all explanations 
a perceptive, world of green
mocking the land

summoned bird calls
tantra and morality 
zestful garden-----------------  in waiting

Your Eyes Are There

The tree stays empty
No bird no breeze no glow worm
The soil looks morose  

Dense clouds have gathered
On and around the grey tree
Blooms are comatose

Getting rid of frost
Only last night it blossomed
Into a fountain

Alas, to no end
No bird from your shrubbery
Winter in my breath

Up and underneath
This load of cloud with no face
Restlessness for rain

No, no more moaning
For I know your eyes are there
If not now, later

None knows how and when
Your pink pigeons smile and fly
My flame is orange

A Place Called Home

On the covered bridge
A bird is building its nest
Hidden by shadows

HAIKU #1-14 (Taken from my files totaling 12,016 haiku, started in 2/9/06)

Ants red as wine                                      A black spider seem to own
dine on yellow nectar                                squatter's rights right on
from a juicy mango                                  our front porch.

Day of rain and                                         A quiet gentle breeze brought
zero visibility, then                                     thoughts of Belize and
pastel evening sky                                   New York's Hudson.

Morning draped in silk                                 Drenched from his walk
of white as we await snow                          a lone man sat basking on
and sleet and cold rain                             bench in sudden sunshine.

In dreariness of winter                               Driving home by night
my philodendron buds stands                      I fled the signal of a white
erect and frozen                                     hand hitchhiking.

Earth held in traction                                 In temp of one hundred
by glistening silver moon                             a black bird basked
full like a balloon                                      in my shadow.

Blond rabbit pregnant                                 In dark of night 
with spunk often visit and                           With full moon bright
side with the husband                                military copters all in a row.

A spider sleeps all day                                 In early morn my pen
then wake up and work                                poised like stillness of
at post twilight time                                  trees awaiting breeze.

Glint on Nile

Walking aimlessly
Suddenly a star entered 
A poem happened 

What was the poem
A cascade of golden light
On her hair and neck

How lovely you look
Said golden neck,the light said,
You are lovelier

The bird in my vein 
Said to both of them, good morn
They smiled, glint on Nile

sunshiny springtime
a compassionate ant calls
enjoying the bee

for clean is the air
flowers florets everywhere
crisp and clean the smells

butterflies reaping
while beautiful, wild bird quarks
whilst lit on the rock

clean air everywhere
look at me enjoying spring
spring is in the air

passionate ant crawls;
cut grass smells watermelon
smells so brisk to me

butterflies eating
sucking nectar from flowers
spring is in the air

-Haiku Nursery-

((** Natures Nurse **))

Hot temperatures
someone call the spring doctor
cold fertilizer

((** Early Bird **))

Fresh morning light
sweet SAP falling on my plate
Lego my Eggo

((** Desert Rose **))

In the dead of night
One star sings me a sad song
cactus feels my pain

((** Looks that kill **))

What else can I say?
Intrigue me with silence
look into my eyes

((** Home Sweet Home **))

End of road
my final destination
Next stop Olympus!

((** Heaven or Hell **)) 

Leave all dirt behind
Welcome mat above sunrise
running for the door

All Creatures Big and Small

In his wisdom God
Created all creatures with
Deep love and purpose


Beautiful bird perched
on tree limb under moon's glow
elegantly dressed


Clouds rest on tree tops
lumpy feather beds billow
horses graze in snow
Jan24, 2007


Proud bird perched so high
silently viewing the world
We await his song
Dec23, 2007


Sun and humming birds
mingle while rainbows arch high
drawing eyes skyward


Tiger baths his wounds
cold water soothes like medicine
he will fight again
October 1, 2007


In him peace abides
Little fellow young and free
God's true gift to me

                       VOICES OF SPRING

                        by nature driven
           some hidden wild bird finds voice
                         at crack of dawn

            day by day watching
                     watching tiny buds unfold
                                     to full blown image – spring

                          nature paints spring
                    she work in color and form
                         overlapping the frame

                   sunny sky
                                   cerulean blue
                                                      sunny mood

Haiku 5 - mournful cries, way of nature, flight into eternity

mournful cries fill the air
mother bird calling for its baby
eaten by the cat

I am sad: yet, that is 
the way of nature

deceptive glass pane

aqua velvet kisses - and
one dozen roses

American Haikus


the moon falls west-ward
the tule fog saunters east
summer ends early

New Siblings

puppy petite gold
bouncing around black dog's space
I know you’re in love

Swimming in spring fog
wind plucked guitar string in time 
Tule music plays


fog braised Fillmore
ready for full moon to wane 
while waiting for Jack

Dreams while Sleeping #2

when I piss in dark
All my prayers are sombreros
night of a new moon

Wake up Calls

first chirp of the morn
different from dog barking
five better than four

Midnight Ride

some full moon wheeling
search werewolves in the quag
Robin Hood’s fire

Unnecessary Student Loans

lifestyle to uphold
says I to financial aid
just give me the loan

English DeptBuilding

walk paper footsteps 
through hallowed hollow hallways 
already relics

Jesi Naomi

tuba bongo blues
like a freight train serenade
echoes in the night

New York Fall

tinged purple and red
nothing to rhyme with orange 
rolling New York hills

Gutter Glitter

lock jaw by myself
keep me imprisoned for hours
mumbling into phone

Danny West
it's raining outside
but I'm frying potatoes  
the all-night kitchen

Closing Time

staring at my beer 
one blue bird in the rafters
too it's closing time

Good Witch

She has rings and bows 
She has glasses full of hours
Honey from the bee

Words fail
Meaning blurry;
Nothing rhymes


Upstairs apartment
Renovation works;
Pneumatic floor blast


Idle talk punctuates
Not much meaning;
Bizarre thoughts


Sonic headache
Disturbing pounding;
Head time-bomb ticking


Constipated movie
Suspicious assumptions;
Character flaws


Dragonfly pond
Lotus flowers bloom;
Mud bed ascend


Brief excursion
Abrupt exfoliation


Beauty delights
Ample assets;
Tipsy tryst


Orange butterflies
Dazzling flights;
Breezy patterns


Wavy handwriting
Cursive scripts swirl;
Verse outburst


Sleepy somnolence
Mid afternoon fare;
Lazy disposition


Word tiles
Pattern styles;
Thought textures


Black bird trio
Choral message;
Lightning crackle


Sound tact
Sure act;
Solid fact


Busy bee
Blooming finds;
Flower power


Day ascends
Midday sun strokes;
Positive feedback


Monday stirrings
Weekday routines call;
Noisy hurrying

national bird of 
Trinidad and Tobago
Caribbean Isle

the scarlet ibis
it is a tropical bird
bright red in color

it has a long neck
and it's bill is long and curved
feathers are black tipped

feet are slightly webbed
it's legs are long and skinny
with a wide wing span

beak is used to probe
in mud and shallow water
where it looks for food

you should see it fly
with its long neck extended
as if it's gliding

it's a good fighter
fights with beak legs and it's wings
protects its offspring

scarlet ibis is
one of the most beautiful 
of bird family

they're gregarious
rest in colonies in trees
they travel in flocks

united they are
we can learn a thing or two
from these awesome birds.

The Bald Eagle

gliding in updrafts-
   the bald eagle soars, mighty....
      billowing clouds hang,


graceful bird of prey
   falling with speed, the capture....
      homeward bound prestige 

nurtured chic's await-
   the aerie, perched above, safe....
      dreams of flight await
