Our Collective Soul

Our collective soul

Lies buried in the rubble

Of hate, greed and lies.


One day we will rise from ash

Like the fiery Phoenix.


Enlightened, wiser,

Perhaps we will see we’re one,

Made of flesh and bone.


How sad that we must suffer

Before we open our eyes.


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~

Sting (Haiku) / Crystal (Senryu)

Sting of Scorching Sands (Haiku)

Sting of scorching sands

Turning silica to glass

Natures melting pot


Crystal and Fine Wines (Senryu)

Crystal and fine wines

Regalia of the snooty

The harder they fall


~~ Dominic R. DiFrancesco ~~
