To Show A True Face: Senryu

TO SHOW A TRUE FACE

May courage find me
Or at least a safe harbour
While I give the same

Epitaph

EPITAPH

Waste then no precious time
Worrying if your epitaph reads
Etched in gold on black marble

…….A LIFE IN RETROSPECT
A DISASTER FROM BEGINNING
………………TO END

For you have another ever in mind
You’ll take to the grave and beyond

…..WHEN YOU TAKE RISKS
…..THAT IS WHEN YOU FLY

Poet As In A Mirror: Tanka

POET AS IN A MIRROR

Inspire me please
Saying the unexpected
Revealing your deeps
Encouraged by your courage
To write something worth reading

Tentacle: Cinqku

TENTACLE

Doorbell
Standing here
Scared stiff for sure
Yet you plucked up courage
Hopeful

Petrified: Four By Six

PETRIFIED

Quivering on the brink
Too nervous to engage
Deep breath … Jump! Don’t you think
Time’s come to act our age?

Take Off

TAKE OFF

Taking off
Like a butterfly

Taking off
Like a startled starling

Taking off
A well known character

Taking off
Like a jet fighter

Taking off
A burdensome disguise

Taking off
A shirt, a skirt, our underclothing

Taking off
Into the unknown

Taking on now
Disguise in love with you

Undone

UNDONE

Taught are we to see
Hate love’s opposite
Intractable distraction

Love’s true opposite fear
Kindly includes an egress
Openness versus closure

Courage to say yes or no
Root planted deep within
Will bloom forth in truth

Bold

BOLD

Opening oneself
Gives more texture to the world
Turns heads and wins hearts

Secret Love

SECRET LOVE

Let us
Forever
Take care
What we reveal
Until
Breath held
We take the plunge

Jonah

JONAH

If you try to run off
Expect misadventures
Heed that still small voice
You have a job to do
