Haiku & – Poems

It seems like a lot of people “home in” on to this page. No, you do not have my permission to copy it, quote it or do anything else with it. If you want a website go to Blue Host.com and buy your own web page. It costs about $30, and the WordPress format  program is a free download from Blue Host.com. There is “Microsoft for Dummies.com”, a free site on line, that has free WordPress customizing instructions.

There are eight seperate poems here. Each three lines are actually a Halku, a Japanese form poem, consisting of 5-7-5 syllables. The program would not let me put a space between each three lines. Read down the first column and then go to the top of the second column. Haiku, traditionaly, include some aspect of Nature. Two different years, I made it a point to write at least one poem, a Haiku, a day. Virtually every poem was written singlely and not actually related to one another, but I’m kind of more of a storyteller. So, I have attempted to put them into a sequence of settling down to sleep and falling into dreams.

The wind through the trees                        I close my eyes, in

Appears to be twittering                             The coolness of the evening’s

Many messages                                         Still, as the light fades

Clouds breaking the sun,                           The scent of the trees

The breezes zephering in                           In the chill of the night air

Whispers of nature….                                 Soothes me, as I dream

.The sun peeks through the                        Contrivance flowers

Trees as conversations float                      Behind velvet curtains in

By in muted waves.                                    A bed of desires.

Rain washes away                                      Pearls drop through my

The heat and the dust leaving cool             Fingers, beautiful and warm

Night air for sleeping.                                  Heavy against skin….

  4. Hi there just wanted to give you a quick heads up. The text in your article seem to be running off the screen in Safari. I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet browser compatibility but I thought I’d post to let you know. The style and design look great though! Hope you get the issue solved soon. Many thanks

    • It must be your Safari. It always comes up perfecty on my Internet Explorer. I’ve been working with WordPress since August and never had a minutes problem. In additon, there are few responses to my website because I have only “approved” of a tenth of “responses”. Anyone who is selling anything gets spamed. I hate people who are trying to sell me a product or a service. I 100% don’t want any products or services, only people who want to read what I’m writing. As “mocking fruit party” if that means gay people or people who have opinions you don’t like go the f**K somewhere else.

  5. I know this if off topic but I’m looking into starting my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny? I’m not very internet savvy so I’m not 100% sure. Any recommendations or advice would be greatly appreciated. Cheers

    • This is all WordPress, all I did was type in my text. I know zip about websites. I cost me about $55 for two years to have the have my domain name and website. People keep signing in and wanting to sell me a web browser, sex, viagra or some other medication. They all go to a place where WordPress alerts me there are “comments”. I spam over 90%, which is kind of irratating. It’s nice when someone actually reads something.

      So, why are you coming to my website, the majority of stuff is poetry? Do you even like poetry? I’ve been writing since I was in the 4th grade and have won two poetry contests, one was national. Over the past 20 years, I have read and performed a lot of my work on the stage. I don’t pubish, here, the stuff that I want to submit to contests. Most contests want unpublished work and if it’s on my website, the work is considered to be published.

    • Lurlene Ada: Most comments just say they like the work. So, what’s to say? Maybe, thank you… Over 90% get sent to spam because they want to sell me computer programs, backlinks for a hundred times the volumne, sex or some kind of prescription medication like viagra, kaflex, just to name a few. None of which I have any interest in. I get enough ads at my regular home website, over a 100 a day. Why the hell would I want any more of that crap? They can go “whistle dixie”. If anyone had anything constructive to say or are sister and fellow writers, they may get a response. I write poetry, short stories, performance pieces for stage, essays and some details about my life. Do you have a webpage with your creative writing? It appears to me the poople who come here read one thing, post that they like it and have nothing else to say. I’m still leary that the person’s comments that I have posted want to sell me something, which I want none of! Now if they ask me a question, share some of their work or life, I will respond. So far I’ve been asked two questions and received nothing else….Except they like what they have read, no one has sent a negative response. Anybody can read sonmething and say they like it or don’t like it even if they are brain damaged.It hardly constitutes a dialogue in my way of thinking.

  6. Unquestionably believe that which you stated. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they plainly don’t know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks

    • I just used what Blue Host provided with the WordPress program that went along with it. I did connect with WordPress for Dummies on line that was considerable help with page headers and background.

  7. Great goods from you, man. I’ve understand your stuff previous to and you are just too magnificent. I really like what you’ve acquired here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it sensible. I can not wait to read much more from you. This is actually a great web site.

  8. I actually wanted to construct a brief message to express gratitude to you for all of the magnificent points you are giving at this site. My time consuming internet search has at the end of the day been compensated with really good suggestions to write about with my classmates and friends. I would express that many of us website visitors are rather endowed to be in a really good place with many wonderful people with beneficial tactics. I feel very much happy to have discovered your web pages and look forward to really more entertaining times reading here. Thanks once again for a lot of things.

  9. I like the valuable information you provide in your articles. I will bookmark your blog and check again here regularly. I’m quite certain I will learn lots of new stuff right here! Good luck for the next!

  10. I’m writing to make you know what a nice encounter my wife’s daughter undergone reading through your web site. She even learned a wide variety of details, not to mention what it’s like to have an incredible helping heart to have other folks very easily learn specified impossible things. You actually surpassed her desires. Many thanks for offering those warm and helpful, trusted, informative as well as fun thoughts on the topic to Evelyn.

    • I’ve had this site since August 2011. I just put in my writing that I’m not planning to submit for national writing contests. I just use the WordPress progran that came with the Blue Host site and domain name. I did find “WordPress For Dummies” on line which helped me with the look of the WordPress program. I’m still learning and working on the program. There is still more information in the “WordPress for Dummies” I haven’t had the time to play with. I get over 90% of people wanting to sell me something which I HATE. So, If you are selling anything don’t bother coming back because i don’t want it and will “Spam” you. I’m unemployed right now and I’m not buying any service or products, now or for a long tim, when I go back to work because I have more bills than I can handle now.

  11. Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you are just extremely fantastic. I actually like what you have acquired here, certainly like what you are stating and the way in which you say it. You make it entertaining and you still care for to keep it wise. I can not wait to read far more from you. This is actually a great website.

    • Go to Blue Host, pick a domain name and pay them for a web site. Once you get a site, download the Word Press program. You can pick a theme package that has it own heading that will cycle ramdomly as you create Pages. If you have pictures on your computer, go to Appearences, click on header a page will come up with a “Browse” button, click on it, open you picture, click open, Then go back to your header page, click “Download” You pictue will come up. Headers are only so many pixtals. The section will show up as a box on your picture, go to center of highlighted ssection, click, but hold and move the highlighted section up or down to the part that you want as your header. It will appear on you hearder page, go to the bottom of the page and to a button that (I think,says Create & something else, I can’t recall exactly) but it is at the bottom of the page on the your left hand side. At the top of the page, just at the top of the pictures that you have downloaded there is a button that says, “Random” make sure you click on that so the headers go ramdomly through the pictures that you download. You can go to “Backgrounds” in the same “Appearences” section, download pictures. On this page is a color section. So, you change the backgrounnd color. Word Press will automatically default to black as your background color without you doing anything..

    • I’m curious as to what you are interested in including and why you would want to include something from me in your blog? Are you a writer of some sort?

  12. Excellent beat ! I would like to apprentice while you amend your web site, how can i subscribe for a blog site? The account aided me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast provided bright clear concept

    • Just go to Blue Host. com. A blog site will cost you money. Two years cost me about $56 dollaars. WBlue Host you automatically get a WordPress program that you can download for free. Word Press for Dummies is avialible on line, which will help you set up your website.

  13. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be actually something that I think I would never understand. It seems too complex and very broad for me. I’m looking forward for your next post, I’ll try to get the hang of it!

    • Then you must be very young or live a very restricted life and have never stepped out into nature and comtemplated how it relates to you life, if you find me so complex and incomprehensible. If you are a man, you may not have a wide range of emotions due to your male hormone levels. As a social worker, I worked exclusively for 3 1/2 years with transgendered persons, some of them were female to male. When the females began to take male hormones, they reported having been numbed to a large range of emotions women usually experience, to only be able to “feel’ about four emotions – frustration, anger, love & lust. For the male to female persons, they were overwhelmed by a range of emotions that they had never experienced as men.

  14. I have to point out my admiration for your generosity supporting individuals that need help on that situation. Your real commitment to getting the solution across ended up being astonishingly valuable and have regularly allowed somebody just like me to get to their aims. The useful useful information can mean so much to me and substantially more to my office workers. Thanks a lot; from everyone of us.

  15. My wife and i ended up being really happy Jordan could round up his research from your ideas he discovered while using the web page. It is now and again perplexing to simply find yourself making a gift of secrets and techniques which often other people might have been selling. So we fully grasp we have the website owner to thank for that. The most important illustrations you made, the simple site navigation, the relationships you make it easier to engender – it’s mostly great, and it’s really letting our son in addition to the family feel that this subject is cool, which is certainly truly important. Thank you for all!

    • I’m not sure what you are taking about. The information I’ve given is free on the internet, Is your son studying poetry? There are books, at least in our libraries, about writing poetry. Haiku and Tonka are very simple as Japanese form poems. I have taught Haiku and Tonka to Alaska Natives that speak both English and their tribal dialects.The lines require syllables not necessarily individual words. For example the word, individual, has five (5) syllables. A Haiku has three short lines requiring 5 syllables in the first line, 7 syllables in the second line and 5 syllables in the thrid line. Tonka has the 5-7-5 with two more lines of 7 syllables, making it 5-7-5-7-7. Subsequently, I sometimes give myself the task of writing one Haiku or Tonka a day. I have made it my goal this year to write one poem a day. Which means after a year, I will have 365 poems. Then I can go through and pick out the really good poems. The last year that I wrote a poem a day, as a goal, I kept 111 of the poems. Of the poems in Haiku&, each three lines are a seperate poem – a Haiku, written on different days. Traditionally, Japanese form poem include some aspect of nature like in the first line “wind through the trees…”, in the second poem, “Clouds breaking the sun…”, “Rain washes away…” in the third poem… in the last poem, “Pearls drop…” (Pearls are considered one of the five organic gems.)

    • The only George Harrison that I am aquaninted with is the George Harrison that was one of the Beatles, a rock and roll group from England that came over her in the late 1950’s and were wildly popular in the 60’s and had sepeerate careers until their deaths, only one of whom is still living. I’ve written lyrics for musicians. One was rock. The others have been my pop lyric or folk type lyrics. Truthfully, I haven’t written for any muscians for the past three years. I’ve been concentrating on short stories, poetry and performance pieces.
      I did find George Harrison’s Penmanship on line. My poems at “Haiku &” were mostly written in a year when we had wildfires burning out of control here in Alaska in 2005 & 2006 – all on different days. I just put them together to set a mood about winding down, relaxing, going to sleep and beginning to go into a dream. I’ve lived in Alaska since 1956 and get the visit in the lower 48 about evey other year for a week to 4 weeks at a time, maybe. There are wooded wild areas scattered through out the city and immediately at the the edge of towm, between here and the next town. At the present, bears coming out of their dens, attempting to establish their territories and moose with new born calves are roaming in town. There is a row of birch and aspen trees right outside my bedroom window that are native trees. So, I don’t have to go anywhere to enjoy nature except step out outside or open my window.

    • I have 17 pages on my website and you are not being at all clear on what you are refering to in your comment. I have written a lot of poetry, one short story, a page about me, a page on being in a leadership training program. I have written comments at the beginning of many of my work with an explaination. What’s don’t you understand? Are you angling to sell me something? On my Home page, it says I’m not buying one damn thing from any one.(You email address starts out purevolume.com. I must have had 100 emails that say the same convoluted thing about not understanding like your comment does.) If you don’t understand English, get some more education!

  16. Simply desire to say your article is as astonishing. The clearness in your post is simply great and i could assume you are an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please continue the gratifying work.

  17. Hello would you mind letting me know which webhost you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in 3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot quicker then most. Can you suggest a good web hosting provider at a fair price? Thanks a lot, I appreciate it!

  18. Magnificent goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and you’re just extremely magnificent. I actually like what you have acquired here, really like what you are saying and the way in which you say it. You make it enjoyable and you still care for to keep it wise. I can’t wait to read far more from you. This is really a wonderful website.

  19. I simply wished to thank you very much once more. I am not sure the things that I could possibly have handled without those creative concepts revealed by you over this concern. It became a difficult issue for me, but considering a specialised form you treated that took me to leap over happiness. I’m grateful for this service and thus sincerely hope you are aware of an amazing job you were doing training some other people through the use of your web page. Most likely you’ve never got to know all of us.

  20. It is perfect time to make some plans for the future and it is time to be happy. I have read this post and if I could I wish to suggest you some interesting things or suggestions. Maybe you can write next articles referring to this article. I want to read even more things about it!

    • I write my own stuff about my life, feelings and perceptions. It’s not fiction and, I don’t think, debatable. My plans for the future are my own and nobody’s business, as is my happiness or no happiness.

  21. I am really impressed with your writing skills as well as with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one today..

    • The headings are my pictures, and the writing is orginial. The Word Press program came with Blue Host.com. I hope you are not selling anything because I’m not buying anything!

    • You don’t have my permission to include my stuff. Write your original stuff, that’s the only way you will learn how to write. Get some books, do some study on writing and practice the techniques with your own material – your stories, your thoughts, your feelings. Being original is authentic, using other people work is being lazy, banal and fake. Everyone have something to say. Say what is the truth for you, and you will atand out, because few people take the time to be real.

    • You are delusional. What the HELL kind of informatiopn are you talking about? These are my original writings. Stay away from me, I won’t buy what you are selling. You don’t have my permission to use my work. Don’t came back, I’ll SPAM anything you send.

  22. “When I originally commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get three e-mails with the same comment. Is there any way you can remove people from that service? Appreciate it!”

    • Don’t know anyhting about being notified when there are new comments, or not. I couldn’t find anything in the administrative side of the program. I’m still reading and learning how to set this up. So, you are on your own. I’m presently unemployeed and can’t afford to pay any “help”. I suggest you send and email to Blue Host.com and tell them your problem, maybe they can fix it on their end.
