The Daily Haiku

A world of five - seven - five. At one time daily, now kind of sporadic.

Current theme: Zombie Attack!

A cold crescent moon
Saturn sits trine to Pluto
and square to Mars

Graven earth disturbs
As icy hands reach upward
Grasping at the sky

Low gutteral moan
The dead rise against their will
Compelled by shadows

The warmth beckons them
As they shamble towards the town
Hunger to live again

Current theme: Party!

A weekend party
A last 'hurrah' for Summer
Baking in the Sun!

Excellent flavor
Smooth, refreshing, not bitter
Tasty, tasty tea!

Current theme: Burning Sun

Collapse and burn more
Elements until iron
Becomes the last fuel

Then the death cycle
Of a dying star begins
Expel corona

Star expands, contracts
Planetary nebula
Forms from the gasses

Current theme: Burning Sun

Fueled of hydrogen
Collapse then burn helium
As the star ages

Current theme: Chinese Painting

Signed up for a class
Must learn the two different styles
Southern and Northern

The loose Southern style
A free-hand method that paints

Focused Northern style
Meticulous and detailed
Structure of beauty

Current theme: Vanilla

Just a simple dish
A vanilla ice cream cone
On a toasty day

Current theme: In The Park

Sun shines through the trees
Storms are coming but not yet
Still have time to hike

Current theme: In The Park

Neshaminy runs
Flowing under the Causeway
Waterfall up-stream

Current theme: In The Park

Walking along trails
A yellow feather greets me
Lying on the ground

Sunflower yellow
Strange color for the woods
What bird left this here?

Current theme: Prose Sunday


Sometimes I can see patterns in the sound
A strange vestige, these undercurrents of reality
Maybe it's my own form of madness, encompassing
Maybe it's a call from the great below
Maybe it's the aether that snakes through us all
Permeating our lives so we're all intertwined
And I reach a pinnacle of manic reaction

It's so difficult to express what I see
It burns in my heart for fathomless aeons
Such intensity can be terrifying to behold
And I try to hide it within umbral spheres
But it leeches out of the depths of me
Liquid fire that threatens humanist mentality
It becomes the nadir of every reaction

I feel so alien in what I experience
I try to function in this strange synchronicity
But I tend to feel like I'm walking outside the coil
On the outside and looking in, beyond the veil
And as my heart trembles from this cause and effect
I know that these reactionary movements
Are building more walls, not clearing pathways
This life is just reactionary
I want it to be revolutionary

Current theme: Bad About Updating

Sometimes the words stall
The inspiration fails me
Days without updates :(

Current theme: Colors

Colors within a prism
All becomes white light
