An Old Haiku

The earth is green now.
The flowers open early,
blooming but to die.

Watching the heat in shock waves

Another Old Haiku

Night's blackness obscures
our very limited view.
Does dawn surprise us?

Copyright © Leo Larry Amadore | Year Posted 2012

Details | Haiku |


 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.


 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.

 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.


 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.


 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.

 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.

 Exercise I

 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.

 Exercise II

 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.

 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 He had to learn it.

 All his writing was
 He was egocentric.


 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.

 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 Summer. I feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

Situation Haiku

the tsunami struck
with the entire world watching
the judgement of God

the radiation
that they always knew was there
silently rages

it's time for prayer
for the people over there
humble one's self

it's time for hero's
knowing they will not live
yet they bravely give

the sacrifice's
ordinary men will make
will save their nation

A Haiku Sextet

Losing her, a dream,
winter ravaged my soul and
Now the snowman melts.

Solitary bird,
why sing you only of spring
outside my window?

I stole a flower
from nature's bed,bottled it.
Now it is dying.

The crunch of brown leaves
tells me nothing whatsoever
about decay, death.

It is November, 
but the air forgets that as
it dances springtime.

Winter is most real,
fall most sad, summer holy,
but spring is adream.

A Mountain - Haiku

My soul's made of stone       
From triumph to tragedy      
A mountain has grown  

This stature my own 
Forever, stoic forces guide 
'Til peaks fashion thrones 

The angels have flown       
To wherever, without doubt   
Mountains stand alone

Seascape Haiku verse 2 - How Deep?

The deepest ocean
Becomes shallow at the edge
How deep will you go?

Co-inspired by Raul's contest and by our minister's talk today on Integral Spirals of
Consciousness, going higher and deeper in stages and states.

Which your world revolves upon; 
To you, I'm nothing.

As hers aglow that Venus
Would die of envy.
