LATE OCTOBER HAIKU

LATE AUTUMN HAIKU

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

Haiku- my abiding memory


      january cold
pure white snowflakes are falling-
            write winter poems

      february ice
hangs from the bare tree branches-
            walks in still nature

      march is a lion
harsh cold winds and ice warnings-
             planning my garden

      april and melting
rivers of snow on the street-
            dreaming of sweet spring

      may is a whisper
gentle breezes caress hair-
            I buy daffodils

      june and loud thunder
nature is washing my world-
             touch buds in garden

      july and the sun
my world is full of color-
            write flower verses

      august is lazy
oh the flowers are fading-
            I pen of decay

      september and rain
that is dripping from green leaves-
            walks in the deep woods

      october falling
descending orange beauty-
            poems of autumn

      november chills come
cold crisp winds and blowing storms-
            thinking of summer

      december stillness
waiting for snow to show up-
            I write christmas words

Unnumbered Haiku Coloured In Red

scrubbing with her hands
red stains from the priest's collar
- strawberry picking


choosing wallpaper -
the red-breasted cardinals
in my shopping bag 



Last night of harvest - 
reflection of red blood moon
in his empty glass


red cherry blossoms
before next winter follows
-his last picnic morn 


soft vermillion  wings
flutter on her bare shoulder
- the first glimpse of Spring 


Its vermillion  wings
perching between  rose petals
sips of ambrosia 


scarlet wings  flutter
upon a dry corolla
unsweetened  nectar




Inspired by  Silent One 's haiku /senryu 5//7/5 syllables
using the colour red  - not for the contest

Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus


Seasons of Trees - Split Haikus


Trees with sprouting limbs
bathed by spring's April showers
don
their lacy green robes

Trees with dense full limbs
swayed by warm summer breezes
spread
their green velvet capes

Trees with brilliant limbs
whirled by the cool autumn winds
shed
their burnished gold gowns

Trees with cold bare limbs
frozen by winter blizzards
drape
their white fluffy scarves

The Sparrows Friend

 
The last leaf did fall,
winter clouds bring the first storm. Earth rest in slumber. Most birds have gone south. Cold winter winds staying now, sparrows search for food. Some have black and white crowns, some just two tone brown. They hide in the trees. Sun is bright, cold day, rest upon Earths frozen crust. The water is frozen. Birds seek human friends to feed and keep fresh water, with help they survive.

MINIATURE CREATURES AND NATURE

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.

Merry Christmas

Mild sun of winter 
Spreads a love touch everywhere
Of happy Christmas 

In the slum a child 
Smiles in a red hibiscus
Petals of Jesus 

Blankets offered to
Poor people standing in rows
Jesus in rainbow

In the hospital 
Life smiles in bruise blood and pus
Footfalls of Jesus

Upon the sweet grass 
Jesus smiles in drops of dew
Lovely Christmas hue 

In Christmas flavour 
To all poetry soupers
A merry Christmas

    days will next spin on apples 
    Look! More frogs arrived

     I counted wagons

Feelings from the Seventh Sister

River ever flowing
‘fore Gillette’s “Seventh Sister”
nature's beauty thrives

scenic view sparks thoughts
stone castle amid the trees
represents my life

A cool winter day
exhaling yesteryear's dreams
future seems unclear



Note:  William Gillette's estate, called Seventh Sister, was built in 1914
Connecticut's government took over the property in 1943 and it was 
added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1986.

Time to Make a Change

Winter gusts subside,
Pleasant sunlight pours inside,
Welcome after cold.

Snow and ice grow old.
This peek must be a promise.
Don't be a "Doubting Thomas".

Ice and snow must end.
Bitter winter we rescind!
Traded for warm light.

Sun a timely sight.
Nature's plan unfolds before
Spring can open doors.

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

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)

How is your Karma
It may be winter outside

Karma is basic

Haiku

 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?


 HAIKU; MEMORIES AND OBSERVATIONS and EXERCISES


 Archery
 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.

 First

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


 Alone

 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.



 Memory

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



 Memory 

 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


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


 Exercise II

 Vociferously,
 she announces her mistrust.
 Not Republican.


 Exercise III

 She knew the problem.
 Incompatibility.
 He had to learn it.


 All his writing was
 autobiographical.
 He was egocentric.


 SEASONS

 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.


 Synch

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

My Window's February View

                                    Winter lies frigid
                     Cardinals flit from branch to branch
                                Blindly seeking Spring

                                 Too sad to view more
                            Shades should be kept drawn

                                        Frost smoke rising from the sea

     - 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.

Winter Coats

.



                                              The sentinel cats
                                     Guard post tip top of the house
                                            Growing winter coats

Snowdrops

Schneeglöckchen / Snowdrops / Campanillas  de las nieves 

Zaghaftes Weiß
Die ersten Schneeglöckchen
Nach langem Winter


Timid white
The first snowdrops appear
After a long winter 


Tímido blanco
Las primeras campanillas 
Después de largo invierno
