Fight Muscles & Wise Muscles – Haiku #40


.

.

O’ Love! lean and pale,

wise-muscles i grew; tender

rose buds i prefer.

~ ~ ~

O’ Love! strong and hard,

fight-muscles he grew; boxing,

blood spill he prefers.

~ ~ ~

O’ Love! i ask this,

in all purity and faith;

please explain your choice.

~ ~ ~

O’ Love! forgive me,

yet, i need to know; did

fight-muscles appeal?

~ ~ ~

O’ Love! i ask,

not to hurt you; it hurts much,

(the) lack of clarity.

~ ~ ~

O’ Love! i respect,

your choice; but know this my love,

you have let me down.

~ ~ ~

wise-muscles i grew,

fight-muscles shout, “you are weak”,

i am weak but wise.

~ ~ ~

and

a loser

yes.

~ ~ ~

( last one is 1-3-1 structure, i wanted to put those words in there. badly. so ………… i had to make it up..the 1-3-1 :-/ )

~ ~ ~

by muscles i meant real physical muscles. read ‘muscles’ as arms. And i feel, the meaning won’t be understood by all, it lacks clarity i guess. 😐
And i also apologize to that fictional “O’ Love” character for asking her about her choice.
i think the wise-muscles man was truly hurt and he asked her the question with utmost faith and .. love?! But i know even then, he is sorry he had to ask that.
he also wanted to say that he did not have the strength in him to use the word “temptation” and so used “appeal”.

Blurred And Blown – Haiku #39

aching heart,

heavy as a stone;

a masked truth.

~ ~ ~

blurred and blown,

unseen force; she seeks

clarity.

Who Promised You Answers? – Haiku #38


.

.

What Is Truth?

~ ~ ~

how much more? i ask,

nay answer comes; dawn to dusk,

tired sweat, silent tears.

~ ~ ~

who promised answers?

no one; i should move on now,

my question was wrong.

~ ~ ~

do i deserve this?

nay answer comes; turning away,

i go home, hurt stays.

~ ~ ~

why me? i ask now,

clouds thunder threateningly,

wrong question again!

~ ~ ~

There are no answers for these questions. And there is no one who will answer them for you. These questions are venomous tentacles of depression that lurk in the shadows of the abyss of disappointment and emotional hurt.The more you venture into the shadows, the easier a victim you make of yourself. Nevertheless, hope and faith that good and truth forever shall come out triumphant will help you get out of these seemingly deep abysses. So now, the answers! ( it hurts to know these answers. so learn not to dwell on these questions )

how much more?
as much as you can endure.

do i deserve this?
yes. harsh but such an answer would help in seeing things the right way, if you aren’t already!

why me?
HahaHa.. are you cruel enough to point at someone and say “why can’t it be him?” !!!

Go No Far Places – Haiku #29


.

.

go no far places,

cold nights, empty streets; go now,

search for warmth within,

vaults of heart hold kindle fire,

no grave wind conquers

Wake Up Time- Haiku #28


.

.

O’ humans, watch step,

coherently aberrant,

change now, you are warned,

~ ~ ~

change now, you are warned,

change not in fear, true change is

realization,

~ ~ ~

realization,

self-realization, friend

told me; wake up time

~ ~ ~

told me, wake up time,

apocalypse tonight, day,

O’ humans, watch step,

~ ~ ~

O’ humans, watch step,

coherently aberrant,

change now, you are warned.

Miracle Possible – Haiku #27


.

.

miles apart, can i

touch you? miracle always

is possible. soul!

~ ~ ~

i truly believe in this miracle, maybe this is the only miracle i believe in,
that,
one could touch other’s soul ( first of all, their own soul they should seek)
pure, true thoughts establish a link,
that shall lead to the ‘knowing’ of a soul
miles? Uh! how many, 1 million? is them all?

~ ~ ~

All my haiku here.

Behold! My Subjects – Haiku #25


.

.

Scene I :

.

~ ~ ~

drift back eons, earth

formed, grew hot, then cooled, spun, won,

at last life bloomed bright

~ ~ ~

at last life bloomed bright,

and mother earth had offsprings,

impasse lay ahead

~ ~ ~

graceful was each child,

each in their own way, she knew

not who should have crown

~ ~ ~

queen mother then saw,

each deserved crown of their own,

she saw solution

~ ~ ~

.

Scene II :

.

On day of pronouncement of the new ascendant :

~ ~ ~

queen mother holds scroll

of declaration, who then,

who ascends earth’s thrown?

~ ~ ~

Queen Mother Earth speaks, in her regal self :

 ~ ~ ~

” Behold! My Subjects,

your peace and harmony, is

my priority”

~ ~ ~

“my decision is

a brave one, a hopeful one,

hear me well, subjects :”

~ ~ ~

The Scroll Of Declaration, Queen Mother Earth Reads Out :

~ ~ ~

“we shall have no one,

no king, no queen, you shall have

only seasons, yes!”

~ ~ ~

” hear me well Princes,

and Princesses, you all shall

now be called seasons “

~ ~ ~

” each has three full moon’s

time, give all to your subjects,

each take turns, in peace “

~ ~ ~

” Eldest Daughter be

called SPRING henceforth, life blossoms,

to green and great heights “

~ ~ ~

” Eldest Son he be

called SUMMER henceforth, light smiles,

path of goodness shown “

~ ~ ~

” Youngest Son he be

called AUTUMN henceforth, cycle

recedes, hope shall stay “

~ ~ ~

” Youngest Daughter be

called WINTER henceforth, cycle

ends, hope shall SPRING “

~ ~ ~
and so the cycle will end and start over again. 🙂

~ ~ ~ 

End of declaration and there is much joy around 🙂

~ ~ ~

Spring – Summer – Autumn – Winter – Spring  : the actual cycle 🙂

Note 1: In the second haiku, second line, i should have mentioned ‘four offsprings’, but i chose otherwise,
just to keep the theme of this large-i-don’t-know-what-its-called poem.

one month generally has one full moon. so that usage.

hope, it din’t have a negative effect on the  reading experience

———————————————————————————————————-

Note 2: i would love to extend this theme to how we humans are disappointing Queen Mother Earth lately.
And also, WHY nature, the seasons are being off ‘cycle’ in some parts of the world, African Nations? Drought in Horn Of Africa? Yes, i would love to
express those concerns in the same form too. But another time i guess, as a second part, because i don’t know how people feel after reading long poems,
i would proceed to post it once i am satisfied and believe that people have no problem reading lengthy poems though i would write it nevertheless, soon.
as for me, i enjoy lengthy poems very much. 🙂

I would be very glad to hear what you have to say about “reading a lengthy poem” in general, because i am apprehensive that people actually avoid reading lengthy poems. Oh, tell me you are not, i would love that. 😀 🙂

————————————————————————————————————–

I couldn’t, as a pure and absolute lover of nature, write a haiku on ‘summer’ alone.

And if there is one another chance for me to express all the above in fewer words, i would say :

” HAIL MOTHER NATURE,

IN THEE SHALL WE ABIDE. “

Hither! Take Mine Hand – Haiku #12


.

.

thy eyes arrest mine,

hither! ” take mine hand, i too,

shall stand harsh waves “

~ ~ ~

meaning :

your eyes meet mine, a link established,

i could read the depths of your heart and soul, (hither)here! ” take my hand,

all those troubles and pains, you no longer shall endure alone, i stand by you, together we shall face those harsh waves “
