Haiku, Tyrant & Hope

We Should Learn from Ann Frank

Faith gives us the hope,

Even living among tyrants,

We have strength to cope.

Remember Hitler,

Such a cruel man, killing Jews,

Please be kind, be gentler.

A hero was Ann Frank,

‘Cause she risked her life to help,

Held in small room, dank.

Faith & Choice Haiku

 

Love and Faith from the Heart

Faith more felt than seen.

Like love, it comes from the heart

Choice can make it hard.

To Honor my Mom

2 Poems to Honor my Mom

I Miss You

I – It has been six years tomorrow since you went home to God.

 

M – Mary means wished for child.

I – I wish you knew how much you are loved; I hope you do now.

S – Serenity is what I hope you feel; you had little of it in life.

S – Strength, you had more of it than you knew.

 

Y- You were far more unique than people gave you credit for.

O – Outstanding at so many things Mom that I am not: cooking, sewing, crocheting, painting, drawing, handwriting, dancing etc.

U – Undeniably big heart for those you love.

 

Just 1 More Time

 

I wish we could rock in the squeaky rocking chair together once more

I wish we could crunch popcorn when watching a movie full of gore,

I tried not to watch, but you loved to scare me, that you did adore.

I wish we could have one more beach trip to watch you collect shells at the shore.

I wish we all had 1 more camping trip, it was funny watching you swat flies galore,

I wish I heard your laughter, even if it’s at me, along with dad’s guffawing roar,

I admit it, I was just a bit of a ham when I was about the age of four,

I wish I could hear you sing and play the accordion before I slept, and you shut my door.
