By the Brook

These winter mornings
Your love in a cup of tea
Warm poems in eyes

These soft golden touch
Birds are abundant in thought
For wings from your sun

Sun will soon get harsh
Come and sit with the warm tea
Let's make the lyrics

With you in the rhyme
The crimson struggle for wine
Smiles in white and blue

Till the dew glistens
Till the breeze plays in your books
Let's sit by the brook

The sky collects cloud
Today you are lenient
Fountain in the vent

Days of Our Lives (Senryu)

On their wedding day
“The Days of Our Lives” was played
Congregation laughed

I wrote this while attending a wedding.  This is serious! lol!  The traditional or 
classic Japanese senryu format has three lines:  the first has 
five syllables, second has seven syllables and the third five syllables.  The 
pattern is 5/7/5 for a total of seventeen syllables. The senryu is generally about 
an emotional expression.

                need for muse is myth,

a poet is a wordsmith

                deep in his soul's pith
