LATE OCTOBER HAIKU

LATE AUTUMN HAIKU

they’re almost gone now
how brown, bare the branches look
some toys in the leaves

when rain turns to snow
how sad those two last roses
brave faces with tears

apples      bruised apples
scattered on the frosted green
and this twiggy frown

music in the wind
late october’s final song
dancing red and gold

talk of winter now
old dog by a crackling fire
shutters rattle      pings!

photo of dear dad
he loved that fulsome willow
fallen leaves      marker

Living Seasons Through

Bodies together
Pressed against the cold, harsh night
We hold on to love

In the sweet, soft spring
We lay on a tall, steep hill
And hold on to love

Summer's baking heat
Hiding in the shade of trees
Still holding our love

The leaves are falling
Crunching beneath our footsteps
Forever, our love

We'll last through seasons
Enjoy our love together
Just you wait, my love.

Welcome Spring

through the open door
across my room sunlight spills. . . .
Robin Redbreast trills

the scent of blossoms
carried on April’s warm breeze. . . . 
our first hummingbird

among red flowers
where my daughter twirls her skirt . . . . 
a butterfly flits

in late afternoon
laughing in our garden spot. . . . 
we spy a bluebird

Masks (of Hallowen)

Darkness uttermost
Howl gobblins, gooks, grinch and ghost
Dripping touch of night

Blood like curdled light
Candle tears, white serpents hiss
Shadowing the mist

Hell has broken free
Behind the masked jubilee
Of death's silent screams

Rats, pumpkins, dead dreams
In dried fairytales of leaves
Mark, our prank deceives

The shuddering knife
Not again, jack ripped his heart
With pale piper's fife.

Not heaven nor art
The cold merriment, a wheeze
Of dark wintry breeze.

thirst quenched

I roll up my jeans

my breath
silenced by cold water...
blue feet with red nails

reaching the meadow
discomfort is forgotten...
blisters on my heel

sneezing
from wildflower pollen....
flannel sleeve hanky

wildflowers 
reflect on sunglasses...

A Symbol Of Spring's Resurrection

cold February's rain saturates the good earth... star magnolia blooms
A symbol of spring's resurrection are those early blossoms. The Daffodils spring up under the bright yellow Forsythia and beautiful pink tulip shaped flowers cover the Japanese Magnolia..Resurrection stated in the most subtle way. They say to me there is hope that the sun will soon warm the earth's soil signaling to all of nature to come alive.
red buds glow decorating the roadside... heavy fog cloaks all
Spring's presence can be unobtrusive slipping in like a lamb. One day it is winter then a heady essence wafts on a zephyr that aroma of pale lavender Wisteria announcing spring has sprung. Sponsor: Debbie Guzzi Contest: Spring Haibun red buds glow(verb)

Autumn's Harvest

In Spring

Driving home from work, I watch the darkening sky and the trees along the streets bending in the wind. Big drops of rain begin to splatter against my windshield until suddenly, my entire car is being bombarded. As the moaning wind picks up, the downpour increases and I adjust my windshield wipers accordingly. Nearing my neighborhood, I glimpse a foretoken of spring.

behind their mother
young quail scurry in a row. . . 
March winds scatter rain

Soon I am pulling into my driveway, wondering vaguely where the baby quail were bound for and relieved to be escaping the onslaught of cold wind-tossed rain. My spirit has been lifted by the sighting of the quail family, for I know better days are ahead. . . 

A few weeks pass, and I find myself becoming excited as I always do after April has arrived. I begin noticing the various plants and trees of my small city, in particular, the burgeoning buds of my own front yard  pear tree, and then at last it happens; I awake one fine morning to my favorite augur of the season:

outside my window
myriads of white blossoms. . . 
the trill of birds

THE LANDSCAPE'S STILLNESS

Discolored meadow
overtaken by swollen clouds,
comfort the wild tree...


Are there blue mountains
beyond the unfrequented prairie?
Find the horizon...


No cowboys on horses; 
no coffee brewing on logs,
while they are singing...


Late Fall scenery,
not yet conquered by deep snow,
make this day dazzle...


Hungry spiders crawl
with a despised, changeless pace;
the coyotes howl... 


Frightened by those sounds,
I feed more logs to the fire,
to shun strange vibes...


Seeing that sun blaze 
over the landscape's stillness,
I begin to dream...

Autumn Leaves

When autumn leaves fall
    burst of colors red and gold
         drifting in the wind

    Leaves of gold and red
        wrinkled,burnt, kissed by the sun
             leaves a memory

mystique silence across skies

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

Halloween Haiku

Suburban parade:
A night to transform yourself,

Pillowcases wear make up-
Wrappers and trinkets.

Mouth with one neglected tooth-
The jack-o-lantern.

Tiny water drops
Green buds appearing on trees.
Springs fresh warming breeze.

Clear skies always blue,
Flowery meadows so gay,
Makes for summer play.

Awesome windy days,
Air that smells so clean and pure

Crystal colored snow
Breathing the frosty night air,
Winter has such flair.

Quiet midnight stroll
Footprints vanish instantly 
From silver pathways

Opalescent lights
A thousand diamonds clinging
To frosted branches

Tiny clouds of breath 
Mingling with chimney smoke
Stars peek through the haze

Candlelit windows
Incandescent pools of light
Banish blue shadows 
 
Slumbering houses 
Silent streets tucked into night
With blankets of snow.

Wearing black cape with shadows
Two fangs from my jowls

**I wrote against traditional 5 -7-5 and twisted to 7-5-7 on these...can I do that?**

1.
Looking up in the sky at 
A full harvest moon 
Cool, aglow this autumn night

2.
Mists circle in, surrounding 
Earth's last summer song 
Warm nights are now memories

3.
The Hunter calls the Chosen
To this sacred grove 
Children of seasons gather

4.
The leaves--brown and gold and red 
Signify the end 
Of summer's warmth and passion

5.
Souls are drawn within, waiting 
Keeping close to home 
Till winter's dying cycle

A Season In The Sun

A Season In The Sun

Yellowed leaf hang limp
on a branch of the oak tree
its season has passed

It's time for goodbye
soon it will drift in the wind
and fall to the ground

In sweet surrender
letting go in acceptance
the cycle of life

Life spent and well lived
in its season in the sun
through the high and low

embraced by nature
in all its temperament
that constantly change

The coldness of wind
the sweetness of rain pouring
the warmth of the sun

All have taught the leaf
lessons to be learned in life
to live in fullness

To gracefully bear
life in its adversities
in sadness and pain

To always be giving
in its time of abundance
to those who may need

And enjoy its blessings
its glorious days and moments
in all its season

Buffet of Flowers

young hummingbird bush
has yet to bloom – still they fly…
     taste of spring in the air

sweet nectar is sipped
from the daffodil trumpets…
     wings fluttering fast

irises in sight
colorful birds visit them…
     bellies still not full

azaleas call out
the hummingbirds last retreat…
     satisfied, they nest

Three Humorous Senryu 

If winter landscape 
Had snow that was black as coal 
It would still be cold 

If sunlight was green 
Shining on crimson nature 
It would still be hot. 

If rain was yellow 
Running like horse piss in streets 
It would still be wet.

Anthem

- Truth
Remember the truth,
Question those in government…
In full glory reflected.

- Mistake
To war is error,
To offer peace is sublime…
Bombs bursting in air.

- Belief
No matter how hard,
Stand up for what you believe…
O! say can you see.

- Responsibility
I love my country,
Like baseball and apple pie…
The home of the brave.

...(Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer)

DECEMBER

1
Lights stab night
Cocks call day
Snakes hide.

2
Sun hates sleep
Winds roam dry
Lips crack.

3
Air wears dust
Eyes lose tears
Streams dry.

4
Trees hate leaves
Shrubs choose death
Fires rage.

5
Dark strikes day
Bugs praise night
Doves roost.

HAIKU ONE

radiating sun
across clear tranquil blue skies
tree buds' petals warmth

hopping frogs capture
the first of blood sucking louse
plums dropwart blossoms

lips grin at the sound
from a rumbling waterfall
raw freshness afloats

skirting the valley
sprawls a field of wildflowers
butterflies sweet bed

Side of street, melting
A rivulet to a drain
Swallows the glitter

Of shiny light spread
Over where there are footsteps
And breath is humbled

By the gushing splash
Of the giant yellow white trucks
That sweep the debris

FIVE SEASONAL HAIKU

FIVE SEASONAL HAIKU

frozen is the moon
every star an icy tear
odd sort of beauty

frost nipped the pumpkin
charmed us all but never left
strange jack-o-lantern

hear their forlorn howl
misting muzzles raised on high
cruel winter’s heralds

sitting by the hearth
old dog asleep and dreaming
hot wood fire crackling

mantel clock    tick tock
two mice in breadbox eating
i without a care

WINTER MUSING

WINTER MUSING

at first just the few
they swirl – separate each one
flakes of driven snow

melt before they touch
as though the ground is still warm
as though in combat

high barren branches look down
on fallen offspring turned brown
the yield reluctant

stark that twiggy waste
a world of gray sky exposed
poor earth like a tomb

i can’t but wonder
exactly where it began
winter’s sickly frown?

I am You are We are One

I'm going to cry
Your going to laugh
who actually win in this game of tag?
is there a candy man is there a  boogeyman?
I'm laughing 
Your crying
who going to catch the ball of time?
who going to catch the rain as they fall as tears?
I am silent
You are loud
what does music sound like to you?
where is the dance of life going for us?
I am loud 
You are silent
what does this mean to feel?
isn't love nothing more than a illusion?
Now what shall we do?...We are now both Sleeping?

A Farmer's Fear

A farmer ponders
about the hardness of life
that demands a lot

a dry and parched land
where nothing can grow and live
brings worry and fear

to a man like him
that thrives and lives on farming
it is saddening.

drought is too costly
it sucks and dries everything
land becomes barren


little child at home
is waiting, hungry for food
what is there to do

nature has its time
it has its season to share
and withhold its gifts.

man is wondering
why life changes its season
and brings misery

Spring Versus Autumn by Robert and Vienna

the ice is melting in the streams through the meadow where new growth appears fragrant hyacinths push their way up from the ground to meet the spring sun some bright pink blossoms are budding in the branches of a cherry tree. some yellow tulips and yellow honeysuckles mimic the sunshine birds are coming back from their dwellings in the south where they spend winter there’s a sky of blue life spawns in every hue colorful season tiny leaves are falling a cold September morning time is slowing down freshly cut flowers arranged in crystal vase by the bay window the willow trees are acknowledging their season coming to an end red brick leaves mimic autumn's colors rich to dark a chocolate bird sings landing on a wire he recalls a summer flight huddled in the cold painted skies are grey life is about to unfold winters wake up call

Spring Into Haiku

buds and bloom pop up on the forage of the earth... after wintry rest. spring is recognized much earlier not by men.... but by plants sooner. so many people are out smelling the flowers... hope some planting them.

Dream Season

spring dream
a rooster stirs the stillness
into dawn
 
calmness . . .
jogging into
the spring dawn
 
hot spring bath –
the nibbling fish
tingle my skin
 
waterfall
I photograph
its mist of spring
 
train pane mist
she rubs on
the other side
 
spring rain
the scent of green in
the dawn breeze
 
february full moon
the beach tides deepen
the voice of children
 
spring moon
the scent of jasmine
spreading in the night

Jack Frost's premiere of the year

Jack Frost's premiere of the year

with his cold fingers
tapping on my warm shoulders 
Jack Frost woke me up

his first early frost
under a glamorous sky
sunrise chases cold

most delicate ice 
edges of  tiny puddles
vanish in backlight 

The Queen of summer
conquered her fresh luscious world
in full colored warmth

Autumn will message
seal all fertile grounds of growth
in glorious gold

Spring's performances
will shamelessly show off
the circle of life

Natural Way

Nature’s way performs
Bountiful and courageous
Beyond forever

Sometimes a delight
Others destructive design
Her choice always stands

Mankind may alter
She has the complete last word
Femininity 

Father times advice
Allowed in little broadness
Rippled subtleness

Serendipity
Plays out spreading the balance
That’s natural way

Haiku

 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 HAIKU; MEMORIES AND OBSERVATIONS and EXERCISES


 Archery
 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.

 First

 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Alone

 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.


 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.



 Memory

 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.



 Memory 

 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.



 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.


 Exercise I


 Diagonally
 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.


 Exercise II

 Vociferously,
 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.


 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 Incompatibility.
 He had to learn it.


 All his writing was
 autobiographical.
 He was egocentric.


 SEASONS

 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.


 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 Synch

 Summer. I feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

Parting

Parting 

Spring

Stay, see the blossom
Promising bountiful fruit.
Pick cherries with me.

Summer

Musk roses heady scent.
Diamonds in a velvet sky.
Warm love in Summer.

Autumn

The smell of wood smoke,
A bonfire of promises,
Hopes, dreams, drift - gone.

Winter

He left in Winter,
Snow covering his footprints,
Ice gripping my heart.

Seasons of Love

Autumn has started.
Yellow leaves found their way home
to each other’s warmth.

Then, there was Winter.
Embraced the foliage, coldly,
freezing the lovers.

Thereafter was Spring.
Rainfall began to descend,
drowning the floras.

And last, was Summer.
Ending the fourfold seasons
for the two of us…

Somnolence


Well-fed bout
Too much food;
Sleepy convulsions

Drowsy excursions;
Dreamy ESP


Chatter in slow motion
Awareness in decline;
Afternoon nap


Rapid express
Snoring sensations;
Roomy context

Figures tumble;
Sleepy exposure


Painful waiting time
Dental appointment;
Fatal extraction!


So many things
Left unsaid;
Good conversation


Drowsy listening
After lunch break;
Learners half asleep


Crowded space
Edgy moods prowl;
Silent rage sparks


Extra dry drought
Wild fires burn;
Smoke and ashes


Take a walk
Make some small talk;
Stiff indifference


Crowded street
Lonely faces;
Anxiety engineers


Busy footsteps
Crowded mall;
Noise pollution


Brief glance
Beauty meets beast;
Bar stool permutation


By crowded footpath
Old cripple cries:
Help me, buy tissues!


Day time escapades
Sunday morning jog;
People street hog

Fall of pride
Power failed
And La Luna smugly smiles
Fear of the king gone.

The waking sunrise.
The songsters upon pine boughs;
Ah! Spring's morning song.

Driving to work

- Good Morning
Fresh coffee and toast,
Scraping ice from the window…
Will it start today?

- On My Way
Slowly, like a moth,
Coming out of its cocoon…
Damn!  Forgot my lunch.

- Detour
Traffic slowing down,
Smoke, fire, screaming, ambulance…
Better him than me.

- Relief
Now I’m running late,
Hope I find a parking space…
Life is short, slow down.

A Haiku Sextet

Losing her, a dream,
winter ravaged my
soul.
The snowman melts.

Solitary bird,
why sing you only of
spring
outside my window?

I stole a flower
from nature's bed,
bottled it.
Now it is dying.

The crunch of brown
leaves
tells me nothing
whatsoever
about decay, death.

It is November--
but the air forgets
that as
it dances spring.

Winter is most real,
fall most sad,
summer holy,
but spring is a
dream.

STUMBLING UPON A POND

I spotted two frogs
jump from a green lily-pad,
but sadly they drowned.


I pulled them out...while
the others croaked and
left the rippling, gloomy pound.

Faces

- Recognition
Up in the night sky,
A face, with two gleaming eyes…
Cold like a glacier.

- Laughing
It’s our inside joke,
Tiny bubbles in the pool…
Fresh rain on the ground.

- Languid
Faces in moon light,
Satellites cross the night sky…
It’s warm, go swimming.

- Again
Like a falling star,
Gleaming tear-drops on my face…
Dew in the morning.

At becoming best of friends…
Care free in our youth.

we were like leaves on the wind…
I surely missed you.

The familiarity…
Is what I miss most.

It’s been a long time,
Since I’ve seen you ’round the block…
No need to explain.

Sprouting the bloom of new life
The lamb lies nearby

Summer begins soon-
Warmth to firm the sagging land,
Earth renews its hold

The heat touching me-
Thaws me inside-opening
Pleasure's smiling lips

Listening to sounds-
Music stirs the dancing heart,
Beating tuned sublime

What cost will be paid-
Love's temptations, all but spent?
Warm thoughts will return.

Working out

- Breaking Habits
A journey begins,
Over the bridge from the South...
It is not to late.

- Pain
Such exquisite pain,
Wanting, there is no pity...
In the depths of hell.

- Brother in arms
Fraternal embrace,
Each one is for the other...
For the love of life.

- Lessons learned
Old remedies told,
Lubricating body and mind...
True strength from within.

Renewal of faith begins…

SPRING'S DELIGHTS

Butterflies announce
spring and make every kid dance;
the distant sun winks!

The swift, buzzing bees
seek all delectable  flowers;
inside lies their choice!

Bright and colorful
is the rainbow in the noon;
see how my roses bloom!

All dandelions sway...
and their yellow petals stray,
dawdling in the day!

Dawn is a true delight,
more breath-taking is sunset;
breath to feel its depth!

Fly, kite on light breeze;
I won't let go of my string...
be bold and gather speed!

Tireless star-gazer,
sit by the quietest river...
and await rapture!
