A remembrance from the past

statue made of stone symbolizing

her face coupled in her hands and

bound by the serpent’s strength

that she not be remembered for

the Warrior Spirit she once was

instead a faceless, void spirit that

he wants forgotten by all

but to the serpents dismay

she lives on through each

generation of Warrior Women Survivors

and she is seen and remembered

by all who encounter us…

enemy attempts

to destroy the survivors

but we are too strong

Summer Waves – Haibun

Written In Response To:

Frank J. Tassone Haikai Challenge (6/8/19):  fragrant breeze (kunpuu) – This week, write the haikai poem of your choice (haiku, senryu, haibun, tanka, haiga, renga, etc.) that alludes to a fragrant breeze (kunpuu). And even though it has already passed, you may also allude to the 75th D-Day Anniversary.

Spring path.

Oftentimes we have summer in our soul and at other times we do not depending on our “spiritual seasons.”  And for some depending on where they live they get to enjoy a whole entire season of summer outside. But for some of us who live in a different type of area, even though the season is called “summer” the weather contradicts the definition of that word.  Then when there is an actual summer day, warm with calm winds, because of trials inside it is the dead of Winter. But the good news is if the soul clings tight to Hope’s surfboard and breathes the waves will hush because it embraced the dark shadow, redeemed it and so becomes whole to once again have summer in the soul…which is the good that always comes from each and every season embraced.

riding the season

whether inside or outside

fragrant breeze kissed
