My heart grows fonder
As each day passes us by
With you there, me here

There is a shadow
Upon my aching body
Where you once held me

Off to war you went
Idealist through and through
When will you return?

This is for Sensational Haiku Wednesdays

Find a quiet place
Close eyes, relax, wait for peace
Instead: “Mama!”... Sigh…

Gold Coast

Beguiling, baby-faced boys
boasting beautiful butts
skin smooth as silk
sensual, sexy smiles
awesome abs.
Arrogant, awkward.
Prancing, preening, posing,
pole dancing.

This is a Sunday 160 for Monkey Man

Just a Moment

I’d been watching him for a few minutes before he noticed me.  He looked up as he passed and our eyes met.  We both smiled, cautiously but genuinely, before he was swept away by the crowd.  The subway doors closed, the train lurched forward and I revelled in the lingering happiness of a shared moment.

Once upon a time
There was love neverending
Or so we believed


What lies beneath
Is a treasure trove
May I bequeath
What my pure heart wove

Urge forth by might
Discover my soul
Immersed in light
I am truly whole

Winds of Change

Finally, the change she’d been hoping for arrived.  After months of waiting, she felt the temperature drop and the moisture in the air.  She saw the rain falling in the distance and hoped that the winds would bring it here; that this hope she now saw in front of her would not pass her by.

Doing what you do
Like nobody on this earth
Better than your dreams
