Sun Bathing (Raay)

Sprinkles of sunrays

graze the autumn trees,

Free are they to bathe

swathed in the sun’s maze.

Sun is Always Mightier Than Humans (Quintilla)

Heat fumes from the sun burning ground

zigzags as if lit on fire,

The burning sun cannot be bound

by its fiery inner fire,

Humans are the ones to be bound.

Forever Never Lasts (Pantun)

The sudden stillness of the trees

mark the abrupt halt of the breeze,

Wait not for your heartbeats to cease

and bring you down on bended knees.

Memories in Roses (Object Poem)

Nature’s caresses of love
make the rose blush
a pinkish hue,
Petals uncurl to let the
wind collect is scent
and carry it within its bosom
and sprinkle it
over lovers in love
as they hold onto
each other and lock
moments with each petal.
The rose may wither away
but the moments shared stay
safely stashed in their memories.

Living or Just Alive? (Naani)

Beating heart indicates life,

not living,

Experiences and moments

mark a life truly lived.

Lightness trumps Darkness (Musette)

Dark clouds
cover the sun
like shrouds

Sun fights
to break through with
its light

Behold!
Sunlight bores rays
of gold

Darkness
gives way to sun’s
brightness.

Seasons (Janaku)

Autumn
has come,
It’s time to fall,

Leaves
let go
of their home,

Naked
are branches,
leafless and still,

Till
Spring arrives
sprouting new buds,

Spring
is nature’s
answers to Fall.

Fall and Grow (Imayo)

The leaves never cease to fall,

Autumn is their call.

The leaves never cease to grow,

Spring is their new growth.

Life deals you highs and lows,

Learn to fall and grow.

Your falls are the autumn leaves,

Spring is your new growth.

New Start (Haiku)

Barren winter trees

stand leafless and ready to

burgeon once again.

Colours (Go Vat)

The morning sky is a bright blue

with sunrays giving spotlight hues

as the rising sun brings in dawn.

 

The evening sky is a dark brew

with the moon and the stars soon due

as the setting sun brings in dusk.
