This Poet's Dream

These are the fluid lines that spill forth…

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 #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

Haiku #116

Another portal

Opening this night, space grows

Stargate awakens

Haiku #115

Streets are barren now

The fold of time envelopes

Irises return

Eternity Is Too Long

I will keep sharing my story

One of betrayal

Lies

Selfish vices

Rising tides

And skidding to a halt

On salty slopes

The force of impact

Too great to withstand

I am ravenous for the truth

Yet you only shove 

Tiny bites into my mouth

Casually crushing my heart

Every time you speak

Or reach 

Or breathe in my direction

I find tears in my eyes

And I tear at my covers 

Self divided no more

One At A Time

Days and nights and days

Continue to pass

Filling the calendar with marks

Falling short of the past 

Yet open

Free to form

Unwilling to yield to wanton desires

Held through clenched jaw 

Lost among the eaves of the Lanai

Standing atop the mountain now

Volcanic rock spewing 

Lost in the world

So dreary inside

Unable to be alone with thoughts

Strewn across the elements of time

Today Is Not Yesterday

Love will forever be sad

Falling into tears 

Tearing at the seams 

My frayed soul

Bested by trickery

Left not at any alter

But the edge of a crag

Latent with lava

Ready to melt me

I go into the crater 

Willing myself 

Through the fire

For one final transformation
