Haiku 7/3/09 – Midnight

Night’s song has lulled all

Life’s become a still photo

I, the sole viewer

    Battling with brushes
    weathered coat of paint creaks out
    defiance of change

  2. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    defiance of change
    manifested clearly in
    the bigot’s keen mien

  3. how mean the mien
    of a pond turned green
    I want to swim

  4. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    but i want to swim
    in spite of the grim coldness
    of your negation

  5. of your negation
    i will survive and take
    my new flower and wines

  6. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    new flower and wines
    assume a different form
    in the hands of fakes

  7. avatar darkdatu says:

    the hands of a fake
    are only open to take
    stir but do not shake

  8. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    stir but do not shake
    lest you spoil the residue
    I’m saving for you

  9. saving for you
    to offer a better future
    with love and harmony

  10. love and harmony
    earth, water, air, sun, and tree
    God, creation, choice, me

  11. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    God chose you and me
    to fulfill the progeny
    of helicopters

  12. helicopter fleet
    assumes mid-air position
    target: bright flowers!

  13. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    target bright flowers
    is the ill intent of sick
    sadists who hate girls

  14. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    like coronaries
    clogged up by neglect of years
    esteros now burst

  15. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    esteros now burst
    riddled with stubborn dwellers
    who blame rescuers

  16. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    undaunted rescuers
    play tug of war with the flood
    to retrieve victims

  17. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    ro relieve victims
    donations came flooding in
    prayers also helped

  18. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    hands held in prayer
    separate as butterflies
    rise up together

  19. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    rise up together
    an effort in selfishness
    does not help any

  20. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    These unhelpful clouds.
    Cumulus. I need nimbus.
    I’m raining inside.

  21. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    I’m raining inside
    your indifference shrouding
    me in unshed tears

  22. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    Clouds hold unshed tears.
    I glance. I shiver. I fear.
    The typhoon is here.

  23. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    the typhoon is here
    and many are panicking
    to prepare for it

  24. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    morning sky preparing
    tucking the night in ribbons
    indigo wrapped in gold

  25. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    indigo and gold
    mix with the obsidian god
    in mutual orgy

  26. in mutual orgy
    wind and rain tossed the ocean
    and slapped the bay

  27. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    the slap held at bay
    hurt more than the threat it held
    deepening each day

  28. deepening each day
    species’ apocalypse
    as men desecrate its way

  29. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    desecrate the way
    is the cynic’s true protest
    to protect his faith

  30. to protect his faith
    one should practice what he preach
    not mere fanatic

  31. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    not a fanatic
    he merely maintained his mien
    decent not frrantic

  32. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    Frantic bees scamper
    in haste to find petal lips-
    a valentine’s kiss.

  33. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    a valentine’s kiss
    was worth every pain and stress
    it took to impress

  34. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    impression of sun
    mangoes ripe glow from branches
    covered by green clouds

  35. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    covered by green clouds
    the rainbow refuses to
    be decimated

  36. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    decimated trees
    leaves scattered, brown-green fragments
    summer’s explosion

  37. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    summer’s explosion
    even before its time came
    harbinger of doom

  38. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    harbinger of doom
    bloom that cuts even water
    rising crimson tide

  39. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    rising crimson tide
    devours all things in its wake
    most mercilessly

  40. avatar Erwin Fernandez says:

    Merciless tempest
    whirls a dance of rusted knives
    eye of Saturn bleeds

  41. avatar Abraham de la Torre says:

    eye of Saturn bleeds
    the devil does not deem right
    to send a rain check
