Black God

Huge cumulus clouds,
Exploding into the blue,
  .  .  .  Shadowed by raven


2
Valley Morn

Dark hands working fields,
Raven tracing mountain crests,
  .  .  .  Carnal tillers wake


3
Raven Spell

Dark sound raven makes,
Chortles top fir tree, haunting—
  .  .  .  Druids incantation


4
Unfaithful

Snow covers valley—
Solitary raven staining world,
  .  .  .  Love has turned black


5
Outcast

Many years alone,
Suddenly— old thoughts of her,
  .  .  .  Lone raven in sky


6
Mischief

Lone raven cackles  .  .  .
Clouds splinter across the sky,
  .  .  .  Mist cuts down the woods


7
Marked

Full moon crowns tall pine,
Raven landing in cross hairs,
  .  .  .  Dark angels halo


8
Loki

Raven knows a charm,
A child's costume jewelry,
  .  .  .  Colours a black eye


9
Tall Tale

Zenith of winter—
Lone raven in naked tree,
  .  .  .  Spring only legend


10
Dark Angel

In his feathered dress  .  .  .
Raven shrouds beneath the clouds,
  .  .  .  Even eyes are black

*1
Paired truths' paradox
Instant gratifications
Dissatisfactions


2
Black and white suits drone
Crushing joys in stale board rooms
Wishing for lunchtime


3
Only prints can touch
Rejection up on the screens
Instant messages


4
At water cooler
Smiles are leaving as they begin
Punch clock is waiting


5
New lovers are blind
Eyes on mobile devices
Hands in empty laps


6
Paper copies voids
Work a day world is shuffled
Even carpets smudged


7
Message coming in
Break away from actuality
Machine is turnoff


8
Monitoring tables
New job for prince or princess
Thrown cushy with wheels


9
Economy rules
Each worker replaceable
Sociopaths king


10
Drones chirp in dreamworld
Beyond corporate glass room
Birds singing outside

Haiku  ( splendour )

Youth spins out of dream  .  .  .
Children are made as they play,
  .  .  .  In green leaves of grass.



Senryū | Haiku  ( verity )

She walks in beauty  .  .  .
Shines without delusion,
  .  .  .  Certain as starlight.



Haiku  ( choral works )

Sun sings in morning  .  .  .
Music of light starts each day,
  .  .  .  Song birds joining in.



Haiku  ( raiments )

Sun-shower dressed tree,
Rain left bright silver jewels,
  .  .  .  Beads on evergreen.



Haiku  ( showcase )

Wild flowers touring  .  .  .
Fine art pieces we all see,
  .  .  .  Pollen rides with bee.



Haiku  ( changeling )

Echoes from stone walls,
Rain bleeds rocky into being,
  .  .  .  Water drips to wells.



Haiku  ( great blue angel )

With forgotten wings,
Walking on shallow waters,
  .  .  .  So proud stalks heron.



Haiku  ( maddening )

Sun— my nemesis  .  .  .
Even moon is foe with arms,
  .  .  .  Light embraces her.



Senryū | Haiku  ( scrumptious )

Two eyes glazed over  .  .  .
First time naked with my love,
  .  .  .  Icing on our cakes.



Senryū | Haiku  ( rainmakers )

My eyes indifferent  .  .  .
Made hers well as we made love,
  .  .  .  Both crying for more.

1
Sanctuary

She told me with tears
How others had abused her
Our hands knotted tight


2
Infirmary

In whispers we feel
Breaths' suture of souls entwined
Long sufferings bare


3
Red Haired Wonder

Little pouting face
You hate me now but please wait
Never say never


4
Eternals

Your breath so giving
In the springtime of our love
Eyes uncrushing souls


5
Purple Waking

Her lips were pure bread
And prince woke up as beggar
Lone in lost kingdoms


6
Drowning

Breaths underwater
In rivulets of her hair
Man could surely end


7
Stars Clustered

Heavens orbs breasted
Up her laid body
There is Milky Way


8
Innocent Aphrodite

She dominates day
Even light in garden frays
Her little sun dress


9
Arousals

Moisted air belies
Nothing is fair beside her
Wetness on *******


10
Hollows

Into beated air
The soul without any flame
Grasps identity


11
Red Siren

Her skin a tableau
Layers of light and starshine
Freckles dizzying

Wet welling from earth
Deep valleys, hills, sweating *******
I plung into her


2
We are lost at sea
In moonless night our soft cries
Curled waves drowning us


3
Above her in bed
Little breaths lifting our bodies
Eyes, fingers, dreaming


4
Her green eyes are set
Jewels from sargasso seas
My ghost ship is wrecked


5
Her long hair tangles
No struggle in rising— then
We are rapt in bed


6
Her eyes blinding me
Milky way of her body
There is a heaven


7
In forest we taste
Each other in evergreens
Hot dews on the moss


8
Blissful time kissing
My bare thighs sink into hers
Running sands so quick


9
As olive or grape
So shed, paired souls are threshed
Out of their bodies


10
Hummingbirds share truths
Nature sounds with all sweetness
Bee in the flower


11
Always in a field
Wild flowers— a bunch to pick
Herself a bouquet


12
In the park we walk
Flocks of white birds taking flight
Two hearts light as air


13
We kissed under moon
Pox of stars grew flowering
Nightshade of her lips


14
She took me to bed
Skinned in bliss— was reborn, lost
In her satin folds

Brushing my face, hiding eyes,

Frogs in distance sing  .  .  .
Foxes, herons, join in too,

Her gift of flowers  .  .  .
Came at night without garden,

Full moon and she  .  .  .
Beauties without crescent smile,

Rushed from one suitor to next,

Wet welling from earth  .  .  .
Deep valleys, hills, sweating *******,
  .  .  .  I plung into her.


We are lost at sea  .  .  .
In moonless night our soft cries,
Curled waves drowning us.


Above her in bed  .  .  .
Little breaths lifting our bodies,
Eyes, fingers, dreaming.


Her green eyes are set,
Jewels from sargasso seas,
My ghost ship is wrecked.


Her long hair tangles  .  .  .
No struggle in rising— then,
  .  .  .  We are rapt in bed.

In autumn, leaves fall and here is elegy,
Dry are the woods upon their bareness.

In winter, snows creep as they blanket,
White is the sun as it is sailing on high.

In spring, a melting of blood streaming,
Carries new flesh, a green world comes.

In summer, is a light so still and calming,
All creatures sing as they sit on summit.

Peace on Pond

Sun frog so centered
Sitting on whole world a buzz
Lily pads flowering



2
Heads in Sand

Dramas of mankind
To what nature has in store
Heats of long winter

Deluged

In the rains of spring
Love drenched in joys true cleansing
Only memory stains

Out in Opens

Chaste lovers scratch free
Insatiable love makings
Bees in briar patch

In heart of gardens
Angels arrive after storms
Little wings beating

Youth has horizons
Elders have reached a new sun
Beyond a mountain

Bagged

Shy lovers so coy
Faces, face off each other
Pursed lips waiting

Unsaids

Breaths of love in bed
Heft of lovers airy touch
Weight of whisperings

Love Dimmed

All that is left of my love

Inclinations

All dream comes to naught
Still I sing at great mountains
Fantasias of faiths


Spinsterhood

Ancient fruitless tree
Time droops on leftover boughs
Such weight in the winds


Morning Poet

Taste of wings smoking
Flighty tangs breathe in coffee
Words land onto page


Fresh Eyes

Rain clings to window
Morning world is washed away
Now garden sparkles


Springtime

We teared love naked
In joy winter cloths broke down
Rains ******* us

Each year turns heavens verses

Sing love to lowly gardens
Choirs from heaven

Joy parades wings from heaven

Little breaths from heaven sent

How goddess might speak
Voice so illuminating
Scent of ambrosia
From Wikipedia:

In the ancient Greek myths, ambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία, "immortality") is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods, often depicted as conferring longevity or immortality upon whoever consumed it.  It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves.

Little dull birdies  .  .  .
Love own songs by mirror pond,

Hello Poetry  .  .  .
Rube lords with simple vainness,                                                        ­­              
Watch him crown himself.


Hello Poetry  .  .  .
Day sullies night, bright vanity
  .  .  .  Rube is a poser.

Spews self promotion.

Old structure in rage of bloom

Her eyes tearing love fall outs

Rain painting the streets
Colours lost on lonesome roads

Lone white butterfly

Wind stirs about treeless plains
Little things matter

Great oceans moulting
Lost weight of life giving grace
Scales of dead fishes

Alł throughout winter they sing
In tree without leaves

Deep down in her drowning ***

Whole world spins seasons
Time budding graces in trees

Mountain rains in the distance

Wild in flowers of her hair

My ears never so joyous
Moans under light sheets

Round fields traveled in flower
Wheeling in the sun

Hands and lips twining
In the sun a garden grows
Lovers in a field

Such dazzle waking
Her morning hair brightened air
Lemon scent of sun

Sleet fog raking skies
Ghost mountains strobe in distance
Both here and not here

Moist wind strafes garden
Among maples and water
One day we shall kiss

Night dreams conjure births
Such waiting life waking us
Bird song in morning

In her bohemian flat,
The breadth of heaven.

Creation

Musical is life
Strange order out of chaos
Magic symphonies


2
Red Headed Sky

Dim stars of heaven
Such perfect imperfections
Freckles on her face


3
Existence

Fantasia of days
All night long what dreams have come
Misty morning sun


4
Passing

Blindly saw it come
With one touch she loved me whole
Lost the world entire


5
Empyreal

Winter never was
Late morn her hair in my eyes
Breeze through summer grass


6
Grey Love

Dried flowers in vase
Lovely garland she once gave
No colours left now


7
Sunny Acolyte

In corners of room
Her heart shined so innocent
Small plastic Buddhas

Quintessences

In prisms of light
Different colours of truth
Rainbow perfections

Cold Clears

All in stark light falls
Memories stirred with the colds
Wind in autumn leaves

Godlike

Bashful light blooming
Lovers in morning meadow
Brighter than new sun



4
Love Harmonies

Flowers' colour sounds
Song of birds, buzzing bees, all
Notes of creation



5
Time Vain

Popularity
Such fleeting and hollow wins
Spoonfuls of nothings



6
Widower

Last hill at sundown
Old man picks mountain lilies
Lone pine in distance



7
Metanoia

Out of soul sameness
Dark daze blur of obsession
Comes bright transcendence



8
Pole Star

Autumn falling leaves
Dull winter merely blows in
Brighter sun beckons



9
Looking Back

Gold light caps mountains
Regrets fade as melting snows
Moon slice in the sun

Salt legs before diving deep
In scent of ocean

Her body glowed like dawning

And crowded rooms in volumes
Speak as the crush of loves goes.

Rain, softly falls in old deer valley,
All the woodlands swimming underneath
The steaming fog.  What peaceful sound
I hear, softly rings out of the sparkling
Woods and meadows, chimes like a thousand      
Sleepy bells announcing the rising sun,
Who sings loudest, after the rains.
