Soaring Hawk - A Haiku Series

Soaring Hawk poised high Back drop a deep sapphire sky Winds in attendance Mighty wings unfold Caressing the Wind Spirits They lift and support Circling Hawk perceives Rainbow circle on a cloud Framed is his shadow On oceans of blue Snow hills of clouds seem to float On silvered ripples Waves swell as they curl White manes gracefully flow Rolling to the shore Higher still soars Hawk Wind Spirits on either side Carry him upwards Land and mountains meld Lofty mountains crown the land Great aspirations Hawk gracefully glides Towards the shore he observes His island in bloom Festooned in colour Hibiscus - Red, Gold and Pink In leafy bouquets Flowers - Pale yellow Their sweet perfume exuding Riding on the Winds Romance in the air Couples hold hands and frolic An Island in love Hawaiian Hawk proud Sees everything - land and sea Paradise Island Wind voices whisper Of Rebirth, Growth and Culture Hawaii has heard
Footnote: We recently visited Hawaii, one of our favorite holiday destinations, once again we were carried away with the ambience and peacefulness of this Island Paradise. The inspiration came while viewing the breath taking panorama from the 16th floor of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach ResortThe Waikiki beach, the beautiful gardens and the mountains all formed the pictureBut we needed a story and the Spirit legends supplied the theme All this came together and composed on the aircraft on our way back home to Australia. I have tried to capture and share some of the essence which is the Spirit of this beautiful island, its rebirth of culture that’s embroidered in the legends of a traditional Hula dance The Red Hibiscus (koki'o'ula) is the flower of the big island, while the Gold flower mentioned - The vibrant, sunshine-hued Yellow Hibiscus (ma'o hau hele) is Hawaii's official National flowerIn Hawaiian culture, Hibiscus is a symbol of old royalty & communicates power and respect The Hawk Kaha Ka ‘lo - the highest Chiefs where often called ‘lo – ‘Hawk with eyes that can see everywhere’ Ku Makani ‘Rising Wind’ has a position of power grace and motion. Ka Leo O Haukine ‘The voice of the Wind’, is so named. The two Winds according to the legend, are the voices of ancestors who listen and speak through the windsTogether they are the Spirits that uplift the mighty ‘Lo – The Hawaiian hawk. Some of the imagery described is seen from the aircraft as it would be seen through the eyes of the Hawaiian Hawk The circular rainbow, for those who have not been fortunate to have witnessed this rare phenomenon, it actually does exist.

Haiku- my abiding memory


      january cold
pure white snowflakes are falling-
            write winter poems

      february ice
hangs from the bare tree branches-
            walks in still nature

      march is a lion
harsh cold winds and ice warnings-
             planning my garden

      april and melting
rivers of snow on the street-
            dreaming of sweet spring

      may is a whisper
gentle breezes caress hair-
            I buy daffodils

      june and loud thunder
nature is washing my world-
             touch buds in garden

      july and the sun
my world is full of color-
            write flower verses

      august is lazy
oh the flowers are fading-
            I pen of decay

      september and rain
that is dripping from green leaves-
            walks in the deep woods

      october falling
descending orange beauty-
            poems of autumn

      november chills come
cold crisp winds and blowing storms-
            thinking of summer

      december stillness
waiting for snow to show up-
            I write christmas words

An Apiary Haiku

the old apiary my mind hums with recollections ------------------------------------- Review by Kazuko Nishimura ~ Haiku Masters ~ April 2018 By pairing the photo of an old, now abandoned apiary with this haiku, the audience can immediately imagine the sounds of bees buzzing around, working hard to create honeyFor the narrator, those buzzing sounds may confuse or distress his or her mind by bringing back old memories, but involuntarily remembering past events is something everyone can relate to, making it easy for the audience to connect with this workThe sound of bees buzzing and the soft light in the photo show hints of spring http://nhk.jp/haikumasters

Haiku on My Family

Second Chance May 2016
Sponsor: Eve Roper


five generations
   connected to my grandpa
      kindred forefather

parents united
    unto them came four children
      love to go around

mother faced cancer
   a dear lady, my angel
      adulthood so strong

adoring siblings
   warmhearted and devoted
     affections of blood

money not vital
   wealthy in rich loyalty
      assets of true faith

our childhood dog Bo
   my sweet Golden Retriever
      my canine best bud

united as one
   roots form a family tree
     belovedly linked

a ku ku krazy day

a very loud noise
started ringing from my clock—
I fell out of bed

a bumped water glass
rolling across the hard floor—
I slipped on my head

a loud screaming sound
resonated through the house—
my face turned bright red

my husband woke up
hysterically laughing—
I was on the floor

I could not get up
without someone assisting—
ku ku krazy day

I went back to bed
wondering what day it was—
perhaps, tomorrow

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus


Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus


Trees with sprouting limbs
bathed by spring's April showers
don
their lacy green robes

Trees with dense full limbs
swayed by warm summer breezes
spread
their green velvet capes

Trees with brilliant limbs
whirled by the cool autumn winds
shed
their burnished gold gowns

Trees with cold bare limbs
frozen by winter blizzards
drape
their white fluffy scarves

Thorns

Thorns




When to red roses
thorns virtually applaud
and 
nature shows its art....

When in green garden
thorns are beginning to reign
then
the autumn will start..

When in the passion
sharp thorns of prickly longing 
stab
deeply pierce a heart..

Hanakotoba


Words are not enough
Language of April showers
Say it with flowers.

Gracious camellia
Daintily posing, but in vain
Begonia lost in thought.

Desirable
Hopes teeming with ambition
Of a stargazer.

From friendship to love
Exchanging yellow petals
With the deepest red.

Delicate beauty
Of hibiscus in full bloom
Inspires iris.

A blushing lilac
Unaware of dawning day
Dreaming of first love.

Bittersweet flower
Ever loyal to the end
Won’t betray a friend.

Parting time is near
Save the memories within
And forget-me-not.

Yellow hyacinth
With a heart that knows no peace
Nest of jealousy.

Morning breeze scatters  
The rich fragrance of jasmine’s  
Deep sensuality.

In Spring

Driving home from work, I watch the darkening sky and the trees along the streets bending in the windBig drops of rain begin to splatter against my windshield until suddenly, my entire car is being bombardedAs the moaning wind picks up, the downpour increases and I adjust my windshield wipers accordinglyNearing my neighborhood, I glimpse a foretoken of spring.

behind their mother
young quail scurry in a row
March winds scatter rain

Soon I am pulling into my driveway, wondering vaguely where the baby quail were bound for and relieved to be escaping the onslaught of cold wind-tossed rainMy spirit has been lifted by the sighting of the quail family, for I know better days are ahead

A few weeks pass, and I find myself becoming excited as I always do after April has arrivedI begin noticing the various plants and trees of my small city, in particular, the burgeoning buds of my own front yard  pear tree, and then at last it happens; I awake one fine morning to my favorite augur of the season:

outside my window
myriads of white blossoms
the trill of birds

april haiku

shards of rain and hail
   pounding on the soaking grass...
      april tempest blows

swollen river beds
    fields of winter turning green...
        peeking through the mud

showers feed the lawns
    tender shoots that spring up strong...
          flowers on the way

Funny haikus for kids





monkey snatches purse
you throw banana to him
he throws back your purse..

saddle a wild horse
to jump on its back swiftly 
else it rides on you.

tree that offers shade
also might be nesting birds
blesses with droppings.

playing in puddles
and muddy clothes by day end
how will you face mom..

vegetarian 
big zeroes in the notebook
is there any use.

HAIKU BLOSSOMS



Rain washing wet
Exit humid heat;
Bamboo pines sway

~~~~~~~~~


Weary estate
Rustic and ancient;
Old people pace

~~~~~~~~~


Orchid stalks
Crystal flower vase;
Beauty adorns

~~~~~~~~~


Class reunion
Familiar faces;
Change intervenes

~~~~~~~~~


Old-time movie
Once upon then;
Romantic poise

~~~~~~~~~


Property market
Doldrums percolate;
Prices go south

~~~~~~~~~


Precious moments
Fragrance lingers;
Touchy feelings

~~~~~~~~~


Red light district
Pretty birds ply;
Ancient occupations

~~~~~~~~~


Evening descends
Abruptly dark;
Distant lights hurl

~~~~~~~~~


Fleeting surge
Momentum flips;
Emergent thoughts

~~~~~~~~~


By the wayside
Weathered old man;
Limping bravely

~~~~~~~~~


Haiku blossoms
Plain fragment;
Frozen experience

~~~~~~~~~


One by one
Passers-by stream;
Distant dream calls

~~~~~~~~~


Economic downturn
Job loss escalates;
Grizzly bear bites

~~~~~~~~~


Stray staccato
Morning birdsong;
Balcony solo

~~~~~~~~~


Seek then the way
Live well each day;
Be one with bliss

~~~~~~~~~


Cruise to nowhere
Sea breeze salty;
Modern distractions

~~~~~~~~~

the last dew drop
still clings to a flower

a tiny rainbow
on its wings---
a busy humming bird

the purple pleasure
from flower to flower---
dripping nectar

breakfast table---
sweet sound and scent
filling the air

My Orion

No matter how high I jump I 
can't reach u.
I love u so much but u 
wouldn't digest this because of 
the other little stars that try to 
have my light to at least 
shine.
They were falling in the 
blackhole.
Remember the blackhole 
absorbs all the light like 
drowning man trying to 
destroy.
In my world everything is 
about u, even the big dipper 
points to U.
u're the brightest Rigel, u light 
my life.
Whether I'm north or south 
u're visible everywhere, that's 
why my mind is programmed 
to U.
There may be 7 shiny stars but 
they can't be u, Orion.
Only u have the distinctness to 
appeal to my exciting view.
Trust me, my eyes stay on u all 
through the night no one can 
beat that.
And if staring at other stars 
makes me loose u, hunt down 
insecurity
Because u're incomparable 
with no competition and I love 
none like u.
Nonetheless, I'm ready to 
accept November to April isn't 
the whole year,
One day u'll no longer be 
there and if destiny  has it,
I'll take a place in the sky with 
u 
some day.

Listen to the shell - ocean-ku



feet fused to the board 
through the curl the surfer rode.....
listen to the shell

TANGENT




Black crow surveys
Two sparrows chat;
Food for thought

~~~~~~~~~


Air-con leaking
Messy affair;
Slippery pathway

~~~~~~~~~


Two toddlers laugh
Playground adventure;
Proud parents chit-chat

~~~~~~~~~


April showers
Thundering rain drops;
Wetness blooms

~~~~~~~~~


Moments freeze
Swirling slowly;
Rainy day moods

~~~~~~~~~


By my work desk
Piles of paper books;
Hoarding feels good

~~~~~~~~~


Telephone call
Old friend chuckles;
Brief encounter

~~~~~~~~~


Chocolate ganache cake
Home made delicacy;
Out of this world

~~~~~~~~~


Time and time again
Same old complaint;
Not enough time!

~~~~~~~~~


Kahlua and cakes
Tea time conversations;
Mingling sighs

~~~~~~~~~


Stone bench moments
Old man resting;
Sunny sparkle

~~~~~~~~~


Bamboo leaves
Spiky ornaments;
Oriental scene

~~~~~~~~~


Arithmetic means
Weak economy;
Tighten your belt

~~~~~~~~~
