This Poet's Dream

These are the fluid lines that spill forth…

Haiku #122

The seas rise and churn
Washing away, burying
Mama ‘Aina

New Eyes

Heat grows

Churning with latent passion

A moment here

Then there

Cresting interest

Meeting in the most fleeting of glances

Stride noticed

Making waves with each step

Intrigue motioning forward

Conversation yet to come

Memories Serve Well

We spoke in riddles

Showing faces

Leading the chase

Making moves beyond self

Trusting too much

The fire residing within

No moment rivals

The time we collided

Crashing together

In waves and storms

Riding the flow

Like nothing mattered at all

Free to float

Disguised yet open

Faced with the reality

Existing between worlds

Making time irrelevant

Casting breath upon the glass

Etching heart songs

Turning the wheel of time

Haiku #121

Reggae music plays

Deep in the hills, surrounded

In a landlocked dream

Haiku #120

Mountain fog rolls deep

Stars faded, crickets singing

Night blooming silence

Haiku #119

We, like sun and moon

Chase over horizons, rest

Drawing close, but naught

Tonight

We are but a series of moments

Each encounter building or destroying

Growing or dying

Starting and ending

All at the exact same moment

We are the full total

Of each experience

Challenges and rewards

Defeats and triumphs

Now more than ever we must

MUST

Stand tall

Un-balling fists

And extending open hands

Danger is around

Every shadow shifts

Creating rifts

In the swirl of space between us

Haiku #118

Our words shine through Luna

Making waves in chest and belly

Open portals glow

Haiku #117

We exchange words here

Within the portal of light

In space still unknown

This Day and All The Rest

Yes, I hear you

I feel you

Everywhere

Every day

Maui weather rains upon me

Deep into the night

And all through the days

Thoughts still fill my heart and mind

With you

Of bliss

In connection

But there is still

A pain

A different space

One that changed me

And hurt me

Buried within the layers

Of the armour I have donned

I think of the places

Where your claws burned me 

Your pain 

Dug rough and dirty

Pressing hard into my being

My pain

A thousand shards

Cast upon us

In such a dark attempt to be free
