Obviate: A Haiku

(one of my earlier paintings)

Beaches, shells, and gulls

Blue Skies, and coconut rum…

Weight…Obviate.

(Weight and Stress…synonymous)

Word of the Day: Obviate

Siren’s Song…A Haiku

Chasm to fathoms below

Sea’s eternal bliss.

Daily Prompt:  Retrospective

 

Silently…it dies…

woods

 

A loophole…peace…hope to gain…
A place to hide…to escape the pain?

Yes, this has happened…and that has too…
Regret…of all these things I do.

Where is this place…of which I search?
Standing…bleeding…covered in dirt,

My face ashamed…I am a disgrace.
I guess this loophole…an imagined place….?

I look…your eyes…and find it not there…
Just anger…judgment…devoid of care.

My head in my hands…I beg of your face…
Show some concern…if only a trace…

Afraid…I look…but only once more…
Your back fades…you close the door.

Wretched…alone…this heart cries…
The hope within…silently dies…

From Snowflakes to Blanket

4511b4a726ff8cdcf0c81e92837292c6
I’m a little snowflake,
I drift about.
 
Looking for injustice,
hear me shout.
 
You label me as liberal,
and think me lame.
 
But I embrace your symbol,
and use it for my name!
 
Snowflakes are small,
and they seem quite frail.
 
But when we come together,
we are a force from hell! 
 
We are the resistance,
marching for our land.
 
So, snowflakes, remember
UNITED WE STAND!

Haiku: Controversy

Anger, hate and doubt,

Faith, love, hope; your choice to be.

Great Controversy!

Haiku is so much fun!  It’s like a math problem combined with a crossword puzzle.  You only have 17 syllables to get your point across; and those syllables must be stacked in a  5-7-5  format.  Often the first and second lines are at odds with one another and the last line ties the concept together.
