Haiku for John

Mom waters your grave
plants and flowers with her tears;
such a sad image!

Your short life appears
like a flickering movie
in my minds eye screen.

Did i hear your voice
in the recess of my mind?
Perhaps, just a wish.

I look up and see
white elephants in the clouds
just as you did, son.

Has it been a year
or the same day repeated
over and over?

Purple morning haze
changing to red and yellow;
a new day begins

A new day begins
but you are not here with us -
purple mourning haze

Purple morning haze
then yellow with three red stripes,
your colors and flag

Your colors and flag
become dawn of a new day;
what will sunset bring?

Ode (Haiku) to Chronic Pain -

for many others and self included.

Tenth hour, pain bringer,

Intense, shooting, screams again,

When will it subside?

Real living cut short,

Our laughter no longer heard,

Unbearable truth told.

Choices fewer yet,

Necessity brings white death,

Swallow days relief.

Will the cycle end,

Or forever be destine,

Swallow nights' relief.

Day slips into night,

When demons play evil games,

Moon's glow fades to light.

Unbearable truth told,

Intense, shooting, screams again,

When will it subside?

-Al
