Haiku Illusions

Endless twists and turns
Mind bending words and phrases
Thoughts in solitude

Mirage of blue seas
Beneath slow and sinking sun
Crystal Rubik’s Cube

Sight filled illusions
Reality’s contusions
Five-fourths of the pie

A cool beam of light
Moments of tranquility
Reprieve from one-self

The mind plays the cards
The joker is on the prowl
Puppet strings are pulled

Sand is fresh water
Five-sided glass holds cool sand
Seen through half blurred eyes

Life is all but lost
When Mom says “Game is over”
Haiku Illusions
