FALL'S DEPARTURE




This long sojourn is

   prelude to fall's departure.

          On a river, clear…

             I hold blossoming jasmines 

and Mama's final ashes

Twilight


twilight fondles eyes

lifting her silhouette high

against lucid clouds--

flesh undressed beneath torn trees

drowning in pools of farewell



Tanka Written With  A Decent Pivot

Radiant Farewell




__


Within each sunbeam
shifting through the forest heights 
radiant prisms
traipse upon the tranquil path
melting the last Winter snow

Willow heart

A frog weeps at night
noisier than rustling leaves
The wavering heart
follows wherever the wind
blows as one frog weeps along

Garden's Beauty

Its charm, its bloom
A gift of spring breeze
Disappears fast
Something not oozing from heart
Something borrowed doesn’t last

Tainted memory Tanka

Sound of broken twigs
turned the ears of a lone wolf
Memoir of his ex
tainted his way to true love
sound of broken twigs -- She left

RAILS

nostalgia, farewell
RAILS © TANKA

Rails chewed up the land
Buffalo herds cease to roam
Down the railway track
Over hills, over dales gone  
‘Big Horns’ and ‘Buffalo Bills’!

Journey: Tanka Sequence

remembered lines
of poetry from youth
just pretty poems
the adjectives and  adverbs
hypnotizing my heart

the poetic spell
almost consuming my life
from houseman to frost
and back to shakespeare
and dying inside for truth

so simple and silent
devoid of actual words
so memorable
useless dreams of prized stuff
carried away by wind and stars

Soon I was looking
at real stars and mountain crests
without prettys rosy fins
looking really looking
without judgement try to be

System Overload

Darkness consumes me
Corrupted thoughts take over
Soul becomes hollow
Self castigation occurs
Tears of blood destroys all hope

jet stream

a dead gum tree burns
alone on the rusted hills
in your jet stream
threading a cerulean course
toward some obscure island

Apocalypse

All came to a stop;
Wintry ash fell to the ground
as the sky grew pale;
This is how things should have been -
I couldn't contain my smile.

THE NIGHT WILL ALWAYS COME

Trees swaying at night
Dark…with stars shimmering bright
Silhouettes of you
I hear the music inside
It has stopped and you are gone

the holy see

The Holy See 

Pope Benedict
Hands in his purple dress 
Fed up and tired 
Wonder if God in heaven 
Has not gone and retired too




Prejudices
Who will stand up
And defend the Christians 
A vanishing group 
In the sea of intolerant Islam 
Cowardly is our silence

White Lines In The Road

The white lines beckon Adventure around each bend The world awaits you Make sure to call your mother And remember the way home

Infinity

I'll remember you
Every time you made me laugh
Even the bad times
Stories will be told of us
You hold a place in my heart

Farewell

His last kiss; as his 
lips touched and sealed my eyelids
blinded me eternally.

When i meet my wife
And our child i'll start living and stop dying
