Sound, Hues and Juice

   a gentle breeze
   tinkling wind chimes
   her voice

   within her eyes
   the sky

   sunlight gleams 
   upon the stream 
   her flowing hair

   rose petals
   cheeks and lips

   down her neck
   peach juice and kisses

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

A Light-Hearted Christmas

 late at night
 a shepherd
 woke his wife

 I saw...heard
 angels sing
 in the sky!

 it’s the wine
 she mumbled
 or UFOs!

L'Origine du monde

                                            L'Origine du monde
                                       smegma musk odors of clit
                                            pervade my night sky

L'Origine du monde, the first realistic painting of a vulva in Western art (Oil painting by Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet 1866, Paris: Musée d'Orsay )

"I am fifty years old and I have always lived in freedom; let me end my life free; when I am dead let this be said of me: 'He belonged to no school, to no church, to no institution, to no academy, least of all to any régime except the régime of liberty."(Jean Désiré Gustave Courbet)

Rainy day clouds
Ominous shades;
Wet, wet, wet


Dawn unzips
Light spreads far;
New birth unravels


Sleepy face murmurs
Echoes of last dream;
Blurry awakening


Coffee brew
Caffeine fix lingers;
Eyes wide open


Hibiscus florals
Pink, orange and red blooms;
Bright sensations


Stylish flower shoppe 
Punctuates busy avenue;
Brilliant conversations


Meal time escalades
Hunger pangs loiter;
Food court queues


We are prisoners here
Minding our business;
Mental cells confine


Draft after draft
Regurgitate old biases;
Emperor's new clothes


Bamboo grooves line
Passageway to nowhere;
Meet you there


Moon gate moments
Lavish garden tryst;
Find hidden gems


Pleasure is nice
In simple finds;
Beauty shows


Ants crawling round
Winding worker procession;
Purposeful ventures


Home kitchen commotion
Awesome flavours;
Discerning moments


In a fond touch
Homely welcome;
Purge all pain


Drama entertains
Catchup TV;
Feisty commentary


Digital age flings
Gadgets and tablets;
e-Everything booms


Crazy greets touchy
Dramatic escalations;
Zigzag world alarms


Late night silence
Stormy rain hurling;
Sleep comes quick


Routines prescribe
Certain repetition;
Muse finds room

Joy strokes fine cheer
Love speaks clear;
With you my dear


Quick getaway

Poolside banter
Rest and relax;
Catchup on reading


Sensory meal times
Extravagant spread;
So much to share


Treats for two
Explore lazy daze;
Bali glimpses


Spaces in-between
Wind in the breeze;
Paradise echoes


Rural and rustic
This island frolic;
Magic moments call


Mountain trip
Climb to the top;
Hide-and-Seek sun!

Nature speaks
Misty rain and thunder;
Elemental waves


Stormy weather
Freezing damp;
Igloo moments


Stranded here
No umbrella cover;
Long track home


Overcrowded shelter
Corridor passage chaos;
Torrential rain


Makeshift parasol
Box carton head dress;
Soaking wet


Bamboo pines exposed
Scenes from Oriental painting;
Rain invigorates


A touching craft
Miniature book hand made;
Profound cuteness


Spring cleaning
Christmas cuckoo coming;
Alleluia blessings


Once again we hear
Old familiar carols sing;
Peace to all mankind

Wedding Visitors

visitors arrive
during Chicago’s snow storm—
warm fire inside

the Florida-boy 
wearing short sleeves and jeans—
snow angels

mother and father 
shouting, “Wear your jacket”—

ice on the front steps
beneath foot long icicles—

the oldest son
cooking jambalaya—
guests inhale deeply

the step-mother
staring outside from upstairs—
snow drifts

children and sleigh bells
laughing as they speed down hill—
sudden stop

The New Orleans Saints
playing on her wedding day—
Cajuns watch

the wedding party
lining up for their entrance—
the Saints won

Categories: death,


trees outside
heavily laden with ice—
night rain continues

a plump woman
shivering, teeth chattering—
near the fireplace

the door opens
and gusts of cold air burst in—
the nursing home

my grandmother
lying in bed starving—
no food allowed

I watch helplessly
while her bony hands squeezed mine—
ninety-eight years old

after nine days
I hear Grandma’s last gurgle—
crying and one kiss

Two sparrows sing
A morning psalm;
Tender awakening


Calm air feels cool
With dewy scent;
Green grass velvet


A profound thought
Now comes to mind;
Succinct message


Morning stroll
Seeking nutrition;
Food for thought


Active brisk walking
Four kilometers around;
Morning mantra


Newspaper headlines
Another casualty;
Violence erupts


Sensational news
Scandals and crimes;
Dreadful persuasions


Here with a book
Positive focus;
Personal psychology


A bit of verse
To bring feeling;
Healthy and wise


Listen and see
A better way;
Love brings light


Experience now
Curling laughter;
Groovy feelings


Aura of dawn light
Sparkles new tint;
Moving pictures


Words can heal
The way you feel;
Discern just how


Quiet conversations
Words not needed;
Stillness presides


Experiential moment
Glimpse beyond thought;
Feeling fragment


Loiter and linger
Wonder in sure wander;
Easy encounters

By this street corner;
People investigate


Long haul flight
Holiday sight-seeing;
Brief topography

Brief message
Wind blows this way;
Listen well


Year ends here
Airline tragedy;
All aboard dead


So much pain
Year-end debris;
Heartaches mourning


Once again
Violent bad weather;
Frightening nature


Flotsam debris
Choppy sea waves;
Swirl dead bodies


Wet monsoon violence
So many lives lost;
Tragic endings


Words cannot contain
Sadness and closure;
Nightmares taunt


Traumatic episodes
So much of pain;
Issues unresolved


To venture forth
Try unknown fate;
Life bears risky moves


Dance to the light
Free from old chains;
Let soul rejoice


Loss brings pain
Terrible and true;
So much suffering


Here and now we pray
For peace to find;
Lead us back home


Tragedy starts
Humanity mourns;
Healing will come

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

Haiku Calendar

Haiku Calendar 
(January to December in the Southern part of the U.S.A.)

snow and more snow falls 
cold wind and more cold wind blows 
all branches are bare 

starving and weak birds 
a chill grips before sunrise 
fall from bare branches 

warm afternoon wind 
thin morning ice melts on pond 
a song bird is heard 

poppies hide in grass 
drink from early morning showers 
bees drink from open buds 

warm ruffles new weeds 
clover covers budding ground 
crickets find their song 

hawk hunts small rabbit 
green hedges give good cover 
blood drips on clover 

sun waves off dark soil 
flowers grow only in shade 
bees hive drips sweet wax 

in shade cow chews cud 
waits for dark to find water 
sleeps on top of mound 

east winds pull cool rain 
quinces bright hill flowers thirst 
streams roar then fall quite 

squirrel hides acorn 
digs hole at foot of oak tree 
barks at gray wet sky 

leaf fall from elm tree 
vacant bird nest are exposed 
geese sound over head 

deer move over trail 
fawns loose baby spots and jump 
graze on holly leafs

Cicadas celebrate 
Wet Monday evening;
Frogs for company


Sun falls down
Evening supplication;
Sleepy earthlings rest


Moody intersection
Traffic congestion;
Decorative city lights


Speak in silence
Night owl hoots;
Silent night


Notice the stillness
Greeting with calm;
Voice beyond voice


Walking by old house
Collective memory tints;
Melancholic shades


Once again dawn hurls
Birdsong melody;
Bay window serenade


Gifts and presents
Magnificent food spread;
Come Lord Jesus


Sea of faces
Hungry expectations;
Festive moods 


Balcony view
City lights glimmer;
Night sweeps away


Once again dusk
Ushers restive sighs;
Wine and good music


Misty rain dance
Children exploring wetness;
Laughter echoes

Dreamy mid-flight


Echoes of home
Familiar laughter;
Peace of mind

Cold winds taunt

Natural music

clop clop hooves on stone
stomping rhythm moves and jerks 
smooth step spirit stride

haiku a broken red moon

                                                     a broken red moon 
                                             pigs out on  three sandwiches
                                                 cheese new crescent full
