Sigh

byGaneshinHawaii

Life is a breath
When it becomes a sigh
A poet is born~

Life Cycle

Life cycle~

Life is a breath

When it becomes a sigh

Innocence dies

Phoenix rises~

 

She left first home

Lips aquiver, hole in heart

Not all journeys begin

With a flourish

 

Vagabond for two years

Took experiences’ knocks

On chin but naïveté

Loyally never deserted

 

Downward spiral

Hurled down an abyss

She lost herself in the hole

In heart she began with

 

Quarter century

A live dead automaton

Mouthing conditioned responses

Until fate relented, interceding

 

Karma ran full circle

She rode second cycle

Tumbling stumbling

Phantom hands cushioning

 

Smudging, crossing

Delineated lines

Defiant, proud

Learnt to stand upright

 

Loosely attached

Bodily, wholly detached

She plays the game

By rote ever emoting

 

She had arrived completing

Second karmic circle

Beat up conscience

More than less, intact~

Painting is by Freda Kahlo

  

 

Holiday Mood

Munchkins
Antics makes moods
Rise as fizz

Holiday feasts conjure
Not to be forgotten
Cherished faces
Unshed tears
Threaten to spill
At emotions’ swell
Tinges of sadness usually
Encircle joy’s brim, happiness
Being best thus adulterated
Our table is oft peopled
By the departed
And the living

Munchkins
Antics makes moods
Rise as fizz ~

this season

rockwell
This is the jolly season
Of fallen leaves
Rains mulching~
Hands joined
For thanksgiving~
Exuberant fellow shoppers elbowing
Madly rushing, covetous eyes, glistening

Friendly frequenting squirrel
Still comes a-calling
And as is my wont
I madly rush to capture
This moment for posterity
It still scampers way, daintily
Yet I cling to hope saluting
Leaves still teetering
On umber branches

Fatty in red suit
Shall “sleigh” in
With wishes weighed
Pocketful of miracles
Made to happen
And hope and wonder
Filled childish eyes
Shall never cease
Shining~
Painting is by Norman Rockwell

Pin Drop

Driven
By day’s din
Agitation replete
Stressed beyond
Beat
Went off
To sleep~
Truant dreams
Evading
“catchers”
Trickily crept
into deep
sleep
awakening~

Pandora
Opened box
Alice
Offered tea
Bunny
Went
Missing~

Utter
Pin
drop
Silence
Is no less
Than
Bliss~
