                         Fear overcasts hope

                     Terror has devoured Paris

                       Long is justice’s sword!*

Categories: death, fate,


I am the water
nursed toward the loving light
born to rise and fall

not the large wave crest
willing its way to the top
grasping at the sky

nor the sad whisper 
landing deep within the fog
grieving please not now

born to rise and fall
calmly reflect in the sun
I am the water

"The moment the wave understands that she is water, she loses all fear and enjoys much more being a wave, without a beginning and end".

     Having decided on eggs and toast for breakfast, I sat, chewing vigorously, mindlessly trying to come up with a decent topic for some poetryNothing came to me, so, using the excuse that a poem can be written about anything at all, I decided on Eggs and SuchI fear the breakfast was better than my poetrydaver

12 big eggs
11 white    one  brown
a dirty dozen

3 large eggs
two whole    one cracked
claw-like protrusion

butch egg
cracked    spilled his guts

hen house clamor
shotgun blast
wiley’s last heist

two over-easy
with bacon    toast
mamma for dinner

easter chicken
delivers jelly beans
rabbit raisins

RApE An heinous Crime

Blessed me as a Girl, why god?why me?
Its me or my weak soul?
Somebody can be so cruel, I didn't understand the semantics of life?
I couldn't resist strength to collide with them.
Was Woefully screaming but nobody could hear me!
Beyond imagination  I went through the obscured mystery,
Don't know why I faced and made a worst history.
Demolished my dreams and gambled my life,
I didn't elude with them in a baffling way with knife.

Escaping from them I darted into dock yard,
Merciless act of them traumatized me into ward.
Presbyopicaly they captured though was far away,
Vulgarismically commented, bestrided pain on my heart walking on my way.
Fuddling up all night with narco drinks, stenching badly.
Ridiculously unwrapped me, laughing at my situation, abusing me madly.

Raped me horribly turn by turn,
Fearlessly dared to touch my soul, don't know what did they earn?
Mentally harassed me, Physically damaged my body.
Fragmentized my mortality into pieces,
My body aching painfully.
Shattering stargazes, They spoiled my life!
If l would have survived, nobody would have married me,
Molested persona, nobody would have accepted me.
Characterized by obscenity, choked my aims.
****ing porcine's, You Wasted my life, fumbled my soul!

I was someone's daughter, someone's sister,
Implemented life's worst atrociously brutal twister.
Stealed my eyes interacting with my parents even,
Felt ashamed, I could not fulfill their wish.
Asswholer's, You forced me to suspend my life!

Without privileges, How you act like a devil?
Aggravating Crime indulged into your bloody job.
Tainted my image, left tears in my eyes,
Everybody afflicted with the last breathe of mine, waited for new rise.
With broken heart, fear petrified in me.
Intense mourning plagued entire nation.
Signs presaged bad news towards society, resulting into tension.
Lousy creatures, your Scuzzy brain should be smashed!

What did You culprits got out of it?
You drastically twirled my nerves.
You stated me as flaming hot,But  I wasn't a fire.
You crisped my breathe,Unlawfully ruined the virginity.
I curse you all those who still thinks that we are just your toys to play.
Don't think that you had any right to hold our strings of life.

Ocean of dreams with bursting tears.
I ditched to withstand with devils and daemons.
But now, Stop spreading the Epidemic disease from the root.
For the sake of humanity, Save & sanctify my beautiful sisters.
Jolt down in unity, before the matter cease
& den only I will be resting in peace.

Three Haiku for Cancer Battle

Miracles are clouds
Far away, untouchable
Yet we’re flying through 

The face of Divine
Hides quietly inside this
Haze of fear and doubt

So my hope remains
Throughout the breaks of sadness
That you’ll see your light

Poem Details | by Joyzel Mae Sotes |
Categories: courage, fear, love,


It takes a long voyage to find the right road
A battle field that everyone has told
Face thy fear though heart may be shatter unto pieces
It might be a facade so hold thy tears with fears
Bravery in you and likeness
Of a warrior named Achilles
Be with a mighty sword as you face thy opponent
Victorious duel without bafflement
Anxiety strikes for illusions of being apart
Afraid to lose you with julienne heart
Love me for real my childhood dream
Even when the scene of sunset meets the horizon with hymn
We are all too fallible
We do commit some tidbits of failures
But for eternity, you will always be my man
And I’ll give you my heart for the best I can
It’s a far smile from those halcyon days
Though we undergo labyrinth in many ways
And at times I become lachrymose and weak
Your tender affection is what my heart seeks
But never be at daggers drawn
Life is definitely accompanied with storm
It’s a promise that I will never lose heart for you
It’s a real love for you my beau

A Happy Halloween

A skeleton dances On top of an old coffin Evil pours through him A ghost prowls on by Looking for someone to scare Who’s the next victim A black cat sits near Superstition is his craze People fear his kind Bats scurry about By the moonlight they go on Seeking fearful kids The Jack-O-Lanterns Sit with their huge ginning smiles Wishing you Happy… A Happy Halloween!!

A Haku from my world-2014

The internal fire
searing away life's pain
change summers forest

born into the world
contemplating renewal
ice covered rivers

all seasons cycle
pain love life feeling anger
eternal rhythm

bright autumn color
death brings life and renewal
pain will fade away

hope reborn once again
upon springs breath fresh flowers
life from the seedling

universes wide
internal contemplating
fish climb the river

many seasons live
through trials tribulations
death birth renewal

thought sparks creation expands
reality comes

the high of summer
sun triggered mania floating
as raging river

hot summer sunlight
river deprived of water
emotion dries up

life's changing seasons
shortcoming in emotion
through seasons cycle

fading pain emerge
life simple delusions made
forever change seasons

universe expand
knowledge create and destruct
chill grow burning fading

depressions winter
ever turmoil emotion
ebb flow night day spin

seasons always change
contemplating life death
universe expand

spaced thoughts are crazy
emotion fighting the storm
neon night pale day

wrecked ships wander
through the winters fog & mists
silent channels drift

coming through turmoil
ride the storm the hurricane
expand horizons

pain processed is therapy
growing from rebirth

fighting sanity
come insanity take home
forever to heart

the thoughts that process
never ending demons will run
collision nova

turbulent wind storm
shutters thrown open release
fear pain life death love

consuming feelings
season driven tolerance
change in fall and spring

tolerance for mood
patience empathy perceive
winter and summer

collision course set
new medication hinders
emergence changes

therapy consoles
soul full of turmoil and change
growth changed perception

frustrated anger
hot and long like summers heat
burns living forests

lashed out judgmental
like frog tongues catch flies and food
and ponds clear water (narcissism)

racing through insights
visions clear from universe
emotion has passed

struggle the outside
fury within emotion
body change season

temperament wild
raging storms, fire burns, whiteout
collides in fury

a long time waiting 
an answer born in voices
science or spirit

invasion of dreams
war new names fear demons wake
interfere with life

reality changed
committed to a course plan
bumps along the way

mountains far distance
filled with peaks and valleys the path
treaded with caution

move forward future
never stepping back from fear
ghosts do not haunt me

The Cave

The cave underground
Chamber of darkness musk damp
Secure place__bat's home

Cave inside fireglow

Haikus with commentaries by Etiemble Translated by T Wignesan

Haikus by René Etiemble, with commentaries,  Translated by TWignesan 

(Taken from Etiemble’s only collection of poems (out of thousands which he burned in a fit of rage against the university in 1983): le Coeur et la cendre: soixante ans de poésie (the heart and the ash: sixty years of poetry)Paris: Les deux animaux, 1984, 158pHe had also published a critical work on the haiku.)

1.	Epigraph strictly intended “for the heart and the ash”:

For fear of dying
of leaving dear ones behind
he did die of fear

(As the above seventeen syllables, which forced themselves upon me in October 1983, do not contain any latent kigo nor patent kiregi, I can hardly claim they make for a (proper) haikuLet’s simply pretend that they are made up of seventeen obsessive syllablesPage 15.)  Pages 92-97:

2.	Haikus for Konrad CZYNSKI, Columbia University in the City of New York:

Millions of diamonds:
sun shines on this freezing rain.
Thousands of dead trees.

    “The length of the haiku which does not permit itself to be laid out with blank spaces within its three metrical units, (yet) here in France and elsewhere is presented as a tercet; I insist on preserving its original form and thus have let it run over two pages (in one line).” P94               

3.	Not a cloud in sky.
pond pitter patters: downpour?
burnt grass scent fills air.

4.	May winter be late
on these white flakes of April! 
Petals of flowers.

(a) Milling sea anemones
carnivorous under sea:
my field frozen under.

 (b) Milling sea anemones
carnivorous under sea:
field of frozen white.

(c ) Milling sea anemones
      carnivorous sea flowers:
      my field frozen under.

(Etiemble says even Basho didn’t always respect the 17-syllable countAnd adds: “Basho may never be able to say that in this page he didn’t recognise and approve (at least) ONE haiku!” Page 96-97.

Do not fear my friends

You cry when I sleep

Men and their few words

Categories: lost love,


He was gentle and soft
Like leaf painted fig tree
He wore patience like a coat of honor
Careful not spill words lest he  hurt a  heart  vulnerable
My first lover on Earth
Graced me like i was cup or glass
Tilted at the side  of the  table
Like an egg lifted off of  the tray
And  yet, i oh the unthankful!
Pushed  stones  and  rocks and caused hurt
Painted broken pictures  of what 'Us' would be
Stabbed him with words 
Who walked away from me
Like  swords drawn from an angry commander i..
I was still talking, hundreds of phrases  spilling  from my mouth 
Like an  angry psycho  maniac 
I  could calculate all the  things  i said  down to zero
But who is keeping count?

then  days past, after other days
days past..like passing winds and  written stories
the stories of  'Us' was a Cliche
And it never rained
i was  choking  into the  dryness of  the  air
warm as the coal from the  mines
It never rained and i could feel draught land  on ma home grounds
lacerated by the  unquenchable thirst of  what you used to do
do make me  feel...
My heart still holds tender  the  memories
Yet months pass when the two unraveled epics
would never be told
we hold still in silence
i never knew you...you never knew me
then months found  their  way into months
and years  their way into  years

And yet today i have been reminded
Of High School memories
When a  young woman found  no pride  in love
And no shame in words of the epitome of  her heart
I have been reminded to mend  the broken strings
To make  right my wrongs
And if  it fits the purpose
i will lift my feet to find him
hmm..fear takes  over
and  i hesitate
do wish me luck

Butterfly Haiku

Butterfly Haiku

Much fun I would have

If I were a butterfly

On nice haiku tree.

Sure seems so little

Was born with beautiful wings

To attract a mate.

Had found a flower

Which was pretty as can be;

Like no other one.

Days start and are done

And butterfly that I love

Went to sleep in bed.

Wings beat back and forth

As he flies from here to there

With no fear or care.

One day he did die;

My beautiful butterfly;

Life had reached an end.

With pastels in hand,
I paint the life of the sea...
in sunny Capri.

Giant Cyclops settled here,
and fishermen still fear them...
legends become real.

Mermaids sing with lyre,
luring them in your cold deep...
as images appear.

Balcony moods
Morning offering;
Song of bird duo

By the yard edge
Bird frolic twitter;
A cheery quartet

Song fills dawn
Sunlight slants;
Window view sparkles

Last night's rain
Wet grounds betray;
Uneven footsteps traced

Joy after sorrow
Traces of old grief;
Ushered out abruptly

Old sepia memories
Silver nitrate etchings;
Old time photography

Haunting faces preside
Mother and father;
Yesterday's courtesy

Today flings
Doors wide open;
Strangers in paradise

Prayers on altars
Everywhere we go;
Living burying the dead

Can you hear
Sounds of old strains;
Voices calling in echoes

This life we live
Takes sterner stuff;
Hope feeds effort

Do you notice
A common melody;
Swirling time after time

Mundane routines
Calls time for after shocks;
Trauma feeds norm

When I listen
Do I hear
Sounds in the silence

Trip to market
Buy and sell;
Barter for things

Hate is fear exposed
Let love attend trade;
Poverty lives painful hatred

Look up and see
Dawn in a flash;
Insight reveals truth

Poem Details | by Üzeyir Lokman CAYCI |
Categories: inspirational, lost love, nostalgia,


You live in your own inner city, which you bought in a 
silent auction.
You were again unable to cancel your debts.
Under your blackening eyelids you try to feel certain 
Without noticing your withdrawal from self, you leave for 
distant parts
by using your ropes of thought like a ski-lift.
Your shudders increase as you touch the numberless elements.
In your screams at the moment when you feel the jolts 
from the echoes
of your words crossing the threshold of your thought,
you send birds fleeing before youAs you breathe, your 
roses wither.
In your moments of madness, crystals fall from your roof.
As your field of thought shrinks, your city expandsYou 
exhaust yourself
from running down the streets and avenues.
As the lamps of your voltage machines alight upon your 
your humans robotize themselves.
The toads in your dirty waters frighten even the crocodiles.
Your inner journey makes you grow older.
Your internal cries amplify themselves.
You manifest difficulties with forty paws.
The auxiliary cells of your laboratories do not give you
the opportunity to live any pleasurable moments.
While the fear indicator inside you slackens you through 
and through, you 
have not
even the possibility of speakingWith each movement of 
the clock,
the seasons rip themselves out of your heart.
Your solitude traverses your spirit without cease.

Poem Details | by Peter Little |
Categories: depression

dark haikus and tenkus

a heavenly voice 
whispers from within my wrist
I carve to hear it

she has chosen to be mine
out of our passion
a child is created
my son is born dead

the portrait of love
has become a charred picture
the colors have dimmed

as her life withers
my agony flourishes
my black heart decays

the angel of death
has come to take me away
two destinations
to which one shall I be sent
I fear the outcome

when she shows her face
angels hang their heads in shame
men fall to their knees
ethereal loveliness
she'll never want me

I purchase a gun
then take it back to my home
and load one bullet

why won't she depart
she exists in the blackness
when I close my eyes

when it rains fire
Christian priests take shahada
belief is fragile

I weep from her death
too beautiful for this world
even for Heaven
