An Old Flame (Haiku)

old shadow, appears
so close, brushes my arm, soft
out these lips, your name

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

an old candle’s lit
its wick black, burnt and used, but
the smell hasn’t changed

faceless man, sitting
behind a windowless house
fanning a trapped soul

no sign of breaths left
only unnamed small flowers
what’s left to the soul

wisdom in decays

Re-post: What is Christmas, part 3


This is a re-post of an old post from Christmas 2011. Apparently, this image below has been used as a prompt by the Bluebell Books for their Short Story Slam Week 19. I didn’t have to enter. It’s already done by the kind folks at Bluebell Books. I re-post this so you can all visit their site and read more wonderful poems written by talented poets. Please click here to get there: http://bluebellbooks.blogspot.com/2012/01/short-story-slam-week-19.html. Share yours too at their site if you have one. Happy poetry reading, friends!

Christmas to the eyes of a 39-year old.

find me an old tree
that needs its roots to survive
it’s where Christmas is

This is part of a 3-part series of a search for Christmas from a lifespan perspective (3 different ages). Please also see my previous two parts on “Where is Christmas” Series here (part 1 and part 2). I think I have found the answer to my search. Similar to finding happiness, the answer is to look inward, not outward. I hope the same for all of you too. I hope you have found your Christmas and will find it in the future. Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays. Be well, be blessed.

A Sleeping Jewel (Haiku)


laying side by side
a jewel in your mother’s eyes
while you steal a yawn

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a shower of gems
come pouring down from heaven
bless the sleeping one

I must say, a baby yawning is the cutest and funniest thing to watch 🙂 Just saw a picture of my friend’s baby earlier yawning away in her mommy’s arms and it made me smile.

Welcome, A Miracle One


what’s that?
ugh…bright light, bright light
i don’t like this
and…brrr
why is it so cold?
listen, all you cruels!
i never said i want this
put me back!
put me back
inside my home
where i was comfortable
but oh
what’s that?
i know that voice,
i know that voice!
come, come closer
let me hear you again
yes, you are the voice
you sang to me before
so sweet and gentle
say something again
i need to hear it now
put me to sleep, please
it’s been a long day
i’m tired

Congratulations to my friend and her husband for the arrival of their first born. Welcome to this world, baby Zoe. Here’s a haiku dedicated to you, little one. May you continue to bring miracle and happiness to your family.

oh you sweet angel
go to sleep dear miracle
a view so lasting
