A Delicate Balance

My Family

flowers are women
in my family’s garden -
Mom and her daughters

rhythm surrounds me
as I sway in contentment -
September’s Aster

Geranium Jen
bends graciously in the breeze - 
our southern comfort

charming Melanie
with her sunflower brightness
warms us with her smiles

Our sister Doris
the stalwart Gladiolus
will never fail us

With perseverance
Thea boldly holds her own -
sweet Delphinium

Mom at our center
a spiritual iris
simply inspires us

A forget-me-not
for my sisters and mother -
and roses of love


WRitten May 3, 2016 for the Haiku on "My Family"Poetry Contest of marvin celestial

(I used flowers that symbolized the traits of my sisters and my mother)

Inside a Japanese Garden: with added note

cherry blossoms fall
confetti cast to the wind
tumbling to the ground

orange koi swimming
summer rain upon the pond
lotus of soft blush

bamboo whispering
their voices sing at twilight
serenade the moon

fire fades from the sun
low upon the horizon
bowing to the sea
rays of light shimmering gold
sunset crosses the threshold

***I posted this series of Japanese writings at the request of Dale CozartHe saw the beauty of nature through these simple words on another poetry siteI thank you, Dale, and the many of you who now see it, tooIt was entered in a contest, but the judge thought it lacked 'punch,' and called it "insipid." 

A Nipponnet is comprised of three Haiku and a Tanka

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.

Note: Iranians/Persians Celebrate today, the first day of spring as their new yearWe call this day Norooz or Nowruz, it translates as New DayFrom my family to yours,  Norooz Mobarak...Happy New Year.

An Apiary Haiku

the old apiary my mind hums with recollections ------------------------------------- Review by Kazuko Nishimura ~ Haiku Masters ~ April 2018 By pairing the photo of an old, now abandoned apiary with this haiku, the audience can immediately imagine the sounds of bees buzzing around, working hard to create honeyFor the narrator, those buzzing sounds may confuse or distress his or her mind by bringing back old memories, but involuntarily remembering past events is something everyone can relate to, making it easy for the audience to connect with this workThe sound of bees buzzing and the soft light in the photo show hints of spring http://nhk.jp/haikumasters

Going~Haiku~Crazy

~GOING HAIKU CRAZY~

~~The Enemy~~
deep like the abyss
hating has drowned deep inside
pumping to get out

~~Anticipate~~
moment in the past
life will never be the same
future history

~~Feet Lust~~
please tickle my toes
caressing feel, in between
sweep me off the ground

~~Love Flows~~
love comes in circles
put them words right in my mouth
sweet like the river

~~Earth Core~~
deeper than a thought
waiting silent under ground
volcano loop hole

~~Silent Grave Yard~~
moon beam upon name
resting forever in peace
tears soon forgotten

~~Saved~~
darkness turning white
no where to run from now on
I belong to you

~Graffiti~
nature and it's will
boundaries between all battles
like a dead flower

~~Sweat or Honey~~
hot steamy liquid
yellow like a sun flower
flowing to release

~~Peaks Out~~
brown mountain rock soul
smells nothing like natures dew
wipe off till it's gone

ocean commotion

wind lifts salty air
scent of the sea fills my hair --
fishing without care

pelican dives fast
shrimp on the hook was my last --
strips the bait I cast

turn with quick motion
see crab stealing sun lotion --
ocean commotion

Haiku 48-54 Strolling along Palm beach

palm trees silhouette
against ocean's pastel hues
sunset's soft glow


misty horizon
oceans seperate his palm
from my tear
 


my floating sandal-
tumbling waves break
upon the shore



floating bubbles
before i tossed my pebble
dad breaks wind at sea




waves lilt upon the sand
coloured corals crunch
between our toes



low tide
dawn's golden shimmer reveals
a  coral reef




the tempest
a lone ship fades
in the mist




not for the contest but tnks Heather 
Ober and participating friends for 
the ocean haiku inspiration

GARDEN

GARDEN

Two haiku after a painting by Russell Gordon

flowering dogwood
perched and pert, a tanager
harkens to the wind

flowering dogwood
perched and pert, just listening
scarlet tanager
………………………………..

this plaster statue
she’s naked, white and demure
looking at a rose

her round, yellow hat
casts a shadow as she picks
transformation bloom

all is wet and wild
garden cowed by wind and rain
tortoise pokes its head


Repost

summer’s backward glance
reluctant to say adieu
one lonely white rose

Unnumbered Haiku Coloured In Red

scrubbing with her hands
red stains from the priest's collar
- strawberry picking


choosing wallpaper -
the red-breasted cardinals
in my shopping bag 



Last night of harvest - 
reflection of red blood moon
in his empty glass


red cherry blossoms
before next winter follows
-his last picnic morn 


soft vermillion  wings
flutter on her bare shoulder
- the first glimpse of Spring 


Its vermillion  wings
perching between  rose petals
sips of ambrosia 


scarlet wings  flutter
upon a dry corolla
unsweetened  nectar




Inspired by  Silent One 's haiku /senryu 5//7/5 syllables
