Chaos in the trees...
Latch on tight-those tender leaves.
Singing cicadas.

Wings like fashioned webs-
Arrayed at sunset. Gleaming.
Summer's noisome hosts.

The trees are ravaged;
A symphony now retreats.
Ushered in is night.
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

What's an empty shell?
One who's hollow. One who's numb.
Caring? Hmm. Foreign?

Aww. Thankyou very much, Sara! It's funny how you mention my 'innocent words.' The poetry that's easiest for me to write tends to be sad and bleak; I do a better job in writing THAT particular kind! This time, since I'm writing short poems, (Haiku) I thought I'd mostly describe nature. By the way, Haiku poetry is simply a style of poetry where the first line has 5 syllables. The second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5. So, it's a bit tricky in conveying all that you'd wish to say. Also, as you probably saw, I was just plain silly with some that I wrote-- purposefully! Haha. I'ts good to hear from you saragupta. :) Thanks again.

Insomnia

Slumber now has ceased.
Lonely nights. Dreadful silence...
Madness leers at me.

Friendship

Heard and answered prayers.
Bright lights that breech the darkness-
Where are these friends now?

Time

Coursing through my veins,
Of life- a crude reminder.
I might live too long.
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

Visions

Vivid hues, shadows...
Image of faces... places
Reeling through my mind.

Unfamiliar scapes.
So strange, and yet they draw me.
What am I to find?

To ignore, I try.
Visions that usher me close;
Dreams are meant for nite..
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

Harley Ride

Sheets of rain. Dark night.
Fever to ride? Indulge me,
Rumblin' beast of chrome.

Tsunami

Transfixed on the coast.
Eying this towering wave!
Dolphins, for me, weep.

Day break

Now, the sun ascends,
For, night has given courtsey-
Gifting her a crown.
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

Always

4Ever, I am.
No other is there like me,
None could hold my thoughts.

Barbeques and Beer

Grab me a chilled one.
This barbeque...crazy-long-
Beer, spells 'plate delay.'

Family

We are family.
Who holds the moral compass?
None, for, hearts do bleed.
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

Hypocrites

The chance to view- do most...
When do we lend out our hand?
Do we empathize?

Per chance, our tears fall-
Reduced to weeping infants...
None to stretch a hand.

Whaaa?

Which makes you and YOU
Hungry so much as to beg?
Never been famished??
When life throws UA lemon, throw the dang thing back.

Us

Woodland beasts slumber.
Humanity robs. Rapes.Kills.
And, animals sleep.

Wolves

Crimson fangs flashing.
Silver eyes avert the moon,
Bloody carcass. Still.

4EverMe,
I can feel the pain, the place from which you write.

Snap; twig under foot
or is it, my heart, my mind
Anon I'm found out

Not that anyone cares
They glance to; they glance away
Too much too little

Or is it the snap
Of things falling to focus
Or never will be

Snap a rubber band
Lightly round stack of note cards
Summarize my life

A small stack it is
Easily held in your plam
Was born he and died

Still wondering snap
There are things without meaning
So what do I seek

Nothing to see here
I wish to be on my way
I need a mission
