August Senryū ~ 2012

August Senryū

once in a blue moon | moon grows so round she falls | kisses the earth hard 

once in a blue moon | people see their reflection | in watery eyes 

once in a blue moon | those we love are far from home | they feel us with them 

once in a blue moon | we write about love | from the depths of our true hearts 

stay grounded to earth | envisioning beauty | then learn to walk right 

we hear the rabbits | call from the fields harvest | eating green lettuce 

the buttery moon | swells to the size of summer | pregnant with plenty 

green corn moon | maiden of new harvest | calls to the autumn 

spears and arrows | some cut with precision | others with beauty 

the depths of zero | call from the throats of flowers | from were all things bloom 

love is a salve | it heals wounds deeper than canyons | smooths jagged edges  

there's no scarcity of love | its renewable | why then jealousy 

remembering | one of the best days of life | you being born ♥ 

sacred places | cathedrals marking home lands | birthed by mother earth 

inundated | in a sea of paperwork | she floats to the top 

miracles happen | believe it and you'll see | your life's the beginning 

lives rearranged | estrangement at close distance | still linked at the heart 

Purple on turquoise | yoga mat a great place | to sing with a cicada 

a morning without | sunshine and rain's false promise | envelops the day 

an immense boulder | grief overshadows the light | blame a losing game 

we will continue | to be 'other' and proudly | we know our worth 

know silence | retreat into its depths | listen 

mind realignment | ability to see | beyond the edges 

fruits of summer bloom | a harvest of gold goodness | jewels in my bowl 

a night to reclaim | streets from police the hoodlums | abstract differences 

a dart to the heart | stark its poison entering | shadows of sorrow 

a child inside | an adult's body sometimes | cries for affection 

the worst sorcery | jealousy and envy | followed by gossip 

lilly sword beauty | emblem in a life of strife | until victory 

mandala moon | time when all things may ripen | rising from the mist 

gone home to the light | brilliant and shiny at birth | journey worth taking
