Haiku

 

(A1)

the sun refused to shine today

counting broken promises

(B2)

empty rhetoric and dull threats

this bird has already flown

(C3)

smirking under the cover of moonlight

crickets serenade his thoughts

2013

 

hired dogs of war

political talking heads  

with hardened fingers

pointing across seas

to far-off lands

picking riddled sides

haunting precarious futures

sending tomorrow’s children

while fevered rumors

and blistering chants

languages of war

ratcheting up again

settling  widening differences

with more death, malice, and destruction

trading rocks and stones

of centuries past

for all of the

missiles and bullets

of a warped modern day

 

so soon

 

blood

 

spilled

 

again

 

again

 

again

Churchill Woods 0623 007

churned up from the depths

life and death…..in equal parts

pure neutrality

…of the creation of new

…and the destruction of old

Dented Saint

Dented Saint

 

In chasing shadows

a crushing of anxiety

a building of uncertainty

the only certainty-

-are the pains that will have to be endured

 

their hurt will be without end

their suffering without end

their peace will be crushed down to fragments

their resolve will be broken

no worry

 

…..parts of you will be taken as well  

 

gradual building of giants

small things with exaggerated shadows

elongated phantom forms

magnified sounds and imagined torments

 

the enormity

of our burdens

overwhelms

 

your pain

 

but

 

my empathy

 

I see no other choice

 

but to carry……

 

 

truth be, I would know no other way

evening’s approach

gradually light to dusk

life’s hurried pace slows

brightest starlight

darkness of night contrasts  

lonely footsteps down the street

Imagination

Posted in Free Verse Poetry with tags , , , , on September 4, 2013 by lengesinski

imagination

 

boundless

not to be confined

formless

of many shapes

limitless

only mortal boundaries

palette

every colour scheme
