Senryu Thirty One

Tell me why you cry
Let me help you touch the sky
Jump from your aerie, fly

Senryu Thirty

Near her time stood still
The wind fell short at her feet
As did my faint words

Come back and sit with me
Under this pretty tree
We can talk and feel free
Or just sit and just be

What is Faith?

Releasing fear is the key for what we seek
Especially true for the shy and the meek
For everything we could possibly need
Evidence is shown in part by what we heed

Love’s Spark

As she sheds the layers of her heart

Laying aside fear finding love’s start

Slicing away to find the spark

Lighting the path out of the dark

Pushed to the brink of dire hostility
Rage only one syllable’s ability
Fearful of this man’s capability
And the future of your futility

Say What?

To learn of new words guess new thoughts to wrought
Strange as it does seem some think they are haught
What good is it said what’s upon my mind?
It’s been said before as it were opined
