Haiku 16: Blood Pain

           lightning punching down,
                     fast, blinding, loud – blood pain
                                a prayer of tears 

to all who have suffered violence

The wise ones do indeed pray, for without prayer their wisdom would fall way to foolishness.

Haikus to Iran

In Iran they march
"Where" they ask "is my vote gone?"
Answered by truncheon

God, Allah, they call
In His name, holy, oppress
Gods weakest children

Other news shall show
Western television screens
But we wont forget

Hundreds dead now
We only know one name, one face
A prayer for them say

Bouquet in mansion
Furnish by the most priceless
Can't outweigh her love

Agrarian harvest
And all the nature's beauty  
Can't surpass her heart

She's her children's spouse
A companion to her hobby
...Her caring tranquil

Right way sure her way
Her prayer is excellence
...Can't banish such soul.

Curl of smoky streaks
Joss stick messages;
Heaven bound


Temple visit
Feast day moments;
Talk to the dead


Bright Hill Temple
Where rites bring peace;
Family gathering


Temple verandah,
Spacious prayer courtyard;
Surreal this heaven


Closed eyes salute
An inner realm calls;
Spiritual insight


Here we gather
Offer our earthly harvests;
Poignant celebration


Briefly we come
Ply food offerings;
Gratitude tells


Columbarium niche
Earthly ashes laid;
Fond remembrance


All Souls Day
By parents' niche tomb;
Familiar voices speak


Echoes in hallway
Death talks in silence;
Life feels message


Poise in strange voice
Talking in my head;
Ecstatic insight


Brief is our time here
In-between eternities;
Grief comes too late


Songbirds sing
A rustic hymn;
Salute the dead


Flowers sparkle bright
Crimson, violet, orange hues;
Bourgainvillea vines


Hurl of midday sun
Casting odd silhouettes;
Deserted columbarium

Prayer for mercy

when system fails, injustice produced harassment and disappointments.
innocence cursed the cruelty and prayer to God for justice comments.
God hears and develops such nature to punish a guilty person,
God rewards a disease to deliver justice to remove unwanted dents.
Someone's suffering changes human mind and prayer for mercy in seconds.

A nice veneer
Looking solid and good;
Termites devour within

Life hazards
Venture bleeding;
More vitamin M needed

Business failure
Shocking casualties;
Bankrupted parties

Spice can smell nice
But nice can tell lies;
Sometimes a vice

Impressive bungalow
Sporty car;
Heavy in debt woes

Sad but true
Vanity masquerades;
Not the real thing

Newspaper headlines
Scandal and heartbreak;
I feel sad for you

Regrets fester
Like gangrene;
Amputate the trash

Eye witness here
I watch you tumble;
Helpless to help

Impressive life
Career highlights unrivaled;
Why this bankruptcy?

Sad story
Paper described;
Can prayer alleviate?

Life and death;
Struggle for meaning

Worldly mindset
Get rich quick;
Scheming for more

Between ambition
And acquisition;
Avarice styles

To succeed well
Take failures well;
Survive persecution

Liquor and wine
Wine and dine;
Decadence flaunts

Simple vanity
Defines ambition;
Practical notions heap

And in the end
Just round the bend;
Broken trends sweep clean

Brand new stadium dome
Buzz of sporty flings;
Grass from a nightmare


Watch TV celebrity
Poignant role-play moment;
Crisis survivor


So much to say
Time lapse photography;
Sweet honey rhymes


Sensorial feel
Disturbing nightmare;
Sudden awakening


Seek peace of mind
In heart's temple;
Bring honest peace offering


Flash of insight
Surprisingly clear;
Complete with instructions


Inner demons prowl
Devouring disturbance;
Mental breakdown


Childhood intervention
Two slots per person;
Real, and second childhood


Old family photographs
Sepia memories captured;
Black-and-white brown shades


Voice of morning
Birdsong celebration;
Finesse well-sculpted


Silent prayer said
To greet new dawn light;
Mindful meditation

does not rhyme, is in 5-7-5 format
and has no punctuation.

should see piece of trash (5)
be sure that you pick it up (7)
And not a woman (5)

be nice and not mean
try and keep your nice church clean
such a pretty scene

our church should be safe
sane secure free from all harm
hear (or here) a great sermon

take your wife to church
wonderful choir member
who has a great voice

bring prayer book home
you can read gospel again
as a reminder none

then you should next month
if vestry member do meet
try to stay awake

Now for my background check
not necessarily for a weapon.

I used to work at local Home Depot
in the garden sectionA previous
vestry member worked down the
street from meHe was leaving
StJames and needed a replacement.
YepYou guessed itHere I am
none other than James Thesarious
Hilarious HornI have already
provided everyone with pictures
of the church and a mapThis
all sounds perfectly clear to me.

Lastly, I am a poet and now number
12 out of over 30,000 poetsIf you

Sparrow song
Window ledge dawn;
Sparkling sunlight


Dry gusty breeze
Bamboo leaves rustle;
Moongate courtyard


Young lovers glide
Zest greets romance;
Sensuous future


Old man limping
His poodle hops around;
Smiles all around


Chinese martial artist
Sword and spear dance;
Deadly symmetry


Food court flavours
Hungry appetites prowl;
Meal time persuasions


This old couple
Share a meal;
Lovers eyes greet


Jade prayer beads
A personal rosary;
Sacred journeys


Long queue winding
Banking momentum;
New currency notes

True Rare Day Horn Hiaku

True Rare Day Horn Hiaku

True rare day is Thanksgiving
Lovely way to be living
Over food we are quibbling.

Which one will have the best taste
Have to eat fast with much haste
By God we were graced.

Now at table we are there
And shall start off with a prayer
Sat what would I dare?

Should I have to hesitate
Before I say, "God is great,"
How long must I wait.

Poor prayer is over and done
Did anyone I really stun
My prayer was a pun.

Wonder where shalt I begin
Now that my highchair am in
"God is great," Amen.

GaGa stands for God Always
God alwaysAnytime, you
boys can stop the noise.
That even rhymesWow.

Songbird acapella
Early morning hymn;
Balcony recital


Blurry haze
Burnt ash off-odours;
Surabaya harvest


Bridge underpass
Homeless man dozes;
Happy dreams lurk


Chinatown brisk walk
Noodle takeaway;


Coin shop interlude
Metallic global trips;
Static travelogue


Darling smiles
Sunset stroll;
Silence speaks loud


Fanfare flair
Just for today;
Death anniversary


Wayside flowers
Mystic beauty;
Unknown aura


Words fail
Noisy passage;
Sense suffocates


Concoct a tale
Long-lost monologue;
Wayside flowers


Motifs speak
Suggestive tone;
Hidden agenda


Sexy disguise
Beauty coaxes;
Plain truth


Steep temple steps
Heaven beckons;
Joss smoke signals


Family gathering
Temple prayer offerings;
Ancestral shrine


Embrace allure
Sexy attire;
Adrenaline rush


Play dazzles
Childlike fancy;
Tipsy memory


Fruit cocktail punch
Buzz of pulse;
Desire sums


Friday textures
Crazy work week;
Winding down


Pretty sunrise
Dawn ushers;
Change presides

Not Let Each Bed Bug Bite

Not Let Each Bed Bug Bite

In the form section Poetry Soup
should start having Horn Haiku.

Many things I left behind
Any of them cannot find
When all are combined.

At church I was wined and dined
God always is on my mind
Being very kind.

Lost things God gave back again
Even saved my soul from sin
My face wears a grin.

May have been sad, wept then slept
God still promises He kept
And sins away swept.

Here is my prayer poem I will 
Use and God dreams does fulfil
Pretty daffodil.

This is for Bonnie who is waiting for
Spring to see God's lovely daffodil.

PSGod will not let each bed bug bite.
So you would become such a sad sight.

God Expected Horn Haiku

God Expected Horn Haiku

God does love us all
With Him all things can do
With His help and aid.

We must be aware
No limits does have our God
All is possible.

Jim Horn

To be added later being that I am over 10 now.


Christmas is close by
Santa's sleigh soon will be here
Open my each gift

At church shall worship
God and Son we love so dear
They heard our each prayer.

Happy we have been
Under our cute Christmas tree
What gifts will God bring?

Unwrapped my each gift
And appreciate them all
Are part of my life.

Memories were made
What we won't want to forget
Are all numberless.

See each ornament
Reflection that shines and shines
Lights on Christmas tree.

What are the options?
Love God and His Son each day
Give Them what you have.

What we will wish for
God in prayer does recognize
Past, present future.

Suffering should cease
Along with hunger and thirst
Disease do destroy.

Remove all the pain
Pressure, feeling ill at ease
And peace must abound.

Final result is
Happiest Christmas ever
Have God to thank for.

Jim Horn

Can you imagine I still have almost
4,900 characters left.

Off cuff completely
Beyond all control and bars

Why be restricted?
Limited to what you say

Horn Pray Haiku

Horn Pray Haiku

Thank God when we pray;
Make ultimate sacrifice;
God please save my soul.

Pray and write a poem,
About each time God and me,
Did communicate.

Once over and done,
God in prayer you should thank;
For great day you had.

Day did disappear,
And to God again did pray;
He was in my dreams.

What I do believe,
That what I soon will receive,
Answers when I pray.

God's answers will be,
Those that I can understand;
Simple, pure and plain.

Answers did arrive,
In shape and form of a poem,
Which I did write down.

Now complete and down,
Poems with my prayers are profound;
You will want to read.

Read them and pass on,
And God did appreciate,
My time and effort.
