Carpe Diem Special #196 Hamish Gunn’s 2nd “on the street corner”

solitude

unwelcome advance ironic

still alone

~

a child sings

notes of melancholy

will the door open

~

I watched life

acting out, shedding values

damn it was fun

~

too late frantic

realizations of passion

kids will still cry

~

lamppost chatter

a warm summer evening

cold hearts

~

I wish to breathe

if might love be found

I wish to breathe

~

Carpe Diem Special #195 Hamish Managua Gunn’s first “full snow moon”

walk midnight moon

illuminate snow white mood

angelic flakes dance

~

what winter wants

a storm a violent thrust

climactic layers

~

spread across well lit

skies a cold moon regrets

peaceful white solace

~

Favor Today – Carpe Diem #910 Bitterness/Sour

favor love today

spiritual reckoning

soft heart Grace seek

~

we are a prison

locked inside our fantasy

bitter reminder

~

like a winter peace

we do when love does cry

know no sour taste

~

examine labors

delicious wise fruition

express love alive

~

Slight Night – Carpe Diem #190 – Special

Carpe Diem Special #190

~

I could if right

eyes glance inside sky

long winding night

~

that hurt we know

while evening stars shine

fallen away glow

~

we could do this

always together alone

secure stars soul

~

still a waking hour

waits to suggest a circle

again seeks night sky

Carpe Diem #891 Joy of Living

We would choose ice

floes slap seal where currents

run strong summer

~

a ski swift we

fall forever snow icy depths

then Joan Baez sings

~

cabin warmth snow cling

melts in shadowed wintertime view

beautiful

~

fresh air freeze

sillhouettes in our travel

on nature’s ice

~

we would warm

sweet breeze of arctic air

our lives alive again

Searching Haiku

Seventeen years old

frightened, confused, still alone

I wonder how long

~

when age begins to

speak vulnerability

eyes remain closed

~

recall philosophy

speaks of learning moments

we all begin today

~

once when I knew

who we became on that day

the bark peeled away

~

loose branches trip fall

the weight of our lives sway

within river’s crest

~

I stand alone with

only a memory without why

still seventeen today.
