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

this wall had bred love o’er time
wisdom in decays

a forest, silent
ghosts fading back into trees
resolving the night

Haiku on Review


a life being reviewed
a pause, steps retraced, and then
brace the wind forward

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

this path behind me
rained, stormed, sunned by life’s lessons
my backpack’s heavy

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

a lost love reviewed
tears that no champagne can stop
but party on, love

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

don’t like what you see?
adjust your view or your seat
this object is fixed

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

last year in 30s
waiting for the curtain fall
stage is near empty

The Purple Treehouse: Week 4 (Haiku)

 

Haiku on Spirit


in this silent night
when life finally settles
spirits celebrate

*******************************

with a candle in hand
alone he ventures outside
her spirit summons

*******************************

she bids him farewell
a river runs through her cheeks
a spirit so frail

Ties That Bond


I.

she splashes rain drops
she shouts at rainbow, while mom
ponders where time went

 

II.

what’s a thanksgiving
asks the young girl, and mom winks
it’s when you arrived

 

III.

a face in photos
reach out to cheer the brokens
ponder that, we should

On Meditation


in this space alone
gone are the shrills of the world
i’m left with my own

************************************

“keep mind in order,
don’t let thoughts take over mind”
becomes the new thought

************************************

my mind simply slips
i feel no more of tingling
as dream captures me

************************************

answers come to me
during my walk, as fresh air
opens up my soul

************************************

oh come, heal my soul
i open my heart for thee
my long await peace
