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

Rachel’s Ladder

Rosie Hardy - Self Portrait

Rachel’s Ladder

     I. When There Is

No darkness without light.
No rest without sleep.
No dreams without love.
No madness without obsession.
No miracles without imagination.

    II. The Builders

Angles and machines build
a nimbus on my breath.
A cherub sends a raincloud.
Archangels bleed excess

   III. The Rest Place

To return
without denial
to a warm body.
My head on a cushion
soul and joy are one.

    IV. The Twin Flame

In dreamland
our silver threads meet:
A love affair in corporeality.
