A Delicate Balance

Breathless and beguiled
 Nature blankets my lone dreams
   Swallowing me whole

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."

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 ---'

Demonic Noise

tsunami commands 
mother earth to tremble --

blue skies of water 
pour out devastation --
crashing tears thunder

thunderous booms of
explosions in aftermath --   
resilience conquers

(Dedication: For Regina Riddle)

Tree caterpillar crawling
Strong windy debris;
Blown over the bough


Violet blossoms
Vine decorations dancing;
Sun and breeze move


Joy wears a face:
Your smiles highlight;
Dazzle of morning


Hasty scribblings
Poetry in motion;
Grassy blooms unnoticed


Rose garden memories
Touch of rapture;
Thorny issues exfoliate


Sweet yellow guava
Pleasant tasty treat;
Oxford Road townhouse


This old Jasmine tree
Fondly remembers;
Our rowdy flower picking


Joy wears a face
Nature reveals seasons;
Change comes to all


Look to strange change
To re-jig feelings;
Afternoon rain respite


Be of good cheer
Bear with bad weather;
Dance with danger


Mid-autumn frolic
Peace in kind harvest;
Moon cakes and moonlight


Ghosts of lovers past
Touch of fond rapture;
Breezy plumeria garden


Voice in the wind
Fragrant with rain;
Black clouds threaten


Evening stroll
Plumeria flowers preside


So much to discern
Harmony trees here;
Gardens By The Bay


Evening serenade
Cicadas and frogs;
Sounds at nightfall


Orchard Boulevard stroll
Sense surrounds;
Fragrant touch sifting


Two yellow butterflies
Fluttering between shrubs;
Sky Bridge tower above


Haiku surprise
Or senryu moment;
Experience reveals


Observe dear heart
What nature shows;
See things clearly


Frangipani tree
Crimson and red flowers;
Walkway perfumery

The Seasons - Rhyming Haiku

icy kiss of death
frozen on sweet autumn’s breast
winter’s frosty breath   

frozen crystal spears
melting in a thousand tears
joyful spring is here

what were buds on trees
live there dreams in lush green leaves
kissed by summer breeze

life begins to wane
summer bursting into flames
autumn’s sweet refrain

Mooku: Haikus on the Moon: with Cliff Notes

1Lunar Perspective #1

month long day and night
also sees earth wax and wane
no season penchant

2Lunar Perspective #2

moon's sun mimics earth's
earth pirouettes on star stage
sun’s smile Cheshire Cat

3Lunar Perspective #3

moon turns once per month
lunar tides dictate strangeness
heat loss froze moon’s face

4Lunar Perspective #4

one quarter earth’s size
creation’s spring, born of fire,
runt of the litter

5Lunar Perspective #5

moon is problem child
with no tilt seasons languish
haiku redefined?

6Lunar Perspective #6

evolution’s fall -
dangerous precession tamed
by earth’s sibling’s mass

7Lunar Perspective #7

eggs have their season
star dust life defying odds -
sister of mercy

8Lunar Perspective #8

seasons change in sky
rain a distant memory
blue moon poet's blues

9Lunar Perspectives #9

boy/girl in earthlight
cratered love finds its season
waxing blue planet

Brian Johnston

Poet's Notes:
As I learn more about writing haiku and hear practitioners speak of snapshots of experience/nature and concrete images the more restricted I feelThis poem looks at haiku from an unusual perspectiveAlmost no one has any experience with really seeing things on the moon, but with science we can imagine concrete images and snapshots that are at least as real as any we see on earthThe paradox of this for future haiku writers is amazing I thinkOne is tempted to ask if any truly concrete images actually existIs the mind's eye as good as our own? Is what we see with our eyes any more real than what we imagine at times?

Is language even possible that is not emotional and could objectivity be a farce? An eskimo for example has 40 different words for "snow" it is saidHow could an eskimo's haiku that used this word ever be translated accurately without resorting to poetic devices such as simile, metaphor, rhyme and anthropomorphism?

Stay tuned for other developments or share your insights with the rest of us.

Cliff notes (for the curious):
I have written a poetic version of what it would be like to live on the moon, what you would see thereOf course no one lives there now so these poems need to use mentally reconstructed images of what life would be like if you did live thereSo the point of this poem is to ridicule the idea that haiku have to be concrete images or photographs of anythingTraditional haiku people are going to love this I'm sure! 

Stanza 1 basically tells you that if you were living on the moon, then one day there would be the equivalent of 30 earth days..you would have 15 earth days of light and 15 earth days of darknessAnd if you could see the earth where you are on the lunar surface you would see it going through phases just like how we see the moon go through phases here on earthHowever, unlike the earth the moon has no seasons at allThis is also a jab at traditional haiku rules that require a nature reference in every haiku and consider seasons like we have here on earth to be a part of natureWell seasons may be part of nature on earth but on the moon they are not part of nature at allCan you believe I say all of this in just 17 syllables? 

Stanza 2 contrasts the behavior of the sun as seen from the moon with how the earth behaves which is much differentBasically it takes 15 days from the time that the sun rises on the moon until the time that it setsBut the earth simply stands still in the same place in the sky all the time, i.e., for the whole number of earth days that it takes the sun to rise, set and rise againThe earth never rises and sets for a person that lives in one place on the moonBut in fact as the earth goes through its moon like phases, we do see the earth revolving once every 24 hours while occupying the same skyThe real weirdness though is that since the moon has no atmosphere, there is no extended sunrise or sunsetInstead the day begins and ends instantly like the Cheshire cat's smileSo this explains the 2nd haiku! Ha!

A Symbol Of Spring's Resurrection

cold February's rain saturates the good earth... star magnolia blooms
A symbol of spring's resurrection are those early blossomsThe Daffodils spring up under the bright yellow Forsythia and beautiful pink tulip shaped flowers cover the Japanese Magnolia..Resurrection stated in the most subtle wayThey say to me there is hope that the sun will soon warm the earth's soil signaling to all of nature to come alive.
red buds glow decorating the roadside... heavy fog cloaks all
Spring's presence can be unobtrusive slipping in like a lamb One day it is winter then a heady essence wafts on a zephyr that aroma of pale lavender Wisteria announcing spring has sprung. Sponsor: Debbie Guzzi Contest: Spring Haibun red buds glow(verb)

                       VOICES OF SPRING

                        by nature driven
           some hidden wild bird finds voice
                         at crack of dawn

            day by day watching
                     watching tiny buds unfold
                                     to full blown image – spring

                          nature paints spring
                    she work in color and form
                         overlapping the frame

Haiku: Physics: Colored Perceptions

blue planet water
blue sky just scattered sunbeams
dusk's red, unbent light

Brian Johnston
July 28,2014

Poet's Notes: 
Isn't it great? Three wonders of nature explained in 17 wordsIt is so much fun 
sharing my love of Physics with othersLay people in general have no idea the 
treasure they are missingOf course Religious Literalists are the most deprived
They literally live in the stone age (and the rock is all between their ears!)

Physics is not a replacement for God in my mind, but rather, like a beautiful 
sunset, another way of viewing Him, of experiencing His love for usPhysics is 
just a different perspective of the same mountain as it were

God is mysterious (but he is also accessible) He is a humanist (loving us as 
He loves His own son) , a mathematician (the underpinnings of Physics) , a 
musician (think of the joy we experience in all harmonies, even discordant 
ones) , an artist (the waiting beauty of galaxies far exceeding the imagination 
of man) , a humorist (who besides me doesn't think that it is extremely funny 
that the Jews, as His chosen people, behaved no differently really than non-
Jews - God granting special favours clearly does not make us better people
'Just do this for me God and I will never stray! ' Really just hilarious!) , and on 
and on

Really, as usual, Einstein had a very interesting perspective that I think we 
should all embrace, 'Reality is an illusion! ' And so it is folks! The only posture 
appropriate in the presence of God is one of extreme humility (and gratitude) 
Let me quote one of my own echo poems here, Echo: Alone Too..

Alone….with the lost! Are prayers ever answered? 
Alone….my heart overwhelmedCould that be a prayer? 
I look at the rainbow as summer squall passes 
And find that I'm grateful that I am a player

Aren't all of life's problems, in the grand scheme of things (if we are honest) 
really little more than a 'summer squall? '

Seed Of Life

The state of nature I am in -
inspires my passion towards the seed of life.

Looking at the tree's within the bright warm sunlight
fulfills the lamp of my soul with joyfulness!.

The seed of life starts to compose a new form of a wealthy life,
so wealthy that its empty!.

Wealth is inside the emptiness,
emptiness is richness,
one is free from artificial misery's!.
