Snowed today!


Bicycle ends here
Ducklings skid on frozen lake
Snow sleeps on trees happy.

Wondering souls


In the darkness of
Yesterday wonder the souls gone
Flowers grow on the cliffs.

Pebbles


Small feet run over the
Pebbles scattered across the ocean
Coast line draws the line.

Between life and death
Pebbles hold the names, the souls
Salty waters and dry lands.

Tears on the cheeks gone
Pebbles scattered memories
Small feet run the line.

Simple thought


Keep it simple
Keep it short
My diary reminds me in vain

Writing over the river
Ink drips over the lines
My handwriting tells the truth

Madness into the cavity of thoughts
Sits silently except
For my pen’s screeching on crisp paper

Keep it simple
Keep it short
I scream at my diary in despair

Waking from a dream I didn’t have
Keep it simple
Keep it short.

Willing it true

There are a thousand signs
Through the chain of steps
An old woman attempts
To conjuncture the omens
Of her seeing
An image of an imagination split
Between fear and hope willing
It true!

Girl in the snow

Beautiful girl in the snow

Dance for me

Warm my heart with love to be

And I will sing my love for you

Beautiful girl in the snow.

Effusive

Effusive little girl

Plays on the street

Next door soon

Arrived and

I got to

Know my friend!

Effusive little girl

Turned a woman without

Warning

Effusive little boy

Turned a big boy

Effusively giddy.

Pensive she is

Youthful she is

Beautiful she is

Party ecstasy

Heart, my heart’s

Rhapsody.

Vulcanize

Love breaks

Like the dawn

Sets you free

Vulcanize your heart.

Love breaks

Like flower petals

Breaks you

Vulcanize your soul.

Love breaks

New and old, leaves you

Breathless

That’s its joy

Dawn breaks fresh.

Vulcanize

Ready for love

Ready for love to break

So new and fresh

Vulcanized you!

Gauze

Alone note struck

The last of winter birds sings

A piano plays note

A grove – suspended silence

A rose awaits the end of gauze.

A ballad of a lonely raindrop!

This poem is an experimentation with Haiku and Tanka forms. It is also a reflection on the year of the pandemic as the year draws closer to its end. A storm passed? Let’s hope.

Lonely raindrop left

An angry storm passed through

One rose stood firm

Storm passed through emptiness

A raindrop kissed

The rose’s cheeks, sun shines

A new beginning

Write your story in the empty

Space there is reality

What remains – you!
