Seduction In Spring - A Haiku Garland

Cherry Blossoms Bloom Resplendently dressed in Pink Seducing the Spring Glory unfolding They release their sweet fragrance Pirouette and twirl Music from the breeze With limbs so graceful swaying Blushing and bowing Time of renewal A fleeting symbol of life In two weeks farewell Ethereal Muse Celebration of nature Next spring awaits you
Author's Note: I hope that in this set of Haiku, I've managed to convey the traditional importance of the Cherry Blossom Season in Japan. Cherry blossoms are the symbolic flower of the spring, a time of renewal and the fleeting nature of lifeTheir life span is very shortAfter their beauty peaks around two weeks, the blossoms start to fall I liken these flowers to the beautiful Heavenly elusive Muses, the daughters of Zeus. The awesomeness of the natural beauty of Japan is continued in the my poem and arrangement - 'A Rose by any other name ---'

Texas beaches in sand or clay, and have the characteristic of flowering early in the morning 
and fading by noonThe bloom in all seasons but I chose spring to be more commonly

Nature's Nemesis arrived

Hubris' aftermath !

© Demetrios Trifiatis
      01 October 2018


*"Zorbas" is the name given to a cyclone that appeared in
the mediterranean sea and has afflicted, mainly, Greece for a week now
causing considerable damages, including loss of lifeUsually we 
do not see Cyclones in this part of the world but with the climate
change we will see them more often! Man has to learn to respect
mother nature and to avoid Hubris!

For those people too stubborn or too set in their ways to listen to another point of view: HEADNOTES  are NOT titles and they do not add to the syllable countThey are used with haiku or tanka poetry to set the scene  - like a signpostWithout it the reader will be totally lost (unless he/she has a VERY broad base of international knowledge)REAMS have been written about the MEANING of some of Basho's haikuWhy? Because it is ambiguous and, therefore, understanding them and translating them is difficultEg "the crow" and "frog pond" are only two of such haiku people are having difficulty with to come to a consensus as to what the poet intended to convey with these haiku 

Why Say More? The Problem of Titling Tanka
First published in the Tanka Society of America Newsletter 3:1, March 2002, pages 12–15While focused on tanka, the insights I hope this essay offers, apply equally well to haiku.

Tanka in Japan sometimes have headnotes as opposed to titles, but it is NOT a sixth line to the poem! Headnotes explain the “circumstances of the poem”—the context or settingAgain, though, headnotes are not at all like titles, and one need not be a particularly astute reader of tanka to spot the difference; headnotes are typically factual, locational, or anecdotal, whereas titles are often symbolic or intellectualThe headnotes, if used at all, do not fight with the tanka aesthetic, whereas titles typically do.

Table Mountain is renowned for its tablecloth when the strong south-easterly wind blows.

Wolfman Falls in Love

A car door opens
her long shapely leg steps first  
this is love or lust 

The heart beat flutters
he watches each moves she makes
deep within he sighs

Which move shall he make
I am so sorry Wolfman
this tail is taken

Her name is Molly
she does tricks for her master
rolls over and sits

Black Friday

Love your neighbor as you love yourself
What happened to our mind set?
She’s an infant not a cure for aids
She’s pure why forcefully snitch her virginity 
Respect our women you selfish men

South Africa you’ve made a name for yourself “rape capital” 
Let us unite against rape and restore our good name
My beloved South Africans unite!
Unite against women and child abuse
One person raped is one too many

Anene Boysens, your death united the nations
United, they condemned discrimination against women
They said” every girl has a right to be respected and protected against women abuse”
How long should we take this barbaric conduct?  
We owe it to all the victims to fight this disease

Woe to your power assertive rapists
Woe to you anger retaliation rapists
Woe to you sadistic rapists
Woe to you juvenile sex offenders
Woe to you women offenders	

14 February after sun set a word went forth
Rapists have no place in South Africa
February 15, 2013 declared a black Friday
We shall remain black until we defeat rape
Victory is within our reach, fight against rape.

Town dog’s name -- Buster He limps on once broken leg But runs like a pup Story never told How Buster’s leg was broken Silence rule invoked Countless times I’ve asked But no one wants to tell me How this came about No one wants to talk About Buster’s tragedy They hide truth from me Someone will talk soon Of this there is certainty Truth exists somewhere The tomcat is mute Ne’er spoke a word about it I feel he is key Friends they used to be And friends they are till this day Friends don’t rat on friends.

I'll Always Remember - 'Haikuized'

The moment we met.
Haunting meadows in springtime,
Your slim silhouette.

A slumbering fawn
Awakes in new morning dawn.
The ghost of your eyes.

Your singular smile 
Feigning figures and fancies.
 The phantoms that guile.

Fair feathers were fanned -
Ruffled wing of a sparrow.
The touch of your hand.

Inside still a boy
Body burning aflutter
I jittered with joy.

The sound of your laugh.
Ocean waters were splashing,
A midsummer bath.

We strayed on the strand 
Your hair, long, tousled and blown
A moment, alone.

I started to spin
Beneath skies opening wide.
Your breath on my skin.

Being drawn aside 
The mysteries of love unwind
Two tongues are entwined.

Falling from above
Fires we shared in late fall.
The fury of love.

Passions which flowered,
Painted stars the night showered.
The brightness of day

Your name and ‘farewell' -
Two words tolled in winter’s sky.
A shattering knell 

She left while I slept.
A farewell note near the nook
I read while I wept.

 Note: this was an attempt to ‘Haikuize’ my rhyme “I’ll Always Remember” – thus, it’s a learning experiment...
Experts, please forgive..

Martian Conniosseur

MAVEN tastes the air
too thin to hold oceans' broth
wafted on Sol's winds.

Note: this is my entry for NASA's "Going To Mars" campaign I believe it deserves to win, because in 17 syllables it not only summarizes MAVEN's (Mars Atmospheric Volatile EvolutioN) mission, but also alludes to the meaning of its name as an expert or connoisseur (as though it were a master chef, lifting the lid on the desert planet to sample its boiled away oceans) If you agree with me, please visit the link below (just copy and paste it into your browser) to vote your support, before July 29 You may make this offering one of three haiku to be carried to Mars -- THE FIRST POETRY TO ANOTHER WORLD.

To Philadelphia, Revelation 3: 7-13

This is 'His' letter,
to the Philadelphians,
and the angel there:

"The words of the one,
who is both holy and true.
I know all your works.

I hold David's key
and I have opened a door
which no one can shut

Your might may be small,
yet you haven't denied me.
You have kept my word.

I will bend their knees,
those who lie about their faith,
the church of Satan.

The wicked will learn
that it is you who I love
while down at your feet.

Patient endurance
this is my word you have kept
so you will be spared

You won't stand trial
unlike those who dwell on earth
when I come again.

I am coming soon.
Hold fast to the crown you have,
so no one may seize

The one who conquers,
will become like a pillar
within God's temple.

I will write three names
The name of GodMy own name.
New Jerusalem.

He who has an ear
let him hear the Spirit speak
unto the churches.

been without a clue

caused me to rush about to
make up for lost time

blind reality

lost lil girl searching

Wake up People

I'll tell you whats wrong with the world today, Everyone all caught up in texing facebook and all this here say.

People so busy with their lives and making money, Did you dumb asses forget why GOD put u here it isnt even funny.

Whether you believe in GOD or not were here for one thing, its about showing love not whose got the biggest bling

GOD gave me one gift its called I keep it real, I'll call you out on your stuff and tell you how I feel.

Pick a topic any topic and I'll spit my shit, the only question is can you handle it.

If I had my way theirs a few things I would do, Get rid of the death penalty, change the drug laws, put child molesters on an island alone just to name a few.

 People can change this I know, We all got love its in our SOUL.

Faiths to name a few!
Most use faiths to find a way, 
Through life's decisions

Faith is beautiful
Creates a life of blessing, 
To help fulfill lives

No one should have faith,
If they are following blind
Evaluate first

Have reasons for it
Not because others tell you
You should be able

Believe in yourself
For you'll have the most doubt there
If you can do this

Faith will come easy
So please believe in yourself 
To believe in Faith

Wrapped up in awesome delight

Dearest affection

Truly this was God.

Clay in the pool of Siloam.
Now he see's the light.

Thirst in the desert.
Moses taps water from rock.
They now drink refreshed.

Peter, James and John
Are taken up a mountain.
Jesus does transform.

We bless our candles.
Light has come into the world,

Have love for your enemies
As the perfect Christ.

Us from the power of sin,
Death and selfishness.

Walking by the walls.
On the seventh day it fell
With trumpets and shouts.
