haiku and senryu about annoyances

waves pound on beaches
bad weather annoyances
powerful tycoons

trouble multiplies
filthy land based pollution
human garbage piles

dirty Chinese air
greenhouse emissions travel
across Pacific

screaming sick infants
cats fighting in the allies
dogs looking for fights

unhealthy disdain
pernicious urban status
no emission laws

behold no evil

No Evil by Maude McDonald ©

behold no evil

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

Four Brilliance Senryu


Four Brilliance Senryu

lunar brilliance
what is intemperate darkness
if not the flip side

dancing in color
fabrics shimmer and reflect
chromatic brilliance

brilliance of the grass
blades blaze in radiation
yellow as the sun

a sign from above
brilliance from the heavens
to light up our days

Angle Sky

Four Spirit Senryu

it’s not how you dress
recognize your inner self
push the envelope

souls that met by chance
kindred spirits tied by night
random encounters

body in stillness
hovering spirit above
constant loneliness

only knowing love
fasinating spirit guides
lead us through life

Three Flaring Haiku

F-22 Testing "Flares"

a flare
a perfect kiss
simple truth

harmony flares
dazzeling melody
flashy music

lights flaring
pots and pans tossed in air


Posted for on Sensational Haiku Wednesday part of You Know That Blog.

I usually don’t post a picture after the fact, but I found this one and just had to. A totally cool USAF picture after the flare test was executed. What remains seems to be an angel.
