Persian Haiku 2

           Persian Haiku 2

What a gorgeous view?
You and the flower garden,
I'm the butterfly.

I’m drunk with love,
Some are red and some are white.
I love all colors.

The sky is so blue.
You’re my rainbow through and through.
Oh dear, I love you.

Your eyes, the ocean;
The ocean, colors your eyes.
Your hair is the wave.

Moon on the ocean, 
Your face is the reflection.
Always be alone.

I live with my heart,
All flowers are beautiful,
I love daffodils.

What a discussion,
I had with all my flowers.
Their breath smells nice.

Haiku on My Family

Second Chance May 2016
Sponsor: Eve Roper

five generations
   connected to my grandpa
      kindred forefather

parents united
    unto them came four children
      love to go around

mother faced cancer
   a dear lady, my angel
      adulthood so strong

adoring siblings
   warmhearted and devoted
     affections of blood

money not vital
   wealthy in rich loyalty
      assets of true faith

our childhood dog Bo
   my sweet Golden Retriever
      my canine best bud

united as one
   roots form a family tree
     belovedly linked

Blood Line

my family roots
flange to three generations 
stand on a tripod

the grace of values
fondued by humble elders
half here and half there

the hopping second
have tales full of humour
vanishing the blues

the out cradled babes
tow blood line of bold and old
exposing its veins

Rabbit dens dug deep
Hides the family inside
From red fox entry!


Rabbits foot luck charm
From unlucky rabbit kills

early winter

early winter cold heat pump hums pumping warm air... skunk
There is a skunk in our area that is spraying in the early morning hours and the heat pump is picking up the scent and spraying our house.. Does any one know how to get rid of a skunk besides hitting it with a car or truck???? One advantage could be that it is keeping away enemies but maybe even family and friends..LOL

Christmas Without a Christmas Tree

Glittery Christmas
Filled cavity on my mind
Christmas ain't yet come


Sight flickering glare
Alternately trap my eyes
But shines ain't for me


Christmas, dear Christmas
Be the present of my tears
Tiny hug in missed


A tree full of lights
Shimmered warm, deep on my cries
Sad memories blinked


Pretty past inhaled
When time puts togetherness
Now just three of us


New family tree
The Santa's gift as mercy
God truly blessed me

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

My Family

                                           My Family

                  Peeping into past
               my reminiscence as child
                  displays dark shadow.

               Mom’s loud negligence
                 biased treat on my daily need
                      pricked my self- esteem.

                  But I was the pearl 
                      of my Dad’s hard core heart.
                     Grandma bestowed care 

                    A girl needs her Mom.
                  Painful childhood wept and wept
                      being deep deprived.

                    A lone fighter fought
                        to get herself established
                                on satisfaction.

                     Got fair scope to build 
                        my own family yielding
                              all treasures of heart.

                     Two brave brilliant 
                            daughters were blessed by God.
                              I showed light to them.

                      They reached their goals
                           now having own families.
                                 I travel alone.

Love Carries Me

Here's my happiness
I am rich beyond belief
Love light fills my days

Storms don't bother me
Let the rain and thunder come
With the strength of love
Mountains cannot rise so high
Rivers will not run as deep

Loved ones near and far
Precious family and friends
That's what carries me

Windy chill
Skin feels cold;
Hint of rain


Tropical sun
Cranky and hot;
Punishing heat


Grand harvest here
Nature provides;
Gratitude grooms


Busy street corner
People rush about;
Busy distractions


Train ride detours
Rush hour ventures;
No time to stop


Old lady limps
Knees buckling;
Decipher Ageing


Old photographs
Sepia story tells;
Dead mother's gaze


Memory resides
Old family album;
Still life portraits


Midnight alarm
Sleepy reminder;
Dreamy surrender


Polling station
Ballot box;
Secret vote


Sensory feel
Dreamy detours;
Misty mirage


Bamboo leaves
Windy rustle;
Hint of wetness

A Trapeze Flyer

circus performer a family tradition passed on to me a big top flyer Oohs and ahhs heard from below in the spotlight's heat higher I rise reaching for my partner's hands the moment of truth I hold my breath hundreds of feet above ground grabbing victory swinging freely after somersaults flying applause like music an entertainer my calling to defy laws of gravity

What Would You Do

What would you do if you knew this was my last day to live??
Would you try and save or let me go?
Would you even care for my soul?
What would you do if I was a fallen angel?
Would you still recognize me?
Would you talk to me or ignore me?
What would you do if I died?
Would you have a funeral for me, so all my friends & family could come?
Would you cry or even mourn a 'lil bit?
Would you care that I was gone, or would be happy?
What would you do if I was a ghost?
Would you feel me right beside you, guarding you, Watching over you, protecting you?
Would you see me?
Tell me would you walk all over me, or maybe even walk through me, as if I weren't there?
What would you do if I was a demon?
Would you still love me then?
Would you still care and forgive me?
Would you just say "You are stupid, and I hate you?"
What would you do if I were and angel?
Would you love me more, or would you love me less?
Would you feel me touch you, and comfort you when you need someone and you think noone is there for you, well that's a lie, cause I am right here beside you to catch you if you fall, to dry your tears, and to heal your wounds of any kind.
What would you do if I was still alive?
Would you continue to hate me, and call me sadistic names?
Would this world still be cruel?
Would there still be a rule?
What would you do?

My Life

My life is so perfect and true 
With you my love,
Noone else treats me the way you do.

My step-father treats me wrong, and blames everything on me,
Which makes me explode or say some things to people that I don't mean,
My mother is awesome, and she is my best friend, the only other one I can trust, except you.

I have never really loved anyone before you, except my friends, but never as much as you, my love

I can't imagine living in a world where you don't exsist,
If I had to I would'nt do it, I would die,
I just can't be without you more than 24 hours, I am glad we are in the same school, that way when I am grounded I can still see you, 
I dream and daydream about you every day and every night, 
I want you to cloud up my mind, so I can think of nothing else.
My life is simple, perfect, and true.

There are some people that I wished I could say sorry to for my behavior towards them, but I don't think they would listen,
It eats my stomach up, and I feel bad for my behavior towards them, but I know I can't go into the past and erase it, guess I just have to live though it,
It just puts more scars in my heart, because no matter what we are all family in God's eyes.

I can not hate, Dislike, or even Strongly dislike anyone, even though they don't like me or may hate me, I think of them as familySo I will say sorry to someone I go to school with, she deserves itI have 3 periods with her, so I will say sorry someday when I get the guts.

My life is so perfect, clear and safe to me

So my big brother
Samuel James, goes

I am

I am just matter
My skin made of flesh and blood
Life's own particle

I live everyday
A poet in misery
Seeking to find it

That which has been lost
That which can never be found
That which has no name

Know I what I seek
I would share it with you
Unknown it remains

Love I my own soul
Sure, for it is eternal
Though it is unseen

My life I do live  
As it is meant to be lived 
Following my fate

I am, obviously
I have a family name
I live, sure, I do

I do ask myself
Of the ways of this realm
Wait I for my death

Eager to see it 
The gate of eternity
To be with the Lord

In the end, you ask
Do I really know myself
I would say, I don't

I Will Never Be What You Want Me To Be

I know you may hate me,
I know I may have dissapointed you,
But I promise you, I can change.
Father I know I have lied to you,
I know that I may have disobeyed you, but
Can you please let that go,
Can we be a family again?
"I promise I'll be better, daddy
Please don't leaveIn a family portrait
We look pretty happy, we look
Pretty normal, can we go back to that?"
Those few lines were from P!nk's
Song "Family Portrait." Dad I promise
I'll try to be what you want me to be,
But I'll never be enough for you.
I'll never be what you want me to be,
I'll never be perfect for you,
Oh, yeah, and I'm sorry father If I don
Not live up to your expectations.

My family

My family

cultivated, groomed
as I cherish ways of life
my roots, family.

imprinted on mind
moments of togetherness
lived in ecstasy.

some of the sorrows
unsaid, embed deep in heart,
unfolded in time..

some bitter conflicts 
walking down memory lane
slowly skip aside..

through all thick and thin
counting on those silent tears
family stands by..

Just Question

Just Question

A woman without children.
An elderly did not find haven.
An orphan with no joy.
People living outside their homeland.
A life Without mothers.
A friends without loyalty.
A family with no connection.
- Is it just a disappointment?

Brand new stadium dome
Buzz of sporty flings;
Grass from a nightmare


Watch TV celebrity
Poignant role-play moment;
Crisis survivor


So much to say
Time lapse photography;
Sweet honey rhymes


Sensorial feel
Disturbing nightmare;
Sudden awakening


Seek peace of mind
In heart's temple;
Bring honest peace offering


Flash of insight
Surprisingly clear;
Complete with instructions


Inner demons prowl
Devouring disturbance;
Mental breakdown


Childhood intervention
Two slots per person;
Real, and second childhood


Old family photographs
Sepia memories captured;
Black-and-white brown shades


Voice of morning
Birdsong celebration;
Finesse well-sculpted


Silent prayer said
To greet new dawn light;
Mindful meditation

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.

Road Kill

A day with the family to enjoy lunch in a town close by..Heavy gray clouds, wind, and threat of tornados leaving thoughts questioning whether to go or stay..A day to do the unusual wins..The gun enthusiasts go to a gun show while the ladies shop..On the way the gray clouds seem weighty...

buzzards eat noon meal
road kill thrown in open field..
bradford pear death wreath

Sun emerges for a few seconds somber weigh lifts..

Heavy downpour
Wet departure;
Final moments


A family death
Sorrowful faces;
Painful hollow


Hands heavy
Supermart groceries;
Rainy way home


Hurl of new day
Voices call;
Outside in


Teary feelings
Late goodbyes;
Gone forever


Sparkle here
Boulevard trees;
Welcome home


Tea house culture
Invigorating flavours;
Potent brew


Eatery deals
Fine takeaway;
Bland happiness


Risky business
No time to lose;
Prosper well


Death delivers
A new legend;
Forever now


Gloomy skies
Soaking faces;
Hollow cold touch


Bamboo pines
Windy whispers;
Familiar echoes

Haiku On My Family, Tears Are Not Enough

Haiku On MY Family, Tears Are Not Enough

Tears are not enough
Your death became my last breath
Lost all my siblings

In yesterdays crash
they say texting while driving
caused your untimely

death, now I survive
no family left in life
Tears are not enough

I've got an empty
whole in my heart for you all
Sitting at your graves.

Song in the wind
Gentle reminder:
Rain through bamboo trees

Chirpy delight
Instant enlightenment;
Heavy heart uplifted

Postcard from somewhere
Far far away:
Greetings from long journeys

Old photograph
Faded with old times;
Ancient memories linger

My mother's gaze
My father looks;
Picture of the dead

Pain taunts
Sufferings preside;
Soon liberation sublime

Hospital visit
A sick relative warded;
Healing family support

Two yellow birds
Canaries on wood ledge;
Sing of fond love

got to see first hand
just how tall my hunter stands
keeping family close

saw Wrenna Bird Girl 
hugs and kisses for us all
wonder what she knows

if her Mother Bird
has a clue of how much she 
means to all of us

repeat the issues
and they will just stay alive 
into the new arrive

time has sucked for all
then we learn to un suck them
part of growing true

The lark swilrs in flight
Leaves felt force on gold -
Among family again


Green rolling down hills
Butterflies dancing in breeze
New heart finds old love


The wind ploughs the hills
Swallows swim to meet the sun - 
The sky sows rain seeds

Lightning throws fast ropes
Around thunders snorting fire -
Green grow grasses now

     Wondrous as can be,
My family is my life,
Supports me in life.

Always there for me, 
Caring for me at all times.
I am blessed with them.

So lucky to be
related to these humans.
Lord, I thank you now!

No matter if we
are having some hard times, they 
love me through and through.

I thank Lady Luck

this amazing kin.

Thank Him for Me

It was really me
Who you would love forever
I am with you too

If we would marry
How many children should be
In Our family

Boy and a girl
Would be perfect for us two
God had told us so

Up they both did grow
Had family of their own
Life is now complete

To heaven we went
God took us to be with him
This we thank him for

Love sets me free;
Peace be with you

Hey cutie pie
Curious eyes;
Lovely looks

Joy comes around;
Season change


Love wears a face
So full of grace;
Joy fills fond space


Wind in my face
Nature speaks well;
Fond touch of grace


A certain feel
Touch of warm zest;
Love styles fond poise


Joy wears a face
A happy smile;
A heart of gold


Faith knows the way
Hope works and prays;
Love takes you home

It's the simple life
bridges built in the country
long history wrote
