REAPING SEX a simple note

     REAPING SEX  a simple note

If you wink an eye
At Fame’s restless lonely mate—
Prepare for a storm

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


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

Brewed tea
Wife and myself
Nothing between us
He was metamorphosed 
Into a frog
When his wife had left him
I needed
A lonely woman
Thousand years back
She shivered
In yellow sun
Struck by her coyness
God travels
With three suitcases
One for me
I kissed
Her frostiness 
And my lips turned icebergs
The bed
Gets embarrassed
At our nakedness
Her hands
Stopped me
To pick evenings
We two rested
In a cave of Kundalini
Behind the waterfall
The alien woman 
Travelled six moons
To deliver her baby in a burial ground 
An eagle swoops
On a field –mouse
Tables of wedding
The woman kissed me
I felt her hollow ribs
As if in a spring dream
The woman’s hair
Struck by a gale
Made waterfalls
My wife locked
Me one fine evening
In my neighbour’s hole
The rats are away
When mice take in
My wife’s clammy face
The summer rain
In exasperation
Took wings to raid the moon
Lolo my wife
Her green sleek steps
Thundered an innocent fly
In the dead of night
God made two wives
One for me one for my neighbour
My neighbour’s wife
Delivered a child
When I was asleep
The woman said goodbye
And I took a fish for dinner
I mistook it for my wife
My wife is a canvas
Where I paint
My forebodings
A painter’s apprentice
In sheer foolishness
daubed in red my wife’s rear-view
A squirrel saw my wife
And in haste
Lost her guava 
I was caught in neighbour’s bedroom
By my wife last summer
I lost my glasses
A wolf entered the graveyard 
And annoyed my wife
Sarah my wife
Dizzy commuters
Sarah wed me
And in brief forgetfulness
Greeted my neighbour
A tiger ate Sarah my wife
It happened by accident
The tiger knows
Morning bell
Wake up call
I want to sleep
Pola my pet fly
Fouled things up
She ate my wife’s breakfast
My dog Pintu
I set him free on my wife’s posterior
Eons ago a butterfly
Gave birth to my wife
Now, a caterpillar 
A hard slap
Hurricane Sarah will win 
You have gathered enough winters 
Woman sighs
Leave one for me
The woman flapped her wings
To clouded mountaintops
Silky as white

Categories: analogy,



when being inside
not sitting out  -   looking in
what a difference!

birth from the middle
what a struggle     what bawling
on the loss of warmth

see the burning bush
marvel at what is inside
lifetime of searching

view of a manger
with mother and babe inside
behold!     the star

a lonely moment
left out of everything
what is life about?

Miss Foxy and Hound

Miss Foxy and Hound 

The fox senses spring,
The hound is too tired to fight,
Conflict delayed, friends.

The hound hides in wait,
How smart are you, Miss Foxy?
Nature in action.

The fox loves to play,
The hound takes his role to heart,
Frustration sets in.

Lone opossum roams in.
The Hound comes to Foxy’s aid,
It’s complicated.

Cherry Blossoms bloom,
Foxy outsmarts Hound again,
The Hound likes his friend.

Autumn winds blowing.
They both know their time grows short,
Hound will miss Foxy.

Winter winds bite deep.
Foxy thinks of Hound, fondly.
It’s a lonely time.

The circle of life,
‘Twas just a matter of time,
The reaper commeth.

Spring winds blow, sadly,
Foxy searches for her friend,
Silence all around.

Miss Foxy now knows,
“My foe is gone!”, with a tear,
I will miss you, Hound.

Endangered Species

                 Girl in red, a dress
                 Pleated down to her knees, skips 
                 Down the lonely street.

                 Man in black beret
                 Sunshades set on face, striding
                 Down the narrow street.

                 Girl turns, sees this chap
                 Hurries her steps, man does so too
                 Girl runs, man runs too

A lonely man

A lonely man
Without rhythm 
A doomed man

Poem Details | by Iris Elizabeth Sankey-Lewis |
Categories: adventure, feelings, longing, love,


Gulf breeze chime my chimes
What I say here pass it on
Spring fling beckoning.

Infatuation -
A cat chases its own tail
Love begins at home.

Elusive wind blows
Bliss is like falling in love
I claim nostalgia.

Wrapped kisses with rose
A lonely hunter shivers 
Love last a life time.

Token of Regret

Sparks fly, flames ignite
intoxicated passion
follies of greenness.

Haste vows in wishes
rapid change adaptation
birth of an angel.

Smoldered brawl outburst
pen scribbles by gavel's call
Fire sizzles then drown.

Comes winter anew
tears of the lonely angel
token of regret

Dovey Annie

Painful long night passed
Tears on pillow ran many
Dreams forgot to come

Sun came through window
Found lonely suffering heart
Healing wound at once!

cold, lonely mountain
kissed by calm crystal waters
soul mates forever

Heartfelt Haiku

long, pale, soft white necks
tantalizing blue blue eyes
giggling joy smiles

sent of the green sea
revives the lonely grey souls
cuddles endlessly

we lying next to us
kindness, tenderness, warmness
embracing lovers

an entwined union
two bodies converted one
heartfelt memories

Night Time Divorce Benefits


empty spot on bed
with TV remote in hand
she sprawls across it


He used to steal every top sheet
and the blankets that covered her feet.
But now that he’s gone,
all the covers stay on.
Even sleeping, she now finds life sweet!


Divorce might leave a gal lonely and poor.
At least, she won’t be aroused by a snore.

Wind Snow Seagulls

Wind howling forlorn
thundering through the tree tops
branches crashing down

Snow swirling, whirling
coating all in pristine white
like diamonds glinting

Hear the lonely shrieks          
as seagulls twist and hover
over the fishing boats

Categories: change,


By the wayside
A story-teller charms;
Exquisite tale of old


Path of uncertainty
Change springs a cast;
Innovative ideas hurl


Loiter and linger
Upon these lonely shores;
Waves crash the beach


Listen for a glimpse
From unknown scenes;
Mellow music hints


Heavy mall traffic
Sea of faces swirling;
Waiting the sales kill


Bus number 197
Double decker sighted;
Bound for Alexandra Village


Bazaar book stall
Old leftover tomes;
Weathered lessons await


Talk of war again
Outbreaks somewhere again;
Spirits rebellious


This weary world riddled
Such fiery war-mongering;
Profit for the arms trade


If you must ask
You do not know;
Poetry wears intent well


Dreamy dispositions
Watch the falling rain;
Cold clearance coming

The Cave

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

Cave inside fireglow
Outward facing light Aspens
Golden yellow hair

Cave fear slow echo
Hollow blank lonely scarey
Empty dreams no hope

Running out of syl-...

Dog sits on floor,
Hairy dog sits on floor,
Cat sleeps on floor...

I like drinking cola,
It makes me go very hyper,
It is very funny...

Cardigens and teeth,
Makes a granny very very sweet,
Thay always scare me...

The green bin with bag,
Sat lonely on the carpet,
In the English room...

Dusk and Dawn-Split Haikus

sunset spins sad sky 
in raging red and crimson 
fireball waves goodbye 

birds fly to their nest 
a tiresome day ends at dusk 
night fills with moonlight

smiling stars appear  
nude night dresses in calmness  
wind mummers to moon

new day born at dawn 
sunshine brightens lonely sky
new hopes come to life

The Lone Seagull

The Lone Seagull

Lone Seagull flying
gliding in the gentle wind
on a lonely night

With only the moon
to light his path as he flies
in search of the truth

How piteous life is
to quarrel for a morsel
when there's other way

In his solitude
he discovered his purpose
there is more to life

It's a lonely path
but one he chose to take risk
to test his limits

Gulls are born to fly
to soar high and touch heaven
where real freedom lies

This poem was inspired by the Novel of Richard Bach "Jonathan Livingstone Seagull"

Double haiku

love is in the air
gifts of love seen everywhere
lonely heart sulking

a heart beating fast
wishing for a valentine
tears line lonely eyes

This day of love
Gave me scary wounds
I just ask you, why me?

Four Snowflakes

Four Snowflakes
One little snowflake    
hits the river so gently    
then gone forever.
One lonely snowflake
descends into the river
nevermore to roam.
One cold white snowflake
comes flying in the windstorm
adding to the load.
The last snowflake falls    
making chills that last too long    
settling on his grave.

The Lost Song of the Dawn

Rustic saint had wept
Only loved the lonely bird,
Who flew to Heaven

Poem Details | by Leon Enriquez |
Categories: change,


Watch the moon rise
Over the trees;
That mystic pearl


Here by this bench
Sad notes incline;
A lonely face


A fat cat sits
By concrete wall;
Stares blankly


Moonlight tonight
Feel mystic glow;
Romantic feel


Lunatic wiles
Evening interlude;
Awakening charms


Evening news flash
Terrible tragedy;
Tianjin explosion


Tons of chemicals
Sodium cyanide;
Death proliferates


Newspaper sells
Tales of destruction;
Death toll rises


Here we go
Crisscross each to each;
Global village song


Poetry slam
Word offerings;
Rude spectacle


Touch of empty
Breeze through fingers;
A void speaks
