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
May 4 from Twitter –

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 ///

Michael – a Candle in the Wind

Posted in Haiku Jackson by twitery on July 2, 2009
Some MJ snippets to the tune of Candle in the wind #michu
You lived your life, like an albino child / your hair blazing in the wind / never knowing which way to turn to / when the fame came /
I would not want to know you / or have you for a friend / or leave you with my children / not with your dancing hands /
and if you had some talent or a great device / you had it in your feet / not in your other vice /
and if it’s true, your stomach / was filled with melting pills / I’m sure there are other ways for you to get your thrills /
So, beat it, beat it / Michael Jackson, I heard you beat it /
You were a monster, I’m sorry it’s true, just leave those kids and beat it, yeah beat it /
You lived your life in some paradise, that no one else would dream / you, your chimpanzee and all those children /
Bizarre and wild that you stayed alive/ you were so good in the Jackson Five/ Now your hair’s still burning like a candle in the wind
No I would not want to know you or your monkey friend / I’m really sad to hear, that you met with this sad end / so beat it , beat it

mjPEPSIYou lived your life,
like an albino child
your hair blazing
in the wind
never knowing which
way to turn to
when the fame came

I would not want
to know you
or have you for a friend
or leave you with
my children
not with your
dancing hands

and if you had some talent
or a great device
you had it in your feet
not in your other vice

and if it’s true, your stomach
was filled with melting pills
I’m sure there were other ways
for you to get your thrills

So, beat it, beat it
Michael Jackson,
I heard you beat it

You were a monster,
I’m sorry it’s true,
just leave those kids and
beat it, yeah beat it

You lived your life in some paradise,
that no one else would dream
you, your chimpanzee
and all those children

Bizarre and wild that you stayed alive
you were so good in the Jackson Five
Now your hair’s still burning
like a candle in the wind

No I would not want to know you
or your monkey friend
I’m really sad to hear, that
you met with this sad end
so beat it , beat it
