Under grey storm clouds,
We continue with our sails
Onwards and upwards

Pushing The Storm Away

A Powerful Haiku

With faith and courage,
A boat sailed toward a storm,
pushing it away

Lost Love

A Haiku about Unrequited Love

Ten minutes too late
Perhaps we’re not meant to be
My dreamboat had sailed

Golden sky above
Sailing into a big storm,
On a mirror sea

Strokes Of Passion

Strokes of Passion‘ – A small poetry collection by Haunting Angel

Hi everyone,

How’s everyone doing? 🙂

Thank you so much for all the support and love you’ve given my poetry so far. This was a long time coming but I’m so happy it’s finally here. I’ve decided to gather up a handful of poems from what I’ve posted on this blog so far and put it in a Wattpad book for those of you who prefer that platform. I have arranged these poems into a thematic series that explores the ups and downs between losing one’s voice and the triumph of finding the creative power within.

From wingless birds to creative masters – voices can be silenced but there is nothing that can stop wild imagination when it strikes.

You’ve all been wonderful people and I don’t think I would have the guts to do this without your enthusiasm. So thank you once again and please enjoy. There will be more to come so please follow and stay tuned for more updates.

God bless and have a nice day!

Yours truly,
Angel

Pappa’s Love

A poem by Amalia Abbar – Happy father’s day 2018 🙂

twinkling eyes,
dimpled smile,
he is wise,
with a style.

he’s my king,
(I, the crown),
loves to sing,
not to frown.

Pappa’s love,
is the best,
like a glove,
warms with zest.

Temptation

Would you take another bite?

Again slithering, it arrives

Serpent with temptation,

Offer hard, impossible to resist

Us, consume fruit; fruit consume us

Resist, it’s futile; choke on the offer

Temptation: the belly-bulging serpent

arrives but will he win again?
