Doubtful one thousand
A poet of great talent
shows us this old way
Now the old is born anew
Thus becomes our expression

Hmmmm. Thats kinda neat. I like it:)

evening approaches
trees bending in the light breeze
heavy with raindrops
some leaves falling to the ground
organic green confetti

Sometimes; alone
I revisit mystery
dog without a bone
forgetful of history
and unable to atone

asking us to change
to remember who we are
and honor what's here
to remember each other
peacefully loving

morning, dear doubtfull....right back atchya! ya know reading tanka, letting the images sink in, seems a more complete form of haiku in a way - where haiku is just a taste, this is a whole bite :)

the rain has eased now
wind is still going so strong
the fresh air feels crystal clear
strong breeze has really blown through
clearing out old, bringing new

bedazzling sun
warming the break of this day
morning moments out
watch the spider on it's web
glinting below wispy cloud

*kewl* form to play with...thanks for the idea doubtful..


a dandelion
paperweight form, frozen there
a piece of the earth
giving birth to peace within
amidst the mess on the desk

the sun in my eye
gleaming in bright reflection
chasing the storm clouds
as if they were puffy toys
sunny is a good boy now

earth constellation
healing ancestral level
of mother earth's pain
and the separation of
generations of people

september morning
cool clear air gently blowing
bright sunlight shining
green leaves droppping one or two
trees releasing just a few

frost on the windows
foretelling of days to come..
winters tease calling.
days of warmth and summer fun
mem'ries fading with the sun.

fire-cracker heat
explodes desert summer days
embracing the night
breeze whispering the promise
temperate cooler seasons call

and melancholy feeling
fills me with humility

seems like every day
push-pulls me and I tire
daydreams inspire
lights a homecoming fire
promising a sweet release

^wow!

started out sunny
by mid-day clouds had appeared
toned down the bright light
and a wind came from nowhere
what is stirring in the air?

I think I try this
Words in sevens and in fives
How am I doing
From nowhere come all the words
Its still kind of hard to do

changing friendships
perhaps due to energy
moving and shifting
contracting and expanding
pulled in different directions

a hand extended
grasping air...watching you go
heavy heart sits still
footsteps are hard to forget
echoing on empty streets

this night of all nights
is full of humility
and strong memory
a surreal reality
that was not surreal at all

black bear in the night
foraging for winter's sleep
walking casual
down the middle of my street
paying me no never-mind

awake from slumber
have cup of tea while reading
sleepy poetry
with curiosity see
what gifts arrived in the night

America wakes
blue eyes wide, white skin red hair
looks around and sees
her turbulent children rise
tussling in the new day


(morning Doubtfull, you home is lovely. Love all the writes)
