Haiku


Silky-smooth breeze

Water pours in scented ease –

Spirits unsheathed.

Where I Go

A place I go to
Every year
Ablaze and humming
Season to season
A riot of serenity. 

Just thinking
About it
Stirs the heart
Fires the bones
Cleanses the mind. 

What better place
For being
For drinking 
For watching
For kissing
For loving?

There is no
Traffic of clutter
Here – rather
The hushed calm
Of earth’s pleasing 
Charms. 

A place I want
To show you. 
A place awash 
In ardent colour. 

We all need these places
We all need these places.

Everyday

Everyday

I think
Of you
Golden
Moments
Infused
In laughter.

Everyday
I think
Of you
How
Together
Is better
Than never.

Everyday
I think
Of you
No words
Now
Can make
Us martyrs.

Everyday
I think
Of you
Fresh
As flowers
Adding weight
To hours.

Gravity

I
  fall
       into
             your 
                     laughter
over
       and
              over

A lake of rippling calm.

Presence

With you by my side,
All of time recedes; 
Like an ebbing sea
Sucked free of history.

With you, the road is clear –
Rivers glisten in the sun,
Peaks offer glimpses of joy,
Living is the pulsing ploy.

With you, zesty spirit,
Flowers tingle with freshness;
Touch springs in the air,
From here to everywhere.

Nurture 

Beauty falls

Resurrected by

The hand of love

Lily of the Valley

I bought you some flowers
Once,  to welcome in the Spring
A March celebration
Fresh love singing
Across continents.

How soon their glory
Faded, stripped and shorn
Of wild imaginings.
Words soon soured
Mingled with grief and sorrow.

Lying between your thighs
The sun failed to rise
On our poisoned lives
Yet the sweetness we shared

Remains clear as a stream
Burnished in the stunted
Rays of the winter sun.

This desire suppressed
By a terse affair
Steeped in joyless pain.

The lily shall rise
Again,  pulsing
With a bright promise
Richer and rarer.

Unmixed with confusion –
A glorious scent
Lasting through the seasons.
