night country road

heaven knocks
echoing through grey clouds
shaking the palm tree

empty fountain
with its goddess statue –
a desert of trash

at the Jazz cafe
simil-Duke Ellingtons
rock the summer night

Ah – honeysuckles bloom
along the ancient dirt road
hill a ight with moonshine

Full Circle in brief – April 25, 2015

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

a sunflower bows
in the howling rain storm –
puddles like seas

those tiny beaches
with their small rhythmic waves –
puddles making love

frightened seagulls
screech in the wind-filled rain storm –
lightning and thunder

on the high mountain
a lone red peony grows
nightingale’s lover

Morning Haiku and Waka – April 25, 2015

 

sunroot flowers

the sunflower turns
following its lover
all throughout the day

this flash of lightning
distracts the way-ward lovers
caught in a rain storm

deep puddles reflect
the soaring flight of the swallow
over the open field

 

wind of time

wind of time

 

walking along the beach
flotsam and jetsam sculptures
delight the poet

waves crashing on the shore
Neptune’s wild contribution
to life’s symphony

 

 

 

 loudly making love
hidden in the dry rushes
ducks and swans

soaring into clouds
the seagulls look free from care
the wind whispers

in this rain storm
sparrows fly erratically
limp paper lanterns

 

 

Morning

 

in the darkest night
lightning outlines the shadows
creating a new world

these mountains
speak to me of creation
every morning

 

 

 

 

among peony
butterflies and cats play
before the rain falls

the nightingales song
distracts the poor sunflower
it hangs its head

Carpe Diem Special – Full Circle – Puddles August 20, 2014

Here we are again at Carpe Diem Special – Full Circle!

Here’s how it works:
“Today our second episode of this new feature at our Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Special weblog. I called it ”Full Circle” and the goal is to write haiku with the twelve (12) words I will give. It’s a kind of word-whirl and you have to use the words given in the clock-wise direction. So every word has to come in the line of its place on the clock e.g. sunflower you have to use for line one (1) and rain storm for line two (2) and so on.
Here are the 12 (twelve) words for this new episode:

1. sunflower
2. rain storm
3. puddles
4. sea-shore
5. shells
6. making love
7. garden
8. waterfall
9. stones
10. sunrise
11. peony
12. shadow
Sunrise

Sunrise

golden sunflowers
bowed under a rain storm
earthworms in puddles
waves on the sea-shore
forlorn empty shells rustle
love-making sea gulls
 summer garden
a waterfall babbling
over rounded stones
first light of sunrise
a lone  peony blooms
lengthening shadows
