Poems On Blue (Imperfect Haikus)


A martyr of the soil
Entombed in narcissism
Feeding on cyanide


Like a lone flower
Wilting to the sun
Embracing the blues

Symphony of Umbrellas

On the ocean front
Umbrellas hovering in the wind
Love is in the air

Transparent Desire

Saturated yearning
Gazing at a turquoise baby doll
Dancing pupils

The Union

The azure sky and the cyan ocean
Merging at the horizon
Marriage of heaven and earth

A Flower's Dance

Floating in the wind
Is a single turquoise flower
Rhapsody in blue
