Freedom, Not Terror


Orphaned by their war.

I rebel for my people.

Freedom, not terror.

– Jon Riki Karamatsu, Haiku Poem #137, 6/19/2018 (This poem was inspired by the protagonist in my second novel who struggles with his sadness and anger over the death of his parents caused by the Iraq war. I’m editing the first draft.) –

Love is an energy that transcends time and place.


When it’s quiet, I can hear myself.

My thoughts and feelings speak,

connecting my mind and soul.

One being physical and temporary,

the other, a ghost, moving between realms.

A whispering message:

“Love is an energy that transcends time and place.”

Time Fades Memories.


Time fades memories.

I grasp my pictures of you.

Don’t take them away.

You Paint My Blues Pink


You paint my blues pink.

And shelter me from my pain.

Art from your kind heart.

Last night you came to me.


Last night you came to me

You gave me three songs

One for our pain

Two for our love

And three for our tomorrow
