He Had to Start Crying

He Had to Start Crying

Was terrifying,
So he had to start crying;
People were dying.

The hopes and fears of all the years
Did not create any crocodile tears
Were real as can be each and everyone
What if had been your daughter or son?

James Thomas Horn
Retired VeteranPoet and Father

My son was killed in a fishing accident
and my father was killed in an accident
on board Aircraft Carrier IntrepidI know
what I am talking about and doubt if
some others do on TV discussions.

Trinity HC

three divine beings
two perceived in human form
    one sacred spirit

When is it that three entities can truly be seen as one?
When two are the Father and Spirit and the third is the Son

My Family

Five long decade past
Two unique souls become one
Create nine off springs

Differ in nature
Attain success though deprive
Unjust ridicule

Loving father rest
Siblings help one another
Eldest do his part

Mother love persists
Take good care of her children
Struggle is normal

Teaching to be still
Poverty cant halt fulfillment
Happiness goes through

Everyone has choice
Take and finish course at once
Make each dream come true

Love and light in us
Sharing them all to mankind
Noble task to do.

Poem Details | by Lamptey Godson Kofi |
Categories: uplifting



In this house of yours
The air brews of peace
That long, we longed to feel
That atmosphere of dreamed love
What a father gives us, babies
Open like ripen fruits of a great fan palm
To which ants throng in chains
To which bees throng in droves
And we humans hunts hungrily
Only for the comforts we cherish
From you great King of people.

The heart of our souls
The Soul of our hearts
To which our chords are anchored
Never snap to let loose of us
As this world is too open, too cruel, too blind
Ready not to favour orphans
Without a link to your dream for us, live
So in perpetual flow
Cover us, our shade
Protect me, my armour
Father them, the mentor.

To make our song complete
Been composed of you, Togbui Kporku

Categories: death



For decades this dung fouls the air
Sabotaging our sniffs of the dew scents

The peace we know had risen against us
Standing on our toes like a prodigal Son

Calling from Afghanistan to Pakistan
Dirges for our generation

It has been long, it has been painful
And endlessly, there was one thing

Everywhere of our nooks
His calls sounds bells of hell

His quests smells like blood
Splashing it on every white tomb

Not knowing he exalts martyrs bones
They died in blood of ice

Cold and innocent
Ah, Ah, Ah! those bullets

Thanks he took the last roullette
The end of Osama

A birth of a Lion King, the reign of Obama
Dear world, Offer me a gourd of palm wine

To plead the fishes to mourn him to eternity 
Till father grant him a final hearing

As I wait for his reincarnated soul.

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

Poem Details | by Leon Enriquez |
Categories: change,


Words in e-ink
Suffocate dry throat;
Waiting to emerge


Adopt that happy stance
Look cheery just for now;
Appease prompt bluff


Books for the journey
To look and see and glimpse;
Suspect sheer gravity


In my dreamy glimpse
My mother smiles a sigh;
Familiar territory


In another dream
My father says to me:
"What you need is a beer."


Too many dreams of late
Broken record-player;
Soundless music affairs


I learn to know
The truth somehow;
Who can be so sure?


Facial salon spa
My darling finds meaning;
Revitalized countenance


Upgraded old mall
Facelift sparks a blitz;
Crowded escapades


Look beyond just looks
Rearrange sure bias;
Look with eyes made new

Infanticide of a girl

                          Girl born hinterland

Linger here then
On restless shores;
Support lost causes

Sooner not later
Tides change;
Not always better

Politics like jam
Or peanut butter spread;
No use without bread

Speak softly
Mutter wisely;
Politically correct

Once in a while
Truth entertains fear;
All hell breaks lose

I think of you
All the time;
Retrospective anthem

Listen and learn
My father said;
He's dead, I'm afraid

Loiter and see
My mother said;
She's dead, it's true

Strange voice tone
Less dreary than me;
Out of this time zone

Mr Eliot he said:
"Mermaids don't sing to me;
I wake up and I drown..."

Thinking makes sad
Feeling turns bad;
Know now I am mad

Thinking and feeling,
Doing No-thing;
Enlightenment comes

Look now
Don't stare;
Then you'll see

Happy couple
Old man and old lady;
Eyes like newly weds

Old sepia photo
My mother stares;
Lost in a glimpse

One from the moon
The other an alien;
Two lovely strangers

Another sepia moment
My father stands;
Old flamboyant tree

Old fashion ideas
From another era;
Black and white tones

Digital pictures
iPad photos;
Edging sepia shades

Wet market floors
Slippery footsteps;
Fish mongers laugh

Vegetable vendors
Offering more greens;
Sultry beauty looks odd

Joy ventures here
Food court salvation;
Sensorial ingestion

Shop for seafood
Meat and poultry;
Food commotion loiters

Fancy vintage shoppe
Miniature books galore;
Rare collector's keepsake

July wind taunts
Wet fragrance swirls;
Grey skyline looms

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.

Serious Poem II

Only one of the haiku poems below is seriousThe others are frivolousCan you spot the serious poem?

lines run lengthwise, criss-crossing
lines of latitude.

A "friend of the court,"
or "amicus curiae,"
is no friend of mine!

For perfect haiku,
you must check your syllable
count religiously.

You can run, but you
cannot hide, from the sweeping
hand of Father Time.

The four in boring
salesman suit pants were foreign-
born ring salesladies.

I tuned my Toro,
programmed my Panasonic—
then mowed through Matlock.

Two young lovers
Seeing eye to eye;
Ecstatic romance

Promises made
Language of love;
Reality can be harsh

July sun-bathing
Local fruitage surprise:
Durians, mangosteens, rambutans!

Two yellow butterflies
Zigzagging flight path;
Bourgainvillea landing

Sweet nectar sip
Momentary focus;
Long haul to tall casuarina

Old banyan tree witness
School boy quarrels echo;
All gone away

Time passes quickly
So many ambitious kids;
Now preside over meetings

Old school mates 
Chance encounter;
Discuss happenings

Witty old father checks
Vivacious mother tags;
Facebook excursions

Fancy smart phones
Tablets for dummies;
Slow learning curve

Purple flowers
Creeping vines on fence;
Morning salutation

Morning Glory flowers
Here at dawn;
Gone by dusk

Sapora Rifka

Hello all! This next poem is a very special poem because it was written by my father when I was very young and because of him, he has passed his talent to write poetry down to meThis poem is called "Sapora Rifka" or Hebrew for "singing bird" (Yes, I new fact about me is that I am Jewish :P) Anyway, please enjoy "Sapora Rifka" by my father!

Despite the Chelsea,
Ever arrayed and a keen,
Sapora Rifka soars high above the world she lives in.
Childlike in her disposition.
Sapora Rifka finds joy in harmonizing what she sees.
Sports Rifka, my little fatal;
On key to sing her many songs of praise.

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

Lost and found
Santa Claus;
Stuck in chimney


Holiday moods
Shopping sprees;
Love feels unloved


Nice gift wraps
Costly purchases;
Absent heart


Booze and buzz
Too much fuss;
Christmassy detours


King of Love
Waits outside knocking;
Unnoticed alone


Who are you?
Yeshua or Christ:
Excuse for Christmas


Choirs sing
People entertained;
Ritual celebration


Town decked
Christmas moods jingle;
Fake snowy winter


Equatorial Xmas
Too much commotion;
Buying and selling


O Great Spirit:
We call upon You;
Bring Christmas back


May your days
Be merry and bright;
Start with true heart


Let us pray:
For world peace,
Piece by piece


Let peace begin
Right from each heart;
Let hatred end


Peace on earth
Goodwill to men;
Christ's Love now heals


Thank You dear God
For all things good;
Love understood


Year-end blessings
To one and all;
Death to all hatred


My Christmas wish
To my fellow men:
Peace and Love and Joy


And when I pray
Let my heart find soul;
Dwell only on love


Dear Father of all:
Help us to know You
Through loving-kindness


Gratitude speaks
Love embraces;
It is as it should be

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

O Father Of Mercy
Wash out this grief you shower
Over me and the land,

Ring out the spirit
And Saturday our love's weeks
Like light through locked twigs,

Beyond the puddled boy
Crying in vain for solace
Sung all about him

With worried weather,
Arise in your emptiness
Head-high like the sun.

Stars are for darkness.
May each night blanket blessings
Down Heart's corridor

And the floors of joy
Shift shapelessly through lives
Like mud on apples

In a woven dreamland,
Floating as God's single thought,
Making rich your harmony

As the cross flies off
And the Bible loads squirt guns
And "grace" replaces "debt"

Replaces tongue and
Speech in swirling compassion
Viewed from your own chair

You made from pictures
And lightbulbs and fake noses
And dusty open cheer

Up! The baby smiles
Your world of grief has shattered.
Light has pierced the dark.

Abandoned and sad but not broken

My father has left
Though it is not in this world
But deep in my heart

He has left his girl
All alone in this strange life
To fend for herself

Why has he done this?
Because he has other loves
Things he likes better

I am unwanted
I am abandoned and sad
But not broken

God is my Dad
He will not leave me alone
With Him I am loved

Love of God in Our Life Haiku

Love of God in Our Life Haiku

Life continues on
Until all of it is gone
Returning to God

Our soul shall survive
In heaven it will remain
Just as God had planned

His Son comes again
To save all of us from sin
As His Father said

God's love does exist
When we will believe through faith
Like others have done
