Dawn comes
On the silk route;
Sun sparkles

Tour trip explores
Vistas of China;
Old and new transits

So much to see:
Lovely landscapes;
Crowded cities morphing

Words in my journal,
Thoughts on my journey;
Miracles and mysteries

Mötley tourist crowd
Eagerly guzzling down
All things China in spring rain

We take our time,
Explore the edges;
Collect instant memories

My darling translates
Classical Chinese tongue:
Basic English field trip!

Beauty in nuances
Cryptic language profound:
Where the Middle Kingdom reigns

Memories on record,
Thought distiller in word motifs;
Celebrate and anchor

Eventful sojourn,
Spring sensations --
Mystic revelations

Just the other day,
My darling said to me:
Take another China trip?

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

My Singapore, My Hearth, My Home

A blend of two worlds,
Mix of city and suburb,
Sprawling with tourists.

Five stars arising,
A crescent moon endorsing,
Red and white unite.

A tiny country,
On its own--- Independent,
Gallant, strong and free.

Living in justice,
Four races in harmony,
Walking hand in hand.

A broth of beauty,
Yes, this is my Singapore,
Yes, my hearth, my home.

Victoria Anderson-Throop
Nairobi, Kenya
November 26, 2012

Note: Political unrest near Nairobi, Kenya due to election strategies. Polish nun told me that she was warned by a local moonshine runner to hide. Too late. She was pistol whipped by local police who wanted more protection money. Didn’t get the money (it was a free clinic, so nurses had no money) Police beat the nurse/nuns and absconded with the very rare and precious AIDS meds to sell to the hospitals.Free AIDS clinic was forced to close.(Kenyan government does not have free health care for the poor)   Nuns are recovering then being transferred to other clinics. Three went back to Europe forced into early medical retirement due to permanent injuries sustained by police and/looters. The care program(education and/or placement) for the children whose parents were AIDS patients is gone. Children have taken to the streets in desperation.  Count your blessings.

What People Were and What People Are

People were
Many things.
Strange or not

People were
Different and
Odd and fun.

People were
Monsters but…
That’s not all

People were
And still are
Strange and odd.

People are
People. For
life is life. 

Yet not.
Not is lies.
Truth seeps from

Every mouth
Lies, lies, lies
Move, move, move

But somehow
Lies prevail.
Lies are life.

Lies are death.
Lies are homes.
Lies are pain.

Lies are truth.
Yet somehow.
Truth prevails.

Truth is life.
Truth is death.
Truth is home.

Truth is pain.
Truth is lie.
Truth is that.

Lies will die.
Lies will cease.

Truth will live.
Truth will be.

This Land is My Land

Pastoral country
Where folks wave to passers by--
Farmers plowing

Exit 386
Wal-Mart, fast foods, and hotels-- 
Tourists stop

Modern businesses
Of every type one might need--
The short road to town

Refurbished storefronts
With arts antiques and barbers--
Downtown businesses

Houses big and small
Fill the local neighborhoods--
Quiet streets

State Parks, music fests
And neighborhood barbeques --

Outside of town
Beautiful farms and woodlands--
The rural folks

The river rises
Bringing water to my land --
Children in kayaks

The home of brave hearts
Who understand nature’s way --
King and rattlesnakes

The home of the free
Where people are seen smiling--
Live Oak, Florida

Just one scary night in fall
Bats bit my isthmus

I changed my figure
Wearing black cape with shadows
Two fangs from my jowls

This tale of that night
Secures Halloweens darkness
My solemn visit

Only at night I sojourn
Seeking blood delight

This Halloween time
I seek more than blood request
Poetry inquest

To live once again
In daylight and be set free
Normal mortal me

With strong hands resting
on sharp rocks, I stare afar
intrigued by silence...

I seem disenchanted
by what reality conveys
through its mystery... 

Fear is a lament, 
a remote voice never heard;
a lark's joyless shrill...

waits birth of brand new morning…

silhouetted palms

wave windblown fronds in alarm…

sun singes the bay


the early morning

wears a lavender halo…

on moss-covered rocks, breaking

Greener Grass

Black cow in green field
One eye to sky, one on ground
Through rusty red gate

Knelt with neck sideways
Reaching extending pink tongue 
For tall greener grass

Glittering Light

Flashes across the dark sky
Bolts of lightning shrieks

                       chameleon blends in.

watching shallow river flows,
two birds on the ground

Barren paths to tread
You think the world is a dream
In this tacit place.

cracking the edge of our life,
