Lost In The Labyrinths Of Your Metaphors Brother Mike

the sound of your poetry is just perfect,
in fact more than perfect, it has the tongue of the witch in mindanao
with the lenght covering the distance between the roof and the floor
and it knows well how to tickle
the numbness of nerves in my mind
it knows how to deal with words, it is bilingual, it is piercing
it creates the labyrinths of mystery
and marvel and wonder and amazement
it know where to start
from the very ordinary handle of a kettle
to the face of the laddle to the the tails and ways of those grinning cats
looking for love on the roof that night
it has a way of making the ash so significant
from ordinariness
to the metaphysical
from the usual hello to the
surprising goodbye

giving life from the fire that i have long forgotten
it is perfect, more than perfect
i am amazed
there are more meanings that i can attach too
under my skin
and then i am lost

to be candid, after reading them, i have convinced myself
yes i like it
not the tongue, but the words shaped by the tongue
but i cannot really remember what was said
i have not understood what you pointed out with your hand

forgive me
but i am going to the next page
the one that speaks about love to the heart
without so much sophistication
the one that simply says: i like you let us talk.

Lots Of Air In Here

got migraine
and tired of my doctor's prescriptions
which after all
lead to more complications
i decided to see my
quack doctor in the mountains
nearby
got inside his cave and
he chanted to the gods
of the trees
and the grasses
to the nymphs and elves
and dwarfs
to the gods of the underworld
and he came out with
an answer

'dear sir, you got lots of air
in your brain! '

o? i got brain.
My consolation.

Lots Of Love

lots of love out there
buy one take one
if you want to buy
even all of them

but priceless love
knows no price
it takes sacrifice

a love freely given
is the only true love
we can have and
cherish and keep

maybe even forever
and ever forever

i can taste it
and return it
but surely i
will miss it

because it is true love
that i cannot buy
that makes my heart full

it is the love that i set free
and freely it is the same love
that returns to worship me

Lotta's Haiku #s 1 To 5

1
evening in saffron
half moon is a half world
heaven closes in on me

2
dried flowers in dried field
the sun's brittle rays
i kiss the morning goodbye
tight-lipped


3
memories of grasshopper
waiting to adore the sun
i sit
in meditation


4
former worlds are deep in our hearts
sand dunes are marked with their footprints
i look for tomorrow
and watch for rain


5
the bells of prayer rings at six
butterflies blend with the flowers to rest
i raise my arms
to greet the evening
