    falling from my eyes
    love's riches that you taught me
    in a life that died
    "It is not the rich man you should properly call happy, but him who knows with wisdom how to use the blessings of the gods, to endure hard poverty, and who fears dishonor worse than death, and is not afraid to die for cherished friends or fatherland."

    in a life that died
    Long before its time had come
    Laughter is all gone
    It is not too late, to be wild for roundabouts - to be wild for life
    Wolfsheim - It is not too late

    only my girl knew!
    sadness as vast as ocean

    there had been a major electricity breakdown since yesterday.
    When I booted up my puter the old page showed up and hence the haiku.

    thanks for your appreciation.

    Laughter is all gone
    the rose is left to wilt in

    electrifying storms sprung
    I'm under my bed!

    "But do you really, seriously, Major Scobie," Dr. Sykes asked, "believe in hell?"
    "Oh, yes, I do."
    "In flames and torment?"
    "Perhaps not quite that. They tell us it may be a permanent sense of loss."
    "That sort of hell wouldn't worry me," Fellowes said.
    "Perhaps you've never lost anything of importance," Scobie said.

    I'm under my bed
    Afraid to come out and see
    What's waiting for me...
    Les Miserables,
    Volume 1, Fifth Book, Chapter 3
    Remember this, my friends: there are no such things as bad plants or bad men. There are only bad cultivators.

    up my heart for you?
    down my hopes of love with him?
    Which way did I fall?

    Which way did I fall?
    I dreamed of picking apples
    in my grandma's tree.
    "Iíve tasted all the sweetest creams
    and danced with daisies in dazed delight;
    sunny skies pervade my dreams
    and light the dark of earthly scenes..."

    In my grandma's tree
    is an old wooden birdhouse.
    Guess what bird flew in!

    mocking birds aren't what I need
    for this wooden heart

    for this wooden heart
    termite kisses, lichened sheets,
    you have me pining.

    you have me pining-
    insects caught in amber tears
    small snapshots of time
