Twenty One Haiku

Why butterfly flits from flower to flower? Divine discontent. Who impregnates galactic dust clouds? Dark Dancer. Come, my enchanted flute speak to my deaf ear strike me dumb. Play on string less lyre broken rhythm repair cruise on waves. The butterfly savours nectar of flowers the orchid to pollinate. Lightning thunder flash flood shore recedes. The sun’s hide and seek with dark clouds; the captive water released. I dare not lift lid off my memory lest pent up demons break…

Twenty Haiku

Ask not where my grave be I am mariner of high seas at the mercy of treacherous tides. I offer chrysanthemums to my father’s picture with petals raining sacred ash. Winter chill bites my bones will my roofless neighbor survive, this icy cold, I wonder! Isn’t it the same bowl wherefrom I ate my humble rice now its hollowness mocks. The frog in pitch gloom leaps with a gurgling sound my sight returns. The first fall of snow: the valley…

As hailstorm subsides a lone oak stands out wearing a white wooly shroud. The snake slips away giving my green eyes a slip. What next,…

HARMONY SUBLIME

Trees don’t cry they sing! to the listening ear they will serenade their welcome song. Sing a soothing tune if you are sad wish you happy cheer bring memories of darling dear with a whiff of fresh breeze.

Unable to restrain your steps with abandon you begin to dance fixed…

TWENTY HAIKU

TWENTY HAIKU Raise your eyebrows dandelion, see spring dance! Gasp at humid weather dehydrated bone thirsty; snooze under a shower. Winged warblers cruise in musical waves. My heart in cloud nine. Autumn kiss yellows every leafy green turns trees into stumps. Don’t weep all decayed to dust shall return, life and death a cycle. Spring daybreak the cuckoo’s cry daffodils dance. Night hailstorm uprooted tree looks a ghost, early dawn at my little window. Snowfall at my door vast white…
