Haiku Rally

~~North.East.South.West-Haiku's~~

~Like A Diamond~
White ebony sky
Paralyze mountain top dew
collapse falling star

~Picture Perfect~
Once in a life time
Smile for the camera
Beauty standing still

~Red Showers~
Sunsets are the best.
October, vs' April
Fantasy island

~Reaper Cloak~
Pretty like a nun
Digging and weaving her grave
Embracing the sky

~Karma~
stuck on the sea wall
coast emotions 
overcome by rain

ocean commotion

wind lifts salty air
scent of the sea fills my hair --
fishing without care

pelican dives fast
shrimp on the hook was my last --
strips the bait I cast

turn with quick motion
see crab stealing sun lotion --
ocean commotion

colors of pumpkin

colors of pumpkin, 
vermillion and deep gold---
    veiled mysteries air

branches intertwine
in a sea of canopies---
    harvest moon rises

gilded by the dawn
and swayed by a seasoned wind---
    shades of art abound

FURIOUS ZORBAS







Furious Zorbas*

Nature's Nemesis arrived

Hubris' aftermath !







© Demetrios Trifiatis

*"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!

HEADNOTE

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.
http://www.graceguts.com/essays/why-say-more-the-problem-of-titling-tanka


HEADNOTES
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 VIEWED FROM BLOUBERG BEACH

Hoeri 'kwaggo
raised from the sea – 
the tablecloth spread

a pallet
on which hope rests – 
cold sand clings

Glossary (as I DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO "ABOUT SECTION")

Hoeri 'kwaggo:  Table Mountain, “Mountain of the sea” in Khoi San.
Table Mountain is renowned for its tablecloth when the strong south-easterly wind blows.
Bloubergstand/ Beach: Means "blue mountain" - hence the place name (AND THE ATLANTIC OCEAN IS VERY COLD ALL YEAR ROUND) It is an iconic image of Table Mountain from Bloubergstrand
The motto of Cape Town (which nestles at the foot of Table Mountain, is Spes Bona ( Latin for "Good Hope")
Cape of Good Hope is one of the 7 historical names of Cape Town

EROTIC HAIKU 1- 21

 HAIKU ON LOVE # 1

You leave me after we make love
Moonbeam falls 
A poet shares my sorrow


HAIKU ON LOVE # 2
She coils him
Desolate
Autumn waits

HAIKU ON LOVE # 3
A love bruise
Wicked parrot
Season of rain

HAIKU ON LOVE# 4

His words were diamonds
Wizard of love phrases 
He stole my garments

HAIKU ON LOVE # 5

She offered her warm breasts
To her lover in winter night
Icy wind roared 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 6

Two leaves are tangled
The tree meditates
He does not know our raptures

HAIKU ON LOVE # 7

Words are lost
Glances weak
Glaciered infinity

HAIKU ON LOVE # 8

My neighbour’s wife
Pulls me
To a sobbing counter



HAIKU ON LOVE # 9

Sighs heavy, hidden moon
Moans, pleasures of the night  
Cruel kisses bleed 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 10

She fell on my chest
Stunned 
By the dart of love


HAIKU ON LOVE # 11

Hold on some more and hold on
Until the fire is put out
And he would close his eyes


HAIKU ON LOVE # 12

I would wager
He would leave soon
With a trail of cinnabar

HAIKU ON LOVE # 13

He was a noodle
As her eyes were nearly shut
And bottom of the sea sloshed

HAIKU ON LOVE # 14

I had to hold her like a python
Brute yes I am, I couldn’t lose time
To be ambivalent

HAIKU ON LOVE # 15

His tired legs staggered
He fell again on her bosom
God is so ungracious

HAIKU ON LOVE # 16

Incredible cavern
Big black cat walks on curling passages
In search of snail trail




HAIKU ON LOVE # 17

Last night’s sleep
Washed out 
My lover’s petting 

HAIKU ON LOVE # 18

My husband’s ancient kiss
Fades away
Like charming baubles

HAIKU ON LOVE # 19

A young man hid behind his shadow
At the edge of the river
My bath aroma seeped through his skull

HAIKU ON LOVE # 20

My wife was parabolic
She could not make love
Before her voyage to comet

HAIKU ON LOVE # 21

I can go down her slit
If the river gets more time
To watch my owl

Trumpet of God

There stands a great prince
with a sound both bright and dark
with high clarity

Majestic music
warm and rich that pleases God
a sound all will hear

Roar of great power
the volume and resonance
from thousands of miles

For we shall be changed
a scream heard by all sea shores
the dead shall arise

Wise shall hear the sound
many shall shine bright as stars
some will cry out loud

The transformation
sounds of perfect harmony
the trumpet of God

- Haiku X 19 - Ice King -




                                                The arctic steel blue
                                        Frost smoke rising from the sea           
                                           Wintertime...Ice King rules
      
 



     - I hold many ice cubes in my hand, they melt slowly...my hands  is numb,
        wet and cold
     - There was a lot of mess...water everywhere.
     - (All this just for you....)


     - Picture reminds me that I need to enjoy every day of summer and autumn - 
    -  winter is blue, cold, icy, wet and looong.

WITH CATS IT'S SECRET

WITH CATS IT’S SECRET

stays on fingertips
the softness as though rubbed off
a quiet presence

the expectation
in her simple meowing
and i understand
	
the dog is open
not so the domestic cat
so still and secret

in that pea green boat
the owl and the pussy cat
at sea with secrets

kitty cat has been
to london to see the queen
what did he there?

The Gladiator

The Gladiator

Battered and worn out
he looks shaken, disheveled
from the endless fight

Standing tall and proud
the fighter still undefeated
looks at the audience

Taking in the sight
a sea of crowd watching awed
by his performance

in the arena
his skills in fighting tested
never disappoints

King's loyal subjects
cheered for him to win the fight
the fight of his life

for the king's pleasure
a ghastly entertainment
that celebrates death

Death to the fighters
for those who opposed the king
the roman empire

The king sits restless
as he watch his men falling
to the ground dying

Crowds cheered and shouted
on seeing the gladiator
winning his freedom

HOOKED FISH, FISH, FISHING SHADOWS, FISH

FISHING SHADOWS © Haiku 

Two fins tread water
Fish swim the shadowed shelf ledge 
Breathing  from its gills!


Swimming Fish © Haiku 

Probing fish swim near 
 Fins redirect the swimming ‘school’
And a baited worm waits!



Safe Place © Haiku 

Deep broken ships lay
With some hiding fish
Far from unseen predators.


fish
Hooked Fish © Haiku

Fish fins steer the swim
Far from hidden predators
And baited worm hook-lines!

FISHING SHADOWS © Haiku

Fish under the sea  
Breathing from two gills 
While fins tread water!

Swimming Fish © Haiku

Safely from death's door
Fluttering fins steer the swim
Predators are seen!

DARK SPACES © Haiku
 
Bidding fish on sunken ships 
Lay in gloom from lighted dark spaces
Way far from death's floor!

OUR MIND

HAIKU #12,044-12,048


Our mind is lighthouse
Capturing land sea sky with
All of life's runways

Our mind is like sponge
With its filtering system
That's alive like us

Our mind is labyrinth
Much more friendlier than foul
By grace from the Source

Our mind is structure
Of a hospital with church
And revolving door

Our mind is gateway
To heaven or hell on earth
And that is final.
