Categories: seasons,



they’re almost gone now
how brown, bare the branches look
some toys in the leaves

when rain turns to snow
how sad those two last roses
brave faces with tears

apples      bruised apples
scattered on the frosted green
and this twiggy frown

music in the wind
late october’s final song
dancing red and gold

talk of winter now
old dog by a crackling fire
shutters rattle      pings!

photo of dear dad
he loved that fulsome willow
fallen leaves      marker

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."

Sun glints off ripples
Play of light in sheltered cove
Scenic lavatory

Backyard full of stars
Footsteps crack on frozen grass
Moonlit lavatory

Forested mountain side
Above twisting single track
Rider’s lavatory

Over arid land
Falling rain evaporates
Hot Aussie dunny

Sandy beach stretches
Tropical coral waters
Pristine lavatory

Beneath StPaul’s dome
Lies manicured garden
Monumental lav.

End of Days

                                                        war between nations
                                                    rivers overflow with blood --
                                                         the earth convulses

                                                         a crimson sky glows
                                                       meteorites fall like rain --
                                                         hearts fill with terror

                                                           stars fall from the sky
                                                   darkness overcomes the earth --
                                                         screams fade to nothing

                                                            end of days has come --
                                                     all life has been extinguished
                                                             the earth is no more

HAIKU #1-14 (Taken from my files totaling 12,016 haiku, started in 2/9/06)

Ants red as wine                                      A black spider seem to own
dine on yellow nectar                                squatter's rights right on
from a juicy mango                                  our front porch.

Day of rain and                                         A quiet gentle breeze brought
zero visibility, then                                     thoughts of Belize and
pastel evening sky                                   New York's Hudson.

Morning draped in silk                                 Drenched from his walk
of white as we await snow                          a lone man sat basking on
and sleet and cold rain                             bench in sudden sunshine.

In dreariness of winter                               Driving home by night
my philodendron buds stands                      I fled the signal of a white
erect and frozen                                     hand hitchhiking.

Earth held in traction                                 In temp of one hundred
by glistening silver moon                             a black bird basked
full like a balloon                                      in my shadow.

Blond rabbit pregnant                                 In dark of night 
with spunk often visit and                           With full moon bright
side with the husband                                military copters all in a row.

A spider sleeps all day                                 In early morn my pen
then wake up and work                                poised like stillness of
at post twilight time                                  trees awaiting breeze.

Rain and Love

standing in nature

water mixed in love

Poem Details | by Leon Enriquez |
Categories: blessing,


(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

Summer Day

hot dry wind blowing
no rain clouds in sight today
a summer day dawns

Poem Details | by L'nass Shango |
Categories: philosophy

The map

Glacial ice melting
The climate suddenly changes
Old relationships.

When the blue jay sings
Listen how wide it ranges
The boundary of spring.

After rain rainbow
Thunder makes the coastland smile
Faith provides the oil.

So I map landscapes
With audacity to see
Change, a boomerang.

I search through petals
To find a woman's soft heart
Felt a bumbled sting

No bridge left to cross
Love drowns everything in tears
So the cuckoo sings

midday darkness heavy
    rain pounds, winds howl---
           trees topple as huts crumble


blacked-out night
     eerie silence for miles---
          dog whimpers and hide


sun shines bright on
    full clotheslines for miles---
        sad smiles from grief-stricken faces

*To all those who prayed for my country, the Philippines, thank youThe typhoon changed course and only a small portion up north was affected It is unfortunate however, that 2 people died due to electrocution, an effect no doubt of the storm.

Smiling Rainbow

thunder and light strike;  
after the rain gives way to
a smiling rainbow

Poem Details | by Thomas Pitre |
Categories: allegory, introspection, life, seasons,


 Quietly filling
 deep cups of the red blossoms.
 The morning sunrise.

 The rock bowl is full.
 Filled by the rain for the birds
 and for my quiet mind.

 Dried stalks of rhubarb
 turn brittle in the summer.
 Born again next year.

 The sparrows come back
 to say thank you for their home
 I lovingly made.

 My red dogs eyes gleam.
 Before eating, her eyes ask
 is it OK Dad?


 The strong bowstring sings.
 My arrow will find its home
 I turn to sip tea.

 First Love
 How reluctantly
 the shy, young man moves forward
 toward the full, red lips.


 In the maiden’s bed
 He found his heaven and hell.
 Such was his first love.


 Small favor to ask.
 Please spread my ashes on the sea.
 No wife, no roommate.

 Who is Buddah

 She poured my green tea
 Until the cup ran over.
 Now, I know Buddah.


 Cousin Roni was loud.
 Married a Samoan man.
 They both ate roast pig.


 My old friend, Bucky.
 Carried a gun in his boot.
 Afraid of himself.

 Old Friend

 Alvin slapped his first wife
 and then he married a man.
 I don’t know him now.

 Exercise I

 he crosses the wide, busy street,
 to catch up with love.

 Exercise II

 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.

 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 He had to learn it.

 All his writing was
 He was egocentric.


 The autumn raging
 I am blinded by red leaves.
 Too many to count.

 Surf crashes fiercely.
 Shadows lessen, skies turn gray.
 Winter storm moves near us.

 This Spring, my house burned.
 I now have a better view
 of the blue mountains.

 Fresh ink on blue lines
 the words come like hungry bees
 to form my Haiku.


 SummerI feel strong.
 Equal to birds in the tree,
 and pebbles near feet.

Summer rain

summer rain drums on
window panes, of such magic 
vegetables grow

It is my understanding that this was not considered for a "Traditional Haiku" contest because the first line is Capitalized and and likely also because there is a comma after 'panes'I think this is silly but such, I'm told, are the rules of "Traditional Haiku"

		Widening cracks drought has made,

For the rain contestWhen I was a boy, the deep south suffered through an oppressive

those torrential rains finally cameIn less than three hours everything and everybody was

Farewell in the Rain

Farewell in the Rain

rain drips through the trees
kissing soft eyebrows and skin
overflowing eyes

tongue steals a rain drop
from the beloved’s ripe cheek
or was it a tear

goodbye soaked in the rain
farewell cries the broken heart
more tears rain drops fall

Haiku Collection

icy rain thrashing down 
coating ground with silver hues
gleaming, glistening.

moon beams shining down 
cloaking earth with silver glaze
smiling at lovers

river rushing by
crashing down slippery rocks
white water churning.

autumn leaves scattered
hues of golden browns and reds
whipped up by wind.

Screaming hurricane
trees strewn, lying uprooted
debris everywhere.

oh, elegant swan
startling snowy white feathers
astounding grace.

osprey perched high
dives and surfaces with fish
leaving just a ring.

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

In Spring

Driving home from work, I watch the darkening sky and the trees along the streets bending in the windBig drops of rain begin to splatter against my windshield until suddenly, my entire car is being bombardedAs the moaning wind picks up, the downpour increases and I adjust my windshield wipers accordinglyNearing my neighborhood, I glimpse a foretoken of spring.

behind their mother
young quail scurry in a row
March winds scatter rain

Soon I am pulling into my driveway, wondering vaguely where the baby quail were bound for and relieved to be escaping the onslaught of cold wind-tossed rainMy spirit has been lifted by the sighting of the quail family, for I know better days are ahead

A few weeks pass, and I find myself becoming excited as I always do after April has arrivedI begin noticing the various plants and trees of my small city, in particular, the burgeoning buds of my own front yard  pear tree, and then at last it happens; I awake one fine morning to my favorite augur of the season:

outside my window
myriads of white blossoms
the trill of birds

Going Haiku Crazy

*Silent grave yard*

Calm,dry,stale air
no one comes to visit here
dead and forgotten
*Earth Core*

Hungry hearts collide
sweet love under a full moon
earths core is spinning
*Mix Breed*

Fangs break through your flesh
your blood flows into my veins
vamperic embrace
*Drive by*
Stars sprinkle the sky 
the moon shows its full splendor 
I hate collage kids 
*Tree Top*

Swaying with the wind
natures greatest rain dancers
dancing for heaven
*Rain Killers*

Death do to wet air
dry throats gasping for water
thunder cries for them
Baby crying out
let me soothe and comfort it
back into the pot 
*Gurrr Me*

Venom racing through
body reacts and stiffens
I want to STRIKE you

Mystic Rain

dark gray canopy 
swells with moist trailing essence
a drenching downpour

heaven weeps its gore
cries for oppressed multitude
paradise opens

mystic rain gushes
floods fill banks with mud and blood
silently God speaks
