- Haiku X 64 - Into Empty Space -



The graceful ballet
My work almost completed
The gloomy gray sky

Explore your shadows
Allow yourself to feel joy
Fear of loneliness

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.

five haiku

Such a disaster 
Waking up in the morning
Shamelessly white 

Haiku
 Self- tanning cream
The pride of looking sporty 
The mirror pulls face 

Haiku
Deep philosophy 
The poet is in deep water
Saved by low tide

Haiku
One types of success
When your work brings happiness
And not endless doubt  

Haiku
The loser a man 
Who knows he`s incompetent  
Yet accuse others

The news I read
Been the same for fifty years
War and film stars

REOPENING OF THE SCHOOL

First day to school is very good for children like us, very cool.
We meet our new friends and old one’s too,
But we don’t know we should catch whom.
Children are excited to know the teacher,
As they need a good future.
 We come to know the rules of school,
So that we do not work according to us like fools.
We share our tiffins and tell our feelings,.
We ask last year’s percentage ,
To know whether the child is of good stage. 
We give our introduction lovingly,
So that everyone may know us clearly.
There is nothing to study much as its first day, full of fun.
We go home hand in hand ,
To remain life long friends….

The Wolf, Coyote, Fox and Hound

The Wolf

The wolf guards her brood,
Bones of trespassers before,
Death to the unwarned!

My snarl says it all,
The wolf rules this land, no doubt,
Tread lightly, my friend.

The lone wolf unleashed,
Don’t trust the strange traveler,
Trust is never free.


The Fox 

The fox senses spring,
The hound is too tired to fight,
Conflict delayed, friends.

The hound hides in wait,
"How smart are you, Miss Foxy?".
Nature in action.

The fox loves to play,
The hound takes his role to heart,
Frustration sets in.


The Coyote

The coyote sleeps,
Wild pheasants roam peacefully,
Hunger soon brings death.

Sunset brings brown death,
The rabbit tastes too gamey,
A nice change of pace.

A cry in the night,
The coyote is a force,
Mutual respect.

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?

VOICES OF SPRING

                       VOICES OF SPRING


                        by nature driven
           some hidden wild bird finds voice
                         at crack of dawn


            day by day watching
                     watching tiny buds unfold
                                     to full blown image – spring


                          nature paints spring
                    she work in color and form
                         overlapping the frame


                   sunny sky
                                   cerulean blue
                                                      sunny mood

What Does The Fox Say

 when heart is broken
and wings can no longer fly
  what does the fox say?

  world turned to chaos
gays and lesbians were arise
   what does the fox say?

    terminator came
Obama provides healthcare
  what does the fox say?

   cold evening and gleam
two souls meet and turned off light
   what does the fox say

    Fra-ka-ka-ka-kaw!
Let us give them time to work it
  Hush! they need to mate.





Note//: I dedicate the sound that fox used to create when they mate; 
           "fra-kaka-kaka-kow!!!" to PS' loveliest poet, SKAT.

I quite like Haikus

I quite like Haikus.
They are short and fun to write.
sometimes...they work out.

There is just something,
not the personality,
but something that works.

Sometimes they become
More than simply ordered lines.
They are poetry.

Leaning on Dad

one thirty phone call
legless teenage son in need -
dad's taxi deployed

falling up the stairs
legless teenage son in need -
dad's support required

incoherent sounds
legless teenage son in need -
dad's patience tested

vomiting in bath
legless teenage son in need -
dad's memories stirred

falling out of bed
legless teenage son in need -
dad's muscles tested

sleeping in stupor
legless teenage son in need -
dad's constant vigil

long sleepless night
tired exhausted dad in need -
full day's work beckons

EXERCISE OF THE MIND

HAIKU #12,049-12,052


When I write haiku
My mind in spa called Iris
And I am in charge

My body seem poised
Like personal trainer firm
As muscles of mine

Reward is in thoughts
I'll own like a work of art
Bidding me to bid

I want to be toned
By fresh colorful visions
With vocab of worth.

My Family

     young couple in love
nurturing parents now gone
       left their legacy

       global  heritage
 french, spanish, lil' italian
       irish and german

      a real smorgasbord
  main ingredient was love
       served to all of us

        one older brother
younger sister - my best friend
       grew up on a farm

        life was lots of fun
 but there was work to be done
     raised with faith in God

        strong lineage tree
branched with children of our own
       fed with lots of smiles

RHYTHM OF THE SEAS

RHYTHM OF THE SEAS lovers join hands on windward deck – sea legs unwind ~ caribbean beat – we salsa this way and that warmed with rum punch ~ moonlight pools in my teal green eyes – relief from work week heat ~ a cool breeze caresses our cheeks – serendipitous shivers ~ bottlenose dolphins - ride the rhythm of ocean tides ~ hear the heart singing of moonlight breezes – amorous palpitations Kim Rodrigues © 2016 Series of Haiku

TANGENT




Black crow surveys
Two sparrows chat;
Food for thought

~~~~~~~~~


Air-con leaking
Messy affair;
Slippery pathway

~~~~~~~~~


Two toddlers laugh
Playground adventure;
Proud parents chit-chat

~~~~~~~~~


April showers
Thundering rain drops;
Wetness blooms

~~~~~~~~~


Moments freeze
Swirling slowly;
Rainy day moods

~~~~~~~~~


By my work desk
Piles of paper books;
Hoarding feels good

~~~~~~~~~


Telephone call
Old friend chuckles;
Brief encounter

~~~~~~~~~


Chocolate ganache cake
Home made delicacy;
Out of this world

~~~~~~~~~


Time and time again
Same old complaint;
Not enough time!

~~~~~~~~~


Kahlua and cakes
Tea time conversations;
Mingling sighs

~~~~~~~~~


Stone bench moments
Old man resting;
Sunny sparkle

~~~~~~~~~


Bamboo leaves
Spiky ornaments;
Oriental scene

~~~~~~~~~


Arithmetic means
Weak economy;
Tighten your belt

~~~~~~~~~

Flash Flood

a storm is brewing
dark hordes bristling to descend
dissenting thunder

coalescent scouts
in tentative teams essay
sun-parched earth awaits

sizzle of drizzle
pheremonal petrichor
harbingers of hope

cool breeze in the air
their work done, drops sponged, expunged
the deluge follows


Written 15 April 2016
First line changed from "storm clouds in council"  to meet contest requirements.

Control, Attack, Restore

cell splitting
cusp of freedom on the edge
splashing joy

damage spreads
cells lament tormenting truth
dying still

even so
new creations work harder
threatening

disease calls
stubborn from birth to its sleep
rattles heart 

heart reacts
brave on the sun's horizon
hope instills 

cells remain
raped inside you by forced smile
they know it

SACRIFICE YOUR TIME

SACRIFICE....it,s giving up somethings valued for the sake of other considerations!...
Most important thing one should sacrifice to achieve what he/she wants in this life is TIME!..
but the problem is that most people are sharing TIME with the so called valuables that is derailing them from success and is expecting an excellent result!!....
In your work place,school,street relationship if you aint sacrificing your time there is no way you are getting to the pinnacle of success or to the level you wanna be!..
Even in your relationship with God,if you aint sacrificing your time,he will always be at a distant!!...you don,t expect a man that sacrificed his time and planted on two acres of land and one that planted on one acre to get same harvest...nor a dedicated student that reads for like six hours daily and the one that reads for just one hour daily to get same result!!....
Give up on those VALUED things that is derailing you for better considerations!!..it can be a lifestyles,relationship,friends etc..
any valuable that is channeling you from the parts of your dream or success,cut it out!!...
maybe painful now,but bet me,it will surly pay off tomorrow!!..
Better be known as a fuckboy or jonzing girl today and be successful tomorrow than be the happening guy/girl today and regret tomorrow!!..
Channel your energy and your time into positive things and the parts of your success!!...
In your workplace,school,relationship,even in the streets sacrifice your TIME!!..
Put in your best as if your life depends on it!!...
Cut off the VALUED negative!!...
Surround your self with the necessary valued things!!
Be the best in what you are doing!!..
And watch success chase you pants down,as grace speaks on your behalf!.

Business Haiku - Improvement and Reailty

Ideas for improvement.
No one has bothered to listen.
Winter of discontent.

Slacker employees?
They work hardPush with Square Wheels.
A Spring awakening?

The landscapeNo blame.
Should have planned downhill journey.
Thumping could be fixed.

Are Bosses unaware?
Square Wheels are always thumping.
ListenSmall Improvements here.

Wasting time you say.
Boss will not make any improvement.
Kick his butt downhill.

Praise from boss for efforts.
Way too much wasted energy.
Push with more effort?

With praise of boss for efforts.
But too much wasted energy.
Tender resignation…

Dreams of improvement.
Shattered by reality of being ignored.
Square Wheels always thump.

Things all built to last.
Wagon is quite nicely made.
Wheels must be improved.

A wagon not empty.
Round wheels are most abundant.
Implement some now.

CITYSCAPES



Early morning agenda
Buzz of Monday surprise;
Ordinary work day styles

~~~~~~~~~


Crowds congregate
Train station congestion;
Sea of mobile handsets

~~~~~~~~~


Heartland playground
Toddlers re-invent playtime;
Happy commotions

~~~~~~~~~


Sea of blank faces
Each a fine story;
Checkmate situation

~~~~~~~~~


Odd one out
Smiling old uncle;
Good morning sunshine

~~~~~~~~~


Muted cacophony
Three old ladies talk;
Hypermart bargains

~~~~~~~~~


Headline news screams
Another war somewhere;
Quirky exhortations

~~~~~~~~~


Obituary page today
Sample faces gone away;
Passage to a new world

~~~~~~~~~


So much sadness here
Suffering outbursts implode;
Quiet desperation

~~~~~~~~~


Neighbourhood police visit
House call noise complaint;
Seeking autographs

~~~~~~~~~


Bougainvillea outburst
Maroon, orange, pink, violet;
Shades of heated arguments

~~~~~~~~~


Rain clears hazy outlines
Skyline now crystal clear;
Original apparitions

~~~~~~~~~


Listen now and hear
Crickets melodrama;
Nightfall by city fringes

~~~~~~~~~

Haikus with commentaries by Etiemble Translated by T Wignesan

Haikus by René Etiemble, with commentaries,  Translated by TWignesan 

(Taken from Etiemble’s only collection of poems (out of thousands which he burned in a fit of rage against the university in 1983): le Coeur et la cendre: soixante ans de poésie (the heart and the ash: sixty years of poetry)Paris: Les deux animaux, 1984, 158pHe had also published a critical work on the haiku.)

1.	Epigraph strictly intended “for the heart and the ash”:

For fear of dying
of leaving dear ones behind
he did die of fear

(As the above seventeen syllables, which forced themselves upon me in October 1983, do not contain any latent kigo nor patent kiregi, I can hardly claim they make for a (proper) haikuLet’s simply pretend that they are made up of seventeen obsessive syllablesPage 15.)  Pages 92-97:

2.	Haikus for Konrad CZYNSKI, Columbia University in the City of New York:

Millions of diamonds:
sun shines on this freezing rain.
Thousands of dead trees.

    “The length of the haiku which does not permit itself to be laid out with blank spaces within its three metrical units, (yet) here in France and elsewhere is presented as a tercet; I insist on preserving its original form and thus have let it run over two pages (in one line).” P94               

3.	Not a cloud in sky.
pond pitter patters: downpour?
burnt grass scent fills air.

4.	May winter be late
on these white flakes of April! 
Petals of flowers.

5.	
(a) Milling sea anemones
carnivorous under sea:
my field frozen under.

 (b) Milling sea anemones
carnivorous under sea:
field of frozen white.

(c ) Milling sea anemones
      carnivorous sea flowers:
      my field frozen under.

(Etiemble says even Basho didn’t always respect the 17-syllable countAnd adds: “Basho may never be able to say that in this page he didn’t recognise and approve (at least) ONE haiku!” Page 96-97.

Box

I work in a box 
Dressed up neat neat down to my socks

Is A Paradise!

For women and children think too:
If the money are real thing - work is true,
But think twice - trade union is a paradise!

VENTURE




Feel the pulse
Dawn ushers light;
Songbird sermon

~~~~~~~~~


Noisy feet detour
Winding footpath;
Suffocates silence

~~~~~~~~~


Busy overload
Mobile devices talk;
Choking silence

~~~~~~~~~


Dreams evaporate
Working day attire;
Drowsy loitering

~~~~~~~~~


Morning temple crowd
Chanting melody;
Incensed offerings

~~~~~~~~~


Sleepy eyes gaze
Blurry focus here;
Work day conspires

~~~~~~~~~


Blank faces
Crowded lift descends;
Zero contracts

~~~~~~~~~


Strange interface
Sea of faces;
Out-of-place

~~~~~~~~~


Subtle tension
Deliberate silence;
Roaming devices

~~~~~~~~~


Office mall complex
Busy feet intersect;
Faces unnoticed

~~~~~~~~~


Cold weather presides
Mindful meditation;
Sense finds feeling

~~~~~~~~~


Pretty woman
Crowded atmosphere;
Train ride punctuation

~~~~~~~~~


Stray conversations
Handy mobile cellphones;
Subway friendly talk time 

~~~~~~~~~


Shaggy dog walking
Owner on a leash;
Random fertiliser

~~~~~~~~~


Office encounters
Dance of work regime;
Busy distractions

~~~~~~~~~


Business verbiage
Action in commotion;
Productivity gains

~~~~~~~~~


Sea of faces
Awesome potential;
Lost in a crowd

~~~~~~~~~

Mother of a Donald Trump

Well I'll Be a Mother of Donald Trump

Worst face ever met
And starts to get better yet
Did with deep regret.

Ugly sure was word
Reference to her had heard
Dumb as dodo bird.

God her son's consent
So could run for President
No money was spent.

Was a barroom smash
Have President who talks trash
Who likes Calabash.

So bye bye for now
Will have to get by somehow
Her under did plow.

Bruised with a big bump
When Democrats want to dump
Should try Donald Trump.

Tried to work out kink
Donald Trump was name of drink
Dumped down kitchen sink.

Death felt when she kissed
What was once we should have missed
Moment it was brisk.

After a brief moment they should 
have brisk him away I always say.

Super Bowl Blues

Packers--green, gold, white
Steelers--black, gold, white--colors 
just as close as scores

game ends--exhausted
bloated, eyes strained, throat hurt--sleep;
morning--traffic jam

sportscasters recap--
winners, losers, interviews;
at work now--bowl blues

An Errand Boy

Words on lines
poetic errand boy
tied to pen

(c) Adeleke Adeite.
An Haiku without 
traditional syllable count.
It describe how words are 
employed by poets to work 
on lines through the 'pen' :)

Night Hunt

The grass rustles

after nightfall—

armadillos hunting.

Gorgeous Garden

(a few pairs of haikus
Enjoy this unique style of writing and pen on, 
dear gorgeous poets! 
Let your poetic talent grow like a gorgeous garden...
thinking of a garden, 
here's a poem dedicated to gardening!):

Dirty hands touched ground
I run my hands on fresh land
I'm a GARDENER!

Hands handling hope
I take my tools and work hard
I'm a HARD worker! 
(Oh yeah! You can tell by the sweat of my brow!)

Loner with tired hands
I do labor with fervor - 
Not a forlorner! 

I take my time to graze
Around my Gorgeous Garden 
I'm a true GREEN THUMB!

"I work till I see the beads of sweat down my face - that's evidence that I'm a dedicated worker on this liberating land...
I work to see what tomorrow brings...I'm standing my ground and I'm plowing my gorgeous garden!
I handle difficult tasks back then and right this instant! Now, I know where I stand! I can make a stand in this land that is 100% grand!
With my gardening tools and I, we can work miracles and we can work dusk to dawn again and again!" - a quote that I have made!
