Poems On Blue (Imperfect Haikus)


Martyr

A martyr of the soil
Entombed in narcissism
Feeding on cyanide


Fading

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

    It may be an imperfect haiku but it has a spellbounding imagery

    A martyr of the soil
    Entombed in narcissism
    Feeding on cyanide

A boundary between the things misnamed
Death and existence: Sleep hath its own world,
And a wide realm of wild reality,
