summoned bird calls
tantra and morality 
zestful garden-----------------  in waiting

Haiku Triad

Monitoring self,
nature made her decisions:
disaster rained down…

The water rose—
Life sank beneath the level;
hope floated above…

Like Noah, we wait…
flooding water standing still—
Vultures roost on wires.

Where Light and Dark Part

Where Light and Dark Part

windows, light fading
bright altar set to atone
dusty red crossroads

Mysterious Morning

dawn meeting of minds
sharing facts in orange mist
espionage days

for the good of all
like roses in the green hall
make the hours brighter

joy and liberty
underneath the singing birds
misty dreams of morn

The Night

Blooming moon on head
Pinky sky sprinkles the stars
Celebrating love

On the waist of night
Eyes enlist earthly blue dreams
Roses offer life

Journey Through Life

Journey through Life  ©

happiness, the fire
forges our steel to withstand
pain and thorny times

laughter melts metal
cold bath sets the steel mettle
fine blade to cut life

blade wrapped in fine silk
until the next battle comes
pain and blood drip down
