Haiku – Waste


Written for: Haiku Horizons


wasteland’s silent cries
echoes in Mother Earth’s heart
breathes in its marrow

Written by calensariel as a comment on this haiku.

That’s similar to how I felt when we were standing on the battlefield in Gettysburg.

Monuments: A Grief Remembered

The land remembers
red, flowing blood of her sons;
mourns — battle-scarred, mute.

Wind, a grief unspent,
wails over fallow fields, cries

This was what I wrote when I got back to my daughter’s that afternoon.

Mixing the Pieces




Mixing the Pieces


There was a time
All felt like it was mine.

One day, it all fell apart.
It revealed to me, my own little part.

It ended up, I was only one piece
That fitted into this picture scheme.

Without all the parts,
Things would definitely fall apart.

Where would this lead us all?
Here and there, with nowhere to start –

Where to fit if we are lost in a box?

Hoping to find, a piece of the best
So we can all finally come to rest.
