Nature births haiku
But dear lover, love for you
Births sweet senryu

Meter

You, song withing each song
And hum withing each hymn
why so reluctant to love me?

A Simile (Pirouette)

A simile saved me.
It jetted across sky
It dived the deepest sea
It climbed a mountain face
Only to rescue me.

Only to rescue me
A simile sang songs
And danced all night long.
When I was so burdened,
It took the weight from me.

I Am The Wind Vane (Tuanortsa)

I am the wind vane.
I depend on the wind
To turn.
It is my energy.
I need what wind gives
To be me.
I am the wind vane.

I am the wind vane.
To be me
I need what wind gives;
It is my energy.
To turn,
I depend on the wind.
I am the wind vane.

Skeltonic couplet – Accepting

Love forsaken
And heart broken
By she who’s just
For I in lust
Sought love’s pleasure
Through sex’s measure
From another.
So why bother?
Please do not halt
It is my fault,
You deserve best,
I failed the test,
I’m unworthy
So please, leave me.

Snow Angel (Triolet)

I had found her out in the snow.
She was someone’s first doll.
I guess at last they’d let her go.
I had found her out in the snow.
All she had was her pretty bow.
Like most, she was once all.
I had found her out in the snow.
She was someone’s first doll.

Split couplet – Relax and play

To fume and rumble in endless haste
It is a waste
To not embellish the journey in time
It is a crime.
Robbing one’s self of patience’s subtly joy,
You can’t enjoy
The sweet things in life - full of gaping grief
For you were brief.
So tomorrow to have a happy day,
Relax and play.

At a Closer Look

At a closer look,
The flower,
And the bee,
Are more beautiful
Than the distance told.

The bee,
Looking at the flower
Could only stare;
For at a closer look,
The purple petals,
Become a blanket,
That wraps him,
In its warmth.

At a closer look,
The flower,
And the bee,
Are more beautiful.

Frank

He is a potent muse
Placed on an explosive fuse
He is a quiver of humor
He causes laughter’s murmur
He is a whole lot of fun
Pleasure in words he spun
To gain the attention of all
Science he made a ball
We were inflamed in fun
But to logic we could return.

- Frank is a professor at MIT.

A Kiss 2

They call it a kiss
A butterfly’s touch
The gentlest rest

They call it a kiss
A summertime breeze
The warmest caress

They call it a kiss
A drizzling rain
The heavenly dress

They call it a kiss
A sweltering sun
The desire for less

They call it a kiss
A bee's painful sting
The soul of true stress
