Haiku Heights – Red

pink roses

I saw blood, soaked, rags

flint made, exploding anger

Couple burst in flames.

The last page written

in smudged charcoal,¬† painter’s ink

news, her last good-bye.

***

Into the dark night

a bird whistle blows softly

Red and black beak cry.

***

A blush of pink rose

Happy Valentine’s Day, love

Just let me whisper.

Haiku Heights – Lullabye

Baby

Something must  stop me

From worrying and crying

Darkness, a sad song

*******************************************************************************

Many years ago

I would sing to my children

To soothe them at night

*******************************************************************************

Soft lush tones whispered

Sometimes we are all children

Happy for a lie

********************************************************************************

My mom sang to me

In a soft foreign language

My eyes fluttered shut
