Dead Silence

come Closer

YOU. Yes, you.
Now let me look at you
My brown eyes, dead
but they are open still

My lips don’t part
Not a sound, not a word,
Just a breath of flowers
To cover this corner

Blue, purple, pink, red
Golden rays of sunshine,
Can’t show it on my face;
Can’t contain it in my mind

Make sense of these colours
Or would you call it nonsense?
Call it what you will,
This EXPLOSION in my silence

Fond Memories

Oh, where can my doggy be?

dog-crop-flip-BW

Finding leads
On where my doggy could be.
No one seems to know
Dead or alive; where is he?

Missing my best friend:
Emotions evoking
Memories
Of calm little doggy
Running up to greet me,
In my constant company.
Extinguish not the lamp,
Searching must go on.

In Peace

A serene acrostic poem by yours truly

In the peaceful air
No trouble, all is good.

Puppy sits still,
Enjoying
All that nature has to offer,
Calm and content in
Enchanting purple blooms

Is life getting you down? Here’s a haiku to pick you back up.

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

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?
