counting the floating petals

atop mud puddle

Poetic Fragments

 

Peace

waiting upon

complete willingness

 

Love

Waiting upon

no limitations

 

Hope

in search

purest optimism

 

Forgiveness

waiting upon

complete agreement

on

all sides

Unequivocally

 

start

here and now

Senryu

 

the scream of silence

 

into long deafened ears

 

eternity’s ache

Poetic Fragments

 

gleefully

chasing shadows

illusions and memories

all

from the

comfort

of her  very own

labyrinth

these endlessly

gray

winding halls

castle

on this dark

foreboding mountain

where what was…and what appears to be

wind and mix

where

ghosts cavort…reminisce

almost nothing matters

whisperings

childrens voices

faintly

ring out

into the lonely

distance

singing tunes

about death….and disease

of times long

gone by

now,

stuck humming this haunting

lullaby

remaining…forever

chained

to this dream

Poetic Fragments

 

Those precious moments

quivers

ripples

in this massive pool

this seemingly flat

blue

stilled surface

time

countless

these precious

memories

so few

from

clearest colour,

sharpest details

to those in faded blurry grays

details rubbed flat clean

those memories…

life experiences…

smiles…

joys…

triumphs…

hurts….

and pain…

one no greater

than the other

in the larger

scheme

of things

this massive collective

…..life

 

I am reminded of how short

55 years really is.

 

You will be missed…..

 Goodbye dear friend….

Lilacia Park 048

 

 Lilacia Park Poems(Miscellaneous Scribbles and Ramblings)

 

A-

 

Bright little petals

 

all reaching out to blue sky

 

tomorrow’s promise

 

 

 

B-

 

Church bells rang on…on

 

somber faced patrons marching

 

when’s the funeral?

 

 

 

C-

 

Yesterday’s soldier

 

sky, moon, stars, and clouds above

 

this bench, his abode

 

when can he ever know peace?

 

when can his dreams be silenced?

 

 

 

D-

 

Bumping into friends

 

No longer cyber figments

 

…..a real voice….gasp!

 

 

 

E-

 

Those eyes, those hardships

 

roads wind hither and tither

 

lonely the miles…..his shoes

 

 

 

F-

 

This summer morning

 

sunshine

 

birdsongs

 

a book of Basho, Issa, and Buson!

 

I smile

 

 

 

(G)

 

Buzzing dragonflies

 

such circuitous pathways!

 

this Sunday morning

 

 

 

(H)

 

Up high, a stone perch

 

yet another dragonfly

 

mute acknowledgment

 

 

 

(I)

 

Unseen scamperings

 

this stone perch above the park

 

Ahhhhhh, chipmunk!

 

 

 

(J)

 

In a note book

 

She scribbles

 

on and on

 

her smile brightens

 

perhaps a love note?

 

 

 

(K)

 

This old pool

 

a cricket dives

 

water songs

 

 

 

(L)

 

On this naked branch

 

bluejay quietly settles

 

this summer morning
