Lament in Haiku Form for a Dead Eraser

Today I did stab,
an eraser so white, pure,
it did bleed blue ink.

LARRY-HARRY(Limerick)

I once dated a man named Larry
He one day asked me to marry
Though he was a real honey
He hadn't much money
So, I wed his cousin Harry

Porpoise


This little tubby cousin 
Of the dolphins has no beak.

He’s very shy and talks, 
Not with a click, but with a sneezy squeak!

COUSIN prefers these new-fangled technologies; 
it's a tiny book stronghold.

The Okapi

I went to the Zoo and saw an Okapi,
Unlike the Hare, he did no hippity-hoppy.
But, like his cousin the Giraffe,
It truly had to make me laugh,
Its long tongue kept its ears from getting sloppy.

Call Me Cousin

I'm short and most costumes don't fit
Halloween found me in a snit
     But I have my answer now
     I just comb my long hair down
Add glasses and I'm Cousin It

Emma

Emma, where are you, where did you go 

You were sitting here by my side 

Then, all of a sudden gone 

We never had a chance 

To sing one more song 

Because you left 

Without a 

Goodbye 

Why?

Loving Hug (2005)

I had a dream of my cousin I love
Out of all my siblings she reaches well above
I’ve loved her since she was born
Distance has never torn
Last night I felt love in her hug
Warmth and captures in a loving snug

For Sheeto

BEES KNEES

Humble,bumble bee
One season's life,fly free

Working the summer scene
Unless crowned,as May Queen

Sometime cousin cuckoo,comes to stay
Her offspring eggs to lay

A nursemaid,then,Spring to Fall
'Til Winter's death knell,calls

The Yucca

                 Long slender blades, sort of a cactus, kissing cousin to a palm tree
                             Indians years ago, used to make soap from it
                         On our ranch in New Mexico, we called it "Soap Weed"

Comb Over

Z Z Top and Cousin It took the right approach
     Dark sun glasses and beards detract from scraggly hair
Next time my motley hairdo meets with reproach
     Combing forward I’ll consider, sparing the Nair

Short Cousin poem by hayley webb-myers| Details | |

On the spot 7

Flowers bright
Colours everywhere 
Cant help but stop
And soak in the fresh air.

Green trees 
All tall and proud
Bright big sun
In a sky with no clouds.

Birds chirping
Flying around the trees
Would be great
To be that free.

NO BOUNDARY

Let history be the guidelines of our time to remain united.
Our border in the region is only if we do not go visit our neighborhood.
There is no barrier.
We are in Nusantara will remain united.
There is no race and religion that could disunite us.

The Deep-Rooted-Tree

It never falls never drys,greens forever
Whenever it extends,it grows moreover
Our love is like that tree,greens forever
On the deep rooted tree,friends forever
Each bird sings fruitly ,And sends clever
Each leave drops water and rains lever
We runabout  as pilgrims every year

FORBIDDEN FRUIT

The hands that
do not reach for me,
are full of tenderness.

The eyes that
look deep into me,
find what has been hidden.

The lips that
cannot touch mine,
speak kind words.

The memory of
that special day,
always will stay.

The potential for
what could have been,
forbidden though it seems.

Our New Year's Resolution

 For thanksgiving mama went to rehab and my brother went to jail
 For Christmas Santa brought white jackets and bail
 So we decided to make a resolution
 Granny swore Christ would be our solution
 Then it came summer and my cousin married the preacher
 This year for our resolution I think we need a new teacher

Short Cousin poem by Phil Tyler| Details | |

Fraendi

The son of my father’s 
Sister came to visit.
By everyone else, he seemed quite a bother.
But to me, he wasn’t, couldn’t, isn’t;
He, like me, was often distant.
He wanted to look through my telescope at the stars,
but it was daytime - not where the stars are.
