Dilemma

(This haiku isn't in the ancient hokku form).

Indecisive mind
divided feelings
state of no response

.........................................
Coming and going 
spell out your real heart
the miss confusion

.........................................
Wandering brain
from house to house
where is thy root?

........................................
Like end of the road
walking away legs
heart still in love.

Farmer's cradle

Farmer plowed the soil
In green field’s
Sow grow in fruity
Duty is finished
Finally he will sound sleep—

HAIKUVERSE HARVEST

January juxtapose
More cold now
Beyond hot heat!


Cold cold air
Windy surprise;
Minus heat therapy?


Winding way whirls
Shiver seeding shiver
January jostling juice


Lotus sunbathe --
Muddy pond flavours
Mid-afternoon glare


Misdirected
Whim and fancy;
Windy detours


New year in late January,
Oozing days forfeit;
Scent of the times!


Why do I
Reason with reason;
To justify nothing


Wind chimes 
Breezy orchestra
Sparrow salute


Stillness
Silence sways calmly;
Usher enlightenment?


Haiku
Hokku
How To?


Vivid wonder
In nothing new;
Only fresh eyes


One by one
Images flash by;
Like old friends


Memory swirls
Round and round;
Circles to devour!


My darling dearest
Sleep-talking again;
Smiles pay tokens


So many curves:
Drop-dead gorgeous;
No time to sip!


Deep deep dark
Catch curvy craze
Sense stillness shout



No need for nice,
Just pay the price;
Indulge sheer surprise!


Here by
Lovely, lonely shore
No one but me!


New expressway
Halting jam frustration;
Missing clear detour!


When I speak
Words do not come;
Silence stays


Happiness:
Fleeting dry ice,
Carbon dioxide complex


Sublime
Subdued
Sensations


Glow in your eyes
Hint of sexy ideas --
Measured in your smile!


Love looks lovely
Rain running rowdy
Sheer shifting sights


Splendour courts,
Grandeur tiptoes ,
Silence succumbs


Igloo atmosphere
Air-con ice cold
Shivering skin tones


Tales awaiting
Weary bones;
Fireside conversations


Nature nurtures
Quaint restraint;
Silence raptures haiku


Sanguine rapture,
Observe the scenario;
Can you see now?


Pulse of new morning
Glow in your eyes;
Heart to heart


Moon glow
Aqua aura
Familiar wink


Somnolence
Scattering sensations
Swift spread sweetening


Slow morning edging
Indulgent
Indulgence


Wake-up call
Early morning darkness
Drowsy in dim light


Fumbling footsteps
Pre-dawn precursor
Tentative waiting

Drowsy
Dreamy
Discovery


Oil painting self-talk
Kostabi's  imagery
Passageway decor


Mind the view
Pending rapture
In-transit here


Feelings surge
Raw word fumbling
Echoes in reprieve


Listen
The wind calls
Whispers your name


Look to your self
As best you can;
Then understand


When and where
And how and why
Say who and what


Frozen time
Thaws to water
Down the drain


Time equals life
Oozing away
Does it matter?


Love plays
A game;
Only fools smile gleefully!

Summertime - The Japanese Hotan Style

~Summertime~
(Hotan)


It's summertime again
Folks are so happy is here
Spring is really gone now
Weathers hot
Some people enjoy
Others not
Temperature soar
Time to have some fun outdoors
Or relax inside.

Books Are Really Awesome - The Hotan Style

Books Are Really Awesome~
(Hotan)


Books are just awesome
They open so many doors
With books we can learn a lot
We can travel
To places near or far

They are very good friends.
