the poet and his doubts


a scathing review
should not cast you in a trance
tho your blood cries out

are you stuck with words?
then string them around your neck
they will set you free

whatever they say
remember Kipling's advice
about self-control

a drop of honey
a taste of eternity
wrapped in syllables

thanks to the haiku
you can recreate the world
or leave not a trace

before man could speak
he knew poetry
by intuition

foreign relations
is the language one uses
when love has no place

like ships in the night
like clouds shredding in the blue
like your closing heart

the boat is sinking
but who thinks of the havoc
wrought in the ocean

travel to the stars
with your bag of memories
and earth's illusions

in desperation
let dreams carry you away
they'll color your pain

The Crowded World of Solitude, volume 2

I just stumbled onto your poetry. I have only been here since last June and I never read any of your work. I truly admire your professionalism and wonderful words. This poem is very touching and I truly relate to it.
Much peace, love, and light,

For whatever reason haikus usually seem awkward to me, not that my writing isn't, but these are very good. Thank you for an eye opening.

Ummmmmmmm… “travel to the stars/ with your bag of memories/ and earth’s illusions” I suppose that is what we do! and if we could turn it around and bring the star’s illusions to Earth? and if we make the puzzle with memories and then forget them?! May be we could let us carry the dreams and color happiness!!! :) Just playing! I love it! angi
