Remembering You

Remembering You

A ghostly flower blooming and withering,
(or blot) blinking with colors that strain to brightness,
to equal those of what were seen before;
fragments, with the music or plain utterances
attempting to be as loud (or as soft)
as what they really were...

But all in vain.

Blurred and ephemeral. Just for a haunting and fleeting...
Many times an unexpected visitor,
an intruder, inside...

What is complete and constant is that depressing spirit:

Void of form and details, yet lingering, encumbering,
dragging. Punctuated, highlighted,
by the thief that intermittently
gives, curses, and leaves

with a piece.

Awaken a Reddish Haze

Awaken a Reddish Haze


Nocturnal shadows rise with the Flamingo

charmed by the sunrise a reddish haze smiles.

Prone upon the pillow cherished teacup pouts

hushed morning sonnet whispers at my window.

Dreams left to wander my fan begins the day

humidity now departing the sea birds serenade.

Sand dunes sparkling as diamond glints sparkle

grasses flow serenely as terns hover surfside.

Mild on shore winds as hot water is now ready

a royal blend steeping; cherished teapot grins.

My Siamese cat yawns, awake for another day

the tea tastes sublime; awaken a reddish haze.
