Premium Member Cinco de Mayo Western Haiku
Celebrations galore
throughout the hemisphere
worldly delight

Bright sunny day
temperatures mild
blissful happenings

Joyous occasion
bolstering freedom
laughs and smiles

Universal principles
thorough determination
brings vivacity

The wind 
from heaven's height
filled with happiness, gaiety

Life's responsibilities
can at times
be pleasurable

Evening fosters a
delightful night
enjoying placidity

At Mar-a-Lago
Is serving up Mexican lies

Trump welcomes us all
To pay for his Wall
In a scam each Republican buys

There is no true refugee!

Pointed Fingers
Fingers are wrongly pointed in accusation
Assuming poems are written for intimidation
Voices raised in needless defense cry aloud
As they huddle and mutter among the crowd

Consider how your allegations must sound
As you toss foolish words and slurs all around
Don't defame those whose...Read More

Hope no found, 
Life too short, 
Caterpillar on a hedge sword, 
Walking in a sensational trait.

I could have leaved a million years without love.
This papa longed for but never seen.
The wives bend at the back of...Read More

Tasting Petals
I'm tasting the petals and hymn.
It's hard to know where to begin.
Except when my brain falls out and my hate comes in.
I'm tasting the petals and hymn.

Buoyant joyful spirits
but a garb, tormented
binary mind, prey to
betraying, grave  mood swings.
Brazeness doth  give way
brusquely to despondence;
blues to sadly,  hold sway.

He raised his glass, then sipped his beer.
Gringos all then raised a cheer!
"To Mexico!" Hear them cry, "Oh!"
"Today is good old Cinco de Mayo!"

"To freedom for old Mexico!"
Their 4th of July so we've been told.
"The day they earned their independence."
