AHA HAIKU 8

(Dedication: For my PoetrySoup friend, Lenny Gazbowski) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Cozy comfort Silky bed linen; Somnolence sums ~~~~~~~~~ Humid heat wave Hot sticky sweat; Fatigue brines ~~~~~~~~~ Thought in deep sway Philosophy flings; Wit sums humour ~~~~~~~~~ Love the first-cause Life dances brisk; Symbiosis ~~~~~~~~~ Start here Live now; Death sums ~~~~~~~~~ In this moment Eternity hurls; All-in bet ~~~~~~~~~ Too late now Old man yearns; Death's one leg in ~~~~~~~~~ Waiting time Long clinic queue; Off-flavour faces ~~~~~~~~~ Smiling old man limps Terrier runs around; Barking commands ~~~~~~~~~ Morning repast Make smiles curl; Silent conversations ~~~~~~~~~ Less talk is more Everyone agrees; Loud chatter boxes ~~~~~~~~~ Bamboo saplings Promises to keep; Haiku moments ~~~~~~~~~ Being blooms Becoming grooms; Now empty room! ~~~~~~~~~ Zen garden moods Configured space; Meditative ~~~~~~~~~~ Old man stares Moon struck smiles; Soliloquy ~~~~~~~~~ In my dreams Mother smiles; Father sips beer ~~~~~~~~~ Heart thinks Mind feels Cross over well ~~~~~~~~~ Green grass verge Floral beauty hides; Unseen glamour ~~~~~~~~~ Leon Enriquez 25 May 2016 Singapore

Dear Lenny: In my view, you deserve this small gesture. All the more, if you have not received such a dedication. Glad you are delighted my friend. And "Thank you" for your kind comments all this while. All the best then, Leon.
