A Thought for Every Word

Final Curtain ~ Haiku

whispered final words

unkempt sorrowful faces

angel cries out loud

As Time Moves ~ Haiku

dreaming of spent youth

old photos cry disbelief

paper thin recall

Top of the Ladder ~ Haiku

empty nest at last

remembered tearful goodbyes

life begins again

New Spring ~ Haiku

children come and smile

a parent’s gentle comfort

middle age beckons

The Grave

Youth spent full
hard with force,
grasping greedily
awakes a beast

Gravity feeds the body
sips and bites,
slowly over time
becoming a feast

Ravenous feeder
drinking heavily,
coveting more openly
shyness ceased

Dirt patches of
sun-washed leather,
burrowed deep to
watch death released
