A Little Girl Cries

A little girl cries
Porcelain doll lies broken
No solace for tears

A young woman cries
Heart, soul, and dreams lie broken
Oh, to be a child

Day dreaming… My mind refuses to see The real world… Half asleep… My reality broke free From the strain… Eyelids close… The meaning of living here ASTOUNDS ME! Half awake… My dreams are so spellbinding PINCH ME, please?

our songs of sorrow
we sing in blue solitude
for those lost in wars

SORROW AND HAPPINESS




                                          in expectation 
                            pleasing sense shimmers in heart 
                                     happiness smiles quite 

                                         whatever teases 
                                     out of all expectations
                                        reflects sorrow in

                                       expectation's choice 
                                    if fulfilled becomes happy
                                       if not there's sorrow

Haiku and Senryu with the Japan Tremor in view

Their eyes  well   with   tears  

Tremors   have   crushed  tomatoes 

In  Kunamato  



Waves  of the  earth  howled

Successive   days   and  nights rolled

Crisis   loom   in   soul  



Quake  flattens houses

Southern  Japan   collapses  

The serpent hisses



Souls  shake   in  Ozu

Our   dear   friends   we   feel   for  you

Time  weeps  in   pain-dew



Our   deep   sympathy  

From  Soupers  empathy   too  

The  world  is  with  you
