I Miss You

.


I did not know you….

we became a family

in very small steps



                         I was very young...

                         you never overwhelmed me

                         with your eagerness



                                                                When my mother died

                                                                 you wrapped your arms around me...

                                                                 you became my own

Lovelier Than A Rose

Oh lovely rose song
Pressed in that book for so long
Music can't be wrong

Memories that stay
always recurring array
Learning how to pray

Thoughts engraved so deep
Everlasting pure, keep
Reminding of love

Oh that lovely rose
Pressed in that book that was closed
She lovingly chose

Memories that say
True love won't take her away
Momma I miss you

tolerance prescribed.

Honour each other
respect is earned not a gift...

Off duty Mum

Blurred, steamy mirror
Scarlet innocent faces
Clean, soap scented babes.

Fluffy pyjamas
Tales of elves and fairylands
Cuddles from cherubs.

Fight to stay awake
So not one adventure missed
Go play with your dreams.

Peek in, one last time
Gentle snores break the silence
Creep out, tiptoe down.

Hot cocoa, slippers
Claim control of the remote
My job as Mum, done.

Morning Rituals

Waiting anxiously, Old Red hovers by the door… Mother Nature calls The dew on the grass is soaking my slippered feet… I drink in the news Rising from my cup, white steam fogs up my glasses…. Sun breaks through the dawn A neighbor jogging, waves with enthusiasm…. I step on the scales A song from upstairs, off key, yet operatic…. I can hear his mood Wafting up the stairs, I send some encouragement….

With a beauty all their own.
They are my children.

While never tiring,
They seem to go on and on.
Exasperating!

Their energy flows,
Keeping them going all day,
Until evening comes.

Now, the Moon shines bright.
The children still cannot rest.
They must go to sleep!

Well, do we trust God?

me? Psalms 56:4

Eyes Playing Tricks (Senryu Trilogy)

A slender black spot
On my bedroom door at night
Became a crawler.

Around the carport,
Up and down the hall peeking,
The lightning man ran.

Hideous tree men...
Shadows like bad guys reaching...
Monsters imagined.

When God Created Me

my mom used to say…
there was an Angel, watching
when God created me

I did believe her… 
about the Angel, watching
me, since I was kid

and, I did love you… 
oh, my Angel, for watching
life was full of joy

now, I hate you…
suddenly you stopped, watching
me, after ten years

you left me alone…
on blissful day, not watching
the eagle of prey

the eagle of prey…
on my youth, you stopped watching
and, what have I done?

many years passed by…
alone, and no one’s watching
tears never run dry

over three decades…
on sinful life, who’s watching?
me, I’m cruel and sad

but, I learned something…
be brave, when no one’s watching
you live in this world

living, for today…
tomorrow, I’ll be watching  
my son sleeps, with peace

my mom did not say…
not only Angel, watching
when God created me

when God created me…
Angel and Devil, watching
and, I wonder….why?

Rich and Righteous

Abraham, father
Of many sons, God-made rich
With faith, fields and funds

God's extravagance given
For childlike request

Job, the richest man
Lost it all, prayed for his friends
God doubled his wealth


No contradiction of terms
