- Haiku X 62 - Deep Wounded -



    Deep wounds that leave scars
    One moment much more must flow
    Shadows from the soul

    Her tears in silence
    The strong arms that held her up
    In the thoughts and deeds

    Please do not grieve more
    And afterwards remember
    Pearls of morning’s dew

Pirate Bay

```Pirate Bay the Haiku``` 

pirates fierce and mean 
drowning fish, sea to sea 
parrots on their butt 


```Polly Wants A Cracker``` 

bloodthirst & brutal 
Quartermaster Gone Wild 
dirty wings on deck 


```Sea World Adventure``` 
ship crew goes on strike 
sailing the Caribbean 
wooden leg splashing

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

A Delicate Balance

Breathless and beguiled
 Nature blankets my lone dreams
   Swallowing me whole

Hush


            a limp hand I hold

as the wind takes your last breath
