Stressful argument

sign of insomnia

One doctor suggested walking when patient not able to sleep, so then body knows – it’s not bed time now. And besides, amount of sleep needed varies from body to body.

But just body knows: insomnia – a complaint of unsatisfactory…

Moon show

Long Nights Cold Moon shows
always the same shadow side
full face
down to Earth on the look-out
for falling stars

new day
december dreams of snow
hidden in the sky
air-stagnant, crow-silent -
how come, the winter missed us?

your pained face is looming

musical virus

In the book  “The seven planes of existence” Vianna Stibal talking about music, tones and numbers as universal language. When we are able to see music in everything – we can heal with tones, we can change the structure of things; change the vibrations of something that harmful, vibrations of disease…

egregious virus
fan of Johann Strauss' waltz
"Spring voices"

frayed thoughts-leaves
released hidden roots

wind's combing the trees
all dressed up - now bare,
old threads - swished

the beach

the beach
on the picture – you
from other side
it’s comfort
knowing you are safe
storm surfing wind
in our footprints
someone else’s riddle
searching for way out

come back to earth

leaves come back to earth -
more colors, more choices before
solitude of winter

last treat


I saw her wings
trembling impatiently
above the watermelon,
towering at the bright plate-
last treat before departure...

a dew ~ by magic xb dafp

loaded in a blue dew
filled the puddle

how many of us
with transient tickets

Under blanket of storm

Under blanket of storm
as an indolent voyager,
droplets mentoring tone,
"Marseillaise”, not a blues, -
it’s a fall, no burlesque -
ah, you right, -
I described it earlier:
introductory lesson of
haiku assertive,
discernment of life…

Mauvais tone of me moaning
at full moon liberation,
dance routine in plie -
language fails to support,
sailing ancient site
I rewrite consequences...
sudden visit of angel,
knight of sword, ace of wands…

hills of music
books have a new flavor
at the piano top

dream shows a shadow side
issues for everyday

as part of creative flow
from havoc

inside the margin
unpretentious narrative
a spy

fish & frogs of path

pierced ears
with wall clock


finding Nemo
at the laptop screen
fearless hat


a backward swim
second chance opportunity
with no commitment


stand your ground
on the path of transformation
fish to frog

a voice

…I threw it for later -
as a boomerang zoomed back
scratched the throat of vowel
scream screwed through
threaded it fell
shattered over blunted floor
that chromatic passage
entangling the emptiness
long golden lamp necks
blindly curious around
the hills of forgotten music…

empty shore...
they gather here
among the seagulls
wings tremble eagerly
of the forthcoming flight

full moon glimpse
in my house of three
Hermit’s light
found its need
stars wrapped in the earthy wounds
wait for healing rain

bridging unseen & unknown,
I merely lake your cracked thoughts,
through the heart chambers run
impatient vibes to splice parts
like ancient Inca have constructed
their close-fitted blocks of granite
without any mortar resilient against
the future earthquakes…

as moon grows larger ~ 'Heart Chalice' by Paul Jenkins

pouring into cups
my friend and I
connecting stream
I felt your mourning
awakened on other side
the sky –
cracking wacky clouds
as moon grows larger
what comes in your life
to create a shift
emptiness -
where the heart takes you
next step
a voice
let it sound
before you talk
Life is simple
just know what you love
enjoy it
every day
even in misery time
do it anyway

from the distance

the deer 
neighbors stare at you
from the distance

credulous hands

credulous hands
I open to greet
one with nature


indulged into warm smile

"One of the most important actions a reader takes is picturing the haiku images
 in his or her mind." [...]  ~ Jane Reichhold

one more cloud

on that day*
settled in the sky
one more cloud

how fast

a fly banged in my ear
how fast year's flown

inscrutable ways

inscrutable ways
sprouts mingling beneath surface
no guilt nor gift yet

a gaze

before the spring equinox;
the cold will last
only a night or two more

your gaze of resurrection
sustain the rising sun
