Short Verses and Other Curses #4

Haiku and other short poetry and prose I’ve left scattered about and throughout the various cyberhaunts of mine…

****

laugh long in woe’s stead
skip your stones across the deep
mock the keening call

*

scrape away the rot
’til only sweet meat remains
save what may be saved

*

who am i to say
who you have the right to be
who am i, indeed

*

women of the world
mothers and mothers to be
god hath ordained thee

*

entangled we roll
each clinging madly to each
caught in fate’s cross winds

*

even when hidden
even when undesired
happiness is there

*

money is the voice
which those with speak, and to which
those without listen

*

stitched and tightly seamed
joysorrowlovelossdespairhope
a patchwork of me

*

life offers it all
though, if it is not taken
life forsakes it all

*

listen not to noise
for it’s pronounced with meaning
once it’s heard, it’s heard

*

the pond, cool and deep
enlightened frogs bathe content
lo! first came their leap

*

with the winded leaves
with the doves in their mourning
I explode with life

*

staying still, quiet
showing only peace, they come
writing this, they flee

*

whither I go
wither go I?

*

is less truly more
to give even a little
seems to take so much

less is truly more
to give even a little
seems to mean so much

*

now that they have grown
into wonderful beings
every day is mine

*

tell not: show what is
ask not: do it just because
want not: agape

*

if not valued true
diamonds, soon, would lose their shine
surely, too, would we

*

dying, castro turns
after a revolving life
he turns to haiku

*

let the serpent slide
let the vulture pick the bone
let the angel be

*

seek within the grain
the smallest reveals the grand
imagine the sand

*

one accomplishment
if I can do just one thing
even just one thing

*

what compels the awe
are miracles miracles
or just is as is

*

what must be endured
before the blossom unfolds
heaven only knows

*

a sailor’s reward
life awash with memories
how grand the ocean
