cold summer night breeze,
fatal storm for too many,
world in poverty.

I Miss You More Than My Eyes Show…


i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
because it is for a good reason that they act so,
nevertheless, good is being done with me watching from a distance, staying low.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
i am one secret admirer you have now,
i will stay so forever, if the acceptance doesn’t grow.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
seeds of love i sow,
how and when they get the rain and sunlight is left to nature, to whom i bow.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
will watch over you like a pure entity, like a rainbow,
for you shall admire me at least as so.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
i don’t measure distance in feet or words or hugs, but in how much i comprehend what your eyes show,
jacket on or not, new or ragged, there will always be winter’s snow.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
respect is what my eyes show,
for you can still share it all, the pain, telling me what transpired in life – what?when? and how?

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though,
i miss you more than you are allowed to know,
sometimes tears flow,
sometimes smiles bubble and blow,
and so all the time, my eyes glow.

i miss you more than my eyes show,
my eyes never lie though.

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. “

Suggestions and corrections are most welcome, I’m still learning Haiku. :)
