Treasure Island

Haiku magic


haiku
a moment
to treasure

lost in the
universe
counting stars

haiku
sets the mind
into a different gear

breeze
leaves dance
with light

haiku
fresh way to get
the mind awed

looking over city
three children talk about
growing up

haiku
the mind gets a new lane
to explore

chip by chip
new chick cracks
open the world

haiku
a crystal clear tinkle
in the mind

the old brass bell
solid and clear
memory of school years

haiku
a bewitching tug
at the heart

solid faith
devotees pray to
headless buddha

living room solitude
the crashing water from
the silent waterfall

our living room
the Last Supper
never ends

buddhist full moon chant
a fiery saffron
our passion

candlelight dinner
flickering -
our smiles

new tight blossoms
an old woman readies herself
for a walk

Poem of the Day

poet George Gordon Byron

So we'll go no more a-roving
So late into the night,
Though the heart still be as loving,
And the moon still be as bright.

For the sword outwears its sheath,
