Four Senryu of Resolve


Rodin's The Blogger

Four Senryu of Resolve

love weighs down the brain
to an obsessive resolve
grips it like a vice

staunchly admire
community elders
enduring resolve

brave souls scrutinize
merging minds with something new
heart-racing resolve

value, don’t debase
pro action ere reaction
resolve to evolve

Three Urn Senryu


The Family Urn

Three Urn Senryu

funeral poems
nostalgic and descriptive
buried with the urn

a life that was lived
a person that’s in our thoughts
ashes in an urn

friends and family
stand at a marble headstone
lay a pewter urn

One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession


Bubbling Spring

One Haiku and Two Senryu About Obsession

bubbling spring
bring life force to village
fierce in task

inhaling your words
i obsess on their meaning
as if they were mine

love anchors my brain
to some obsessive resolve
grips it like a vice

NightTime Triolet


NightTime Triolet

At eleven PM I go to bed,
for I must give my brain some rest.
I close my eyes and lay my head;
by eleven PM, I’m always in bed.
Though I wish to relax, I find instead
some hot balloons lift up my chest.
So,when, at eleven, I am in bed,
dreams don’t give my brain a rest.
