Happiness of a Child

Looking though their eyes,
To see their faces shining,
Is simply awesome.

Kids go down
The slide…they head toward the swings

Free time ends
Their parents want to go home
Frowns exchange

Innocence Is Gone

injured by his fists
damaged by his sick desires
incomplete puzzle

a family friend
wicked monster in closed rooms
no safety just fear

only a small child
still suffering in silence 
innocence is gone

Haiku, Senryu and Tanka

ocean sounds
I pass a conch
from my ear to hers
monsoon dusk
the flood carrying
my shattered dreams

long rain
the homelessness
reopens the school

holding tight
to the hand of my child--
on the iPad
my mother talks and talks
of returning roles

Melancholy Child

                                                    Melancholy child
                                                  Shrouded in mystery
                                                Woeful heart; weeping

                                                      Melancholy child
                                            time of innocence; haunting
                                                   Draped in shadows

                                                      Melancholy Child
                                            Your angel beholds Gods face
                                                   your Goliath will fall

Child vs Old man

The playful child jumps
Over the murky puddle –
His smile is genuine.

Old man drives his bike
Over the dirty puddle –
the wife’s dress has mud.

Senryus of Solace

Take them to the light… Blest be the children that… go Softly in the night A small step into Eternity…a place of Peace and love and right Know they go where all Good goes…those children that go Softly in the night That when we see them Once again…they’ll take our hand …Lead us to the light… Gently kiss them on The brow…gently let them go …Softly in the night…
