3 Haikus – Asleep



My beloved sleeps.
I lay down beside; she stirs
a sigh of relief

My beloved knows.
All storms aside, this is home.
Her core’s love for me.

How she responds to
your coming while fast asleep,
her core visage peers.

Seven Haikus for my Wife

White Licking Flames

 

Where we’ve been; when we met.

 

High, wide, deep faulter.

For love is within, from One.

Agape, forged strong.

 

No sun. No moon. Pain –

fans the flames of your heart’s forge.

Dark flames fueled by dust.

 

The dust turns mad; A

surge of madness fuels dark flames,

rotting my heart’s flesh

 

Ignorance was light;

But the Anesthesia of

Denial – is gone.

 

Numbs our hearts no more.

Our minds race, hearts infected,

roasting on dark flames.

 

We get up, move on.

Unrequited love shadows

the aligning stars.

 

As a thief love came,

requited mind-hearts ablaze;

White flames lick ours both.

“Emergence” and “Nature’s Word”

“Emergence”

Science seeks life’s roots

Recreated in the lab

Life’s language made flesh

-theothersid3

“Nature’s Word”

Though we discover

Nature’s mechanics of how

We’re deaf to its Word
