Desert Sands – Haiku/Fibonacci/Tanka – August 6, 2015

desert sands
great Cheops over-shadows
the sands of time

white
sands
burning
placidly
in the desert morn
from a time immemorable
in the land of Egypt – Great Cheops still reigns supreme

Bastet sighs –
when mankind was still young
tall grew the grain
along the river Nile
where now a city grows

Written for today’s feature of Carpe Diem Haiku Kai where we revisit the Great Pyramid of Gaza –  better known as the Pyramid of Khufu or Cheops.  For this occasion we are challenged to write a Fibonacci

the Fibonacci sequence is  as follows:

1st line 1 syllable; 2nd line 1 syllable; 3rd line 2 syllables; 4th line 3 syllables and so on as is the Fibonacci sequence 1, 1, 2, 3, 5, 8, 13, 21, 34, 55, 89 and so on.

Here is our host’s wonderful example:

sun
moon
star light
the breeze
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs –
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden

and a beautiful haiku as well:

secrets
hidden inside
now outside

Night Lights – Fibonacci/Shadorma – February 21, 2015

nightlights_small

Dark
night
golden
drops of light
along the lake front
shimmering brightly this evening
as we listen to coots and ducks saying their good-nights.

Tomorrow
in the morning light,
will magic
still be there …
or will the world be blinded
by harsh bright sun-shine?

Travelling – Fibo-Ku and Shadorma for Barb

My
Mind
Travels
On sun-kissed seas
Of happy imagination …
Seeking a vision of sunshine despite the rain fall …
I feel the salt upon my lips – warm sunshine – memories tucked away for days like today.

Just a trip
Through my mind and yet
The sun shines
The birds call
That was … is here once again
In the sea of mind.

For you Barb

Fibonacci- “kued” – August 3, 2014

Today for Carpe Diem’s Haiku Kai Special, I’m going to write a Fibo-Ku based on a Fibonacci Sequence …  if anyone remembers a Fibonacci is a mathematical sequence … 1 – 1 – 2 – 3 – 5 – 8 – 13 … as you can see the sequence is created by adding the numbers that precedes each other:

1 + 1= 2 … 2+1 = 3 … 3+2 = 5 etc.

Chévrefeuille for the Special calls this a Febo-Ku … obviously the syllable count will be 1 + 1 + 2 + 3 + 5 + 8  etc … This is Chèvrefeuille’s Fibo-Ku:

sun
moon
star light
the breeze
this summer morning
birds singing their beautiful songs –
young sparrows playing hide and seek in the dry sand of the garden

Here’s my try at another Fibo-Ku…

black
cat
saunters …
the alley,
stinks of rotting trash
dark – dank … refuse of ages past
innocent, the cat generates mad fearful feelings
its life represents humanity’s superstitious fears of forgotten memories.

Dawn Thoughts – June 25, 2014

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATilus – clouds

billowing morning clouds
roll like smoke …
rain

Haiku

veils hide the mountains
white silk imitations
summer rain

Fibonacci – Morning Reflections

Grey …
Clouds
Billow …
Soft white mist,
Mysterious!
The city hidden …
Winter thoughts ping upon my mind …
Before I’ve enjoyed my fill of summer’s delights!


I’m going to make this a daily post … my good morning to you all!  Ciao, Bastet!

No. Love Poems… – Fibonacci Poem

Fibonacci Poem

No. Love Poems….

No.
Love
Poems
Just don’t come.
No lamentations.
No crying nor gnashing my teeth.
Alas my dried-up hormones have done their useful job.
Here, I look at the youthful and I really don’t envy them, their romantic throes!
(Famous last words, said before the woman went on an international cruise and met a distinguished Australian poet and author.)

Part Two

Your
Lips
Caress,
Leave me weak.
I hunger for more
Delirium in ecstasy
As your hands play my spine like a Spanish guitarist!

Part Three

Heart
Break
Eternal
Faithless illusion
His wife and children surround him!
Here lies the desolate victim of  illicit love!

Duck's Regata

Fibonacci

Duck’s Regatta

Ducks!
Regatta!
They compete
For their place.
The prize, more food, space
They dance upon the autumn lake so elegantly,
Whilst men’s sails skim along horizons, ignoring their homage, imitating nature.
