The April Heights - Day 30 - #142





Zest for life
living each day with gusto
To soon dead

****

A special friendship
adds zest to a boring day
Seeing you again

****


Zest of a lemon
makes a cool drink more pungent
Elixir of Life

As haiku poets
left to our own devices
we write more haiku

****


An ancient journey
fraught with dangers and delights
The grey geese return


****


Looking at albums
many pictures from the past
Loved ones departed

Speak with clarity
the words that are understood
Let those who will - know

****


He speaks to me with
gentleness and clarity
I listen with love


****


Clarity of sight
shows us earth's many wonders
Universal gifts

Temptation
wanting the wrong needs
satisfied

****

My first temptations
were for candy and ice cream
Quite different now

****


Sweet flowers blooming
my garden is delightful
temptation for bees

The April Heights - Day 26 - #138






A melody plays
sounds drifting on the water
evening at the lake

****


Our story plays out
a melody across time
Hope for the future

****


Melody
brings memories back
Old affair

Three Word Wednesday





Bloody indecent!!!
Your rude, kinky, actions here
shock the tender hearts

****


No bloody carcus,
a clean, almost tender, kill;
kinky bits removed

****


Lots of kinky leads
twisted around tender shoots
bloody coloured vine

Oh Kismet, I seek
to find you, the search is vain,
you are the constant


****


They are opposites
and a most unlikely pair
 it must be kismet


****


She turned left
and found him waiting
'twas kismet

In a state of bliss
she is counting her blessings
A child in her arms

****


Thoughts of the future
never swayed them from their goal
They followed their bliss

****


From the first moment
when you reached out for my hand
I felt only bliss


****

The April Heights - Day 23 - #135




Mesmerized by you
I want only to enchant
To give as received

****


Stars in the night sky
Mesmerize innocent eyes
Allowed after dark

****


She was lost at once
mesmerized by his sweet smile
Unconscious falling

****

Still you are away
As I wait and watch for you
even silence speaks

****


We found his old still
In a shed behind his house
making libations

****


In the still waters
I see reflections of you
Always clear to me


****

He'd prefer her slim
He'd prefer skirts and high heels
A renovation

****


White rabbits turn brown
See Nature's renovation
for summer safety

****



Now renovations
Time for pruning and cutting
Nothing stays the same

Beautiful bright blooms
honeybees in the garden
the scents of summer

I come to you
as bees to honey; you are
my sweet sustanence

Being me
a difficult prompt
no haiku

****



The last argument
filled with recriminations
crushed into being

****


My muse is asleep
being hopeless without him
I am passing by

The April Heights - Day 15 - #127





Alive with yearning
I endlessly visit you
Thoughts have no value

****



Your life counts
Find joy this moment
Be alive


****



A question for you
What things could you do without
and still be alive?

****

Surrounded by mist
breathing in the salt-fed air
aura of the cape

****


When I am with you
I'm captured by your aura
the essence of you


****


This old haunted house
holds an aura of regret
only I can see


****

Warmth felt through small things
Hot coffee, mulled wine, your smile
Life's simple pleasures


****


He begs for small change
Squatting in open spaces
Warmth only a dream


****


Huddled together
entwined bodies giving warmth
Spring is late this year

Perfect harmony
flowers, bees and nectar
coherent nature

***

Are you not confused?
Not one coherent thought here
political tripe

***


No coherent thoughts
now I am bereft of you
Every one escapes


"ellecee"

Three Word Wednesday



Draft, Locate, Serenity


I’m sitting here
drinking draft
It’s all I can afford
I’d rather have rum and coke,
dark and dirty.
Then I could really locate my
mysterious, mythical side
and retreat there
for a little artificial
serenity.

The April Heights - Day 11 - #123




Dreams we are holding
never telling anyone
this is possible


Many days of rain
no new growth is possible
the fields lie fallow



I will turn this way 
and he will surely follow
the possible path

The April Heights - Day10 - #122




The haze of summer
shimmering over the lake
Fish jump to the bait



Who will come first?
The influx of summer guests
The cabin awaits



Home grown strawberries
green tomatoes from the vine
Mid-summer feasting

The seashore
home of my childhood
far away


Gulls squabble for food
from the waves and the seashore
the ocean provides


Here on the seashore
childhood memories abound
sand and salt water

Life is very short
Think on this as a motto
Play now - Work later


Will you play with me?
Sing and dance to the old songs
Celebrate life now.



I long for music
this instrument that is me
Only you can play

(this Haiku form/ in respect to RS)



You took me away
from all that was dear to me
How can I forgive?

How can I forgive?
These actions were so painful
I cried a long time

I cried a long time
waiting for you to hear me
To come to my aid

To come to my aid
you forgave my ignorance
You took me away

Walk within your faith
Lay all that ails you aside
Hope for tomorrow




Revealed to me now
I lift the veil and see you
I hope to know you




You are my best hope
you hold me fast in rough seas
My anchor for life

The April Heights - Day 5 - #117




Waves on shore
imprints in  the sand
The tide turns



I watch them
caressing the shore
Ocean waves



I feel wave upon
wave pass through me, my terror
refusing to hide 



I see you
waving from the car
Gone again





'ellecee'

3 Word Wednesday





I am urged to growl
All the hype in media
Who can justify?



I growl at you now
all this hype over nothing
Justify yourself!!




Beautiful tulips
Nature's hype for Spring time
Justifiable

The April Heights - Day 4 - #116



You doubt me
no words of remorse
Game over



You said you still care
You even said I'm sorry
I doubt that you are




Many times
I called your name
Doubt returns



Spring follows Winter
The seasons will continue
Never doubt Nature

circle of delight
within your loving embrace
safe harbor for me




the shore lights beckon
harbor water smooth as glass
I sail home again

This old house of ours
emptied of all memories
Deserted at last



The calm before storms
All the birds have deserted
Silence in the wood
