- Haiku X 70 - the Beginning -

Thousand and one Nights
Gothic and Romanesque rose
I call to the Earth
The Moment has come
The Choice is no longer mine
By goodness and Love

Stricken by grief heart

Flooded by myriads tears

Cruel men rejoice!

In congested homes of slums
The poor people live –
No one listens to their grief!

Be All That You Can Be

Sun and sand and beach
Life has some lessons for me
Be all  you can be!

Sad conversations
May healing come to you soon
And children be safe!

For all you have done
And wherever you may be
May you rest in peace!

The Healing Sun


Painful long night passed
Tears on pillow ran many
Dreams forgot to come

Sun came through window
Found lonely suffering heart
Healing wound at once!

Candles Burn In Memory

~ With thoughts of those who died by the hands of evil ~

                      candles will burn bright

              when we feed their fragile flames

                      with God's healing fire
