i seem
to remember
when i was a kid,
being in my
room

and

laying
on my belly
surrounded by
page after page
of white and
colored
paper.

and

each
of them
filled to the
edges, every
square inch
used up

and

how many
hours i spent
by myself,
so deep
in my

i m a g i n a t i o n

just

s c r i b b l i n g .

and it’s funny,
there was
never
the
fear of
failure then.

because there
was always
another
blank
page

and

if

i

filled up
all the
paper,

ooh!

that
empty wall…

then, not Now……Tanka

some music to read my first Tanka by.
it takes a few seconds to begin.

then, not Now

the night falls so short…
.
.
this day… it’s already known,
.
.
feel chills in my bones
.
.
before cold air cracks my skin.

Beast of Imagination,

.
.
.
.

why torture me so
.
.
with your images… of then?
.
.
why is it you tease
.
.
and taunt me with history?
.
.
and clothe me in colors

.
.
.

my eyes do not see?
.
.
i reach hard for… the Moment,
.
.
long for the Present
.
.
of the… what could be Now.
.
.
.

but.. this day…this day…knows then.

in black and white…Haiku

maybe i’m ‘old school’
or just an anomaly,
i have a soft spot

my knees go weak for,
black and white photography.
color spells it out,

but somethin’ about
using imagination
to fill in the blanks….

’cause i see green waves
in those endless summer eyes
my mind is drifting…

that white stretch of sand…
embracing warm on our skin…
watching the sun climb

up a cloudless sky…
whispers as you slept…are they
words i long to hear?

i had to listen,
so i eavesdropped while you dreamt.
now i’m wondering…

secretly yearning
when waves roll into night, will
you whisper again?

so i finally took the leap into the abyss, a poem in Haiku form.
a first attempt, a daydream, a reverie with special meaning to me.
the photo is a stock image i happen to like a lot.
