Haiku to you Thursday: “Endless”

The rooms are endless, /

Like stars in the universe /

In my summer’s dream.

[Editor’s note: This takes the same idea as last week’s haiku and takes it in a slightly different way.]

Haiku to you Thursday: “Infinite”

Infinite the rooms, /

yet empty the mansion – /

Save one with flowers.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Darkness”

Darkness is my end. /

There is no empty god –/

Only the moist fear.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Churlish”

Lumpy, churlish clouds /

banging against the horizon, /

bloodied by the sun.

Random Acts of Poetry: “White feathers”

White feathers and flat tires: /
Lost dreams to which we aspire /
Ride the wild wind and rocky road /
As we struggle through life’s occluded code. /
We plug in experience and face neglect. /
We bet on love with a gambler’s regret. /
We dare to be bold, but run a timid race, /
Girding our loins, defending our space. /
The night is young, but the day is old. /
The young seek mercy; the old only scold. /
Wisdom is a feather forgotten by the roadside. /
We leave nothing to chance, not even the rock slide. /
We bury our tomorrows in things we bought /
And deal with the past as if it were a bill best forgot.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Bruised”

Bruised, you come to me: /

flowers darkened into night, /

love purpled by regret.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Clouds”

Heat builds through the night,

in weather and in desire:

clouds of rain and sweat.
