 Big crocodiles lips
Wide hipopotomus hips....
From her paws blood drips

Waiting for the call



Cold and ghostly pale
awaits to be called home ...
date and day unknown

In Comma

Peaceful and relax
At rest but traverse freely
Altered consciousness

Will to access all
Suddenly achieve by thoughts
Radiating oneness

Empathy ignites
As parameters extend
Embrace love without.

A Promise dies as petals burn

You do not love me                                                                                  
Love is more than just a word                                                                
Thorns have reached their depth

Closed Door

the door has been closed
it has been bolted and locked
don't try the window

my heart is secure
your words are no longer "keys"
soul sanctuary

image is tarnished
no longer will I welcome
a fallen hero

NO FATHER'S DAY

he died in the war
no Daddy and no present
the child.. never born

*I grieve for the children, their joy and smiles, who will never be..
Because their future Daddy died in the war!

Remorse

As life fleets us by,
We can only reminisce:
About lost chances.

Right side numb Can't write

A gentle wind


Blows in from the east
Disturbing my thoughts and heart 
Concluding of life

..Till death do Us part...death remains...

Her  fourth  left finger
holds a polished gold band,
Rough is the inside.

Submerged you are beyond sight,
But you are still here.

The Death of my Cousin's wife, April 17th 2011

Zum Tod der Frau meines Cousins am 17. April 2011 / The Death of my Cousin's wife, April
17th 2011/ La muerte de la mujer de mi primo en abril 17 de 2011  (Kintaishi)


Ein ausgelöschtes Leben
Die Zeit vorweg genommen
Verschwimmende Gedanken 
Wie Bilder, die verblassen


An annihilated life
Anticipated  in time
And then almost blurring thoughts
Like some fading images


Una vida aniquilada
Anticipado en tiempo 
Borrosos pensamientos
Desvaneciendo imágenes

where the brave were laid
an eagle guards their bodies. . . .

Death-filled actions without heart
The day the world found out
