against dimming lights
silver tears
kiss(ing) exposed flesh

haiku #1

distant silver moon
earthly carnalities

haiku #2

sakura rendezvous
lovers exchanging kisses
with dreamy lips…
sumptuous love bites
taint just below the nape


Response to Carpe Diem #1484 pouring rain


blurred lines

village kids
don’t break all the plum branches
for cattle whips

cows deftly grazing green fields
ducks quacking instinctively

a crane on the rice paddy
in a village in autumn

continuation of life
mountains and lush greenery

sleep on a journey
then you will understand my poem
autumn winds

frivolous butterflies caught
in paradoxical dreams

falling to the ground
a flower closer to the root
bidding farewell

withered blossoms crushed to ash
swept up in ocean of dust

into the seas
throwing my sandals
rain on my hat

windblown droplets stain my face
perishing in sand and waves

polished again
the mirror is as clear as
flower-like snowflakes

in the depths of black oceans
grey memories colliding


Response to Carpe Diem’s Renga Challenge #4 flower-like snowflakes
