Mother-in-law, Sister-in-law

My mother-in-law
Can I resist adopting
You are truly loved.

And sister-in-law
Materially you have all
Money levels high.

Everything they have
Deny them you are loser
Pray or you get ire!

Play with them well, Dear
Eventually you get praised
Dare as you end dead!

Senryu on Angels
Sponsor: marvin celestial

sisterly cherub
my heavenly guardian 
no longer earth bound

related by blood
heavenly family tree
death can be a gift

sanctified halo
consecrated innocence
sacred enchantment

luminous aura
pure magnificent seraph  
divine by virtue

no tears anymore
beautifully celestial
sibling archangel

The flames in the pit
peter out compared with
true distaff disdain

Monsters Retreat

Wait for Sun’s white light…
Cuddle me throughout the night
Monsters run with fright

How humble she was;
Sheltered in a dark manger,
Enceinte Madonna.
