Soaring Hawk - A Haiku Series

Soaring Hawk poised high Back drop a deep sapphire sky Winds in attendance Mighty wings unfold Caressing the Wind Spirits They lift and support Circling Hawk perceives Rainbow circle on a cloud Framed is his shadow On oceans of blue Snow hills of clouds seem to float On silvered ripples Waves swell as they curl White manes gracefully flow Rolling to the shore Higher still soars Hawk Wind Spirits on either side Carry him upwards Land and mountains meld Lofty mountains crown the land Great aspirations Hawk gracefully glides Towards the shore he observes His island in bloom Festooned in colour Hibiscus - Red, Gold and Pink In leafy bouquets Flowers - Pale yellow Their sweet perfume exuding Riding on the Winds Romance in the air Couples hold hands and frolic An Island in love Hawaiian Hawk proud Sees everything - land and sea Paradise Island Wind voices whisper Of Rebirth, Growth and Culture Hawaii has heard
Footnote: We recently visited Hawaii, one of our favorite holiday destinations, once again we were carried away with the ambience and peacefulness of this Island Paradise. The inspiration came while viewing the breath taking panorama from the 16th floor of the Hilton Hawaiian Village Waikiki Beach ResortThe Waikiki beach, the beautiful gardens and the mountains all formed the pictureBut we needed a story and the Spirit legends supplied the theme All this came together and composed on the aircraft on our way back home to Australia. I have tried to capture and share some of the essence which is the Spirit of this beautiful island, its rebirth of culture that’s embroidered in the legends of a traditional Hula dance The Red Hibiscus (koki'o'ula) is the flower of the big island, while the Gold flower mentioned - The vibrant, sunshine-hued Yellow Hibiscus (ma'o hau hele) is Hawaii's official National flowerIn Hawaiian culture, Hibiscus is a symbol of old royalty & communicates power and respect The Hawk Kaha Ka ‘lo - the highest Chiefs where often called ‘lo – ‘Hawk with eyes that can see everywhere’ Ku Makani ‘Rising Wind’ has a position of power grace and motion. Ka Leo O Haukine ‘The voice of the Wind’, is so named. The two Winds according to the legend, are the voices of ancestors who listen and speak through the windsTogether they are the Spirits that uplift the mighty ‘Lo – The Hawaiian hawk. Some of the imagery described is seen from the aircraft as it would be seen through the eyes of the Hawaiian Hawk The circular rainbow, for those who have not been fortunate to have witnessed this rare phenomenon, it actually does exist.

REFUGEES






Come by the thousands

Hungry, desperate, each day

Greece's agony mounts!*

Home lost, new home found

Distant shores opening arms

Tears flooding the seas

*Thousands of refugees and illegal immigrants enter Greece 
each day in search of a better futureGreece, despite its economic 
crisis and with an unemployment near 30% and salaries and pensions

MINIATURE CREATURES AND NATURE

HAIKU #1-14 (Taken from my files totaling 12,016 haiku, started in 2/9/06)



Ants red as wine                                      A black spider seem to own
dine on yellow nectar                                squatter's rights right on
from a juicy mango                                  our front porch.

Day of rain and                                         A quiet gentle breeze brought
zero visibility, then                                     thoughts of Belize and
pastel evening sky                                   New York's Hudson.

Morning draped in silk                                 Drenched from his walk
of white as we await snow                          a lone man sat basking on
and sleet and cold rain                             bench in sudden sunshine.

In dreariness of winter                               Driving home by night
my philodendron buds stands                      I fled the signal of a white
erect and frozen                                     hand hitchhiking.

Earth held in traction                                 In temp of one hundred
by glistening silver moon                             a black bird basked
full like a balloon                                      in my shadow.

Blond rabbit pregnant                                 In dark of night 
with spunk often visit and                           With full moon bright
side with the husband                                military copters all in a row.

A spider sleeps all day                                 In early morn my pen
then wake up and work                                poised like stillness of
at post twilight time                                  trees awaiting breeze.

REOPENING OF THE SCHOOL

First day to school is very good for children like us, very cool.
We meet our new friends and old one’s too,
But we don’t know we should catch whom.
Children are excited to know the teacher,
As they need a good future.
 We come to know the rules of school,
So that we do not work according to us like fools.
We share our tiffins and tell our feelings,.
We ask last year’s percentage ,
To know whether the child is of good stage. 
We give our introduction lovingly,
So that everyone may know us clearly.
There is nothing to study much as its first day, full of fun.
We go home hand in hand ,
To remain life long friends….

((** Natures Nurse **))

Hot temperatures
someone call the spring doctor
cold fertilizer


((** Early Bird **))

Fresh morning light
sweet SAP falling on my plate
Lego my Eggo


((** Desert Rose **))

In the dead of night
One star sings me a sad song
cactus feels my pain

((** Looks that kill **))

What else can I say?
Intrigue me with silence
look into my eyes


((** Home Sweet Home **))

End of road
my final destination
Next stop Olympus!

((** Heaven or Hell **)) 

Leave all dirt behind
Welcome mat above sunrise

Baseball Game

Swing of the bat, contests
Fielders’ gloves, ball in motion, 
Run, slide, throw - called safe!

Innings are by turns,
Dramatic or biding, boxscores
Revealing  who’s up.

Catching foul ball strays,
Or in bleachers just catch rays,
Fans cheer, hoot and wave!

Hear “Smack!” a hit!
Vendors warble, “Peanuts and beer!”
Star spangled banner.

If you come early,
Ask for heros’ autographs,
Snap players’ faces.

Distance ‘tween bases,
Had to be divinely ordained,
Perfecting the game!

Whether the home team ,
Overcomes temporary calamity,
Makes or breaks dreams!

In Spring

Driving home from work, I watch the darkening sky and the trees along the streets bending in the windBig drops of rain begin to splatter against my windshield until suddenly, my entire car is being bombardedAs the moaning wind picks up, the downpour increases and I adjust my windshield wipers accordinglyNearing my neighborhood, I glimpse a foretoken of spring.

behind their mother
young quail scurry in a row
March winds scatter rain

Soon I am pulling into my driveway, wondering vaguely where the baby quail were bound for and relieved to be escaping the onslaught of cold wind-tossed rainMy spirit has been lifted by the sighting of the quail family, for I know better days are ahead

A few weeks pass, and I find myself becoming excited as I always do after April has arrivedI begin noticing the various plants and trees of my small city, in particular, the burgeoning buds of my own front yard  pear tree, and then at last it happens; I awake one fine morning to my favorite augur of the season:

outside my window
myriads of white blossoms
the trill of birds

LIJIANG IN YUNNAN, CHINA


SPRINGTIME MEMORIES



Mountain sentinels
By ancient town;
Clear waters cascade


Cobblestone streets
Winding pavements;
Trade offerings buzz


Fertile plains
Crystal clear waters;
Shady trees guard


Treasure-hunting stroll...
Through Lijiang Old Town;
Curiosity detours


So many things to see
Pleasant fare tempting;
Buying spree bargains


Artisans at work
Township flings open trade;
Silver metal everywhere


Older than 800 years:
Lijiang Town welcomes journeys,
Far beyond old silk route days


Modern day muse in-transit
Old town atmosphere;
Traced footsteps in awe


Wonder amazes wander
A world heritage city;
Precious ancient Chinese pearl


A gentle spirit strays here,
Preserved antiquity loiters;
Unspoilt living testament


Clear pristine waters gush
High mountain peaks preside;
Beauty frames this township


Spring waters flow non-stop,
Shared community well conduits;
Drinking, bathing, washing


Modern day irony:
Drinking water from taps;
Plastic bottled water


By the winding canals
Smaller streams circle around;
Waterways and arched bridges


Elegant old town greets
Tourists' camera shutter intrusion;
Gentle householders calmly polite


By this ancient arched bridge,
I wonder a thousand times;
So much to see in a short expense


We go around here
In circles winding zigzag;
Catch our breath from trekking


Memory can be short-changed:
I buy a few book souvenirs;
I will reminisce tour days later


Too soon morning turns
High noonday sun shines hot;
Cool breeze smoothes rough edges


Late evening darkness in Lijiang
Old Town in spring courtyard;
Colourful lanterns brighten


Buzz of evening vendors
A thousand offerings call;
Bazaar along the winding streets


Common folks with wares
Struggle to live a life;
Survival instincts ply


As I stroll by
Hear offers for strange stuff;
All manners of touting


I like these gentle people
Trying to make a sale;
Touting for a living


Our tour guide spreads
Good advice on-the-road:
Buy only what you need


Cascading waters flow
Through Ancient Lijiang Town;
Authentic tourist hotspot 


By ancient bridge photo snapshot:
Happy keepsake momento,
To reflect when I get home


Hand-in-hand we strolled
Through winding walkways;
My darling and I enroute


I remember that moment:
Springtime in May --
Lijiang kept fond company


Sensorial avenues
Memory instructs reality;
Journey journal pages


I write to highlight
To my self once more;
My own editorial times


One month back home now
June sprinkles hot and humid here;
How nice Lijiang's cool zephyrs?


Silver bangle from Yunnan
Solid white metal on my wrist;
Roman numerals add up to 78


Unearth my keepsake books
Yunnan in full colour;
Smiles amuse eyes feasting


Glimpses of old China
Surge and surge again;
Fond memories attend


Old weeping willow
Hunched trunk sighing;
Ancient times loiter

The Fox, The Wolf, The Coyote

A wizard of wild
Seasonal changes his world 
Sly and cunning games

Open fields are home 
To always play till days end 
Hunting more than sport

A flash of movement
Traces of his whereabouts 
Are scarcely a trail.

Magician of beast
Blending one within his own
Timeless enchantment

A graceful harshness
A beautiful wilderness
Harsh environments

An eerie silence 
Approaching from the shadows
Cloaked in mystery.

Fearless by nature
Radiant energy bounds
An essence of one

Playful and naughty
Shadows of monsters lurking
Elected by force

A challenge to live
Surviving in modern days 
Resilient by far.

Anthem

- Truth
Remember the truth,
Question those in government…
In full glory reflected.

- Mistake
To war is error,
To offer peace is sublime…
Bombs bursting in air.

- Belief
No matter how hard,
Stand up for what you believe…
O! say can you see.

- Responsibility
I love my country,
Like baseball and apple pie…
The home of the brave.

HERE'S THE STORY SINCE THIS IS based on a true story! LOL I was in the woods 
singing...pretending I could sing opera while resting on a bench...all by myselfAnd what to 
my wondering eyes should appear walking around with my free range chickens? You 
guessed it! A peacock! He must have thought I was a peahenLater, we found out he 
lived several miles away and had left home for few days...he stayed here until I left for 
Texas, which was about 3 daysHe must have loved my voice! OR RUNNING THE ROOSTER! 
lol Anyway, that was the inspiration for this haiku! Would anyone have guessed? lol

This Land is My Land

Pastoral country
Where folks wave to passers by--
Farmers plowing

Exit 386
Wal-Mart, fast foods, and hotels-- 
Tourists stop

Modern businesses
Of every type one might need--
The short road to town

Refurbished storefronts
With arts antiques and barbers--
Downtown businesses

Houses big and small
Fill the local neighborhoods--
Quiet streets

State Parks, music fests
And neighborhood barbeques --
Entertainment

Outside of town
Beautiful farms and woodlands--
The rural folks

The river rises
Bringing water to my land --
Children in kayaks

The home of brave hearts
Who understand nature’s way --
King and rattlesnakes

The home of the free
Where people are seen smiling--
Live Oak, Florida

from choir practice WednesdayThey were 
about 30 feet away from a pondShe has

Haiku I wrote in reference to this.

Will wave magic wand;
Deer will appear at the pond
Into dark will run.

First Date

Ball of butterflies;
knots of anticipation,
tickling me within.

Pick-up at 7;
ready to go around 8.
patiently he waits.

Off to the movies;
holding hands, clumsy and shy,
ever so awkward

Horror flick on screen;
sharing popcorn and candy,
snuggled in close.

Walking home slowly;
lean in;first kiss at the door,
foot popping galore.

View from my window;
Tender conversations

~~~~~~~~~


Mahjong games
Relatives chit-chat;
My winning streak

~~~~~~~~~


Touch of magic
Spring wind rustles;
Cheery blossoms fall

~~~~~~~~~


Moonlight stroll
Old arch bridge;
Squeaky wood groans

~~~~~~~~~


Two cats sit
Eerie moon glow;
February interlude

~~~~~~~~~


Business sold
Fortune gained;
Hollow feeling

~~~~~~~~~


Here's to good cheer
Another year;
Grey hairs draw near

~~~~~~~~~


Old footpath short cut
Patient feet chiseled;
Old habits die hard

~~~~~~~~~


Memories unfurl
Grass verge updates;
Poignant moments

~~~~~~~~~


Joy greets sorrow
Sad together;
Melancholia sings

~~~~~~~~~


Elysia calls
Going home again;
Sudden departure

~~~~~~~~~


Photo album
Old era relatives;
Sepia burnout

~~~~~~~~~


Study abroad 
Down Under Melbourne;
Kangaroo hop-scotch

~~~~~~~~~


Tinge of sadness
Stop to remember;
Fond times quicken

~~~~~~~~~


Airport terminal
Exquisite dine-in;
One for the road

~~~~~~~~~


Listless here
Holiday moods;
Mahjong punctuation

~~~~~~~~~


Toss of lucky food
Yu Sheng expose;
Fortune smiles

~~~~~~~~~


Words catch up
Meaning and motive;
Juxtapose

~~~~~~~~~


Spring season
Oriental red;
Chinatown tinctures

~~~~~~~~~

The Crustacean

edging to his home -
the sea - lone beach comber risks
life unknowingly


Here is a horrible haiku for ya, Ironic! Hope you hate it!
(for your worst poem contest)

Remembrance Day Poem

Remember them now.
Do not wait till later, but now.
Remember who paid.

Freedom has a cost.
We remember who paid it.
Do not forget them.

They fought, bled, and died.
Some never saw home again.
Remember them now.

They fought in the trench;
They fought, not played, on the beach;
So we could be free.

We remember you.
We shall not forget your face.
We thank you today.

Remembrance day is today.
Remember Canada came at a price.
Thank all those who paid it with their lives.
May we never take them, or Canada, for granted.
