Tags

, , ,

I can’t imagine the last time I participated in the Carpe Diem Haiku Challenge. but today, I have been drawn to the blog of Kristjaan, the wonderful host, in celebration of the 8th Anniversary of the Challenge, this October 2020. I have truly missed reading Kristjaan’s works and that of the all the haijin. 🙂 I hope my offering captures today’s theme . 🙂

October

celebrating October

fickle showers give way

to sunshine in splendour

I grasp at gossamer wings

Sleep No More – For Barbara

Sleep No More

flimsy wind

your candle glows to dim

on the whimsical threshold

of  love…

the darkest side

2

on leafy green parchment

your story unfolds, glittering

to conclude

on a bare earth

one with the dust

not even ashes

grey as death

can seal the gaping holes

of your bullet riddled  body

ash to ash

dust to dust

3

sleep no more

the hand that sheds

innocent blood

the blood you took

from her virginity

sinking your fangs in

to draw life

her essence

to feed your misplaced basest instincts

on the altar of her love

you desecrate

with booms of your gun

a soul is snuffed

hers…

kill and thou shall be killed

sleep no more

Rest in Perfect Peace, Barbara Tommie

Dancing Angels

velvet night

how loud my praise

in tones of silence

carried across the heavens

dancing angels
