Absent (O.S.I.)

Hi all,

I am writing the following poem for O.S.I. and the theme is absent.

I bite my tongue
As words are lodged in my throat
Like a pebble in the bottom of a well
I pray you can hear its echo
Breaking through the darkness
To fill this absence

My heart is light
And dreams to fly
Where my failing eyes
Cannot guide it
It thumps louder and stronger
Becomes my friend and guardian

Footprint (Haiku)

Hi all,

I am writing a pair of haiku for Haiku Heights and the theme is footprint.

Fall gleams bare, shimmers
Red and gold leaves shower me
Colorful footprint
Today nature calls
Strong and clear in the cool breeze
Shoes cast their footprint

I am posting for the wonderful memes over at Sky Watch Friday and Haiku Heights.

Heaven's womb
The sun beams at me
Tears of joy

Hunger (Haiku Heights)

Hi all,

I've been away too long!  Here are three haiku for Haiku Heights and today's theme is starve.

Hunger preys
Playing cruel, sick games
Belly growls
Hungry eyes
Finds kindness in bread
Sweet baked friend
Better days
The world full again
Hunger ends

Waves of Autumn

Hi Sky Watchers,

Waves in the clouds inspired this poem from me:

Waves of autumn
In the sky
Says goodbye
To summer
I feel the warmth
Of the sun
Vacate from its place
Turning the trees gold
As the world embraces
Autumn's coat of colors
Happy Sky Watch all!

Moon & Autumn (Haiku)

Hi all,

I am writing two haiku for Haiku Heights and the themes are moon and autumn.

Moon pale and vacant
I fill all my dreams in it
Light encompass me
Did you leave your mark
Recite poems on autumn days
Words resting in trees
