Haiku

 

this early morning

with only the moon above

silent,  train station

Poetic Fragments

 

Where does

this

time go?

these finite

grains of sand

these stages

of

leaps, chances

…and life events

tears

smiles

embraces

how well spent?

how well travelled?

what have we learned?

chances

taken, missed, avoided

success or failure….

no object

have  these life

experiences

hardened or softened

who we are…..?

or

once were

what have

we become?

have we chosen

to

embrace this

riddled

uncertain

intricate

life

facing forward

or live

in the comfort

of a

familiar

comfortable

deniable

safe

past

Haiku

 

morning shows it’s hand

many stars dotting the night sky

….chase infinity

(A)

tomorrow’s promise

open eyes that cannot ever see

today’s soul whimsy

can know no better

lost in a time…lost in place

never to turn back

 

(B)

soul recognition

memories…not of this age

silent knowing…timeless bond

eyes meeting…searching

of another place…these lives

of another time…moments

memories…long past

echo into the morning

this full moon shines on

wind leaves no trail

but one opportunity

wind leaves no trail

kaze, no time for regrets

prepare for tomorrow’s path

Captured

prize

thing

object

marginalized

imprisoned

feared

teased

 

this,

 

my home….my prison

 

once

this hunter became

the hunted

 

fate sealed

 

inside,

looking out

my story alone

but….

 not where it all started

 

not

where it was all ever meant to be

 

but always,

so many eyes

staring

 

only the night

brings about

temporary peace

 

only to have the day

start

over….over….over

but,

you cannot ever really know me

 

truly know

how and what

makes me

tick

 

can you ever

really

 

know

 

how it feels?

 

these walls

these bars

 

these years

 

rage

wild impulse

 

so far

 

deep

 

inside

 

but

lessons still have not been

learned

 

 

1914….2014

 

how time does indeed rush by

 

but not all things

 

change

 

life is life is life is life
