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)

Twisted Goose Goes Cuckoo for Haiku

For P.D's "Going Haiku Crazy" Contest

 
How Many?

going to StIves
met folks on that smelly bus
more than I could count

Just Sleep Walking?

Wee Willy Winky
caught outside a boy’s window
in a night garment

Got Wool?

naked in the lane
three bags-full of wool sheared off
baa baa black sheep fleeced

She Didn’t Know What to Do!

Kids’ cries from inside -
outside an old woman’s shoe
child welfare people

Clean Your Plate!

Licking their plates clean
Jack Sprat and wife do their part.
kids starve in China

The Treacherous Hill

pail of spilled water
Jill’s body sprawled over Jack’s
one big bloody mess

What a Ding Dong

good deed for the day
boy scout Tommy Stout by well
scratches on his arm

Not Even a Bone

old Mother Hubbard
Social Security cut
dog needs a new home

Yellow Georgie

victims of Porgie 
confront him in the playground
his true color shows

The Original Blonde

Bo peep loses sheep
birth of a new tradition
blonde jokes being told

The Schemer

some spilled curds and whey
spider near a fallen chair
supping happily

Making the Best

Humpty takes a spill
the whole army can’t fix him
omelets for lunch

Baby Catches On

the church and steeple
and now you show me people?
those are just fingers!

They Say He Couldn’t Keep Her!

gossip in the town
pumpkin shell big as a house 
where is Peter’s wife?

Bye, Hushed Baby

the sound of wind’s rush
baby’s cries abruptly hushed
broken branch on ground

*I'm choosing this series of haiku for several reasons.
First, it's the only post I made named "Twisted" so it
is an obvious choiceSecond, I do have other poems
I consider a bit twisted, but, I simply cannot
remember the titles of some of these really old poems
to look for them Finally, this series was inspired by 
a long ago contest of PD's in which I got the idea
to take nursery rhymes and twist them,  and so 
I'm reviving this series which can no longer be
viewed by anybody here unless it's in a contest!

INNER AND OUTER

INNER AND OUTER

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?

THE PROPOSAL




  
On his knee proposed,

The mother in her was moved,

Future is assured!

Last Rites

a bad man
he could never be..
circumstance

blessed virgin 

wrong place
at the wrong time..
justice prevailes

sweet mother of Christ                                                                                 

I stare 
between the bars
snowey peaks
reveling in beauty
I seek inner calm

help him find what he needs

tight straps
brace against my chin
quickly a jolt  
a young reporter cries,
his angst bringing tears

let not him weep in vain

eyes blink
and a life is gone
such is man

amen, amen and again

I looked 
through the bars
snow still falls

Southwest Landscapes

Five in the morning
Orange and red glow in the east
A new day is born

A single rain drop
Looks to be the final straw
Now the flood begins

Albuquerque view
Volcanoes on the mesa
Since the age of time

Once green and growing
Now brown and brittle and free
A Tumbleweed's life

With long floppy ears
And kangaroo backleg kicks
It roams the mesa

Bone dry arroyo
But when the rains fall heavy
A river runs wild

Blackened pine tree trunks
Struggling to regain life
Only time will tell

Blistering sunlight
Sheltered cove of solid rock
A sliver of shade

Multicolored hues
Cliffs of reds, browns, blacks, and whites
Southwestern landscape

Red rock formations
As far as the eye can see
And way back in time

Rocks piled upon rocks
Balanced precariously
Thousands of years now

Upright arms of green
Prickly needle point barbs
anchored in the sand

A typical day
Arid heat of one-o-eight
No humidity

All along the ridge
Patiently waiting for years
Arms lifted towards God

Two thousand years back
These cliffs were inhabited
Why did they all leave

Striated hillsides
In the land of enchantment
Navajo glory

Six-sided hogans
Grandfather's ancient design
Still in use today

Cemetery stones
No tree to provide them shade
What a sad, sad sight

Knarly old pine tree roots
Wrapped around an ancient stone
Holding on for life 

Fluffy white mountains
Filling up an azure sky
Will it rain today?

Dancing dust devils
Whirling twirling to the sound
Of the wind's music

Shimmering mirage
The desert laughs at the lost
Nature's cruelty
A dry washboard road
Miles out through the desert
A crystal blue lake

Manmade lake at damn
Stopping mother nature's flow
Do we have the right?

Upturned leaves on tree
Frantically waving in wind
Soon the rains will come

He rattled his tail
Demanding respect from all
We complied as one

Sun rises, sun sets
Twenty four hours are over
Accomplish anything?

Not a sound was heard
Footprints only in our wake
The desert winds sleep

Not a sound is heard
Footprints only in our wake
The desert winds sleep

The crunch of gravel
Undeveloped housing roads
Early morning walks

The smell of wood smoke
Memories of the Southwest
Couldn't help but smile

Warming in the sun
Like a lizard on a rock
What a view I had

Morning wakeup call
Bacon wafting through the house
Even I got up

Pollution puddle
Reflecting rainbow colors
Do we call that art?

New Mexico winds
Neither unseen nor unheard
Constantly blowing

A PUPPY DOG PLAYS





                                     a puppy dog plays
                              on a green grassy pond's shore
                                    mother dog's near by 


                                      puppy sees flying
                                butterfly from plant to plant 
                                     chases to catch it 

                                     many times it failed
                               mother dog was watching this
                                   asks to come back vaw

I See the Earth Move

watching a sunset
on the beach at the ocean
touching the skyline

one quarter, one half
bright, blazing red-orange clouds
our star slowly sinks

I am observing
mighty Mother Earth spinning
my mind blows gently...

Biblical type of Mother Mary

Judith chopped off the head of General Holofernes, saving Israel
     She is a biblical type of Mother Mary
     Who crushes the head of the serpent, saving the Church.

An ode to Mother Earth!!!

Life on earth began with a mass of dust,
Embedding itself in the earth’s most fragile crust;
Life of ever-growing trees all began with a leaf or a little grass,
Followed by the appearance of our age old brass;
Then the earth gave way to the slimiest things called ‘animals’,                      
And from there came the most wonderful species called mammals…
One, two and three, it began,
Now it seems like more than hundred years of life span;
Oh! My graceful mother earth!
When everything began you were brown,
When it seemed to last a little longer, you turned yellow,
Years went by and you chose to be green,
With a little blue all over seen;
Every soul was behind your beauty,
All humans chose the path of creativity;
From Shakespeare to Wordsworth to Carroll to Lee,
Everyone wrote to you, what they could see;
Now you are, what I can count,
With your streets and traffics and roads and lanes,
With cars and autos and trucks and cranes;
With dust and leaves and stones and wood,
All that I can write and surely I could;
I know I am just a part of your crust,
But it seems like everything is going back to the dust;
From blue to green to yellow and brown,
When I think, it just makes me frown;
But probably you are just getting old,
Realizing the truth, oh it makes me feel cold;
So just tell me you’ll remain what you are at least now,
Only to let me live and to show the world how to love;
I am sure to tell,if they really knew, what love was,
You wouldn’t have been what you are alas!!

Life 2

LIFE 
Life is a gift
But we have never cared
Destruction of the rain forest
And no animal is spared
Arise great Pro-man
Now raise up your sword
Do not let materialism deceive you
So stick to your word
The petroleum wells will dry up some day
And they will be no money for you to pay with in that way
The gold mines will diminish one day
And there will be no fields for our children to play
Arise Pro-human
Defend mother earth
Do not think of wealth
Or all that you can get
Life is beautiful
So let us be dutiful
As a Good Samaritan
And help your fellow African
Chinese or European
In need
To create a paradise devoid of greed
That is what I call Utopia
Not until we die
When it is all over
We can not let the children suffer
I have seen pain in my old days
The weak rise 
And the mighty fall
Armies rise to fight at the clarion call
Only the truth remains
Like a tree that stands tall
In the next millennia where shall we be?
Vanity after vanity
The rest is history
Life is a gift
And love is a blessing
Let us unite this world
And teach a good lesson

TIMELY FRAGMENTS



Old Jambu tree
Still bearing fruits;
Generous delights

~~~~~~~~~


NDP crowd
Massive tapestry;
Community celebration

~~~~~~~~~


Each passing year
Affirms our country;
Diversity in oneness

~~~~~~~~~


We celebrate
Our little red dot;
Gratitude remembers

~~~~~~~~~


So much to see
So little time;
Familiar complaint

~~~~~~~~~


Fireworks display
After The Pledge;
Poignant philosophy

~~~~~~~~~


Politics means action
Mere words concede;
Happy results count

~~~~~~~~~


Propaganda campaign
True to life stories gel;
Go beyond good intentions

~~~~~~~~~


Today is
Another day;
Celebrate well

~~~~~~~~~


Doing well
Sparkles fine zest;
Learning outcomes tell

~~~~~~~~~


Live telecast
Nation on parade;
Our thanksgiving prayer

~~~~~~~~~


Rainbow colours here
Yellow, brown and black;
Many shades and tints abide

~~~~~~~~~


Here lies
Our hopes and dreams;
KPIs fashion

~~~~~~~~~


New happenings
Here and there;
Changing vistas

~~~~~~~~~


Demand feeds supply
Expensive real estate;
Living costs escalate

Rumour mongers
Offers of high returns;
Just before a crash

~~~~~~~~~


Irony joins cynicism
Reality check puzzling;
Market trends deceive

~~~~~~~~~


Moody mindset
Reverse psychology;
Groggy outcomes

~~~~~~~~~


Growing old
Can be worrisome;
Living expenses skyrocket

~~~~~~~~~


This little island home
Where dreams still thrive;
God bless Singapore

~~~~~~~~~


Uniquely different
Quirky tempos preside;
Famous since 1965

~~~~~~~~~


Oh my country
How do I love thee?
Face, maze and grace

~~~~~~~~~


All in due time
I hear your ancient rhymes;
Especially the road signs!

~~~~~~~~~


August 9th each year
I join with my friends;
Celebrate homecoming here

~~~~~~~~~


Wherever I go
A Singlish word spurs
Feelings of home

~~~~~~~~~


Once I was in Las Vegas,
Diner at a Chinese restaurant;
Felt good at Singlish overheard

~~~~~~~~~


Home is where heart
Lives with love: Singapore --
Always in my heart

~~~~~~~~~

What Does The Fox Say

the mother red fox snuggles in warm den, feeds her kits... a-oo-oo-oo-ooo the owl in the tree on a pitch dark moonless night.. who-who-who-who-who the mother red fox says shhh, shhh, shhh, to the owl.... kits just wow, wow, wow the crack of dawn breaks a sunrise of red and blue.. zzzzz, zzzz, silence speaks
I get a kick out of the whole song, "What Does The Fox Say" but I dedicate my poem to "Fraka-kaka-kaka-kaka-kow" Written February 21, 2014 Sponsor: Skat A Contest: What Does The Fox Say I did some research on the Red Fox and they make a sound somewhat like the Tawny Owl and other trisyllabic sounds like they are talking to each other..

Little Colt

Knobby knees unfold
   Awkward & wobbling to n fro-
      The colt tries to stand,

Gently caressed by
   His dam's soft prodding nose-
       He falls down again,

Instinct pushes him
   He must try and try again-
      Moms knicker assures,

In an effort grand
   He does it! Does it right then-
      Staggering he falls....
And

As the hours pass
   The colt burns across the field-
      Mother at his heels!

My Life

My life is so perfect and true 
With you my love,
Noone else treats me the way you do.

My step-father treats me wrong, and blames everything on me,
Which makes me explode or say some things to people that I don't mean,
My mother is awesome, and she is my best friend, the only other one I can trust, except you.

I have never really loved anyone before you, except my friends, but never as much as you, my love

I can't imagine living in a world where you don't exsist,
If I had to I would'nt do it, I would die,
I just can't be without you more than 24 hours, I am glad we are in the same school, that way when I am grounded I can still see you, 
I dream and daydream about you every day and every night, 
I want you to cloud up my mind, so I can think of nothing else.
My life is simple, perfect, and true.

There are some people that I wished I could say sorry to for my behavior towards them, but I don't think they would listen,
It eats my stomach up, and I feel bad for my behavior towards them, but I know I can't go into the past and erase it, guess I just have to live though it,
It just puts more scars in my heart, because no matter what we are all family in God's eyes.

I can not hate, Dislike, or even Strongly dislike anyone, even though they don't like me or may hate me, I think of them as familySo I will say sorry to someone I go to school with, she deserves itI have 3 periods with her, so I will say sorry someday when I get the guts.

My life is so perfect, clear and safe to me

HAIKU SPARKLE


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

THE WAY 2



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

~~~~~~~~~

Natural Reclamation

the forest
surrender to nature
white oaks fall


For the Haiku from the Heart Contest
Submitted by Ann Roske
Form : contemporary haiku
3-6-3 format

We've had a really wet and weird winter and have 4 white oaks that have fallen over on the back of our property It is sad to see them go down, but Mother Earth will reclaim and re-purpose them This is my small tribute to that wonderful and mysterious process - circle of life.
