rainbow of colours 
dazzling light on angel's wings
spreading the good news

against the dark sky
bright rays of hope reaching out
inspiring spirits

energizing heart
until our light force flickers  
bright and strong with love

steady rushing sound
water twirls, marches to beat 
gateway to new lands

eagle wings soaring  
ragged mountains in slumber
gentle solitude 

ashes in the urn
scattered in river he loves
spirit soaring sky

what dreams do you have
fair child of mine

your brown eyes twinkle   
rivalling stars glowing in your room  

your belly laughter peals
reading books on princesses, frogs and goats 

do you know that treasures 
are under your pillows every night

do you know that your hands
hold the magic key to unlock any doors

when you gaze up at the blue skies 
believe you can fly like a bird if you want to

when you dwell upon wide open seas 
imagine possibilities of being ship's captain 

chase every rainbow in your childhood,
run after turtles and hares in all the races 

every day is beautiful and precious, 
and sharing your gifts mean blessings tenfold   

i may not be the perfect mother all the time
but know this, i will always love and believe in you

obsession with words 
letters, phrases, syllables 
to write perfect verse 

racing against time
catching thoughts in mid-air flight
to rest in our hands    


sand trickling hourglass,
every second counts as time, 
won't wait nor tarry   

moments carved in glass,
wrapping the past with colours    


Posted for Haiku Heights:   Prompt # 94 is Obsession.

painting colours sprayed 
on concrete walls; nature or  
mystery artist?


eagle wings dazzling 
flight of heights soaring to 
unknown destination


where to find the key
to unlock life's mystery?
if you know, tell me ~
