SPREAD LOVE (three haiku)

spread love    come on!    try!
be you like some growing tree
branching to the sky

no expectation
no!    love is a child of mind
no condemnation

love    not just giving
oh no!    to receive as well
you must be willing

Merry Christmas

Mild sun of winter 
Spreads a love touch everywhere
Of happy Christmas 

In the slum a child 
Smiles in a red hibiscus
Petals of Jesus 

Blankets offered to
Poor people standing in rows
Jesus in rainbow

In the hospital 
Life smiles in bruise blood and pus
Footfalls of Jesus

Upon the sweet grass 
Jesus smiles in drops of dew
Lovely Christmas hue 

In Christmas flavour 
To all poetry soupers
A merry Christmas

Categories: school,


First day to school is very good for children like us, very cool.
We meet our new friends and old one’s too,
But we don’t know we should catch whom.
Children are excited to know the teacher,
As they need a good future.
 We come to know the rules of school,
So that we do not work according to us like fools.
We share our tiffins and tell our feelings,.
We ask last year’s percentage ,
To know whether the child is of good stage. 
We give our introduction lovingly,
So that everyone may know us clearly.
There is nothing to study much as its first day, full of fun.
We go home hand in hand ,
To remain life long friends….

The Homeless Child

Street lamps still lighted
night has retired and faded
a new day unfolds

heavens rolled darkness
tucked it away for the sun
to give light and shine

in the horizon
a golden beam of sunrise
appears out of mist

in the street corner
a small child still dazed from sleep
awakens and yawns

trembling, feeling cold
he hugs himself to feel warm
morning air brings chill

to his fragile frame
that looks sickly, frail and weak
under the street lamp

for this homeless child
the street corner becomes home
to rest for the night

in a little while
he will move and will scavenge
for his morning meal

from the garbage can
full of piled litters and trash
he gets his morsel

living in the street
has made him vulnerable
life is hard and tough

for a little child
abandoned, uncared, unloved
is there hope to life?

Black Friday

Love your neighbor as you love yourself
What happened to our mind set?
She’s an infant not a cure for aids
She’s pure why forcefully snitch her virginity 
Respect our women you selfish men

South Africa you’ve made a name for yourself “rape capital” 
Let us unite against rape and restore our good name
My beloved South Africans unite!
Unite against women and child abuse
One person raped is one too many

Anene Boysens, your death united the nations
United, they condemned discrimination against women
They said” every girl has a right to be respected and protected against women abuse”
How long should we take this barbaric conduct?  
We owe it to all the victims to fight this disease

Woe to your power assertive rapists
Woe to you anger retaliation rapists
Woe to you sadistic rapists
Woe to you juvenile sex offenders
Woe to you women offenders	

14 February after sun set a word went forth
Rapists have no place in South Africa
February 15, 2013 declared a black Friday
We shall remain black until we defeat rape
Victory is within our reach, fight against rape.

A Farmer's Fear

A farmer ponders
about the hardness of life
that demands a lot

a dry and parched land
where nothing can grow and live
brings worry and fear

to a man like him
that thrives and lives on farming
it is saddening.

drought is too costly
it sucks and dries everything
land becomes barren

little child at home
is waiting, hungry for food
what is there to do

nature has its time
it has its season to share
and withhold its gifts.

man is wondering
why life changes its season
and brings misery

Long Beach

Crisp Spring day
          winds gusting
birds on beach

The West End
          where Artists aspire
to live their dreams

Strolling Boardwalk
          regulars pass by
enjoying rhythm

Daily excursions
          through turmoil
and jubilant feelings

Fog rolls in
          under a sprinkle
Ocean in a tempest

Sun breaks through
          during lackluster afternoon
children playing

Cell phone rings
          friendly voice
amidst chaos

Baseball season starts
          America's pastime
frigid eve

Another dawn
          breaks monotony
anxiety pesters

Spring snowfall imminent
          insomnia strikes
Is it natural?

A child is an angel
          my flesh and blood
sleeping peacefully

Video games galore
          when you hang
with a 14 year old.

Robin Red Breast

Daylily casualty
Robins flocking in the yard

***I lost a daylily to grub worms and the Robins love grubs and wormsThe last two days the robins have been all over my yard eating worms and grubs.....poetic justice!!

One year when I was a child I was walking in the yard and army worms were every where....I run in side and tell mom then I go back out and worry that they will eat all our vegitation....shortly a flock of birds by the thousands comes along and eats up the worms it was like a blessing and yet it happend so fast I don't think my parents really believed me.

Wake up People

I'll tell you whats wrong with the world today, Everyone all caught up in texing facebook and all this here say.

People so busy with their lives and making money, Did you dumb asses forget why GOD put u here it isnt even funny.

Whether you believe in GOD or not were here for one thing, its about showing love not whose got the biggest bling

GOD gave me one gift its called I keep it real, I'll call you out on your stuff and tell you how I feel.

Pick a topic any topic and I'll spit my shit, the only question is can you handle it.

If I had my way theirs a few things I would do, Get rid of the death penalty, change the drug laws, put child molesters on an island alone just to name a few.

 People can change this I know, We all got love its in our SOUL.

It happens
Similar, yet not
We grow numb

One more child dies
We cry less

More empty debates
We grow bored

One more faulty thing
Trust is gone

School shooting
More students snuffed out
Another day

Cause to join, defend
I grow tired

So many things
Over and over
I grow numb

Painful world
Displayed on the news
Numb, yet watch

Mere Happiness

tiny kiss with hugs
soars an old heart to great heights
a child is amazing…

so careful they love;
everyone and everything.
extravagant smiles;
little minds that never sleep,
big hearts that remain vigil.

happiness is small
enough to carry and hold
precious little child…

Art gallery glimpses
Posters on walls;
Unfamiliar insights


Fresh good market
Country festival;
Abundant fruits


Young child escorted
Proud parents each side;
Nurture greets nature


Roasted meat stall
Duck, chicken, BBQ pork;
Appetizing fares


Pay day queue
Busy ATM buzz;
Cash flow escapades


Sleepy moments
Heavy eyelids flutter;
Bedtime stories


Quizzical notions
Unanswered query;


Chinese Pu-Er tea
Refreshing brew;
Fragrant sensations


Sparrow sing-song
Rainy day complaint;
Resting on my ledge


Crows on a tree
Casuarina bough;
Wet evening dark


Ships by the bay
Sunset silhouettes;
City lights glimmer


City skyscrapers
Deserted weekend;
Sullen silence presides


Sunday orchestra
Noisy enclave crowds;
Chattering diaspora


Foreign workers gather
Common language screams;
Home town dispensations


Social integration
Newcomers and old salt;
Brine for salted cabbage


Dear Pandora
Curiosity brings curse;
Hope endures boldly


Words struggle now
Crisp commotion here;
Pain sublimates thought


Style sparks smiles
Bitter gall precipitates;
Ideas emerge

We live grandeur
Such lovely times;
Gratitude speaks


Joy greets splendour
Smell of fresh grass;
Sighs delight


Touch of magic
In simple things;
Fabulous sights


Sense a new feel
Floating free;
A voice calling


New year presides
Time and tide align;
Wonder delights


Time for change
To craft new say;
Humbling moments


Joy calls softly
Laughter delights;
Humour shows wit


Listen now
Celebrate joy;
Peace on earth


Green grass verge
Dandelion swaying;
Scented sensations


Tired old lady smiles
Waiting in line;
Cheer tickles face


Touch of stray breeze
Ruffles her hair;
Beauty strokes


New year greetings
So much to say;
Words do not come


Old man sits here
Stares at passing world;
Private thoughts loiter


Playful child runs
Frolic greets glee;
Wonder funds motive


School days
Amazing trips;
Happy adventures


Old friends cluster
Meet to discuss;
Old news, old times


Memory prevails
Loiters in corners;
Mood swings attend


Time loiters with dreams
Broken not forgotten;
New day preaches


Last I dreamt dreams
Awakening I forget;
Fall into a dream

Perfection Plus

In my perfect world
animals and human beings
frolic in sweet peace.

No inhumane things
inflicted on God's creatures
only joy they bring.

No color line crossed
hate crimes to other races
shades of their faces.

no child be abused
parents love would nuture so
little ones to grow.

Church of choice would be
free to enter, kneel and pray
no gun fire play.

Hungry mouths would eat
thirsty souls would be complete
smiles shine all the time.

friends forever flowed
hearts glowed, no bombs dropped or hurled
in my perfect world.

a punch of haiku


in the afternoon
his rendezvous with her
and her shadow too
standing in the park
behind a little cabin
two shadows kissing
on your way windstorm
bring dust and leaves and paper
and letters for me
a sudden whirlwind
the poems i wrote outdoors
delivered to heaven
the almond tree
blossoms falling falling
the child still swinging
in the olive grove
singing aloud all night long
with the cicadas

Haiku: Traditional 58

well worth waiting for
cicadas do splits on screen
morning buzz for child

Brian Johnston
June 16, 2016

Poet's notes: 
When I was a child my sister and I used to catch cicadas and put them on the inside
window screens of our house and then watch them molt their skinsWe did not have
TV at that timeThe wings would unfold and dry and in the morning we would catch
each adult cicada in our hand where it would buzz helplessly just before we released
it to the skyThis is one of my favorite memories of my childhoodFor another poem
