two commentary on education in China senryu

imagine school rooms
with subjective history
what would children learn

witless perceptions
if children had to repeat
without novelty

Archangel Choir


Archangels

Archangel Choir

gift of Gabri-el
holy charge
mystical spirit
most divine

voice of Bari-el.
audience to souls
intonations to vanquish
torture and punishment

heritage of Micha-el
scimitar
amidst pre-molars
hierarchies symbolized

chattiness of Rapha-el
mid shades dried rose petal
mugwort to heal venom
mandrake to quell fiends

wisdom of Uri-el
alchemy of wine
chemistry of depression
dire portention

animated spirits
oppositional archangels
atonal satisfaction
harmonic tenors

Pygmalion

pedestal ivory goddess

pedestal ivory goddess
curves finger traced
on marble gown
thus, sculpted

gustatory impulsive
artistic kisses
rebirth
focalized tongue
perfectionated
appertained chattel

steered daily
soothing, changing, disengaging
dovetailed shapes
though empirical junctures
and worrisome intangible ontologies

deliberately she cracks
dominated by overseen epochs

*****************

Today’s prompt was to “praise of a present-day hero, someone who has made a difference in your own life.” I always did like My Fair Lady and the concept of creating your own perfect love. I create my characters in my fiction with this ubermensch in mind. Thus this is to Professor Higgins, or is it to George B. Shaw? Or is it to a Venusian statue?  This is poetry…so you may interpret as you please.

behold no evil


No Evil by Maude McDonald ©

behold no evil

overconfidence
strictly prohibited acts
revolting habits
contumeliious rudeness
count each monkey eye:
regard no abominations
behold no evil
emmunciate no offense
better commandments

four love senryu


Gemstones and crystals are recognized by many cultures for their healing and uplifting energy.

four love senryu

snatching absent souls
incandescent dream catcher
captivating love

sizzling lava bed
slowly flows to its demise
mercurial love

gemstones never love
anchored securly to Earth
love is dynamic

complex love affair
say the right thing on facebook
so people won’t laugh

haunting suppleness


image by Christophe Gilbert

haunting suppleness

clear-cut pigeonholed art nouveau
harmony excised amidst
repetitive melodic figures

from the depths
of nonchalant dismissal
methodical construction

dense tapestry of sound
inferior rushing acceleration
too disciplined

vibrant resonant glow
razor-sharp detail
pandering, diminishing
articulated elegance

Heavy ~ GeeeO on Deviantart

elephant slave

she is at my back
talking to my shoulder
bubbly in the morning
yet she mourns

bereaved family
lamentations
disaster
uncontrolled loss

yet the world
has lost its sorrow
and i am told
she will bounce back

tears will cease
with formula
and copious
vegetation

degradation
never forgets

cliffhanger


I Want to be Free

cliffhanger

engulfed
daredevil moon.
sneaky shadows.
sterile darkness.

forlorn
stormy sea eyes.
wild wind screams.
exuberant misplaced tears.

accommodated
recycled melodrama.
theatrical mesa.
fiery opus.

generously
recapitulated visions.
affected fatalism.
missing hangman.
