hi all, y’all

how r u, lone star?

roundin’ up a posse

for saucy bar-be-Q

hopin’ to see live

armadillo near amarillo

with lotta luv from

big ole’ heart o’ texas!

beloved master

 

sweetest blood-red rose

comes weeping over city

bright tears, mourning star

dying bears love’s stigmata

risen in perfect beauty

 

epiphany 2015

David

plays the vigil

on piano as i read

passages

from old testament;

quilted stars

shine

across table runner

below window.

sangria

scented candle

flickers,

light of the world

illuminates

simple wooden

creche;

its characters,

sewn of soft felt,

arranged by

young child’s hands

to encircle and gaze

at a holy babe,

God

wrapped in

helpless humanity.

white lights,

silver and gold spheres

on Christmas tree

sparkle

in bow window.

glittering star

on treetop

points to sunrise

enlightening;

warm pinks

on cool

blues

of earth’s pale

winter

sky.

apology to Basho

 

garden’s yellow star

shining between dawn and dusk

i claim her melons

My response to CDHK prompt to “revise” master haiku 🙂

pure fragrance

Image

 

observe morning star

breathe lily-of-the-valley

touch rose of sharon

 

i belong to my beloved

friend and lover of my soul

 

 

Aside

let there be light

 

celestial bodies

moon’s face reflects sun’s glory

blazing star flames out
