No Chain, No Charm

In Unison-
~No Chain, No Charm~

United we own
Firm, full of finest goodies-
Our ground of freedom.

United we stand
Firm from failure and horror-
On the ground of strength.

United we pray
Faithfully with open mind-
Our bliss is assured.

20 Lines Haiku Hijack

          20 Line Haiku Hijack

I stole a haiku from Japan
Stuffed it in a duffle bag, added 20 lines
Fed it chocolate day and night before the flight
Then placed it on the market when I landed

Shrimp and whale tails make sound haiku 
Deliciously simple like sushi.  Japan hated mine.
Called it distasteful, too heavy and rude 
Complaining it suffered from too many lines

I sold the stolen poem to a toothless man next
An Afghanistan Taliban in need of a wife
He realized the mistake and returned it at once  
Calling it bland, loveless and torturously trite

I injected a diaphragm on the haiku 2nd line     
To prevent undo pregnancies
When left alone to expand, haiku will multiply on command
It grew from 3 to 20 lines in what Japan calls a crime

Hijacking haiku and adding more lines is wrong  
It changes the meaning and makes it too long
Haiku will never be the same again
In the end I put it on a train to India…a quatrain to be exact.

blessed be His name hiaku

blessed be His name haiku

sure seems stupendous
another hip surgery
then there will be two

my neighbor will have
which all of us do agree
will be best for him

pretty patient wife
is great supporter of his
comfort and relief

things do have to be
always glad it was not me
who had surgery

it had to happen
so sure he will understand
thanks to God's great help

future we have found
is great when God is around
blessed be His name

this is a 5-7-5 haiku with no caps
except God and no punctuation

Night Vision Needed

Free Verse:

Springtime eternal in the forest.
Slick moss invades the massive rock hillside!
Night will soon bring creatures.

Springtime eternal
Slick moss invades massive rocks
Night soon brings creatures.

Note:  Changed the Name of this poem from Slick and Slide to Night Vision Needed because I 
was inspired by Barbara Gorelick's comment.  Thanks Barbara
And also because someone told me that a poems name was very important.  Slick and Slide 
didn't do it justice.   Thanks Raul.

Four Dimensions of My Name

I Lace

Lace graces my soul
feminine and free I dance
ballerina days

II Stone

Tall walls of strength seep
courage as a rushing creek
through cracks of cold grey

III Unknown Fire

Desire fire hot
flames flash as ruby feathers
inside poet muse

IV Song

Long song chimes as bells
ringing like the roaring soft sea
misty music steams
