Haiku to you Thursday: “Finally”

Finally found me. /

You say you knew me back when, /

But I was not lost./

Haiku to you Thursday: “Longings”

World full of wonder. /

The angel of death leaves soon. /

Short are the longings.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Dream stars”

Tonight I dream stars. /

Worlds enveloped in wonder. /

My dog wants a walk.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Align”

I sit, wait, and age. /

Celestial bodies align. /

Mine aligns with dust.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Parting”

My heart jumps up. /

The elevator lurches down. /

Your lips part for mine.

Photo finish Friday: “Flower plea”

"Oh, please, don't pick me."

“Oh, please, don’t pick me.”

Flower plea

Oh, please, oh, please, don’t pick me.
There’s only a short life within me.
Leave me so others can see me.
Let me be so I can be me.

Come by as often as you like,
Be it in a car, on foot, or a trike.
I’ll be here for all to delight.
To pick me would leave only a blight.

I’m here for only a short while.
Let my bloom help others to smile.
Do not give in to temptation or denial
And leave nothing but a joy defiled.

Oh, please, oh, please, don’t pick me.
There’s only a short life within me.
Leave me so others can see me.
Let me be so I can be me.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Afternoon”

The afternoon creeps, /

Each minute an hour high /

Piled with things not done.
