Baccarat Rose

breeze of roses

fills the dark sultry night

Champagne bliss

twirling all night

with new lover boy

roses in her hair

3

woo me with roses

and flutes of Dom Pérignon

I’m yours forever

Gods of War

blood red, crimson red

rivulets in wanton spree

feeding gods of war

gods deaf to ululations 

 spawned from unholy darkness

Haiku Horizons: Cut

, , , , , , ,

Done for Haiku Horizons. Today, my haiku is about the pain I’m having in my heart, a physical one as I saw videos of the horrors going on in Iraq. Please if you have the time, visit Lotenna Blog. Kindly note that the pictures are disturbing, to say the least.

cutting, lingering

ache sits on my heart, I bleed.

oh ISIS, what next!

golden rays shimmer

on swaying dew-kissed leaves

a blooming mirage

morning sun

peeks through cloudy sky

rays of hope

morning walk

suns glitters on my path

sprightly steps

clear and endless skies

bathe these teasels  in hush light

proclaiming majestic shoot

of a bountiful summer
