Love - A Haiku and A Story


He asks for her hand 
She responds with a soft touch
Love is a promise


Once upon a time there was a male glove standing dejected
he was lost and deprived because his other half was missing now
he searched and searched and waited and waited
but never finding the other pair, he walked on the pavement slow

He waked past the garments shop trying to find someone as his companion
he found lots of beautiful gloves,back and white,but none to his need
he was dejected and was moving with absolute abjection
while suddenly to his amazement,he saw a dark brown female glove bleed

He asked her what happened ...all she said was that she was torn apart
and was thrown down here and her master has got another
he felt happy....but selfish in his thoughts, he knew his thinkings are not smart
but all that he knew now is that he has fallen in love with her

He told her ,"I am lost too ...until I met you ,do you like to take my hand"
to his surprise,she laid her hand on his and "yes" she did mutter
and the story concludes as it always happens in all fairyland
they both drained in love,finally married and lived happily ever after

Shape of a Rose Poem or Concrete poem of Sun

Concrete or Shape poem: These types of poem represent objects which they represent like a  circle,triangle or a star,etc  and the poem can be written in these shapes.I chose the shape of rose to represent love because we refer red rose to love. And finally I concluded with a Sun poem in shape of the Sun.

Love Red Rose

Charity - Haiku

Two kids cart death ants
Buried them ground in cross and prayed
Charity exposed

Leprosy aided 
Bears symbol of Charity
"Mother Teresa"

My first Haiku is about  kids who when come around dead ants,they carry them in leaves and bury them in the ground praying for them to rest in peace.Kids never need to  be taught charity,most of them do and think with their hearts and only when they grow to adults , they start thinking with their minds.Charity needs hearts ,only hearts that Love.This love is spread by missionaries of charity , one well known example is "Mother Teresa" reflected in my second Haiku

Charity begins here too  Help feed someone out there

The Self - Haikus

Believe in thy self
Its the seed you sow deep in
To grow your life tree

Myself, it destroys
All love relationships , whereas
" Ourselves " builds it

How much was I worth
I travelled My Self deep Inside
I found a blank cheque

Beware ! They are contagious

Sometimes I feel the need to expose myself , need to defend myself and the need to protect myself.Whenever I feel layed down,I search for doing things that motivates me instead of making me more vulnerable to it.I love my mom and the Internet for that.My mom is a struggle survivor from the young and the internet is my stress-buster.Lots of inspiring quotes and videos to find.Yes,I believe that a little word of hope provides the strength to move on.Quotes like "What you sow is what you reap " is very true.Whenever we do things ,we don't think of the consequences after we have reacted.They may be worse if we have reacted in bad way or brings in good fortune if we did reacted in a good way.Ah! lots of lessons learned and still learning on my way.You may feel that I am true when you read the below post .(The last para submitted for Sunday 160)

Beware ! They are contagious

Walking with heavy heart on the road
thinking about my life I sigh
a cute baby with turner's syndrome
playing ad mist her home
turned at me and smiled
The smile on that baby's face
it’s so contagious
I smiled back

Here comes the soaps episode after episode
seeing ladies at home and office tormented persistently
the anxiety in their voice  made the place
so angry drowning in
that sadness in me
it’s so contagious
I started to react, crying

Coming home I saw my spouse waiting for me
happiness drained when he caught me
complaining life and
hurting my ego
I felt the edge to defend myself
it’s so contagious
I striked back at him

I was returning home after a long trip
back at home my parents and friends
hugged me tight
their love and smile 
filled that place with colours
I felt very wanted
it’s so contagious
I reciprocated back
Whatever or However we may be with our list
Of Love or Hate, Happy or Sad ,Egoist or Altruist
They are like virus-very infectious and
Beware! They are contagious

Lord Hanuman-Acrostic

golden Heart Lord Hanuman

is Majestic in his powers of
breaking All the barriers and
is Noteworthed for his devotion in helping all

The Above poem is written based on a picture prompt by Magpie Tales.I can identify the Lord Hanuman in gold lying on a soft blue cloth (sky) with white perals (clouds) around and so my poem took shape in form a Acrostic' HANUMAN' .Read  it again and you will get to know more .

Facts of Life-Haikus

We fight among us
But clasp together in strife
Power of kinship

Our Children's Future
Vanquish Shackles in Marriage 
Trusts Matured Parents 

None allowed to daunt
Targeting my dignity
I clasp to my life

The Seven Wonders of the World

A poetic form - Tanka

It is a Japanese poem of five lines, the first and third composed of five syllables and the other seven.Syllable is the count of how we pronounce a word.For example, poem is po -em counting to 2 syllable and wonderful is won-der-ful counting to 3 syllable.Tanka is in the form of 1-2-3-4-5 lines with 5-7-5-7-7 syllable.In my poem I write about the magnificent man made constructions in Tanka form with free style writing.

Build as a defense
from the attacks of tribals
The longest structure
runs curving the earth
Its the great wall of china

A monument built
in memory of his wife
on Agra in India
by Shah Jahan to Mumtaz
Taj Mahal ,a love befall

The Chichen Itza
links with Mayan's Calender
with 91 steps
and with top platform counts to
Three Hundered and sixty five

In Rio de Janiero
He stands 120 feet tall
with his arms widespread
made of concrete and soapstone
welcomes Christ ,The redeemer

An amphitheater
build with eighty entrances
The grand colosseum
the monument entralls
50,000 spectators

Two thousand feet above
river Urubamba in Peru
enclosing remains
of observatory is
The ruins of Machu Picchu

About 800
individual monuments
carved magnificiently from
kaleidoscopic sandstone
Petra in Jorden

Celebrating Diwali

Happiness from everywhere fills the air
All young and old awake early in morning
Painting the entrance with beautiful kolams and
Preparing to celebrate this joy of uniting with relatives
Young ones are noted of roaming around with sweets in both hand

Dancing around ,the whole family celebrates this day
Inigniting candles , praying god to keep them happy everyday
With sweets exchanged between relatives and friends
An evening  begins with bursting crackers and colourful fireworks
Lighting our home and our life anew burning the negatives to ashes
Indicating the joy of giving and receiving for days to come

A Remembrace


Memories are left
To be engraved on the stone
A remembrance

They are noT
But your inscriptioN
Written among lot of burieD
Souls that have lived before on eartH.
I have come to see you in the graveyard witH
My grandma who bouqueted some flowers for yoU
And places on the top of your house that encloses youR
Remains of this world.She wants to reconnect this world of herS
To yours just to let you know that she still loves you and remembers yoU.

Seed Optimism

I have written these three Haiku's themed Optimism in  5-7-5 format

Sacred Candle Woman

I feel that Poems are written to express the feelings in a more beautiful way.Poems are itself a story,a moral and the feeling of the writer.Its a wonderful way of conveying message.Poems add beauty to love especially when we write poems for our mother's love.She herself is  a poem that cannot be viewed with normal eyes.Her dedication in bringing us in a most beautiful way as possible and mainly the sacrifices that she makes for her children's happiness all through her whole life.You can understand best the feelings of your mother if you are a mom or going to be one .Mother- a poem that lasts forever .

Sacred Feelings
Dancing lady sacrifices herself
Drops of hot tears of happiness
Melting her way down in the dark
Spreading light for her Children's Life
Only Mother's Love

The above poem is written in 160 characters incl. space in association with Sunday 160

A Letter to my Dearest,

I know you for more than 40 years long .
I was astonished by the way you faced your struggles in life strong
I could recollect of how you tackled the facts with your courage
Moving about helplessly but still made plans to manage

No man is sacrificed of me on his journey
For all, was sent here to pay back for their destiny
Now you are  weak, I know that I made you so
I was playing my part in your life's book recto-verso

Slowly I started admiring you and I wished to stay with you forever
But since I am in love with you I wanted you to stay happy ever
So I have taken an important decision in my life.
And that is,I am moving out relieving you of your life's strife.

Although in life there is no fast forward or rewind
I was tempted to leave my reflections behind
Not to make you remember your struggles on your way
But for you to know that I once existed on your pathway

Sorrows in life

GROW BY Bits Per Pixel in Human Life

Colours defines moods and personality of living and non-living things .It has considerable impacts on humans .Colours are divided into two categories
1)Warm colours -red,yellow,oranges due to its universal association to sun and fire and
2)Cool colours -blue,greens and violets due to its universal association to water and nature 
Here is my poem that defines Colours in Human Psychology and is written in ACROSTIC form.

Colours that GROW BY Bits Per Pixel in Human Life

Green is present everywhere in Nature symbolizing youth ,fertility and health
Red  flames through fire , fiery and hot , displaying the physical strength
Orange, the combination of red and yellow brings in balance and love at ease
White is pure and innocent careful that no little stain shows off is always welcoming peace

Blue, the colour of the mind stimulating intelligence , is cold, trusting and calm
Yellow ,the optimist is full of joy and hope and within it -spirituality , it embalms

Black ,the absorber of all colours acts as a protective barrier with seriousness
Pink is soothing to the eyes with all its beauty and brightness 
Purple is exotic, reaching heights with dreams giving royal touch and wisdom in us

Note : Bits Per Pixel(BPP) :The number of bits of information stored per pixel of an image. The more bits are, the more colours can be represented.BPP is related to technology of a picture/image.

I am happy to announce you all that I joined two more poetry blogs that prompts poets to write more.The first  one is for Three Word Wednesday(3WW) : Hiss, Absolve, Ridicule.I finally tried to write a poem with those three given words.The last poem is written for One single Impression's prompt "LONELY".
Again, A Haiku Word(5-7-5), you can see that I got in love with the Haiku. It says that he never leaves me ;)

Down hissed the rainfall
Washing dirt's that ridiculed
The greens were absolved

Make thy door's open
For thou' who has lonely hearts
So I may come in

Ha! A final touch ...
A Haiku itself is a Beauty, a picture added to it is A final touch :)

An opened window - A prisoner

Every wednesday, poeters are given picture prompt by Magpie Tales.We have to write a poem or short vignette using the picture featured in their post as our inspiration.The below picture prompted me to write Two Haiku's (5-7-5) of an opened window.

Haiku 1: Thoughts of a person caught in prison mentally

Through darkness I saw
A lost opportunity
An escape shines bright

Haiku 2: Thoughts of a person caught in prison physically

Darkness everywhere
My only way to escape
An opened window
Poem above written for Magpie Tales picture prompt.

Acrostic - Relationships

A small dedication to my Mother and Father.I chose to write this poem in Double Acrostic so that my little poem will have both at the beginning and ending the same letter and meaning  giving the sense that we children of our parents comes in between the two pillars(parents) of their life.And we are protected within them safe and sound guarding us from all hurts. I am thankful to them for what I am today.

Mother a living embleM
Organises her kids to dO
Their works with minimum efforT
Having them learn what is wortH
Enlightening them with care and hopE
Rising the young hearts with unconditional love and cheeR

Filling his little one's mind full oF
Adventure, he is the perfect papA
Teaching them what is besT
Hunting with them in areas higH
Engaging them in the real life gamE
Recognizing their talent to make a successful carreeR
