Brokeback Mountain

(The Movie) 

eyes dart with red
black, white and sepia hue
the horse slows behind

selfish cotton hide
lust, under the pale moonlight
rustic underwear

Hearts not meant to be
A mountain covered with dust
Orion's chap- stick

Plunging, campfire
Temptations broken wall
Cowboy makes his mark

high school love

we offered our hearts
       eagerly sketched in wet sand....
             entwined initials
whispered in the wind
        promises too young to keep…
            first kiss at sunset
a chill from the sea…
        such fragile love would vanish 
            in a wave of tears          

For Linda Marie's "Sentimental Senryu" contest

A heart divided
Hurt knows no bounds anymore
Only time will tell

Washed Away

That new wave of love......

Pop the silver orb
Moon drops splashed upon your wrist
Goodbye on your lips...

The Dry Rose That Never Fades


                                  pressed Rose from first spring
                                  in pages of book to read 
                                  ...without mascara

Just in case it's not obvious: Spring!

to depart from me!

                                                        Two hearts ripped apart..
                                                With just a one threaded string left..
                                                            Still only one beat..

    me appreciate today..

One's whole world changes
when you lose the one you love,

Word power

Lighter than dry leaves
the capacity to burn;
held in what you say.

A Spring to Summer Romance

he was not my type
but by the time it was spring
i wore that man's ring

once he wore me down
i flowered in the garden
of his sweet attentiveness
but began to droop
in the absence of his care. . . . 
July’s drought was hard to bear

that ring he gave me -
cheap like his lackluster love -
broke in mid-august

Frosted Candle...


                                The Fire dies slowly

                         and the matchstick wets its flint

                                 Igniting no flame.

Death of the Bride of a Frankenstein

His lovely monster

Stitched and gilded fell apart

From his staunch patterns

Details | Senryu | |



unfinished phrases
        hanging on throats of pained love  `  `  ` 
                      distant mouths silent

black winds bite
     empty endings spill
           in sewers,
               old vows wilt
                        dissolving life's tenderness ` ` `
                             hearts sliced in rough stone

rainfall parts breaths
             ravens wearing dying  cloaks ` ` `
                        pale stardusts, farewell

No Comfort

but memories don’t comfort

salt in the wound

as fog falls,as dreams end

a careless shadow
