Lazy Saturday (Haiku)

Lazy Saturday
Basking in the southwest sun
Winter put on hold

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Sensitivity (Tanka)

Lost to murderer on tv
And video games
Sometimes getting out-of-hand
Bankrupting morality

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

There’s No Place Like Home (Tanka)

There’s no place like home

Family huddled around

Sharing Christmas cheer

Unless home is on the street

And your cheer is someones trash


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

A little reminder to be generous to those in need at this time and all times of the year,  if for no other reason than it is the right thing to do.

Night Under The Stars (Haiku)

Night under the stars
Jewels garnish heavens cloak
Royal Majesty

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

I Am

I am–Nothing and everything

I am–Saint and sinner

I am–Man and Divine

I am–Living and dying

I am–Strong and fragile

I am–Love and hate

I am–Good and evil

I am–All of these things

For one cannot exist without the other.


Would you know the laudable in me

Without staring my indiscretions in the face?


Look within me to find the mirror of yourself,

All that I am is you, perfect and imperfect.


There is much for which I am not proud,

But I take comfort that I am who I am.


Just as it is fruitless for you to deny

That you are who you are.

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Rocky Crags (Tanka)

Rocky crags–purple

Reaching for sky, razor-sharp

Just to touch heaven

Reunion with the Creator

Perfection being thankful


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~


Sad Is This Season

Sad is this season
That its kindness is fleeting
Gone in the new year
Replaced once again with greed
And loveless human spirit
Quickly we forget
The message of tradition
Tossing it aside
When it no longer serves us
Returning to loathsome ways

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Padlocked Is My Heart (Senryu)

Padlocked is my heart
Protected from being hurt
Your love is the key

~~Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Inspiration Found (Haiku)

Inspiration found
Within every living thing
Nature’s perfection

~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Calloused Heart (Sonnet)

Calloused heart, fear not my advances please,

Harm, no harm shalt ever I impart.

Wouldst I have journeyed o’er these seven seas,

Courting thee in earnest right from the start.


My solemn promise to thee I offer, lest I die,

Taking thy hand within mine.

A chance I do ask that you givest love a try,

Lest I return to the seas and her watery brine.


Thou hast been injured, I knowest this for sure,

Sympathies assuredly do I give.

Purest of love doth I prescribe as the cure,

I swearest for as long as I live.


Never shalt this heart ever part they fragile side, this I do promise to thee.

Affection do I pledge and swearth not to hide, devoted to thee for eternity.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
