Seasonal Haikus

Summer’s warming wind,
Blows gently through green leaf trees.
Rain is often thanked.

Crisp golden leaves fall.
Autumn comes as Summer fails,
And the air grows cool.

Snow covers the path,
Inches of cold frozen ice.
Will the Earth survive?

Flowers dig through frost,
Nature comes back from near death.
The birds fly back North.

The Cloudy Shallot

A cloud wanders slowly through the sky,

Sometimes it’s lonely,

But sometimes its friends float by.

 

Years and years ago,

It saw a beautiful land of leaf and sea,

But now all it sees is you and me.

 

Grinding, digging, and choking the land,

A cloud in agony,

To see the dirt turn to sand.

 

Warmer and warmer,

The Earth grows hot,

The cloud may as well reside on a cooking Shallot.

Another World

Rich and poor,

Businessmen don’t sleep on the floor,

Like the children,

Like the elderly.

 

Gold and mud,

They’d be happy for a flood,

Leave the children

Leave the elderly.

 

Brick and straw,

The rich always want more,

Exploit the children,

Exploit the elderly.

 

Medicine and blood,

No one helps but they should,

Help the children,

Help the elderly.

 

Help them all.

My First Haikus

Poetry today,

So I wrote some short Haikus.

I posted them here.

 

The Cherry Blossom.

Pink petals fall to the ground,

Dancing in the wind.

 

The Quarter Pounder,

Unnecessary gherkin.

Arteries thicken.

 

Said the Queen to Ned:

When you play the game of thrones,

You win or you die.

 

Please like or comment,

I hope you liked my Haikus.

Come back tomorrow.

H2O – A Poem Of Love

You’re stuck to my window,

Never far from sight,

You’re in my heart, body, and mind,

Without you, I’d be dead and blind.

 

If I couldn’t touch you with my lips,

Kiss you softly and drink you in,

My throat would cry out for you,

Cry for your deep pools of blue.

 

I’m sorry I ignored you,

And placed my hood above my head,

I’m here for you now,

I know we had a row,

But you did mess up my bathroom floor…

Teddy Bear

A stuffed bear sits on a toy shop shelf,
A little girl wants it for herself,
Her mother buys,
Because the bear lights up the girl’s eyes.

Dragged on the floor at home, school, and play,
The bear is the girls best friend today,
Through thick and thin,
It never once got chucked in the bin.

Years later it’s on a bedroom shelf,
It’s been replaced by a green wooly elf,
The girl learns to bake pies,
She gets older in her mother’s eyes.

Even later still a little girl plays hide and seek,
And in the attic she has a little peek,
Her mother’s teddy bear,
Placed on a dusty old rocking chair.

Dragged on the floor at home, school, and play,
The bear is the girls best friend today,
Through thick and thin,
It never once got chucked in the bin.
