- Haiku X 64 - Into Empty Space -



The graceful ballet
My work almost completed
The gloomy gray sky

Explore your shadows
Allow yourself to feel joy
Fear of loneliness

Tears Like Wild-Fires

Tears Like Wild-Fires


Fallen tears flow on
Like wild-fires on my wet face
As I sit waiting

Silence

Silence can deceive                                        
One's quiet to understand
Another to destroy

Cold, Flexible Steel

A serial of haikus, all addressing the same topic with 
a hint of humor; but advice that could save your life
or that of a loved one.  New to PoetrySoup, so I hope 
I'm not "out of order" with this submission or topic. 


Cold, flexible steel
Probing my dignity...
Colonoscopy.

This “simple” exam
“…could prevent cancer.” they say.
Colonoscopy.

We all have to die,
But not from colon cancer.
Colonoscopy.

There's a downside tho’.
“Yuk! That, nasty brown liquid.”
Colonoscopy.

“But boy, does it work...
Work and work and work some more. 
Colonoscopy.

Baring your buttocks...
In a fetal position;
Colonoscopy. 

“No polyps", they say.
There are no malignancies.
Colonoscopy.

Your colon’s okay.
It’s five years until your next...
Colonoscopy.

Want some peace of mind?
Insurance may pay for it.
Colonoscopy. 

One “simple” exam
Can provide that peace of mind.
Colonoscopy.

You might save your life.
Over 45?  Do it!
Colonoscopy.

Cold, flexible steel.
On the other hand, what if…
Something else kills you?

a haiku string

Last Rites

a bad man
he could never be ...
circumstance

blessed virgin 

wrong place
at the wrong time ...
justice prevailes

sweet mother of Christ                                                                                 

I stare 
between the bars
snowey peaks
reveling in beauty
I seek inner calm

help him find what he needs

tight straps
brace against my chin
quickly a jolt  
a young reporter cries,
his angst bringing tears

let not him weep in vain

eyes blink
and a life is gone
such is man

amen, amen and again

I looked 
through the bars
snow still falls

Yet he lets bad things happen
