rosy_sunsetRuby red sunset time / forget I’m a pirate dog / break sail, span the sea
July 14 from Twitter –
Soft pink steel-tinged gray / jet planes fly to the world’s edge / sunset horizon
July 13 from Twitter –
Crimson peach sunset / night time kisses chase the clouds / my heart skips a beat
July 13 from Twitter –
Salmon clouds breaking / before the night claims the skies / sunset paradise
July 12 from Twitter –
If my landlord saw / the lovely sunset views, here / he’d put the rent up
July 6 from Twitter –
Sunset garden views / golden twilighted moments / and no extra charge
July 6 from Twitter –
Icy steel blue skies / night time invades our heavens / gray sunset fighting
June 25 from Twitter –
Smoke on the water / there is a fire in the sky / sunset in Tehran
June 15 from Twitter –
Velvet, orange, pink / light fades from your closing eyes / sunset of my life
May 20 from Twitter –
Daylight scatters now / rosy pink and apricot / your sunset kisses

Haiku for Lovers

Posted in Haiku, Haiku - Lovers by twitery on July 21, 2009
Shadows creep around / the pathways of my dreaming / dim, misty and veiled ///
I’m filled with your light / from a thousand miles distance / lantern of my love ///
Whispering your name / over and over again / starlight on the breeze ///
Darkness no longer / holds a menacing promise / only certainty ///
Stronger now I be / a bright path forward, I see / obstacles are none ///
Pain flaking away / bright and shiny far below / scarred by character ///
Breathing quite slowly / breath sails across the water / from me into you ///
You are no stranger / bound by the light within us / twins of a far sun ///
The slow growth of trees / in a circular motion / reaching for heaven ///
Árboles crecen / movimiento circular / siempre hacia el cielo /// ( @angeldominguez )
Stones worn smoothly, by / the winds of time and sunshine / smile in reflection ///
Pressed grapes and olives / nectar of the deities / nourish and sustain ///
Days without ending / fair weather or hurricane / held in your embrace ///
Shadows shift away / past memories forgotten / a potent spectrum /
Tuscan terrazzo / tessellated terraces / tutto il tempo ///
