CRIES FOR PEACE



Cries for peace heard loud 
War mongers, rifles lifted 
Silence established!

WISDOM AND IGNORANCE



                                    ignorance's bad smell 
                                that can be smelt in action
                                   pollutes through chaos

                                    wisdom's silent light  
                                 treasure of all happiness
                                     offer always peace

The Surest Path to Peace

The path to your peace,
Is not to lay down your arms,
But hold them outstretched.

Abandon your wars,
Your sacred prejudices,
To live born again.

In another's arms,
Surrender yourself to love,
And peace will find you.

Fight Off All Our Foes

Everybody knows
That to God want to propose
Hel fight off our foes.

Also want to say
God be in our lives today
Wash our sins away.

Sisters and brothers
God help us to help others
Make us be lovers.

Leave no one behind
May be woman or mankind
Which God has designed.

Have found peace at last
Sorrows remain in the past
Fly flags high on mast.

From now until then
We will not worry again
Now free from all sin.

James Thomas Horn
Retired Soldier and Poet

Bio in Short

It's been a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

First Hollywood kiss
Behind a pink crepe myrtle.
Thanks, Patsy Werner.

High school was okay.
Didn't help me to focus;
So, my mind wandered.

Surfed Bonzai Pipeline,
Big waves break into lava.
What made me do it?

Vietnam jungles.
I wondered why I was there.
America lost.

Smoking potStereo.
Good fun in the seventies.
Psychedelics too.

And three wives later,
I finally found true love.
We're still together.

My destitute heart,
Saved by the sweetest angel.
I love you, Sandy.

Sooners are my team.
Most winning football program
In the Modern Era.

I am retired now.
But I have plenty to do.
Golf, primarily.

I've been writing more.
Perhaps I will write a book.
I have many tales.

I'd chase young girls; but,
Girls with a "grampa" fetish
Are so hard to find.

If I am lucky,
I will just drop dead one day.
With my peace of mind.

Yes, made a good run
To the back side of sixty,
The short side of time.

Adirondacks Ode

Climb high these mountains
And meet cliffs of history
Snug against the moon

Cold lover's warm kiss
Caress each syllable of song
Love makes joy exist
 
Adirondacks mist
The milk of mothering trees 
Melted on morning's joy

Tongue lark the dark lakes
Water births of memory
Ego ice thin here 

The nation's blood lens
The red moon night, so pride stakes
Claim to fluid truth
  
The wind prowls the skin
Stirring leaves of memories
A breast dried of peace  

Algonquian trail
Footsteps eat the span of trees
Man is small in grief

The muskets torment
Fusion of mission and right
The north shrikes lament

And beg migrants gone
But wax wing they shun the sun
Bunting snow for life.

Old Mohawk glory
Gone when forest bare shivers
In castles of ice

Steel teeth scrape the rocks
And eat iron from the ore
Of greed, killing trees

Logging the green tongue
Of the sun's wealth of heat
For this new kingdom

Of civilized men
Performing barbaric feats
Distant from the den.

Dusk the Gilded Age
Of rage.like natives, all past
Diseased to the eye

A new dawn breaks song
And howls of joy claim again
The blessings of rain

Sceptered in the throat
Cities' diamonds of dew
Love of warblers note.

Love is eagle's joy
Climbing high against the breast
Peaking in delight.

Cold, Flexible Steel

A serial of haikus, all addressing the same topic with 
a hint of humor; but advice that could save your life
or that of a loved one New to PoetrySoup, so I hope 
I'm not "out of order" with this submission or topic


Cold, flexible steel
Probing my dignity...
Colonoscopy.

This “simple” exam
“…could prevent cancer.” they say.
Colonoscopy.

We all have to die,
But not from colon cancer.
Colonoscopy.

There's a downside tho’.
“Yuk! That, nasty brown liquid.”
Colonoscopy.

“But boy, does it work...
Work and work and work some more
Colonoscopy.

Baring your buttocks...
In a fetal position;
Colonoscopy

“No polyps", they say.
There are no malignancies.
Colonoscopy.

Your colon’s okay.
It’s five years until your next...
Colonoscopy.

Want some peace of mind?
Insurance may pay for it.
Colonoscopy

One “simple” exam
Can provide that peace of mind.
Colonoscopy.

You might save your life.
Over 45?  Do it!
Colonoscopy.

Cold, flexible steel.
On the other hand, what if…
Something else kills you?

Winter's Karma

How is your Karma
It may be winter outside
inside is your choice

Karma is basic
you give up your selfishness
and peace will follow

All Creatures Big and Small

In his wisdom God

Deep love and purpose


BEAUTIFUL BIRD

Beautiful bird perched
on tree limb under moon's glow
elegantly dressed

GRAZING HORSES

Clouds rest on tree tops
lumpy feather beds billow
horses graze in snow

SILENT BIRD

Proud bird perched so high
silently viewing the world
We await his song

I BEHOLD A RAINBOW

Sun and humming birds

Tiger baths his wounds
cold water soothes like medicine
he will fight again

The peace sign

Hail all the peace sign:
Although at large a janus,
Monolith at spring.

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.

...(Fall, Winter, Spring, Summer)

Pass this Peace to Man

colorful hummingbirds
flutter and nibble berries…
     envious, I watch

the gift of freedom
Ma Nature gives her creatures…
     we fight for our rights

animal kingdom
finds harmony in nature…
     pass this peace to man
     



For Sidney Lee Ann’s “Haiku from the Heart” 
Traditional Haiku, 5-7-5
By Carolyn Devonshire
This haiku is inspired by the free spirit of animals and how I wish we could enjoy the harmony nature has bestowed upon them


Poem Details | by Yanny Widjanarko |
Categories: introspection,

Blurry Mirror

Steam clouds on mirror
Hide the reflection in blurred
Chose to be unknown

Hidden soul not speak
It says through the words of eyes
I'm living in you

Unnamed solely side
Lived from the remained shadow
Under self conscious

Friend or predator
Both are potentially hurts
Pick the wise answer

Make peace with yourself 
Take two sides in good or bad
Those, the shapes of you

Stereotype Reinforced

Joke I will bomb you,
Offend my faith, god and I
I threaten you with death?

Am I what joke says?
Offend my faith, god and I
I threaten you with death?

I am not this way,
Offend my faith, god and I,
I threaten you with death?

I want peace and love
Offend my faith, god and I,
I threaten you with death?

I want free speech rights,
Offend my faith, god and I,
I threaten you with death?

Tolerance I preach
Offend my faith, god and I,
I threaten you with death?

Joke I will bomb you,
Offend my faith, god and I,
Prepare for the bomb.

Serious Poem

Only one of the haiku poems below is seriousThe others are frivolousCan you spot the serious poem?

zero, one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight, nine,
ten, eleven, twelve

Do four out of five
dentists really prefer
sugarless Trident?

twelve, eleven, ten,
nine, eight, seven, six, five, four,
three, two, one, zero

Is a poem any
more than a validation
of our perceptions?

I gave the Peace sign
at a football game and was
handed two hot dogs!

The six questions that
reporters ask are "What?," "Why?,"
"Where?," "How?," "When?," and "Who?"

DEAD DOG

DEAD DOG

For decades this dung fouls the air
Sabotaging our sniffs of the dew scents

The peace we know had risen against us
Standing on our toes like a prodigal Son

Calling from Afghanistan to Pakistan
Dirges for our generation

It has been long, it has been painful
And endlessly, there was one thing

Everywhere of our nooks
His calls sounds bells of hell

His quests smells like blood
Splashing it on every white tomb

Not knowing he exalts martyrs bones
They died in blood of ice

Cold and innocent
Ah, Ah, Ah! those bullets

Thanks he took the last roullette
The end of Osama

A birth of a Lion King, the reign of Obama
Dear world, Offer me a gourd of palm wine

To plead the fishes to mourn him to eternity 
Till father grant him a final hearing

As I wait for his reincarnated soul.

SPRING



Brisk as a breeze
Lunar new year installs;
Festive cheer punctuates

~~~~~~~~~


Smiling faces exchange
Auspicious greetings;
Mandarin oranges

~~~~~~~~~


Red packet gifts
Good fortune and peace;
Happy thoughts

~~~~~~~~~


Chinatown tryst
Colorful promenades;
Spirit of joy

~~~~~~~~~


Dazzling fireworks
Festival spirits sculpt;
Auspicious message

~~~~~~~~~


Wonderful blessings
Extraordinary feasts;
Family celebration

~~~~~~~~~


Lunar year deposits
Goat ushers more;
Contentment mingles

~~~~~~~~~


Ancient calligraphy
Auspicious messages;
Gold words on red paper

~~~~~~~~~


Listen now
Laughter and cheer;
Celebrate new joys

~~~~~~~~~


Another year older
Wiser perhaps;
Sync peace of mind

~~~~~~~~~


Time to reflect
On peace and joy;
Discover good fortune

~~~~~~~~~


Here's to joy
Let peace attend;
Abundance stays

~~~~~~~~~


Yu Sheng feast
Shouts of joy;
Fortune galore

New Year 2013 may welcome Peace

New Year 2013 may welcome Peace

May the New Year welcome the peace and
Feed good thoughts in our minds
May it sow noble seeds in our land
To change this hell at least as Earth

Bloody violence may go out of this land and
Nasty hunger may go for it’s death
Stupid poverty may reach it’s corner
Lovely world may incarnate from this hell

May my dreams come to true on this dawn
May His mercy shower on our lives
May my pen write prosperity in epics
I want these My Lord bless me to attain

Lazy dogs may go to their pits
Greedy worms may go to their end
Corruptive gems may go to deep
Holy souls may bless to us

AUGUST HAIKUS


Rainy weather
Unpredictable;
Drenching everything

~~~~~~~~~


Mother and child
Dance with drizzle;
Laughter and giggles

~~~~~~~~~


Happy lives here
In my house;
A welcome guest

~~~~~~~~~


Chinese ghost festival
Lunar seventh month;
Wandering spirits tour

~~~~~~~~~


Prayers and offerings
For dead ancestors;
Win-win situation

~~~~~~~~~


Church calendar
So much happening;
May lasting peace abide

~~~~~~~~~


Gaza strip conflict
Nobody wins;
Both sides suffering

~~~~~~~~~


Wars do not end
Peace comes to the dead;
All else is Hell

~~~~~~~~~


Love is the cause
Of life -- and life
Embraces all

~~~~~~~~~


Words intervene
Hijacks silence;
Elegance signs

~~~~~~~~~


Exuberance oozes
Fond passion moves;
Artistic postures

~~~~~~~~~


August in tears
Sun on vacation;
Wet masquerades

~~~~~~~~~


Emotional departure
Gone forever;
Death is relentless

~~~~~~~~~


Bedtime story
Repeat broadcast;
Night after night

~~~~~~~~~


50 shades of grey
Nothing erotic;
Hair strands on bald patch

~~~~~~~~~


Speak softly
Death's at the door;
Don't disrupt business

~~~~~~~~~


Change 
Strange;
Deranged

~~~~~~~~~


Moon glow magic
Through dreary air;
Eerie anti-climax

~~~~~~~~~


By that stone bench
Distant Chinese pavilion;
Ghostly presence

~~~~~~~~~


Giant moths circle
Waiting to die;
Messy debris 

~~~~~~~~~


Dreamy moonlight
Mid-autumn surprise;
Moon cakes and desserts

~~~~~~~~~

WIND BLOWN HAIKUS

Humid evening
Hot air and disease;
Flu bug on parade!


Old age looks forlorn
My neighbour sits alone;
Keeps own company


Day turns to night time
Cyber sensations;
Wind blown haikus


My mother died alone
Late June last year;
Still, I see her face


Two poodle-terriers
Snoopy and Bear;
Canine matrimony


My dead father
In my mirror glimpse;
Startling son-rise!


Traffic jam scenario
Car number 5000;
Sporty impatience!


Lotus posture here
Waiting on no-thing;
Something happens


Morning Glory flowers
Climbers on the fence;
Noisy children play


Fifty floors above
Skyscraper joggers;
Evening escalates


Stranger smiles
Crowded minimart queue;
Awkward silence cut


Waiting lift crowd
Together yet alone;
Stress and strain percolate


Remember
To remember;
Happy ever after


Words cannot
Even tell enough;
Non-fat skimmed milk


Work hard
Diet plan;
Manage self-image!


Our great old man
Frail as bamboo charcoal;
May peace abide


Bright legacy
Warm harmony;
Sepia continuity


Ink my name
On rice paper;
Rain dissolves all


Not much

START AGAIN



Brief message
Wind blows this way;
Listen well

~~~~~~~~~


Year ends here
Airline tragedy;
All aboard dead

~~~~~~~~~


So much pain
Year-end debris;
Heartaches mourning

~~~~~~~~~


Once again
Violent bad weather;
Frightening nature

~~~~~~~~~


Flotsam debris
Choppy sea waves;
Swirl dead bodies

~~~~~~~~~


Wet monsoon violence
So many lives lost;
Tragic endings

~~~~~~~~~


Words cannot contain
Sadness and closure;
Nightmares taunt

~~~~~~~~~


Traumatic episodes
So much of pain;
Issues unresolved

~~~~~~~~~


To venture forth
Try unknown fate;
Life bears risky moves

~~~~~~~~~


Dance to the light
Free from old chains;
Let soul rejoice

~~~~~~~~~


Loss brings pain
Terrible and true;
So much suffering

~~~~~~~~~


Here and now we pray
For peace to find;
Lead us back home

~~~~~~~~~


Tragedy starts
Humanity mourns;
Healing will come

~~~~~~~~~

Water

I see the water
And it helps me to escape
In peace and love

HAIKU JOURNEYS



Hot humid heatwave
Discomfort percolates long;
Sudden drenching rain

~~~~~~~~~


Sexy curvy strides
Vibrant elegance catwalks;
Hungry eyes focus

~~~~~~~~~


Two stray cats fighting
Furious body language here;
Small tigers draw blood

~~~~~~~~~


Ancient atmosphere
Old tea house in the city;
Strange calligraphy

~~~~~~~~~


Bus-stop commotion
Two drunken men in a brawl;
Tipsy foreign tongues

~~~~~~~~~


Temple bells sounding
Distant chanting rituals heard;
Prayer for our times

~~~~~~~~~


Late night wordplay moves
Missing lines stray on the verge;
Nothing much to say

~~~~~~~~~


Abrupt morning rain
Disrupts our simple routine;
Extra sleepy dreams

~~~~~~~~~


Here journeys begin
Trace cryptic constellations;
Dream upon a dream

~~~~~~~~~


Joy and peace appeal
Insidious intent conspires;
Clash of conflicts hurl

~~~~~~~~~


Little red-dot nation
Multi-lingual harmony;
Hypertensive calm

~~~~~~~~~


Beware of conflicts
Sensitive notions preside;
Keep the status quo

~~~~~~~~~


The Singapore wave
Echoes of the Kallang roar;
SEA Games here in June

~~~~~~~~~


Pretty play on stilts
Comely countenance lights May;
Orchard Road hazard

~~~~~~~~~


Listen to dawn light 
Hurl dazzling colours that play;
Blurry eyes awake

~~~~~~~~~


Moment of madness
Reason clowning with passion;
Edgy concoctions

~~~~~~~~~


Being one with you
So many years of pure joy;
Love writes fond passage

~~~~~~~~~


May masquerades well
Contradicts odd intentions;
Old memories curl

~~~~~~~~~
