Cherish…

September 19, 2010 13 comments

Watching peaceful sleep;

No better place in the world

then here by your side.

******

Blissful ignorance;

My time spent now gone, wasted

with my selfish pride.

******

Cherish all you have;

Alone again, a lifetime

is a big number.

For todays Poetry Pantry I tried to write a love poem. Instead, I ended up with a semi love poem that ends painful. Don’t ask me why, love poetry is my Achilles’ heel. Hope everyone enjoys!

One misty morning

rain fell upon calming waters;

Eagle’s flew freely.

Haiku to save the world…

August 19, 2010 20 comments

poverty speaks
whispering pain so softly;
will you hear it?

war squanders life
kills away for lavish gains;
do you see it?

blood shed in vain
poured from nearly empty glass;
can you taste it?

polluted skies
pink sunsets sink lonely hearts;
do you smell it?

ravaged earth
awaiting peace, prosperity;
will you help Her?

(c) 2010 by D. Wright

I decided today to try my hand at writing haiku and this is the result of my efforts. Not sure if it is by the book haiku, but it’s close enough for me! Hope you all enjoy!
