HAIKU PASSAGE 9
by Leon Enriquez



Evening cicadas
Cacophony climax;
Night time music

By this playground
Noisy frolic parades;
Little feet gather

Raining non-stop
Wet moments splash;
Umbrella parade

~~~~~~~~~


Aqueous verses
Heavy pieces drowning;
Pouring rain recites

~~~~~~~~~


Walkway cobblestones
Busy footfalls...

Sculpt scripts that tell
In fragrant sight.

In mellow yoke

I’ve been there before.  It’s forbidden:

Orchard carved calligraphy crisply cut -
Spiraled surface-scratched immortality 
Dimly azure, aglow on videotape,
Red, blue,...

Darkness covers everything in sight.
Hiding behind night’s veil like a sprite;
Secrets never reveal their hidden insight.

Shakespeares all of you
by Suburban Lovechild
Surfing, morphing
Through amorous tidal waves

Poisoned, ordained
By the blues-begging rasps

Yielding life's battalions
Seeking solace, fame or gentle ears
