MADD TREATS 2021

To my friends and family and my beloved followers…Happy Halloween.

It is true that Madasahatter has returned -hopefully with more treats than tricks.

Give me a moment also to dwell in the Happiness that is my new home. I am happy to be home online at my personal, poetic blog. I have found joy and a new found Happiness in my new apartment as well as in my new furnishings. All things, well most things, are put away and sorted out. Of course, the move of August 2021 was long and draining, but so worth the change.

‘To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:’

So now Madasahatter can return to new and old things.

Poetry!
Poetry!
Poetry!

I am exploring new poetic possibilities while still holding to a strong reference of traditional Haiku and or Tanka. Of course, I am not just limiting this blog to Haiku and Tanka. I am expanding into the uncharted territory that is Micro Poetry.

Follow along with me, my friends, and let us explore this mad, mad world of Words. Mostly written in English of course. ūüėČ

So without further delay, some holiday poems…

*Four or more lines; Haiku of four lines (sometimes known as haiqua)or longer have been written, some of them “vertical haiku” with only a word or two per line. These poems mimic the vertical printed form of Japanese haiku.

4-LINE HAIKU…

Halloween dawn‚ÄĒ
a human shadow
cannot move an inch
towards the nether world

in the fog
a faintly reflected scent of
life and death…
gliding ghosts

HAIKU…

autumn sunset
the glimpse of
a pumpkin field

evening fog
where ghosts appear
but faintly

white vapor…
the war dead
floating

MADD JOURNEY – ZIMBABWE

Alas, my Good Followers, all good things must come to an end. And so it is here with my final Madd Poem¬†that I¬†conclude this wild and most exotic world-wide journey. I hope in the years to follow that there will be less international strife and struggle, that more nations shall be added to the list of Sovereign States acknowledged by the United Nations,¬†by ALL of Humanity.¬†Until then, my Madd Maniacs…

MAKE LOVE! SEEK PEACE! AND LOVE YOUR FELLOW MAN…

WHITE FEATHERS
