Animality
I saw the underground imaginary place of my generation destroyed
how I mourned the afterword.
Does the afterword make you shiver?
when I think of the animality, I foresee a natural necessity.
An animality is dishonorable, 
it’s colored it’s yellowish, however. 
you take my...Read More

HAIKU MOMENT 8


Stray cool breeze
Plants a calm ease;
Heat wave reprieve

~~~~~~~~~


So many laps
Round and round;
Brisk walking spree

~~~~~~~~~


Weary worry
Spreads load heavy;
Too much tension

~~~~~~~~~


A good laugh here
Marks worthwhile cheer;
Light moments ease

~~~~~~~~~


Mall excursion
Goodies galore;
Tempting bargains

~~~~~~~~~


Curious wonder
History unfolds;
Vanity confronts

~~~~~~~~~


Curious eyes watch
One winning glimpse;
Claims sure credit

~~~~~~~~~

WINTER HAIBUN (Afterword )

shapes spread statuesque

foliage in Winter clothes-

melancholy me

Hallow Eve to Candlemas,the sun now turning south,;November is
sombre,December dark,January,February cold and stark.Catkins litter the forest 
floor,beeches shed their leaves galore.Gales melange the mix,as decay brings 
nature's bionomics.Hexagon pointed stars move...Read More

stars for eyebrows
she has stars for eyebrows
her phonetic smile says so much more
tightly wrapped in the grey gaunt gauze of daylight
eyes still closed
i wait arms breadth away for her
to breath
to open
while mind touches upon her journey
while pieces parts of her epiphany are...Read More

REQUIEM-A STRUCTURED PROSE
Nothing moves,silence, echos of
voices,the past awakes!Faces 
appear,then depart!A tear trickles
slowly,the music plays,faintly.
Emotion erupt,again!
Regret whispers,in pain!


MEMORIES-A STRUCTURED PROSE
Memories surface,a requiem of
sounds,heaving emotions realign,
words recalled speak volume from
deep within , and live again on a trail

Hessa
He’s more myself than I am
Whatever our souls are made of 
His and mine are the same 
There are many things that can keep you in a relationship
Fear of being alone
Fear  of disrupting the arrangement of your life
A decision...Read More

Tattoo Mama
Tina-Louise dashed into a tattoo parlor   
And asked for some ink in the shape of a flower.       
Much below the knees so my mom doesn’t holler;
Would you hurry-up please, I’ve only one...Read More

VEILED INFERNO
Take it to the doors of heart :
features are same,
of whores and nuns.

Small steps, big hands
move towards the blood-gates of ropes
to pluck the thorns from books.

Tomorrow was yet to come.
Today it is bloodbath
in river of slogans

Afterword was mine.
The candle will...Read More

Slow and Painful Joys
Dull hearts have gone astray
My euphoria lights the way 
The conquers will burn their books
Why am I the one in flames? 

Said we’d die holding hands
(I’ll suffered for you)
Now that time is past
(I’ve suffered for you)
I was always dancing in...Read More
