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

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

           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 !

A Christmas wish list
A quick glimpse into my life
Not much going on

Poem Details | by daver austin |
Categories: funnyme, old, me, old,



Ten days till Christmas
Ten days of worry    hustle
What shall I get her?

She won’t help me out
Won’t even give me a clue
What’s a man to do?

She never complains
About my Christmas presents
No    just this blank look

Makes me feel so small
Makes her feel she has revenge
A poke in the gut

“You never listen!”
These are some of her complaints
“You leave the seat up!

Don’t care how I dress
Might as well wear an old sack
Just like some old hag”

I can’t help but laugh
Because her description fits
OW!    OUCH!    That did it!

I will pay dearly
That laugh has ruined her Yule
Ten days of silence

Ten days on the couch
Eating out at McDonald’s
By myself    outcast

Thanks    Lord    ten wonderful days

This is not a description of my married lifeI’m just having funThis is more of a Major Hoople 
poem – “Egad, Martha!  Awpf  Sputt!”

DEATH WISH HAIKU A Musical History of Cigarettes

 DEATH WISH HAIKU (AS Musical History of Cigarettes)
Snooky Lanson sang it clear
smoke in every ear.

From your Hit Parade,
Frank Sinatra blew the words one time
Didn't Fence Him In.

Dorothy Collin's voice
America there's only one to smoke
Lucky Strike's the one.

Drifting up her nose
pulling smoke into her lung
biting on her tongue

what is she doing?
coffins closing in with nails
death as slow as snails.

Do you want a Lucky?
More satisfaction pleasure
undertakers measure.

Camel smoke was nil
More Doctors smoked  Lucky Strikes
Than Mike Hammer smoked.

Nicotine all day
tie hers up in Christmas bows
blow it out her nose.

Free on Navy ships
Sailors never saw the light
Though the match was free.

Christmas Season

Leaves with specs of gold,  

Gently dance above the earth,  

The tree is now bare 

Jesus is the vine,  

We are pruned by God to grow,  

The branches bear fruit  

The Christmas season,  

A kissing mistletoe glance,  

Dancing and merry

Lonely winter land,  

Skiing with rain turned to slush,  

Tears turned to sadness

A warm sunny ray,  

A thrill that lasts to the end,  

Falling icicles

City lights sparkle
Orchard Road highlights;
Secular Christmas


Shoppers smile
Branded goods in tow;
Happiness galore


Crowded corridors
Congested malls flooded;
Black Friday postures


Time to attend
Mending broken hearts;
Gift of yourself


Buying agendas
Long To-Do List;
Indulgence shouts


Out in the crowd
Heart feels alone;
Things cannot fill


Christmas adds extra
Stress and strain flaunt;
Discrete permutations


Street corner vendors
Assorted wares tempt;
Come take me home


Bags in tow
Train ride home;
Fruitful spree


A familiar face
In the crowded mall;
Instant smiles tell


Child bargaining
Parental objection;
Enough is enough


Listen love calls
Can you hear music;
Hymns from faraway


Equatorial Christmas mood
Sun, rain and humidity;
Take air-con cover


Now face to face
Heart to heart;
Priceless giving

BE PATIENT (multiple haiku)

"brothers    it's Christmas
old people love Christmas too
hark the master's voice

one and all    hear me!
old people are beautiful!”
thus spake our preacher

“I want you to know
Jeeeezus loves all old people.”
says our fine shepherd

“if Jeeeeezus loves ‘em
then we have to be patient.”
shaking one finger

“in the grocery store
if you get goosed by a cart,”
the reverend smiles

“then    friends    by Jeeeezus
if you would go to heaven
turn the other cheek!”

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..
