Orchestrated Flowers

Author's Notes/Comments: 

This is just another of my haiku practice poems that I've decided to compose one time.  The theme could be as clear as day & has an equally clear metaphor if not in your face, crystal clear allusion to social realities (or, at least, the conscious thought of it).  The simple goal was to enrich my poetic know-how in terms of understanding both the deep and surface aspects of language & meaning (in light of some of Chomsky's take on Linguistics vs. other theories of language).  The English words could involve various elements/parts from my general use and those might include the semantic & semiotic relationships.  Simplistic and shallow as it may seem, with my learning objectives in mind, to capture the real essence of a haiku (while I'm on this undertaking) could be deemed worthwhile even though I pretty much have believed beforehand that I have not even gotten closer to my goals, as far as how the Japanese poets have done their haikus is concerned (the original Japanese approach to poetry).  The reason, I have always believed it to be, was about my turn of mind (as compared to theirs, the very Japanese people/poets/artists)..or other influential factors within one's own mental environment.  Thank you for looking on!

Another Game of Manipulation

Author's Notes/Comments: 

My sister is in an abusive relationship, with her boyfriend of four years. A man who I never particularly liked to begin with, he's a high school drop out and before she made him get a job he was out of work for two years.


 She swears that he's changed, but I think that she's lying for him just like she did before everyone found anything out. I think that things only repeat themselves, and I pray for the day that she breaks his little heart.

Do you think I covered all the bases without making it something it is not? LOL What is lust to you? That is what matters, if you ask me.
