears soothe me

angry skies flash teeth
wind wailing its frustrations--
drenching rain drowns soul

black and red rain
hateful words, scorching wrath boils 
daggers on paper

each word stings eyes, heart
pen takes a stab, then twists hard
raindrops on paper

Black smoke covers all

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

Haikus About God: V

Omniscient guy
Yet he lets bad things happen
How can he exist?

Nature the Destroyer

a blackness now looms
funnelled vortex shows anger 
nearer, we now wait

daylight to night-time
shadows of spewing debris
devastation rules

aftermath now in view
nuclear surround springs to mind
regeneration
