Eyes (6 Imperfect Haiku Poems)


Enwrapped

Two converging eye lids
Enclosing the pupa
Cocooned


The Tropics

Seeping from the sockets
Are tears saturated in mirth
A monsoonal gusher


Love Fool

Slave to aesthetic beauty
Wooed by the extravagance of color
Yet blinded by love


Day and Night

Mercurial force
A blend of light and darkness
Circadian clock


Pigmentation

Hazel irises
On an ivory backdrop
Infinite amber


Shaded Beauty

Titanium frames
On a deep blue horizon
Stealing beauty

Poem of the Day

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
