The Lost

                                                Innocent lifeless
                                       Pretty children rest in peace
                                             Let us pray for them

                                            The kids were victims
                                       The shooter was victim too
                                             Let's not put a blame

                                                 Exclamation sign
                                          Love family, love it right
                                        Don't loose, hug them tight

                                                  Dear educators
                                           Part of the victims as well
                                               The lifetime tribute

                                           Mourn traveled the world
                                         Burn by cause last on effect
                                               Careful in our steps

Starving children die

Peacefully the greedy sleep 

Humanity's shame!*

© Demetrios Trifiatis
         10 July 2018

* According to UNICEF more than 15.000 children die each day because of starvation!
If only humanity showed the same compassion as in the case of the trapped in the cave of Thailand children, we certainly would have a much better world

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….

Children in beauty contests
Shame on their parents

I have written this haiku after having seen on television that some people brings children 
of 2 to 6 years to beauty contests to win money and with the scope of launching them in 
show careersThis cannot be tolerated: children must be respected!

Be all that you can be

Sun and sand and beach
Life has some lessons for me
Be all  you can be!

Sad conversations
May healing come to you soon
And children be safe!

For all you have done
And wherever you may be
May you rest in peace!

- Haiku X 23 - Christmas 2013 -


           Finally perfect
           high in the top the green tree
           The christmas star shines

           The lights are shining
           all the children should sleep now 
           Christmas  tomorrow

            No children crying
            a night with good sleep sweet dreams
            Gifts under the tree


                                The wish is old and yet so real.
                              A peaceful Christmas I wish for you !

Soul Calm

Watching children play
Happily in deep autumn leaves
Stills my soul.

Poem Details | by Charles Melody Lightning Ink |
Categories: inspirational


Mother's hope shot!
Who will rescue tomorrow?
Unending woe...
Midnight town crier!
Women and children take cover
Men running to war.
Dry leaf swaying down
Looking from where it falls
Fresh leaves, take caution.
Not minding the meat,
Isolated to ponder,
Woeing solution
Plates without hope
war came frowning
never to smile.

Life 2

Life is a gift
But we have never cared
Destruction of the rain forest
And no animal is spared
Arise great Pro-man
Now raise up your sword
Do not let materialism deceive you
So stick to your word
The petroleum wells will dry up some day
And they will be no money for you to pay with in that way
The gold mines will diminish one day
And there will be no fields for our children to play
Arise Pro-human
Defend mother earth
Do not think of wealth
Or all that you can get
Life is beautiful
So let us be dutiful
As a Good Samaritan
And help your fellow African
Chinese or European
In need
To create a paradise devoid of greed
That is what I call Utopia
Not until we die
When it is all over
We can not let the children suffer
I have seen pain in my old days
The weak rise 
And the mighty fall
Armies rise to fight at the clarion call
Only the truth remains
Like a tree that stands tall
In the next millennia where shall we be?
Vanity after vanity
The rest is history
Life is a gift
And love is a blessing
Let us unite this world
And teach a good lesson

My Family

     young couple in love
nurturing parents now gone
       left their legacy

       global  heritage
 french, spanish, lil' italian
       irish and german

      a real smorgasbord
  main ingredient was love
       served to all of us

        one older brother
younger sister - my best friend
       grew up on a farm

        life was lots of fun
 but there was work to be done
     raised with faith in God

        strong lineage tree
branched with children of our own
       fed with lots of smiles

Categories: beauty,


Morning breeze
Airy embrace;
Faith greets hope


Birdsong greeting
Morning offering;
Nature reveals longing


Solar eclipse
Everybody's talking;
Promises to keep


Messages pile
Greetings found;
Another birthday


Here and there
Scattered paintings;
Picturesque moments


Haiku patterns
Glimpse revealed;
Experience sublime


Workday escapades
Lift lobby crowd;
Cellphone enlightenment


One by one
People flypast;
Serious countenance


Stranger smiles
Playground children scream;
Youthful vigour

Of two, your uncle doesn't like either

By his attitudes
your uncle resembles
a machine with laughs in brightness! 
With some difficulty
most people stop themselves
from laughing.
Besides, are they are in a state
to laugh -
poor people?
Their problems exceed their means,
high costs exclude...
their children are untenable.
Their waiting
lags behind
the century
nothing else in place
he grabs passers-by
by the nose...
a gag in one hand,
a carrot and an onion
in the other.
As a matter of fact...
what does he want,
your uncle?

"A ghoul's parade"
Time remains still for The silent, eternal march Of children disguised
"Fun for All"
Black and orange smiles A knight of ghastly terror for playful sprites
"Darkest night of the year"
A powerful howl pierces the children's laughter The cold hallows wind
"Haunting holiday"
A pre-November unforgiving melody "Happy Halloween"

Humid evening
Hot air and disease;
Flu bug on parade!

Old age looks forlorn
My neighbour sits alone;
Keeps own company

Day turns to night time
Cyber sensations;
Wind blown haikus

My mother died alone
Late June last year;
Still, I see her face

Two poodle-terriers
Snoopy and Bear;
Canine matrimony

My dead father
In my mirror glimpse;
Startling son-rise!

Traffic jam scenario
Car number 5000;
Sporty impatience!

Lotus posture here
Waiting on no-thing;
Something happens

Morning Glory flowers
Climbers on the fence;
Noisy children play

Fifty floors above
Skyscraper joggers;
Evening escalates

Stranger smiles
Crowded minimart queue;
Awkward silence cut

Waiting lift crowd
Together yet alone;
Stress and strain percolate

To remember;
Happy ever after

Words cannot
Even tell enough;
Non-fat skimmed milk

Work hard
Diet plan;
Manage self-image!

Our great old man
Frail as bamboo charcoal;
May peace abide

Bright legacy
Warm harmony;
Sepia continuity

Ink my name
On rice paper;
Rain dissolves all

Not much
Not even;
Not enough

Words on electrons
Cyber storage works;

the Christmas tree

the Christmas tree stands ornaments on center and top... grandson now thirteen
I know not correct Haiku.. When my children were coming up, I would let them help decorate the tree. One year all the decorations were on the two bottom tiers.. The same way with my grandsons.. This year I asked Caleb who is thirteen now to come help. When I thought we were finished, I stepped back and looked...Most of the ornaments were in the middle and close to the top..He has really grown..

Moody sky
Lightning whiplash;
Stormy water colours


Potted plants
Passageway decor;
Blooming orchids


Pedestrian walkway
Route to somewhere;
Day bazaar stalls


Blue butterflies
Fluttering around;
Plumeria blooms


September moon
Romantic hints;
Streaking teardrops


Pulse of morning
Bamboo pines sway;
Breeze whispers softly


Silver bangle
China momento;
Copy original


Yellow bird rest
Sings of old times


Old cabaret
Vintage moods linger;
Old building restored


Old era compound house
Oxford Road guava tree;
Fond memories intervene


Traditional wedding
Friend's daughter bride;
Happy festival here


Search and browse
Used books sale;
Treasured keepsake


Muddy lotus pond
Hot midday sun;
Purity sparkles


Happy children play
Spontaneous frolic;
Virgin innocence


New media connections
Yet loneliness expands;
Cyberspace touch points


Extravagant outlook
Spending tomorrow's wealth;


Brief tryst in time
Insanity extrapolates;
Nightmares lurk


Tall grass verge
Stray flowers sway;
Unnoticed treasures

ON A SUMMER DAY - multi haiku

On a summer day
A day with children at play
Memories come back

The old neighborhood
How we used that neighborhood
So seldom inside

Our dirty    bare feet
At games   in constant motion
Lungs alive with joy

Drooping in at eve
And nearly too tired to eat
We lay down    at last

To sleep    dream away

A thousand phantoms linger
On a summer day

The Inspired Heart

One more poem, Lord
Let my heart diffuse in words
Candle wax of love

One more drain of grief
The songs that make children smile
Flower spoilt by fruit

One more gift of grace
To fence death in coming night
In eternal song

And much more for love
The moth upon flame ignites
The wonder of eyes

One more poem, I
Darkness of universe, light
Saints on pilgrim shores

Give me heart to write
Upon bright in drops of dew
I quench sun's thirst too

The Prayers

         Truckers Prayer:
Dark hill, sliding ice
O cargo of faith suffice
Wheel my heart to thee
                                          Miners Prayer:
                                     From heaven so far
                                     A darkness mines shafts of fear
                                     And your footsteps here
Shippers Prayer:
Sleep within my heart
Where breaks the tumult of sea
Like a voice of calm
                                         Mothers Prayer:
                                     Hold my hand always
                                     And my love when you are worn
                                     By life's feet in you
Pastors Prayer:
Kneeling lone I stand
For all I am, at thy throne
Vessel of a man
                                           Children Prayer:
                                      The light blinds our heart
                                      May our eyes see unseen things
                                      Covered by your grace
A Man's Prayer:
Dust fracturing light
Put a rainbow in my place
Blanket for the night

Flow of current

Flow of current

Till night his absent
Into the four wall room
Flow of current can't glow

Marriage at sixteen 
Always favor of him
Blushes mind as in show 

Compare with other 
My husband is amicable
Always pour behavior agreeable more

So bearing children more
My family dances in street and court
No jealous if other duplicate.

Jeans and Genes

This is what I mean
From his father he has had
Juicy humour genes

Jeans look so genial
Specially the Jeans turtle
At the Jeanie mart
Are you feeling low 
May try Gene Krupa solo
And feel how leaves grow

Also may see him
I mean General Gene, for
Boost in dopamine

Jeans for the Genes day
Brings thrill to children who are
Heritably ill

Halloween Night

silhouette visage 
scare awake the silent dead
on Allhallows eve

weird sounds penetrate
wildly woods so dark and deep
making one cower

a cold eerie chill
overtakes a breathless evening
waking dead spirits

fears manifest great
sullenness apprehensions
scaring one to death

little children lurk 
the streets full of kindly houses
with fun faces that awe
