songbird

A poem written as 4 continuous Haikus..

clipped winged captive sings
Immaculate inferno
of warm melodies.

 

symphonies swell like
ripened fruit and vocals rise
and crash, rhythmic waves

 

sending salty sprays
of harmonious lyrics
seaside soprano

 

echoes of peaceful
pandemonium pan the
sonorous skyline.

Mangled Mirror

A poem written as 3 continuous Haikus..

Wade ‘gainst wrathful waves

manifesting the moon like

a murky mirror

 

From purple plumed clouds

the turbulent thunderbolts

lash like a toad’s tongue

 

Eerie echoes of

effervescent emotions

Through a looking glass

5|7|5 Haiku

Bald Eagle

A poem written as two continuous Haikus..

clenched elfin fingers 

Submerged under crimson pools

And ravaged rubble  

 

blitz the blameless as

diplomats defend discreet

drones: democracy

5^7^5 Haiku

-Raxtus.

A piece on the American Drone strikes that continue to massacre innocents and how they have kept defending their bike actions

After Valentine’s

A poem written as 3 haikus..

Flowers once cherished

wilt away and chocolates

soft and sticky sweet

 

Beloveds barter

beautiful cards only to

dump them disregard.

 

Bowtied presents are mere

momentos of when pain felt

Peculiarly pleasant

5|7|5 Haiku

-Raxtus

This poem tried to recreate events post Valentine’s Day and imagines what would occur on the 15th of February in the hearts 💔 of many.

Enjoy..
