Swan Lake

Wafting to the water's edge:
Pizzicato breeze.

Haiku VS Senryu

Impetus of spring
   Beget invigorate life --
       Fruition with hope.

Shrill winds rip, tear, cry
   Heated verse under the sheets,
The songs of love grow.

Gladly would I die

Rain Dance

We smile, it's raining Jovial in dancing joy Soaked to the skin Warm hearth welcomes us Naked to bare, towelling Goosebumps diminish Pillows, rugs, two lie Face to face, lips now caress We, attraction flows Candles flickering Undulating shadows grace Unification .

A Bit of Joy

Her tongue drips silver
Calling children of all ages
Walk in the spring brook

Soft pebbles tickle
Urban woes begin to fade
A small interlude

2 Haiku and a Senryu

Oh Great Mystery
Let me not forget myself
within my own prayers


Warm sun hits my face
hyacinth fragrant breezes

winking gracefully

Keep our planet green,
There is an ancient forest,

Let’s cut down the trees!

© Demetrios Trifiatis
   11 September 2015

NOTE: Yesterday, I received an e-mail from Dalia Hashad-Avaaz org, informing me that “A 500 year old forest is being clear cut to make way for Olympic ski facilities that will be used for a four day competition! The International Olympic Committee has mandated these games as "Green Olympics", let's hold them to it and save the ancient forest.”
Join this urgent campaign and Avaaz will deliver our voices directly to the Olympic Committee offices. Sign then share on Facebook, Twitter, email...everywhere:  


I have already shared it on facebook.

Beyond Earth Hour Challenge

Inhale the earth
the world’s a dessert -
just give a burp

Tip: Use seran wrap only for food. Don’t use it as clothing ;P
Real tip: Use ceramic dishes instead of paper plates for meals to decrease landfills and pollution.

Four Seasons of Love

summer love so real
feeling alive in your arms
very hot we got
autumn hearts afire
nature treks took together
loving crisp weather
winter romance fun
snuggling under covers
blissfully in love
springtime love will bloom
our bodies keeping rhythm
seasonal pulses
